Plantation Residential Real Estate is in TROUBLE, what we like to call GOOD TROUBLE for all of us longtime City of Plantation residents.

The National Association of Realtors data reveals that the City of Plantation has several issues brewing with our Residential Real Estate market.

  • Low inventory of homes for sale
  • People want to buy, live and work in Plantation
  • Major double-digit increases in home prices

This is a perfect storm that our market is crazy.

In August of 2020, according to NAR, The City of Plantation had only 147 active single- family homes for sale. Currently in September we now have even less. In August of 2019 we had a total of 292 active single-family homes on the market. This is a decrease from 2019 of just under 50% percent.

Despite lower than usual inventory, closed sales of homes increased by 46.6% over last year. This could be a direct result of historically low interest rates.

The National Association of Realtors is also reporting a decrease in the time a home stays on the market. NAR is reporting that in August of 2019 a home was listed for sale in Plantation for the average of 43 days before it was announced that it had a sale contract pending.
