It is not easy to sell a house these days. I am talking about our city, I am not sure how it is in your city. There are some houses with with a sign "for sell" in our neighborhood. Some of those houses, people have been trying to to sell for 2 - 3 years already and they still have not been lucky enough to get a buyer yet.
If you have money however, it could still be a good idea to invest money in property. Check these south beach homes for sale. With property like those beach houses, you can rent those to some tourists if you don't use it. That way you could earn money from the investment you put in those beach houses.
