What you get for your Money

Time for another comparison post of what you can get for your money. You have seen comparison properties in magazines and television shows. This is my version. I am from Denver, so I selected one home out of 4 homes priced between $1 million to $1.250 million in area code 80218--my old stomping grounds. The area includes much of Capitol Hill (gentrified in the 1970's and Denver Country Club (never needed re-gentrification). The area is a close drive to downtown Denver and the best shopping, restaurants, sports and entertainment venues in the city.

The house I picked was at 467 FRANKLIN ST and priced at $1,250,000 and is 4,365 Sq. Ft. of living space which is $268 per sq. ft. It has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, 2 car garage and all the bells and whistles you get up north in America. CLICK HERE to see all the pics and details on this lovely home.

There were 23 active listings CLICK HERE by comparison in the Old Town Key West area and I selected 621 Canfield Lane as my comp. It is a renovated and restored wit a designer kitchen and baths, high ceilings, hardwood floors, and Dade County Pine. Private, gated and lush tropical yard includes pool and Jacuzzi, large deck and sky deck on second floor. Off Street Parking, Great Old Town location. It only has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and 1260 sq. ft. of living space. It is priced at $1,149,000 or $912 per sq. ft. It is owned by a successful realtor who has reduced the asking price from $1,249,000 to the present price.

Key West is definitely priced higher than a similarly outfitted home in Denver. But then you would be living in Denver. Not Key West. Denver is my hometown and I loved it. I just happen to love Key West more. It's like being on vacation 24/7. If you are thinking of buying a home or condo in the Key West area, please CLICK HERE to preview all current mls listings.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

Key West, Florida, United States
I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
