PORT ST. LUCIE, FL, US, July 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida real estate market will continue growing throughout the rest of 2021 and beyond. Property values on the Treasure Coast – St. Lucie County, Indian River County, and Martin County have increased. This surge is caused by a boom in the South Florida economy including an influx of new companies and out of state residents moving to the area.
After the COVID-19 pandemic, the real estate market felt its impact all over the country. The Treasure Coast has become one of the fastest growing real estate markets in the US in the past year. The Treasure Coast region of Florida is a section on the Atlantic-facing side that spans from Vero Beach to Palm Beach. Metros in the Treasure Coast include: Port St. Lucie, Fort Pierce, Vero Beach, Jensen Beach, and West Palm Beach. The Florida area has seen a recent wave of transplants from high-tax areas such as New York, especially after the pandemic. As a result, this has driven a demand for real estate in Florida, specifically in the Treasure Coast area.

“I put my home on the market in Port St. Lucie and I immediately received eight different offers in the following days. The real estate market is explosive right now and it is a great time for home sellers to get the best price for their property.” – Greg, client of Dore Step Real Estate Services
Florida is not the only state where home prices are spiking. This trend has been occurring all over the country, especially with homes selling above the listing price and an influx of cash buyers. Dore Step Real Estate Services, a real estate agency in Port St. Lucie has seen an explosion of interest in home purchases in the past year. Founder Maureen Dore comments on the recent uptick in interested buyers in Port St. Lucie:
“Many buyers are particularly interested in St. Lucie county and are ready to purchase any home available at a moment’s notice. I’ve had listings go up that have been gone by the end of the week. The second a property becomes available on the market you have to jump on it immediately or it will not be there when you check later.” – Maureen Dore, Founder of Dore Step Real Estate Services
