Good Deals - Recent Key West Sales

No Good Deed should go unnoticed. There were three sales that hit the mls since June first that I believe are worth noting.

I wrote about 811 Southard Street on December 21st. It was a short sale. It originally listed for $5,300,000 and sold for $2,500,000 or $656 per sq ft CLICK HERE. That is a great price for a great property in a very good Old Town location. Congratulations to Rudy and Roger.

I never got the chance to write about 1020 Southard Street CLICK HERE (the Gingerbread Man House) because it went under contract within a day or so of being listed. It sold at the list price of $1,975,000 or $760 per sq ft. The Gingerbread Man House was renovated a few years ago by the same duo that recently renovated 728 Love Lane. The pretty as a picture house at 728 Love Lane house is on the market now and is priced at $1,795,000. CLICK HERE.

The Buyer of 1020 Southard Street has their "old house" at 1108 Fleming Street on the market. CLICK HERE for more info on this house priced at $1,295,000. I wrote about it CLICK HERE. If you are a serious buyer for a great house in Old Town, consider this property. Remember, the current owner just purchased a very expensive house a block away. Hint! Hint!

Another house I wrote about also closed this week. CLICK HERE to read what I wrote about 924 Flagler Avenue in the Casa Marina area. It was listed for $1,500,000 and sold for $1,250,000 or $606 per sq ft. The house is as original as any I have seen in Key West, and it has been lovingly maintained by the same family since it was built in 1935. The new owner bought a Key West treasurer. Mitzi Krabill represented the seller and I represented the buyer. Congratulations Tim. And Merry Christmas.

Good Deeds, indeed! Each of the three houses I mentioned are important houses in Key West. I'm sure there will be a few readers that think the buyers paid a lot. Wait a couple of years. These buyers will be remembered for the great deals they got.

If you are thinking of buying a place in Key West, you might want to put your property search in full gear. The market of available good houses in good locations is shrinking.

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.
