How to choose an agent

To get the most out of our list of top agents in Florida, you’ll need to start with a few that match your needs. Once you have a list of three to five agents, you’ll need to outline the most important skills and qualifications for your situation.

Set up some interviews and check for experience in:

  • The neighborhood you are buying or selling in
  • The price range that your current or new home is in
  • The circumstances unique to your situation

A realtor’s answer — and their reasoning behind it — to any of these prompts will provide an accurate picture of their capabilities. If they provide a thorough plan or ask insightful questions, that’s an agent you’ll want to consider. If they give you a vague promise or are over-eager to close the deal, keep searching.

Once that’s done, you’ll negotiate a commission and sign an agreement. Most listing agreements are exclusive, which guarantees the agent a commission if the home sells. Make sure you understand the agreement and discuss it with your agent before signing.

A little about Florida

Florida has 21,477,737 residents and the population of the state is growing by 1.1% each year. This puts some natural pressure on home prices.

According to our market conditions team, Florida is currently a cold market, which is good news if you’re a buyer.

What is a home in Florida worth?

As of February 2021, the average home value in Florida is $273,094, which is a 9.3% increase over the last year.

The exact price of your home, however, will depend on its size, condition, and how it stacks up to comparable properties. Here's the tiered breakdown of home values in Florida:

  • Top 30% of homes: $462,719
  • Average home: $273,094
  • Bottom 30% of homes: $170,340

State of the Florida Real Estate Market

In Florida, an average of 70,335 homes are available for sale each month. Of those, 80,229 are sold.

So buyers have plenty of options, but if you’re selling, you'll need to find a way to make your home stand out from all that competition.

In either case, a top agent in Florida can help you put your best foot forward and help you negotiate the best possible deal.

Is it a good time to invest in Florida real estate?

With an average rent of $1,357 and 34% of the population being renters, that leaves plenty of room for investors to make money on Florida rental properties.
