Florida Update

  • The Sunshine State always has been a favorite of transplants for its weather, beaches, and lack of a personal income tax. Now, real estate agents and economic development promoters say that their client lists are burgeoning with out-of-state residents looking to sign contracts.

 

  • Foreclosures are down nationwide since last spring but not in Florida, where foreclosure filings increased by 23 percent this May compared to May 2018, according to ATTOM Data Solutions' May 2019 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report (FMR)

 

 

  • “Florida is America’s Australia,” goes the set-up line for a well-worn Florida joke. But the laughs are increasingly at the expense of anyone short-changing Florida and the steadily growing economic might the Sunshine State is delivering to the nation and the world.

 

  • Almost a decade into the recovery from the Great Recession, construction continues unabated as more and more developers from outside the area seek to capitalize on Tampa Bay's booming population and job growth.

 

  • Billionaire developer Jorge Pérez's name will adorn Florida International University’s Metropolitan Center, which will now be known as the Jorge M. Pérez Metropolitan Center following a $1 million endowment from the Related Philanthropic Foundation.
