“South Florida by the Numbers” is a web feature that lists the most remarkable, original and surprising real estate statistics.

Perfectly in tune with South Florida’s hot real estate market, the region’s three active sports teams are enjoying consistent and lasting success at the time of writing. The Florida Panthers have one of the best records in the NHL, the Miami Heat win big despite injuries and the league’s toughest schedule, and even the erratic Miami Dolphins are four-game winners, with an outside chance in the playoffs. But when it comes to “home” venues, do the region’s top athletes dominate their closing tables with so much skill and talent? We’re exploring that in “South Florida by the Numbers” this month.
