Hurrican Irma Affects September Home Sales

Good Day All, 

I hope everyone is off to a great start to a productive week! No matter what type of business you’re in, I’m sure Hurricane Irma has affected your September financial projections. Check out this article that Florida Realtors posted regarding home sales for September. If you currently have your property listed for sale this may explain why you have had less activity these past few weeks. http://www.floridarealtors.org/NewsAndEvents/article.cfm?p=2&id=358077

If anyone has any questions or if there is anything I can do to help you with your real estate needs, please give me a call today!

Take Care,
