Florida's Existing Home Sales Surged In March

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Cornerstone Properties & Investments, LLC

Florida's existing home sales surged in March, recording the single biggest month since late 2005. Sales of condos and homes jumped 36 percent from February to March, surpassing the national rise of 3.7 percent, according to figures from the Florida Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.  Seventeen Florida regions reported higher sales last month, and it's the fourth consecutive month that statewide sales have exceeded the same month in the prior year.  The study also noted that a full 35% of buyers were CASH BUYERS.

Glad to hear Florida sales are up.  Thanks for sharing.  We are seeing more interest/inquiries in IL. Let's hope it continues.  Good Luck!

Steve,

Big encouragement to see deals on the uptick in Florida! Here in NV still a bit tough but we're HANGIN' in there.  Florida is such a beautiful place and I can't wait for the market to fully recover.
