Florida’s housing market is back, according to Summer Greene, incoming president of Florida Realtors. “We have turned the corner,” she said. Greene, who is the regional manger of Better Homes and Gardens Florida 1st in Fort Lauderdale, said a new amendment on the ballot that would give certain first-time buyers an extra discount on their property taxes would also boost the residential sector. “That will help fuel the housing market,” she said. “Housing is key to any economic recovery.” [Sun Sentinel]
