How about my title for today's blog "Bank Owned - Key West - Waterfront - Affordable"? Four things that entice many buyers to take a further look. They included bank owned - the owner is a local bank. Key West - just about every body's dream place to live. Waterfront - okay, the house is located on a Key Haven canal but it provides quick access to the big ocean. And, yes, it is affordable by Key West standards - priced at $599,000.
This bank owned property is located on Key Haven at 3 Aster Terrace. The house has four bedrooms, three baths, a big new kitchen, and lots of living space. The house is 2200 sq ft and sits on a large 6,000 sq ft lot. This is how the listing Realtor describes the property:
"Bank Owned! Large Key Haven home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, with one bedroom and bath that could be used as a mother-in-law unit or lockout. Renovated in 2007, some of the upgrades include kitchen with stainless appliances and maple cabinetry, new plumbing, new electric, impact resistant windows, and recessed lighting. Excellent floor plan with living room, den, dining room, and Florida room. Key Haven is a waterfront community located just minutes away from Old Town Key West. Excellent boating access to Gulf and Atlantic waters."The house was freshly painted when I showed it in was first listed in September. The electricity was turned on and the house has not sat festering away like so many properties owned by the big banks that are too big to fail and too big to care.

There is a cute little front yard complete with palm trees, picket fence, grass, and off street parking. The rear deck (canal side) needs a little landscaping, but that could be a great weekend project for the new homeowner. The house appeared to be in move-in condition. This property is priced at $599,000 or $265 per sq ft.
