Lee County Florida, Something's changing in FC/Shrt/Std ratios

Services for Real Estate Pros with South West Florida Real Estate Investment Association

Something's changing in FC/Shrt/Std ratios, some regions seeing some relief, others seeing more pain.  Lee County's showing more pain (+4%) in the broad view.

South Cape Coral stands out clearly as a "pain center" in this view, North Cape shows a significant "relief center".  LA in broad spectrum is beginning to move from painful to somewhat-relieved, with plenty of room for improvement.  UEP areas where the future improved show less FC/Shrt %, though that may well be either temporary or my own wishful thinking.  The longer view will tell the story more clearly..

INVENTORY vs. DEMAND - it'll end up being the driving force as usual..  "Usual" would be better than the calamity of our recent "Usual", but every day brings a whole new "Normal" these days.

We'll look forward to the newest "Normal" being something we can remember was a good time to be alive.  If Mr/s. DEMAND doesn't die, Mr/s. Inventory will require a higher paycheck sooner or later.  Mr/s. Inventory has reduced from 11,400 in Nov '08 to 10,800 today against a flood of 14,000 Mr/s Demands, all of whom have found themselves Owners and are spending their Cost Of Living in Lee County now (or their Tenants are).

It'll happen, it's how "IT" goes.
