Single Family Homes:

189 single family homes sold in 2017, similar to 2016. The number of transactions was evenly split among the 3 sections of town (East, Central, West).

Prices overall were up 10.8% in 2017 and are up 28.8% since 2014. They were up 7.7% in the East side of town, up 16% on the west side and up by 14% in central Wilton Manors. The median price for single family homes is now 10% above the peak of 2008 and has doubled since the trough of 2011.

Over the past 3 years, waterfront homes had significantly outperformed the non waterfront segment but this year saw a catch up of “dry lots”

28% homes sold were waterfront in 2017 which is the highest since 2007.

The Eastern part of town is clearly the most expensive and for the past 2 years, the West part of town is more expensive than the Central part. See below the 2017 numbers broken down per part of town per price category.

Wilton Manors overall prices increased by 10.8% for single family homes in 2017. The market segment below $300,000 is evaporating fast while we had one home selling above $1.5 million for the first time in Wilton Manors.

In 2017, single family homes sold:

Below $300,000 were 9% of the total down from 13%
Between $300k and $400k were 26% of the total down from 36% 
Between $400k and $500k were 29% of the total up from 26%
Above $500,000 were 36% of the total up from 23%

88% homes sold in 2017 were built between 1950 and 1969

62% of homes sold in 2017 had a carport or no garage at all. Only 20% had a 2 car garage.

79% of homes sold had 3 or more bedrooms


133 condos were sold in 2017, the highest number in over 10 years and an increase of 17% over 2016.

The median price for condos has dropped slightly to $130,000 and remains 18% below the peak of 2007 unlike homes which have now more than fully recovered.

The market segment below $200k still represents 78% of the market but it is down 6% from last year. Nevertheless this indicates that the Wilton Manors condo market is BY FAR the most affordable market segment.

Condos priced above $250,000  were all located either in Wilton Station or Island City Lofts. Manor Grove had a few sales above $200,000 in 2017.

Town homes:

The town home market segment is the smallest and with only 50 sales in 2017, it was the least active since 2010 but prices reached new heights at $317,500. It is a smart alternative to single family homes whose prices are substantially higher.

At $317,500 it is still 26% below the peak which is normal considering that most town homes were sold for the first time in 2004 and 2005 when the market was at its peak.


The Wilton Manors real estate market reached a peak in 2007 and a trough in 2011. It has now rebounded but median prices are still off the peaks reached in 2007, except for waterfront single family homes which are now 12% above the peak. The waterfront homes hit a trough earlier, in 2009, probably indicating that a higher desirability -due to scarcity- meant a faster recovery. The non waterfront homes were basically stable between 2009 and 2011.

  • Homes have recovered their grounds since the 2007 peak but waterfront homes are 12% ABOVE their 2007 peak while non waterfront homes are still 5% below the peak.
  • Townhomes are still 27% off their 2007 peak which can be explained by the fact that most town homes were new in 2004 and 2005 right at the peak
  • Condos are still 16% off their 2007 peak 

Wilton Manors was a true roller coaster 

  • In 2007 only 14% of homes sold below $300,000. By 2011, it was 74% and in 2016 it is back down to 13%
  • In 2007 only 3% of condos sold below $100,000. By 2011, it was 65% and in 2016 we are down to 18%!! 

With continued redevelopment projects, renovations and infill projects, Wilton Manors is looking at a bright future and is a SOLID investment.
