We are in the slowest period for real estate sales and all the real estate agents I know (who are still working) are getting busy. Serious investors are in the market now, trying to take advantage of people who over leveraged themselves. Prices will level off 1st quarter of 2007 and will begin to increase during 2nd and 3rd quarter of 07. By 4th quarter 2007 the insurance and tax issues will have been resolved, so if we can have another mild hurricane season, completion of SW beach renurishment, and further airport development, then I anticipate a very strong 2008 year. Still the people who can not run with the big dogs will stay on the porch and growl at everyone else for having the courage to take a little risk.
FFF...I know a lot of "big dogs" under the front porch whining right now!
Thanks for the projection. You might be right about 2008!
