Janice, who calls herself a real estate pro, is clueless. People are walking away from homes in foreclosure all over Orlando. It has to do with the inflated prices of homes that they could not afford when the economy went south, home prices tumbled and they lost jobs or had to relocate. Some are just not willing to continue to pay huge mortgages on a home that is now worth half its original price. It has little to nothing to do with the bombing range issue. Some of what Janice stated as fact is a complete falsehood. There were NO live bombs found in peoples' yards. The Orlando Sentinel as well as local TV and radio media, continually reported bombs going off. A complete fabrication - what went off was the ordinance used to destroy old fragments - no live bombs were ever reported found. After spending millions of dollars searching homes and yards in the area, finding nothing, the Army Corps has moved on, issuing certificates to the homeowner so they can prove their home and yard has been searched and is safe. Due to the lack of evidence, the numerous lawsuits, drummed up by the litigation lawyers have been dropped. How do I know? I am a long time resident of Orlando, live in an area, not deemed in the bombing range, but close by with several friends who do live in the area. I have seen the certificates sent to homeowners and on file with the city, citing their property as safe, I have read the certified mail they received from the lawyers, who dropped the case when it became obvious they had no case.
