Florida property projects frozen over oil spill

Posted on June 18th, 2010 No Comments

The Florida home construction industry has taken a serious blow from damages due to the Gulf Coast oil spill.

With paused or canceled projects running between $450,000 to $750,000 per property, home builders have found major set-backs in economic recovery appearing from oil spill worries. Growth between this year and the last showed 11% growth in March and 4.7% growth in April, making some believe that Florida property owners were seeing a slow by steady road to recovery. After the oil spill, any confidence assumed by area property holders has been scrambled.

University of Central Florida’s Institute for Economic Competitiveness has estimated a $10.9 billion list of damages due to the oil spill. Since Tuesday, BP has accounted for and paid $183,602 to Florida claims. Real estate sales loss claims have totaled $11,722, according to BP.
