Come on now! This house was inhabited by 'The Great Randi'. Or 'Amazing', or something. Surely he would have exorcised any and all ghosts/demons, et al.

Although .... it has been vacant for two years ....

Property values in Florida historically have a very slow appreciation, and often a a negative appreciation, due to oversupply. People retire to Florida, live there for several years, then die. There is always so much real estate for sale in Florida that prices almost never appreciate significantly. My father-in-law recently moved from a one bedroom condo to a two bedroom unit. He sold the one bedroom unit he had owned for over a decade for approximately what he paid for it.

Property values here are up about 55% from the low, still down about 30% from the peak for middle class homes in suburban neighborhoods. Beachfront and beach-adjacent property is in especially short supply, and appreciating quickly. I'm not sure what the situation there is, but I expect it is similar.

The exact opposite it true. You've missed what happened in between those years. Prices shot up dramatically and quickly then fell dramatically, with much wider swings than in most of the country. http://www.zillow.com/local-info/#me...94856%26el%3D0

You just haven't done your research. They not only paid their tax bill in full, they paid it early and got a discount. The records are all available online for those that choose not to be ignorant of the facts.

JREF does not currently have any outstanding debts on the property. Also there have been requests for money made and several donations have been given to JREF as a result.
