Interesting perspective. I always enjoy looking back at how the experts said the year would turn out, especially the stock market, and compare that to how the market actually did. Looking back shows me that when it comes to investing, my guess is as good as anyone else's. I blog about it at http://mymountain.blogspot.com/2005/12/prospering-in-new-year-who-can-we.html

take a look at the rental rates and % of investor buyers in naples, you can't buy at $750K house and rent it for more than $1500 a month, so how does one justify the value of a house. people are buying $750K houses and selling them for $800K six months later. Or should i say WERE,,,talk to any investor w/ a $2500 mortgage and see how fast they will sell. Their just aren't that many millionaires around willing to pay $750K for a 3br/2bth house when you can buy a mansion for the same price in Tampa or plenty of other nice places...just an opinion.

In your blog you say: "In fact, one major driver of Florida home values are people relocating from New York where home values are at least twice that of Florida's prices."

I know that this is true and I also know that it's true that New Yorkers are moving to Orlando specifically, but I cannot find statistical information anywhere to substantiate the claim that New Yorkers specifically are moving to Orlando specifically. Do you have the data or know where I can get it?

I would really appreciate any assistance you can offer me.
