From all I read “out there,” it looks like Florida’s housing market is projected to do well this year. In contrast, CoreLogic economists forecast U.S. growth in home prices to drop by one percentage point as higher interest rates impact the mortgage market. This isn’t very good news.
However, this apparent “bad news” doesn’t apply to the state of Florida. Unlike many housing markets throughout the United States, Florida’s housing market is expected to do very well in 2019.

Spring Forecast Residential Real Estate
So, it looks like 2019 is off to a great start! Homes are selling. The residential housing industry is moving along at a good pace, at least here in Florida!
According to Florida Realtors, “With current data showing that Florida is outpacing the nation in terms of home sales and employment growth, he (Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. Brad O’Connor) forecasts that 2019 should see about a 1 percent growth in home sales and maybe 3 to 4 percent price growth. That’s in contrast to the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) forecast for home and condo sales to remain relatively flat in 2019.”
Spring is here and the real estate market is strong! Therefore, it’s the perfect time to decide if a new home is in you and your family’s future this year.
