A relatively large number of people in Islamorada telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.67% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes. Tavernier FL Houses
Another notable thing is that Islamorada is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the village’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live. Tavernier FL Houses
The village is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Islamorada has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Islamorada a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here. Tavernier FL Houses
