Why a Second Home in Vero Beach?

28 BeachWhether a quick weekend getaway to enjoy the beach, go sport fishing or golf with friends, Vero Beach is the perfect destination for those seeking a little R&R.

Inventory is Dropping!

The graph below depicts the number of months it would take to sell the existing residential listings on the market, May 2010 through May 2012. Inventory is down 75% from where it was two years ago. We now have approximately 5.6 months of inventory where two years ago in May, we had approximately 22.6 months. What does this mean?
