There are two ways to look at bank foreclosures: (1) dumps that nobody in their right minds would buy or (2) buying opportunities. I think the 3 bedroom 2 bath 1060 sq ft condo at 23 Whistling Duck is located in the Nature Preserve area of the Key West Golf Club Development is a buying opportunity. The property is bank owned so we already know we have a motivated seller. The asking price was just reduced to $364,900 or $344 per sq ft. The property is vacant and easy to show. If potential buyers get pre-qualified through Countrywide Home Loans to purchase this (or another Countrywide owned property) they will receive a free appraisal and credit report if buyer finances through Countywide. I'm not a pitchman for Countrywide. But it is sweetening the deal for would-be buyers.
I'm cheating on this listing because the pics above are of the property when it was listed by the previous owner. He paid $753,000 in July 2005. Fast forward to today and the asking price is around $300,000 lower. The actual sales price will most likely be even lower. CLICK HERE to see more info about the unit and see photos of how it looks today. Don't worry it's not all messed up or trashed. This could be a sweet deal. Other units in the same area are priced much higher. CLICK HERE to see what other similarly sized and located units are priced at in today's market.
If you would like to see this unit up closed and personal please call me,Gary Thomas, 305-766-2642 to schedule a showing. It isn't my listing, but it is my job to help people find good deals.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell

- 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.
