Housing Market Poll: When Will Florida Recover?

The South Florida Law Blog believes it will be at least 2016 before Florida’s housing market fully recovers, but a new study shows many Americans are far more optimistic.

The results are in, and it appears the majority of those surveyed believe 2012 will be the magic year for the housing market. Trulia and RealtyTrac recently polled 2,034 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older to find out when most Americans think the housing market will recover. A mere 10 percent thought a recovery would happen this year, while nearly a quarter of those surveyed predicted a bumpy road until 2015 and beyond.

Despite recent reports that foreclosures have slowed and sales in Broward and Miami-Dade are trending up, Florida is not out of the woods yet. As special guest and Florida real estate developer, Pat Sessions, pointed out during our talk show From The Trenches, the market has yet to bottom out here in Florida.

As always, the South Florida Law Blog continues to share and comment on the latest in real estate news.
