Kiabautermann I do understand what your saying. But show me the infrastructure (jobs) that can support families here on Marco Island? There are two types of jobs here on the island, real estate and service jobs, waiters and waitress, etc. You can't have Kids, Kids, Kids unless families have good paying jobs. If you look at the Marriott, there jobs average $9.50 an hour same with the Hilton. A couple can't buy a home here making that type of income, let alone a family! The bank stopped liar loans and real estate will keep dropping on this island until wages catch up with prices. 75% of all mortgage loans given on this island were non income "Liar loans". Bottom line: Until we have employers here willing to pay a "fair wage". Or the city instead of spending money works on bringing jobs to this area, things will remain the same, as most families still can't afford to live on Marco Island! Sad but true.
