FLORIDA SALES SET NEW HIGH

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Professional Asociates 74203

in big caps on the front page of the Sarasota Herald Tribune Tuesday.  Can you believe good news being reported?  Florida sales began 2012 with its best January EVER.  January 2012 sales were the highest ever recorded.  I know I am repeating myself but that sales number is staggering.  This is the biggest monthly increase since August of 2006.  12.5% higher than a year ago.

It is not housing sales alone increasing.  Across the spectrum the Florida economy is on the move.  Boats, aircraft dealers, office equipment, restaurants, apparel and professional services all reported double digit percentage increases in January.

Not all was rosy.  Commercial property leasing was down.  It is wonderful to hear that Florida is recovering.  They have a long ways to go but the trend is their friend.

I was in Florida earlier this week, I read more of the same information. It is certainly time that more good news came out of Florida. Our mortgage activity has increased in Florida, three months in a row. All great news.

Thank you for sharing the post with all of us.

Conrad - that's excellent news and does bear repeating! 12% higher than last year demonstrates the market is looking up in Florida! So much for all the doom and gloom - the truth is in the numbers! Have a great weekend!
