Sales in Northern states are off according to the National Association of Realtors.  I found an excellent Blog in Connecticut with sales data that bears this out.  Linda Davis is the CT Realtor who runs this Blog and it has some interesting features.

SW Florida real estate has picked up the past two weeks, and perhaps Florida will lead the nation out of the real estate slowdown.  I’ll be writing an article soon about SW FLorida real estate sales and prices soon, so stay tuned.
