DOWNTOWN MIAMI (Jan. 9, 2020) - Nearly 65 distressed condo units - both shortsales and real estate owned (REO) by lenders - are formally listed for sale in the South Florida county of Palm Beach, according to a new report from Condo Vultures® Realty LLC.

Based on distressed condo sales of about 23 units monthly in the first nine months of 2019, Palm Beach County now has nearly a three-month supply of REO and shortsale units available for purchase in the tricounty South Florida region of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach at the start of the Winter Buying Season, according to the report based on data from the Southeast Florida MLS Matrix.

A balanced market is generally considered to have about six months of supply. More months of condo supply listed for sale suggests a buyer’s advantage and less months typically indicates a seller’s advantage in the market.
