10/17/13:  Douglas Elliman Releases Elliman Report for Miami Sales 3Q 2013:  Miami housing prices pressed to five-year highs and sales reached their second most quarterly total since 2006. Over the past three years, the market share of distressed sales has fallen by half, something unimaginable a few years ago as the market continues to recover. Despite the rise in non-distressed sales, cash remains king in nearly two thirds of all sales. Inventory continued to fall and properties sold at their fastest pace in more than seven years. Based on the current key drivers of an improving regional economy and the international consumer, we anticipate an active market over the coming quarters.  See the full report at Elliman.com,  in Spanish, in Portuguese

10/17/13:  Douglas Elliman Releases Elliman Report for Boca Raton Sales 3Q 2013:  The Boca Raton housing market saw some gains in overall inventory although supply fell at the top of the market. The pace of sales activity remained brisk, especially within the condo market. The time it took to sell a property fell sharply as low inventory continued to keep the pressure on the market. More buyers used mortgages than at any other time in the past several years, but cash purchases still dominated activity. We look forward to a continuation of these conditions in the coming months.  See the full report at Elliman.com

Cash remains the favorite choice of buyers, but we are seeing more purchases made with mortgages. We anticipate an active market for the final quarter of the year.  See the full report at Elliman.com
