Realtor Round Table

December 9th, 2009 by flanews

140,000 first-time homebuyers bought houses in Florida this year.

Realtors say the surge is a direct response to the 8-thousand dollar federal-tax credit. Today Governor Charlie Crist sat down with real estate agents from across the state to discuss ways to improve the housing market. Crist says SunRail will help the market rebound.

Transportation avenues are providing greater options for people whether it’s in trade, economic development, or just moving around the state of Florida for whatever reason it might be. The easier it is for people, the easier it is for them to get a home, to rent an apartment, to work in one city and transport to another and commute, all of those things add up,” said Crist.

Toward the end of the meeting realtors asked Crist to support a constitutional amendment to cap property taxes and to oppose an amendment requiring voters to approve any changes to city and county comprehensive growth plans.
