Business Week cites Florida as the toughest market for buyers and sellers. The downward decline in home prices is a national trend but the building frenzy in Florida makes the Sunshine State more vulnerable to over supply and price plunges than other states—although markets like San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Boston, and San Francisco are mentioned as trouble spots.

But, oh well. For some additional information about Tancredo’s views check out what Colorado Media Matters had to say.
