BY DOUGLAS HANKSA housing market on the mend, needing more houses-In South Florida, the buyers are back, for the right price. With values still depressed, sellers aren’t eager to enter the market.A lack of affordable condos — and not the European financial crisis — continues to hold back sales for Brigitte Respaut Degrave, who pairs French buyers with real estate investments in the Miami area. “Two weeks ago, I met a buyer in France,’’ she said. “He wanted to spend $150,000. It ended up being $350,000 for what he wanted.”For Degrave, Europe’s financial woes have been a boon. “The Europeans are afraid of the euro,’’ she said. “They want to diversify.”
