For the condo-townhouse market, statewide closed sales totaled 10,470, up 4.3 percent from one year earlier, while the $188,000 median price for this housing sector was up 4.4 percent year-over-year.

"Just like the weather, July was a hot month for Florida's housing market with sales and median prices showing gains in both the single-family and condo-townhouse sectors," said 2019 Florida Realtors President Eric Sain, a Realtor and district sales manager with Illustrated Properties in Palm Beach. "In another positive sign, pending inventory for existing single-family homes was up 4.5 percent year-over-year, while pending inventory for existing condo-townhouse properties was up 1.2 percent."
