Hi John, we're seeing an increase in inventory in Lake County FL as well. Homes that are priced right and show well go under contract quickly. Great market update for Lee County.

Beth Atalay I think the increased inventory is pretty standard right now in Florida. Days on market are down, so when priced right they go quickly.

Thanks for you comments.
