Negativity? Yes. Uninteresting reading? No.

Kar moved from Fort Myers, FL, to Tennessee, and wants to move back. That is amazing. Cashed out and looking to cash in.

National reports won't tell you much about southwest Florida. It's a unique place. Speculators had a greater impact here than virtually anywhere else in the country.

There is also a shortage of affordable housing. There are plenty of $300-500k houses on the market, but someone living on a median household income cannot afford even a $250k house. Apartments are virtually non-existant, since so many were converted to condos (which were then sold for around $250k+).

The market has a LONG way to go before it fixes itself. There are simply too many expensive houses and too few inexpensive houses.
