Michael Timmerman of Fishkind & Associates was invited by London Bay Homes to speak to the REALTOR® community on the state of the Florida housing economy with a focus on Lee and Collier Counties. He expects the Florida economy and employment pictures to improve in 2011 with continued momentum through 2014. He projects that housing starts will grow from about 45,000 statewide in 2011, to more than 100,000 by 2014. Pricing is expected to improve gradually during this period as inventory continues to decline. Timmerman is backing up what we have seen at Gulf Coast International Properties this season!
