A new streak begins after Miami-Dade’s real estate meltdown


The seventh month of price increases marks the best showing since the fall of 2006. But the market has years to go to match the last streak.


The latest South Florida real estate numbers came out today, and the news continues to look relatively good on prices.

June was the seventh straight month of yearly increases in prices for single-family homes in Miami-Dade. That’s the longest streak since September 2006.

Of course, a mere seven months of price gains meant nothing before the housing crash. Between 1999 and 2006, Miami-Dade’s real estate market never saw prices drop from the year before. That’s a remarkable seven-year stretch -- meaning it would take until 2019 to match it again.
