Worries in the real estate market still continued to hamper the Florida market this past October.  

According to the Florida Association of Realtors, sales of existing single-family homes totaled 9165, a sharp drop off of 29 percent from one year before, October 2006, when 12,846 of these homes were sold.   

National figures show a decrease in these figures as well, albeit a much smaller decline.  In September 2007 these homes median selling price fell 4.9 percent when compared to one year ago.   

With fewer houses being sold, prices have dropped in an effort to lure buyers.  In October, Florida’s median selling price for existing single-family homes was $222,100.  One year ago this figure was at a robust $247,700, or an eight percent decrease
