Bank Owned Homes - Flagler Avenue - Key West

Flagler Avenue is a major street in Key West that brings traffic onto the island and past homes, multi-family properties, and a few strip malls. It abruptly ends at the posh Casa Marina Resort. It is like big feeder streets located across the country. Every town has own. Most people don't want to live on feeder streets like Flagler Avenue. As a result prices are usually lower because of the address itself and not because of any necessary deficiency with the property. Listed below are two bank owned single family homes that might make a good buying opportunity.

2918 Flagler Avenue is a 3 bedroom 1 bath house with 1309 sq ft of living space plus a separate building out back by the pool. The lot is very large - 6360 sq ft. Someone bought this house in June 2006 and paid $800,000. It is now Bank Owned and is offered at $335,000 or $256 per sq ft. CLICK HERE to read what the listing Realtor says about this house and view PHOTOS. I showed this a couple of months ago. It went under contract soon thereafter and just went back on the market. 2918 Flagler is the poster child for bank owned homes. It smelled and it looks terrible. It needs cleaned and painted. It needs some landscaping.

A mile to the east you will find 3814 Flagler Avenue which is also Bank Owned. This 5 bedroom 3 bath home with a beautiful poo, two car garage and 3109 sq. ft of living space on a gigantic 14,175 sq ft lot on the water is offered at $950,000 or $306 per sq ft. CLICK HERE to read more detailed information and view PHOTOS of this house. This is how the listing Realtor describes this property:
"Great opportunity to own a significant waterfront property on a canal in Key West. This 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home has 3,109 square feet of living space and sits on a oversized 14175 square foot lot with a large pool. A few of the amenities include a two car garage, gorgeous tile floors, new roof, seawall, fireplace and plenty of storage. Bank owned."

The property provides immediate deep water access. There is a giant pool and off street parking. So what if the roof is shaped a little funny. We all had funny hair in the 1970s when this house was built.

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.
