If u r a transplant to KW, PLEASE share with me your journey of how you made the move. I am so unhappy in the midwest. I just want to lay in my hammock, sip a cold one, and feel the island breeze between my toes. I have pets so renting isnt an option. Has anyone read the book Quit your job and move to Key West? Havent read it yet but interested.

Too bad no input . I have every intention of heading back down south . I've never lived in the Keys but after a motorcycle wreck Im really needing the warmer temps it offers year long and frankly so does my bikini.-lol
Alway nice to make friends before the fact . Touch base if you get the chance . The best idea I've came up with for the first year is to rent furnished and then relocate with my personal belongings if the area turns out to be within budget .
When looking through locations I noticed something called a "habitat program" . I've never used nor do I know anyone that has . Any input on what that might be ?

I haven't heard of that particular program. I know in my state there are first time home buyer programs. Maybe check with the Key West building dept to see if they are familiar.
Are all for closure sites and at times gave homes/ condos in Monroe County
