Bonny and Rob Gothier plan to move from their Dillsburg, Pennsylvania horse farm to a warmer climate sometime in the next 10 years.

The Gothiers had originally set their budget at $1 million for a home in Key West, but they know they may end up paying more for a house that is large enough for the family and their visitors. Their wish list includes at least three bedrooms, an upgraded kitchen with lots of counter space, a large family room and outdoor space for entertaining. Realtor Cory Held is on the prowl for them in Key West.
