Exclamation Marathon Florida Pro's/Con's?

My place of employment has an opening in Marathon Florida. I was thinking about putting in for it. Slim chance of getting it, but I figured it can't hurt to try.

Lucky dude! A few years ago I made arrangements to fly down there to check out a house with a drive on grass airstrip in the front yard and clean canal moorage in the backyard. Sadly it was sold within 2 days, and by the time I got there, the new owner already had a nice Beech staggerwing parked under it. What was the asking price on the house? 300k AAAArrrrrggg! Sometimes it is worth buying sight unseen. My last best shot at the affordable dream house. Likely worth three times + that now.

I looked at houses in Marathon and local Keys in 1994
