Expert insights: “We’re experiencing a major shift in the market [due to] so many people relocating from Northern states to the South, [in part because of] the benefits that Florida offers—like no state tax,” Meza says. “[Most] buyers are looking for at least three bedrooms or more, so properties with larger square footage—which normally would take longer to sell due to price point and size—have been in demand for the past [half year].”
