I love spring in Key West. The weather is nice, the skies are typically clear and sunny. We don't get true change of seasons, but for those of that live here year around, we feel and see the change.
The Key West real estate market continues to move forward and we are seeing an increase in prices. Honestly, our market feels like there is a FIRE SALE happening. If the price is good, it's as a good as SOLD.
Since many more people come into town this time of year, if you are going to preview homes while in Key West, just remember, you may need to make an appointment in advance. Many homes are occupied and need notice to show. Please be patient and of course, have a good time while you are here.
Here are the KEY WEST April 2013 numbers:
Low price: $360,000
Median price: $605,000
High price: $2,395,000
There were a total of 29 single family homes sold in Key West.
THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE ALL TYPES OF PROPERTIES...only single family. There are a few short sales and a few foreclosure opportunities available. If these are not for you, there are also well maintained homes, condos, waterfront and luxury homes. And please realize that when shopping, remember; if you need financing, or you are relocating, you may need a home that is move-in ready so the more information you can share about your real needs, the better the quality of showing properties.
Key West is truly an awesome little city, but you need a local real estate market expert to help filter through the inventory and the many details that are involved in purchasing. Yes, there are a lot of details, codes, compliances, and of course, paperwork.
