According to the newly released 2010 report compiled by IHS Global Insight and PNC Financial Services, here are the top ten most undervalued cities for home prices within the state of Florida.
The rankings were derived from comparisons of median home prices, population densities and income, and historical premiums or discounts that the areas have exhibited in the past. In their January 2006 report, Naples was deemed most overvalued, with 84% of homes valued over the fair market price. Today, Naples real estate sells at a 29% discount and the median home price is just $165,500, down from more than $390,000 four and more years ago.
