sale: Tampa Florida Real Estate Market: Stability Projected for 2012 - 03/08/12 12:05 AM

sale: Pending Home Sales And Prices Are Up! - 03/01/12 03:07 AM
The National Association of Realtors reports that existing home sales have hit a 21 month high in January 2012. A total of 8% more contracts were signed by agents during that 21 month period.
