Will The Florida Market Crash in 2023

Is Florida in for a crash like in 2008? 

Sarasota, FL - The real estate market crashed 2007/2008, so it will probably happen again, right? Let's dive deep into the differences in today's Sarasota real estate market.

The most significant comment I hear from people looking to buy is that they are waiting for prices to come down or the market to crash. The price increases we saw over the past few years were spectacular and, of course, not sustainable. Interest rates began to increase in early 2022, putting the brakes on an overheated market. The first thing many start thinking is that the market will crash, as it did in 2008. The foundation or runup to the crash of 2008 vs. today is quite different, and a crash is doubtful.
