Nationally, sales of existing single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops rose 4.3 percent from December and were 0.7 percent higher than they were in January 2011, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).“Never before in history had we sold as many homes in Miami as we did last year,” said 2012 MIAMI Association of REALTORS Residential President Patricia Delinois. “As supply is absorbed, there are fewer properties available to sell, and it will be difficult to match the record set last year. But the good news is that home values are rapidly appreciating, as global buyers, investors and corporations focus on Miami.”
The MIAMI Association of REALTORS was chartered by the National Association of Realtors in 1920 and is celebrating more than 90 years of service to Realtors, the buying and selling public, and the communities in South Florida. Comprised of four organizations, the Residential Association, the Realtors Commercial Alliance, the Broward County Board of Governors, and the International Council, it represents more than 26,000 real estate professionals in all aspects of real estate sales, marketing, and brokerage.
