The simple answer. Much to high. With our economy heavily relying on the tourist trade it will increase within the few months as we go off season.
The outlook for optimism is still there. As a state we have the good fortune to take the lead in a number of fronts.
Energy plants. Solar, thermal , nuclear.
Developers have an opportunity to invest in building and rebuilding obsolete homes that can meet and stand up to hurricane force winds. Introducing available products like solar tiles, thermal windows, generators, state of the art water purification systems. The demand is there. There is no better opportunity than now. Florida being one of the highest states hit with foreclosures is ripe and affordable for investors that see the potential.
Mark , this is the time for brave action. Florida is the future that can heal itself and provide plenty of job securities on all fronts if it is recognized for more than its tourist values.
