If you want a home in Broward County, now's the time to get your loan pre-approved. Waiting will end up costing you more and possibly missing out on the property you want. Just like any item, when demand goes up and supply goes down, that item costs more. That is what's been happening with homes in Broward County. Condos and homes are no longer sitting for months with a For Sale sign on the lawn. Real estate agents are so busy, there are times when homes are sold before the sign ever goes up. The result is, prices for single-family homes have sharply increased. From November, 2011 to the same time in 2012,  median-priced homes in the county have increased in value an impressive 23 percent.The demand and decreasing inventory of homes has agents often

If you're looking for the silver lining in the current crisis in the house market, look no further than Palm Beach, Florida where the real estate market is posting promising gains. In recent years, the US housing market has hit a slump, with the national average price for homes declining more than 4%, but not in Palm Beach. The asking price for homes in Palm Beach is twice as high as the national average, according to the Palm Beach Post. Palm Beach homes may be a real source of hope as the rest of the country recovers from the market crash in late 2008. The area that has seen the largest recent increase in home value is Jupiter Inlet Colony, and those gains were closely followed in places like Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Gulfstream.

What a difference a year makes. South Florida home sellers over approximately the past five years had to wait for prospects, much less offers. But things have turned around. The SunSentinelreported on December 9, 2012 that:

The Palm Beach Postblog reported on December 26, 2012 that the South Florida real estate market is recovering. The article stated:

Home prices in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties were up 8.5 percent in October from the same time last year....The 20-city index composite showed a gain of 4.3 percent from last year. The Tampa market was up 5.9 percent.

This is good news, especially in light of the fact that the housing market is generally stronger in the summer then the fall and winter. David Blitzer, chairman of the index committee, said:  “Looking over this report, and considering other data on housing starts and sales, it is clear that the housing recovery is gathering strength.”
