Here in Southwest Florida 🌴 especially as people continue to move / relocate to the area from other parts of the US, inventory remains low overall, but we do continue to list new properties to the market and sell many homes; both Single family, and Condo type. We have also seen an uptake in people planning ahead, and buying that second home now, rather than waitiang as they were planning to do. Low interest rates are probably helping with this additionally. Low inventory is the greatest chalenge for buyers. For those relocating to Florida, we are pleased to be able to assist homeowners in other parts of the United States who need to sell to buy here; please reach out today for more information and how you can have a smooth, non-stressful transition / relocation.
