Florida To Be A Hot Seller In 2010

January 11, 2010Article by Ray Withers

Florida property prices are at an 8 year low according to the Orlando Realtors Association. It is little wonder then, that with things now starting to recover in the UK economy and labour market, that Florida property is expected to be one of the top sellers in 2010 with British based overseas property agents.
