As the cold weather continues in most of the nation, temperatures in Florida are sizzling—and so is the real estate market.
It’s difficult to keep up with the dizzying pace of high-dollar deals in the Sunshine State.
To recap February thus far: Only a month after landing on the market for $140 million, a brand-new Palm Beach mansion wound up selling for $122.7 million. The golf legend Greg Norman’s cool compound on Jupiter Island recently listed for $60 million and has already landed an offer. David Tepper, the owner of the Carolina Panthers, just spent $73 million on a brand-new mansion—also in Palm Beach.
Big money has migrated south, and Florida’s luxury market is off to a blistering start in 2021.

Plenty of mansions with enormous price tags are still out there. Slather on the SPF 50 and have a look at the 10 priciest places currently available in Florida.
