    From what I can see, there is a lot of hype about the local real estate market and how hot the rents are and sky high. What that does is attract a lot of speculators, investors and builders. The new buildings have smaller units, only they are flashing all of the bells and whistles. They have bling. Plenty of prospects view these and then go out and view larger units in older buildings and they are disappointed because they’ve already seen so much eye candy out there. I am also looking at the fact that people who own property are posting rentals at significantly lower estimates than what the experts computer generated estimates come in at. I think, there are those who are relying on media driven accounts to hold out for high paying tenants, and then there are those who are renting at the market and filling their vacancies.
