In recent years, Florida has become a major destination for new residents who are ready for a retirement — or just a change of pace.

Beach-lovers enjoy Florida's nearly 700 miles of sandy shores, which provide the perfect setting for swimming, fishing, or just relaxing in the sun. The Sunshine State is also home to Walt Disney World, NASA's Kennedy Space Center, and the Everglades — not to mention the quirky Keys where Ernest Hemingway once made his home.

Whether you enjoy the great outdoors or Miami's bustling nightlife, Florida has no shortage of experiences to offer.

If you're thinking of buying or selling in Florida, these Florida housing predictions and stats can help you make an informed decision.

Frequently asked questions about Florida real estate

Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Florida?

It is currently a seller’s market in Florida, and high demand is causing properties to sell quickly and for more money. Although that is the general trend in the state, each city and town is different, so it’s still best to consult with a Florida real estate agent to understand the nuances in your local market.

Is Florida a good state to invest in real estate?

Investing in Florida real estate, especially in a big city like Jacksonville or Miami, can really pay off since there is always a demand for housing. However, such a decision requires proper preparation, like planning your finances and creating a property management plan. To learn more about what you need to do, read our guide to real estate investing.

Is it a good time to buy a house in Florida?

Now might not be the best time to buy a house in Florida, as listing prices are much higher than usual. However, mortgage rates are lower than in other states, so if you do find the right house for you, lock in that low rate while you can. To understand all your options, you should work with a top real estate agent in Florida.


Clever's analysis of state market trends is based on local data from Zillow, realtor.com, Redfin, Bankrate, the U.S. Census, and Clever surveys. Our team of over 20 real estate analysts from across the country research local markets and data to compile our "Best" and "Worst" rankings.
