Profzed, As I wrote in the blog last week if you are thinking about purchasing an older home on Marco Island forget it your time will be limited.
I purchased my old Deltona home in 2000 and I love it. However if you see the mindset of Marco Island it is like joining a Country Club.
I myself saw that. I visited the island from the late eighties and always wanted a home to retire there. I purchased in 2000 far in advance of retirement and have seen the changes. Some folks think progress will prosper the island while others want the Island to remain the same as Deltona Corp. and the Mackle Bros. envisioned.
MICA was formed to carry on Deltona Deed Restrictions. I believe MICA has served the residents well although I believe we should not have to "join" any group as that should have come with ownership. I believe MICA should be a part of the City Planning Process and MICA Restrictions should overlay that plan for compliance.
So Profzed I will say this this Island is divided bad. The money factor is huge. Money drives this Island and money is this island. If you have money you are welcomed. If you are a regular Joe stay away you will not be happy. I see the divisions are deep and it is all about the money.
