After a record-setting month in June, South Florida home prices and sales both went up in July.

Existing single-family home sales in Miami-Dade County hit 1,354 in July, up 10.2 percent year-over-year and just shy of June’s record-breaking haul of 1,390, according to a report from the Miami Association of Realtors released Thursday.

Existing condo sales rose to 1,471 in July, up 4.8 percent year-over-year despite the deluge of new condo construction hitting the market.

Broward County also made gains.

There were 1,683 single-family home sales in Broward in July, up 11 percent year-over-year, according to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Association of Realtors. Condo sales hit 1,567, a 10 percent year-over-year gain.

Prices went up in both counties, too.

In Miami-Dade, the median price for a single-family home rose 8.6 percent year-over-year in July, to $278,000. Condos were up 2.6 percent, to $195,000.

In Broward, single-family home prices hit $312,000, a 9.5 percent year-over-year increase. Condos sold for $137,000, up 7 percent.
