The NY Times details the current state the Florida real estate market
. The highlight of the piece for me was comparing the Florida real estate market with Mickey Rouke's character in the movie The Wrestler.
Change was often discussed during the 2008 election and after the financial meltdown, but Florida these days often resembles the character played by its native son Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler: a broken-down piece of meat, damaged and sincere, but a little too messed up to drop familiar habits.
The good news for our market here in Southwest Florida is that there are an awful lot of bargain hunters panning for gold in the foreclosure space. As summer fades to fall, we should only have more buyers visiting the area and participating in this sell-off.
