  1. Mark, we’ve had such a steady flow of people moving to Florida from the Northeast and Illinois that our RE market is rocking. These aren’t retirees but people taking shelter from taxes. Now that huge tax hikes are almost certain I’ll bet that the Florida real estate market – particularly the high end market – is going to explode. Income taxes for the top tax bracket in uber expensive NYC are going to be about 60%. In CT, over 52%.

  2. It is nice to hear that Real Estate is ticking up again (in numerous areas). The Arizona Real Estate Market has had an upswing as well over the summer. Let’s hope this positive trend in the Real Estate Market continues!
