Broward’s real estate market continues its upward climb, with property values rising for the fifth straight year.

Every one of Broward’s 31 cities, from West Park to Weston, Pembroke Park to Pembroke Pines, as well as the unincorporated areas, saw positive growth in real estate values, according to preliminary estimates from the Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office. On average, the rise was 7.1 percent over the year before.

The values are estimates based on real estate activity in 2015. Final figures will be released by July 1.

The increases ranged from about 3 percent in Parkland to more than 10 percent in North Lauderdale, the only double-digit performance.

Some cities also benefited from construction booms, with new homes, condos and businesses adding millions of dollars to the tax rolls. With the new development figured in, values went up even higher — 8.5 percent countywide. With the new development factored in, three cities — Parkland, North Lauderdale and Hallandale Beach — exceeded 10 percent gains in overall value.
