Real Estate is the Number One Product in Florida

Luxury real estate in Broward County, Florida may not be where it once was, but it is still stimulating the local economy more than any other product.

According to a report on the state gross domestic product that was recently released by the Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research, real estate is Florida’s biggest private industry.  Florida’s total GDP (Gross Domestic Product) rose by 0.77 percent per year from 2006 through 2011 to $754.3 billion in current dollars. 

The private sector grew by only 0.1 percent a year over the five-year period.  However, while the private sector slowed down, real estate accounted for 15.6 percent of Florida’s total economy in 2011.

To compare and contrast, the table below contains a list of Florida’s Top 6 Gross Domestic Products and their performances:
