According to a recent article at HousingWatch.com, Florida house prices are dropping, even in the state’s most expensive city: Key West.
What was once an impossible location for many buyers in the Sunshine State has become surprisingly attainable. A Miami Herald article cites a couple who “paid $157,000 for the foreclosure that an investor bought in 2004 for $370,000 and in 2006 was appraised for $463,000.”
So while it’s true these numbers reflect problems in the market, it’s also true that they offer good news for those looking to make the most of the downturn.
