Everybody knows what a New York Minute is, right? I checked the URBAN DICTIONARY for a readily understandable definition and read this:
"So would you do her?"
"In a new york minute."
When I first saw the new Hollingshed House listing at 611 Southard Street Unit #3 I knew instantly that it would sell in a New York Minute. This is how the listing agent describes this property:
"Wonderful property with EXCELLENT rental record. Transient License included! One block from Duval. Totally renovated in 2008. Wood floors, new Kitchen and bath. Professionally decorated."
This very same Hollingshed House unit was listed for sale on December 12, 2006 and sold (closed) 39 days later. That is a New York Minute in Key West real estate speak. And I think the current asking price, location, and Transient Rental License will create the same buyer response in our current market. Here is why: This Hollingshed House unit is a bit larger than a typical Shipyard Condominium unit. The Hollingshed House unit has just one bedroom whereas most at Shipyard fit two bedrooms into the same square footage or less. The Hollingshed House pool is shared by only a couple of other units whereas Shipyard pool is shared by half of New Jersey at any given moment. This second floor unit has a balcony which provides views of the comings and goings on Southard Street as people make their treks to Duval Street and beyond. Unit #3 is offered at $434,900.
Sarabeth's is located across the street. Fast Buck Freddie's is a block away at the corner of Duval and Fleming Streets. Starbucks, Rick's, Sloppy's, and tons of bars and feederies are located to the north. You will find some fine dining establishments to the south including La Trattoria, Antonia's, 915, Martin's, La Te Da, and Denny's. (I went there once. That was enough.) There is live theatre at The Waterfront Playhouse and The Red Barn. The Tropic Cinema always has something you will not see at the Regal Cinema in New Town. The Tennessee Williams Theatre is a jaunt so you will need friends or a taxi, but Key West has lots of taxis and lots of people who are very friendly.
