South Florida remains the toughest market in the nation for selling a house, even as big price declines here are attracting buyers.
The typical house in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami
-Dade counties lingers for 193 days, according to a February report released this week by California real estate firms Real IQ and Altos Research.
That's up from 156 days last summer and well ahead of second-place Chicago, where the average house stays on the market for 180 days.
South Florida has had the nation's slowest sales rate every month since the survey began in 2007.
