This weeks issue of The New Yorker has a frightening story about Florida real estate. Worth a read if you're going to be buying down there. There's a video on the New Yorker website I haven't seen yet but might be worth a look: The New Yorker

I heard Packer's interview on On Point last week. The video on your link though really showed the problems more clearly.

Yeah, it's pretty grim. I'm sure this isn't the case in ALL of Florida, but the angle I hadn't considered was the extent to which Florida's economy is based on growth, and the impact on schools, public services and the cloth of community has to be significant.

I live in South west Florida and I thought the video was un realistic . There are a lot of foreclosures but Florida has not become a ghost city . A lot of the realtors and developers went crazy building and buying on speculation during the boom years and now they are stuck as they obviously did not prepare for lean years . If this is ground zero you certaintly can not see it . It's impossible to get in a Restaurant on the weekend and the beach traffic is as heavy as ever .
