The story in nearby Flagler County is bleaker. Homes in this retiree-heavy part of the state are selling for at least 50% less than they were five years ago. Realtor Carmen Bongiovanni calls it a “lost decade” for real estate. But prices have gotten so low that Bongiovanni is seeing more buyers emerge.
