Here is a good summary of the "TYPES" of financing of homes sold in August of 2008 and August 2007. You will see that more buyers this year are using the FHA program to finance their home purchase than buyers in 2007. Gainesville is holding strong when compared to other depressed areas in Florida. I am a firm believer that it is a "Great time to be a Buyer" in Gainesville.

My Last Market Report was for June 2008. I didn't realize that I had not posted a report for July, but I have been busy with very happy buyers!
It's truly a buyers' market !!
