Overall pending sales, which are a key indicator of buyer activity, increased 85 percent year-to-date in January 2009. "I've seen that the number of showings in January 2009 have exceeded the number of showings for every month since 2004. The activity is encouraging," stated Brenda Fioretti, Managing Broker of Prudential Florida Realty.

The report provides annual comparisons of single-family home and condo sales (via the SunshineMLS), price ranges, geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The statistics are presented in chart format, along with the following analysis:
