For those looking at condominiums, it’s also a buyer’s market. In May there were 4,090 units sold, a drop of 28% from the previous year when there were 5,671 sales. The median price this year was $202,500, a 4% drop from a year ago with the median price then of $210,800.
Buyers can find great deals across the state, including in some non traditional areas. While many people look only at the well-known areas of Orlando, Miami and Tampa, there are lots of other places as well. The west coast north of Tampa has some great beaches and deals. Some of the nicest beaches in the whole state are located on what is called the Emerald Coast, which is along the northwest panhandle from Pensacola to Panama City Beach.
