Great news! In 2016, Florida’s economy outperformed the national economy. Economists attribute the success to better job creation throughout the state. Thanks to the hardworking Florida Realtors, signs of Florida’s healthy economy include the 5.5 million home sales of 2016. The best in a decade. Yet, there is still room for growth. And, although interest rates are climbing, so are home sales. Thus, 2017 is looking promising for Florida’s real estate market.
