Happy Holidays to all! I know everyone is busy shopping, eating, partying, and getting ready for the holidays. The last thing on anyone’s mind is…. real estate. However, I thought I would spread somegood cheer regarding the market! In today’s Miami Herald (front page) it talks about condo sales being up. Our illustrious leader Mr. Ron Shuffield was quoted in that article and said he was extremely optimistic about the market in general. He feels the foreclosure freeze will mostly wear off in 2011 and the market will return to some normalcy. It’s a cycle and cycles don’t last forever. Prices are up from last year in both Dade and Broward. When you think back a few years when the market was on a high, many sellers today say “I could of sold for….”. Well, if you buyers don’t make a move, you will be saying, “I could of bought for….”. Don’t be that buyer….call me, I’m around! Happy Holidays, Happy New Year!!
By the way, on the same front page, the Jungle Island attraction is looking like the market…trying to survive. I remember when it was the Parrot Jungle. Good times. Every relative that came into town made the circuit, Parrot Jungle, Monkey Jungle, The Seaquarium, and the Beach!
