As we head into the winter season combined with the weak US dollar, I suspect we will see an influx of foreign investors and 2nd home buyers looking to take advantage of attractively priced condominiums on the sand or near the beach that on average are approximately 40-50% less than they were during the boom years. The graph below illustrates Average Price For Sale and Average Price of Closed Sales from September 2002 to present day. As you can see, we are basically back to 2003 prices. I think we may very well be seeing a leveling off.
