As the inventory of available properties decreases the prices are being driven higher by the demand of the investor. Florida SFRs in the lower price end seem to be the desired investment of the day! The big investors and the small investors are buying up these properties as soon as they hit the market. They are paying cash an closing quickly. This is leaving the first time home buyer and the other buyers in the cold. The banks are not releasing the "Shadow Inventory" so there are few properties to choose from.
