After skyrocketing over the last 24 months, home prices flattened out and existing-home sales dipped in Florida.

Economic analyst Dr. Hank Fishkind tells WMFE’s Nicole Darden Creston where he thinks our housing market is headed next, but he starts with a look at why home prices climbed so high in the first place.

Nicole came to Central Florida to attend Rollins College and started working for Orlando’s ABC News Radio affiliate shortly after graduation. She joined Central Florida Public Media in 2010. As a field reporter, news anchor and radio show host in the City Beautiful, she has covered everything from local arts to national elections, from extraordinary hurricanes to historic space flights, from the people and procedures of Florida’s justice system to the changing face of the state’s economy.
