Orlando leads the nation in empty houses

Orlando has the highest homeowner vacancy rate in the United States, with 7.4% of its housing stock unoccupied in 2007, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Other Florida cities aren't far behind: Tampa-St. Petersburg (5.1%), Jacksonville (4.6%), and Miami-Ft. Lauderdale (4.4%). Nationwide, the rate is 2.8%.

Read more in The Wall Street Journal here and check out the kinda cool interactive map.

I have to say it: meanwhile, about 10,000 people are homeless in the Orlando metro area.
