Survey finds the rate of vacancies is surging in Orlando.

A new survey is not showing where people are moving to but rather where they're moving from.

Forbes magazine recently released their list of America's emptiest cities, and the city with the highest number of rental vacancies - approximately one in four - was Orlando at 23.6 percent.

Speaking to the magazine, Ken Delvillar, director of apartment brokerage services at Cushman & Wakefield in Orlando, said that the increased demand developers were expecting to receive simply hasn't materialized.

Second on Forbes' list was Las Vegas.

To arrive at the numbers, the study looked at the country's 75 largest metropolitan areas as surveyed by the U.S. Census Department. It then looked at the number of vacancies in single-family and apartments units over all four quarters of 2010 in those locales.

Other places where the vacancy rate was high included Memphis, Riverside, California and Dayton, Ohio.
