MARKET SNAPSHOT: “There is no doubt that Hurricane Irma impacted real estate activity throughout the month of September. In addition to most businesses losing up to five working days, no closings could take place until FEMA lifted our disaster area status. I anticipate a substantial increase in closed sales in the coming months as everyone recovers from lost time and resources due to the storm,” said Jeffrey Levine, First Vice President, Realtors® of the Palm Beaches and Greater Fort Lauderdale.
