The Florida real estate market is coming in for a landing just like I told you a while back......not a crash and burn... Here are the facts: Sales of pre-existing homes in July 2007 were at 11,674 right in line with pre boom years, if just a little low.In June 2007, the median national sales price for a home was $230,300, which is UP .1 percent from the previous year. How's THEM apples??"Existing-home sales should be relatively stable over the next few months, holding in a modest range, with some pent-up demand growing from buyers who've been on the sidelines," says NAR (9 comments)
