What You’ll Gain From Reading This Article: This article provides real estate data for the 55+ homebuying market in Florida for February 2024.


Florida continues to be the largest market in the 55+ real estate industry. More than 50% of all MLS listings in the U.S. in February 2024 were in the Sunshine State. Southeast Florida, which includes Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, had by far the most listings, at nearly 3,800. Following SE Florida, the other areas with significant homes available include the Central Florida region, Fort MyersNaples, and Tampa Bay.

List prices in Florida are lower than in many other parts of the country with abundant supply. Other than Fort Myers-Naples, the other three popular areas have average list prices in the $330k – $350k range. Sales have been steady. However, the plentiful supply has led to nearly five months of inventory in Tampa. Other regions generally have 6 – 8 months of inventory. On the sales side, sales prices are running at about 3% below the list. 

The Villages, Sun City Center, On Top of the World, and The Villages of Citrus Hills had the most sales in February. Of the 20 communities with 20 or more sales, prices increased compared to January 2024 in 18 of the 20. Also, the total units sold grew in all but one.
