Crist Listens to Citizens

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says residents of the Sunshine State should urge their friends in the chilly north to buy Florida real estate.

The governor told Floridians attending a town hall meeting in Kissimmee on Monday that now is the best time in years to buy Florida real estate, provided you can get a loan. Real estate taxes are going down, as is insurance. The governor, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, told the residents at the town hall meeting to spread the news to friends in freezing weather up north.

The governor answered questions about property taxes, growth and
a commuter rail from the 250 residents at the town hall meeting.
