Joe Petrowsky Lee County, especially Cape Coral, was at the top of the list of hardest hit when the market went down. It is therefore, one of the first to see a comeback.

Hope you see some improvement in your market.

We saw a great increase this spring over winter which is common, things have slowed now with less homes for sale resulting in less sales. Have a good night John Wiley
