New Studies Suggest Florida Turnaround Recent national studies by Realtor.com, owned by the National Association of Realtors, and Trulia show Florida markets may be poised for an upswing. Realtor.com's Top Ten Turnaround Report Realtor.com's study ranks a city's rising market potential based on a formula comparing recent price appreciation, inventory changes, average age of inventory, area unemployment, and the number of searches by visitors to the site. According to Realtor.com, six of the top ten cities expecting an upswing are in Florida. Markets in Miami, Orlando, Fort MyersCape Coral, Ft. Lauderdale, SarasotaBradenton, and Lakeland Winter Haven are all expected to improve. Factors include a healthy inventory, lower foreclosure rates, and increased condo sales in Miami. Orlando had more home searches compared to listings than any other city. In Fort MeyersCape Coral, foreclosure are down, foreign buyers are interested in the area, and median prices have increased yearly.
