DayTrading Florida Real Estate

This is pretty bizarre, via the Naples Daily News:

•  A Pittsburgh speculator bought the house at 475 Galleon Drive in Naples’ swank
Port Royal neighborhood and sold it six weeks later for a $700,000 mark-up.

• A Bonita Springs widow, who runs a corporation called Sunny Florida
Investments Inc. from her condo, bought a lot at 4370 34th Ave. S.E. in eastern
Golden Gate Estates for $9,900. She sold it the same day for $37,400.

• A Naples couple bought a home in the middle-class Saturnia Lakes
neighborhood preconstruction at 1929 Isla de Palma Circle and sold it the same
day they closed on it for $207,000 more than they paid.

Note that these are hardly examples of day trading, but instead are signs of increased speclative activity.

The entire article is worth a read . . .
