Odd how little you post in your new location and how much you post in your old location. Also odd how you only seem to post negative threads. Hmmmmm......I wonder why that is.

Still seems a bit out of whack.
Those gains really didnt happen. It is artificial.

That's a fact. Nothing keeps people from living their dreams. It's the strong minded people who make the difference.

Well yeah - those houses sold, so obviously the current market supports it, but still makes me uneasy.

Not to nit pick, but your claim that there is an increase of 900,000 new residents is off by over 500,000.

When the "boom" was on nobody blinked when people were paying three, four times the value for a house.

Most ppl already settled here weren't doing it. It was mostly the newbies. Many moved down here only with the desire to buy and flip and get rich quick.

Yeah, I know what you mean. There is a house in winter park. sold for 234k in 2005.
Today its for sale at $150k. The buyer was thinking "flip" but got screwed.
People who were settled here already owned homes.

I see you're making a lot of friends.

I post in a lot of the different threads on CD, but the Florida forums are where I like to post the most.

Yes, we all have noticed that. That is why I found it odd. I would think that having moved to a new area, you would be more interested in starting threads in your new locale, rather than starting endless negative threads about the place you did not like and left. But then again.........
