  1. The median price of a home sold in July was $317,250. That’s down slightly from June’s $320,000, but it’s still the second-highest number since the housing crash.
  2. The Palm Beach County median home price is up 11 percent from July 2015. (Palm Beach County’s property appraiser expects values to go up 7 percent to 9 percent this year.)
  3. Sales slowed. There were 1,530 closed deals in July, down 15 percent from a July 2015.
