Two senators, two very different real estate investors

Both of Florida's senators made the news this week for their real estate investments. 

Tuesday, U.S. News and World Report noted that Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, has put up for sale his Arlington, Va., condo overlooking Washington D.C. If he gets the asking price of $1,995,000, USN&WR reported, "Nelson would recoup a profit of $835,000. He paid $1,160,000 for the condo in 2003." 

And today, jumping off a report in Reuters about Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's finances, BuzzFeed reports that he is "underwater."  

Writes BuzzFeed: "The junior senator from the state that is ground zero for the housing crisis -– and an oft-mentioned likely Vice Presidential nominee -– is also deep in debt, with two homes on which he owes more than the value of the house, an aide confirmed."
