Have you been holding your breath, waiting for the Florida real estate market to recover from the housing market crisis? Well, it’s time to take a big breath because, for many metro areas, experts say the housing market is bouncing off its bottom.

In fact, according to the newly released Trulia Price Monitor, which tracks housing prices for major markets across the country, housing prices bottomed out in January 2012 and prices in March 2012 were 1.4 percent higher than the previous quarter.

Looking at the report overall, Florida in particular is making a much stronger comeback than elsewhere in the nation. The report shows that Orlando is sixth on the list of Top 10 Metros with Largest Price Increases with a 6.3 percent year-over-year price increase, while other U.S. cities are still facing substantial year-over-year decreases.
