Flippers in Florida cause loss of millions

“At least 37 groups of property flippers operated in Sarasota and Manatee counties. The groups bought hundreds of properties worth more than $350 million and sold them to associates for inflated prices. The flippers identified by the Herald-Tribune — and the people who ultimately bought their properties — have so far defaulted on more than $450 million in mortgage loans. Their defaults account for $1 in every $13 lost to foreclosure in Sarasota and Manatee counties from 2005 through 2008.”
