Yes, the market started stabilizing in the third quarter of 2011, by mid 2012 the market was finally balanced between buyers and sellers. Depending on exactly what part (location) of south Florida one is looking at, I would claim certain parts of the market are now in favor of the seller.

The level of pent up demand has been incredible and we are now seeing the results of that demand entering the market.

Seems to be.
All signs currently point in that direction

As we can all see by the number of people who are literally lining up to see available listings for homes in Boca Raton, the market is getting better. It almost seems like a replay of 2005. We have too many buyers lining up for too few homes in Boca and the surrounding towns; as a result, first time buyers with mortgages are finding themselves shut out of the market.

Investors are snapping up lower cost properties and renting them to these same families who cannot purchase because of tight market conditions.

Hi Jennifer,
Yes the market has quite recovered. Home peices are way up over the last year. If you are interested in looking for a home I would love to answer any questions you might have.

The market has definitely stabilized in South Florida. Pent-up demand & low interest rates have contributed to increased sales and prices. Hope it continues!

Absolutely ! Prices are up from last year and sellers are waiting it out to get more more for their places next year , so listings are fewer and selling quickly .
One of my friends had her house listed for one day . It was shown to three people and had two contracts on it before the end of the day .
Even short sales and foreclosures are being listed for more than last year .
Buyers are now in a hurry to find something because of rising prices and smaller inventory ...Looks like it's once again a seller's market .
