The newest year-to-year marketing report from the Florida Association of Realtors shows a double digit increase in closed sales on single-family homes $600,000+ in Palm Beach County.

When comparing year-to-year numbers in January, we see that the overall inventory in Palm Beach County is down and median sale price has gone up. This is a good incentive for those thinking of listing and also a nudge for potential buyers to hop to it.
