South Florida's real estate crisis in one chart

Topic: Real Estate news

South Florida's housing crash may be old news, but recent data offer some valuable perspective.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency maintains appreciation indices for metropolitan areas, which are similar to the famous Case-Shiller index but more local. By stacking up Broward and Miami-Dade's indices to the nation's, the warning signs are hard to miss.

The chart anchors all three indices to the first quarter of 2000, so the numbers show appreciation since then. Real estate got out of hand across the country, with appreciation peaking nationally at 166 percent in 2007. But in Broward, values soared 272 percent. Miami-Dade did even better, up 283 percent.

It's easy to see how quickly values collapsed, but the chart also points out something that tends to be overlooked amid the wreckage of real estate. Home values are still ahead of where they were in 2003.

But perhaps more surprising, local property has actually held its value better than the average home in the United States. According to the FHFA, the average U.S. home is worth about 40 percent more than it was at the start of 2000. In Broward, the average home is worth 49 percent more. In Miami-Dade, it's 56 percent more valuable.

A sign of resiliency, or a hint that South Florida still has some dropping to do? We'll probably find out this year.

I and my pals were found to be reading the good srtcees and techniques located on your web page while quickly developed a terrible feeling I never thanked the web site owner for those tips. The people appeared to be totally happy to learn them and already have pretty much been enjoying them. Many thanks for turning out to be indeed accommodating and also for finding such good areas most people are really desperate to learn about. My sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you earlier.
