Here in Orlando, we are finally getting much needed rain. Our friends in the Midwest are getting flooded, the folks on the West coast are facing more wild fires, and the Northeast has been enduring a heat wave. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone around the country and even around the world that are facing some of mother nature's fury. We are truly fortunate to call Central Florida home. I know we faced our own terrible weather four years ago, but in all my 43 years I have never experienced anything like that. We are expected to see a more active Atlantic basin over the next several years, but have not felt the impacts of that since 2004. The afternoon showers we have had the last week remind me of the weather patterns we had when I was a kid.
We have had some pretty encouraging news as far as our real estate market is concerned. There was even some pretty good news today about the overall Florida economy. The rains will bring some much needed relief, and hopefully we will continue to see some relief in our housing market and additional growth in our local and state economies.
