Affordable Housing issue for our workforce in Key West

I am very concerned with housing in Key West. Although Monroe County and the City of Key West are working a long term solution. We need an immediate solution. We need our absentee owners of non transient licensed properties to re consider doing vacation rentals and transitioning into long term rentals. By doing this the owner will have more income over the year and less expenses. I understand they want the opportunity to visit the property throughout the year. Maybe they can give up their vacation for a year or two to help our island’s workforce.  Read More »

Long Term Rentals vs. Vacation Rentals – Which Makes the Most Sense for My Home?

I was recently reading the Citizen’s Voice section in the Key West Citizen, and I came across a comment from someone who thought renting a property out in the short term is a lot better than renting a long term property because when you rent short term to vacationers, the tenants sign a temporary contract and then move out when they’re supposed to.

He worried that if it was a family he was evicting, it would make him look bad.  Read More »
