907 Elizabeth Street - Old Town - Key West

Just Listed (but not by me) 907 Elizabeth Street in Old Town Key West. You know the neighborhood. Seven Fish Restaurant is on the corner at Olivia Street (CLICK HERE).
It's an easy to walk to St. Mary's Sar of the Sea Catholic Church CLICK HERE up on the opposite corner on Truman Avenue. Duval Street is two blocks west. The new Old Town Gym is a three block walk east of Elizabeth. The Coffee Mill is a couple of blocks beyond that. The point is the location is really convenient for the second home owner who wants proximity to everything. And here is the best part: this house is listed at $625,000 or $406 per sq ft. CLICK HERE for an aerial perspective of 907 Elizabeth Street. I even noted the location of Seven Fish to help the viewer.

This is how the listing Realtor describes 907 Elizabeth Street:
"Just an easy stroll to Duval Street, this is a lovely Conch House built in 1928 with two bedrooms and two baths, living and dining rooms with high ceilings and a nice eat in kitchen with Viking gas range and new refrigerator. Laundry room, 2 zone central air, a covered rear sitting porch that leads to a bricked patio and loggia with many mature palms and flower beds, and room for a pool."
The 1540 sq ft house sits on a very large lot (3275 sq ft or 25' x 131'). The house has the obligatory white picket fence. But the front has an electric gate that opens onto bricked off street parking CLICK HERE.

FYI, status just changed to contingent. Two days after being listed!

Gee, do you think it might have something to do with the list price set at what the market is currently experiencing? It's so blatently obvious that these "delusional sellers" (I loved that comment from your other post) have no clue as to the state of the Key West market. Looks like someone got a good deal...

Delusional. Yes.
But I blame the realtors enabling those sellers who still can't understand why it isn't selling when they paid so much for the property just a few years ago.
I blame the 'me' generation of idiots who think they are right to assume everyone will pay the price they set and not argue the facts that the property is worth far less. We have to get over the mindset that you can't lose money in real estate and prices will keep going up. Most of these sellers need a good dose of reality and will only get it when the foreclosure sign goes on the door, the furniture goes out into the street and doors are padlocked by local law enforcement. Maybe then will they look up long enough from their own fantasy world and say 'duh?!'

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.
