Growth rate since April 2000: 83.9%
Retirees represent a good portion of Flagler County's demographic: The median age is 50, more than 10 years older than the state median and 13 years older than the U.S.

"The core of our population is retirees," said local real estate agent Matthew Wilson of Coquina Real Estate and Construction. "The retirees bring in their accumulated assets."

Flagler was the nation's fastest growing county for three straight years this decade. But the state's real estate bust has left the county with a big "hangover," said Wilson.

Population growth has continued through the bust but at a slower pace, just 1% for the 12 months ended July 1 2009 after compiling 83% growth for the previous eight years.The residential stock covers a wide range, with million-dollar homes in gated, beachfront communities and more affordable residences inland.

There were 71 bank repossessions in May, according to RealtyTrac, and 229 foreclosure filings.
