FORT LAUDERDALE, FL

Market Action Index


The FORT LAUDERDALE market is currently quite strongly in the Buyer's Advantage zone (below 30). The 90-day Market Action Index stands at 21.19. With several months of inventory available at the current sales rate, buyers should find ample choice.

90-day Average

Buyers/Sellers Cutoff

Market Action Index per Quartile


Not surprisingly given the overall Market Action Index, all quartiles are in the Buyer's Market zone with several months of inventory given the current rate of demand for homes in the quartile. Watch the quartile for changes before the overall market shifts. Often one end of the market (e.g. the low end) will improve and signal a strengthening market before the whole group changes.

First/Top

Second/Upper

Third/Lower

Fourth/Bottom

Buyers/Sellers Cutoff
Residential house prices are a function of supply and demand, and market conditions can be characterized by analyzing those factors. Watch this index for sustained changes: if the index falls into the Buyers Advantage zone (below 30) for a long period, prices are likely in for a downward correction. The Market Action Index (MAI) illustrates a balance between supply and demand using a statistical function of the current rate of sale versus current inventory.
