    Census Numbers

    Considering the number of vacant houses and condo’s. I would guess quite a few people have packed up and oved out. I use to see several hundred Mexicans a dy around town, now it’s strange to see any. On my street alone, saltwater canal, there are 14 lots, 2 vacant, out of the 12 lots with homes on them 4 are vacant, 2 are listed and 2 have been taken off the market because of low price offers, of under $300 k less than asking price which was set by thier Realtors.

    Palm Coast is easy to get into but impossible to get out of!!!!
