Buying a home has been a pricey proposition in Florida since the turn of the century. Four of the state’s cities are ranked among the top 20 when it comes to home prices increases in the  largest U.S. metropolitan areas since 2000.

Clever Real Estate, a data and real estate analysis company, completed a study of the nation’s 50 biggest cities and home price increases in those large metro areas. Miami came in with the greatest increase in home prices in the U.S. so far this century, with a 299% jump in home values.

In 2000, the typical home value in Miami was $118,450. That figure skyrocketed to $472,711 in 2023, the biggest percentage increase in the country, according to the Clever Real Estate report.

Population figures were drawn from the U.S. Census Bureau.

      Sure sounds great…until none of the working class income service industry people can afford to live there anymore. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to the local economy when they can’t find anybody for these jobs because everybody left.
