Who's Buying Real Estate in Florida?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

The Florida Association of Realtors published 2008 findings about buyers in Florida recently.

Interestingly, 43% of all buyers were first time home buyers.  Of more interest is that 46% of homebuyers reported using social network sites.

With almost half of buyers being first time homebuyers, I'm planning on giving more First Time Homebuyer Classes this year.  I'll take all the buyers interested in working with me.

How about you?  What are you planning to do this year to stay in business?

I think first time homebuyers are big segments of every market. People that had been priced out of the market can finally jump in!
