From WESH Orlando:

Flagler County is the fastest-growing county in the United States. One of every five homes in Flagler County is for sale. Celebration is feeling the same pain because 50 percent of the homes there are for sale.  Moss Park, east of Orlando International, where nearly 9 percent of the homes are in foreclosure, 8 percent in the ZIP code west of Palm Bay and 7 percent in Poinciana.

H/T: Atrios.
