America's Emptiest Cities
A few years back developers in Orlando, Fla., thought they had it all figured out. With apartments rapidly being converted to condominiums, they started building new apartment complexes to absorb all the renters who didn't want to buy.
Then the economy went into recession, vacationers stopped going to Disney World, and financing evaporated for developers and buyers alike.
Orlando is just one piece of proof that if you build it, they may not come.
