Davie, FL, August 31, 2010 — Gloomy news that July sales of existing homes dropped 25.5% year-over-year has overshadowed new statistics showing summer sales of million dollar plus homes significantly outperformed other price ranges.

“Luxury home buyers have been buying this summer,” said Patty Da Silva, Broker – Owner REALTOR® of Green Realty and member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing . “After waiting in the wings, many affluent buyers spent the summer shopping for value and snapping up trophy properties.”

Statistics would indicate that he’s right. According to The National Association of Realtors (NAR), for 2009 million-dollar and above home sales were just 1.2% of total sales or about 61,500 sales nationally. In July 2010, million dollar plus market share was up to 1.9%. While sales of homes in the $500,000 and above range rose dramatically in June, the million-dollar-plus market segment was the only price range in July showing positive growth compared to last year. “The mix of what is selling has shifted in favor of homes priced at $750,000 and above,” said Christopher Green, CDPE, REALTOR® and Manager of Green Realty.

Long gone are the days when you happily palmed just under two dollars per pound. Now the US dollar is worth just 61p (29th Oct), a situation that is making the US a less popular holiday option that it has been for years.

A recession isn’t anywhere near enough to stop the kids nagging about Disneyland. So if you’re hell bent on a Florida holiday, how do you get the biggest bang for your buck?

At the 2008 World Travel Market, the feeling was that long haul travel was holding up well despite the economic downturn, mostly because Brits seem to be saving up for one big holiday rather than taking a handful of shorter ones spread over the year. Which is good news because a healthy demand keeps prices low.

Price comparison website BeatTheBrochure.com, has more advice. “Shop around online. It’s the most efficient way to find cheap Florida holiday deals.”
