Active listings totaled 3,915 in May, surpassing early COVID pandemic numbers that peaked at 4,293 in March 2020, according to TCPalm data beginning in January 2020.

“The market continues to be an opportunistic market for both buyers and sellers. Inventory continues to increase but is historically low, and we are seeing more sales as the months get into the summer months,” said David Serle, president of Broward, Palm Beaches & St. Lucie Realtors.

The 30-year and 15-year fixed mortgage rates were over 6.79% and 6.18%, respectively, during the last week of May, according to Freddie Mac’s mortgage survey.
