The problem with Florida 20 years ago when I was with a group trying to form in 
Del Rey Beach is that developers were building like crazy. There were tons of 
apartments available at lower prices than could be built in a community that 
wanted to build sustainable housing. The developers were not always doing 
construction that would withstand a hurricane, or even the edge of a hurricane.

I just did a quick and non-scientific flip though, and there are a 
number of apartments available below these prices. Just saying.
