In Florida, housing continues to be a gold mine for sellers and investors. Sales of existing homes in the Southwest Florida area continued to go up last month, with area residential real estate prices rebounding from the flat September prices. This signals yet another solid winter for the area's real estate market.
Statistics show that real estate agents sold more than 2,100 houses and condos in Charlotte, Manatee and Sarasota counties back in October. This was a boost of more than 6 percent from the month of September. It was also an increase of more than 16 percent from the exact same period in 2013.
