It is catchy in Key West. Many of the houses are decorated as are some bikes, scooters, cars and trucks. You will see Santa hats all over the place. It's Christmas in Key West. If you play your cards right, you might have a place here next year.
Just listed, but not by me, 812 South Street #4, a one bedroom condo at South Park. The listing Realtor describes the new listing this way:
"Lovely second floor unit at desirable Southpark Condos. 1BR/1BA with new kitchen, living room and wonderful deck overlooking the pool and gardens. This unit has hardwood floors, central AC/heat and new wiring. Southpark offers a large heated pool, storage and laundry facilities and assigned off street parking. A short 3 Blocks to Duval Street. Great Old Town Location !"
There are only 16 units at Southpark condos and each has a designated off-street parking space. The four building complex has four units in each building with two units on the ground floor and two on the second floor (such as unit #4). The front garden is always superbly maintained. And the rear gardens and inviting pool are just too beautiful. (That photo is terrible. Maybe Santa will bring me a new camera.) Every time I show these units I can't wait until my buyers see the rear gardens and the pool.
My job is to sell real estate and not to put down other places that are for sale that are comparably priced because a buyer might want to buy there instead of here. As a buyer and a potential owner you ought to consider whether you want to own a place with a pool where you have a 150 or so fellow condo owners and tourists that can share the same pool and tanning space with you at any give time. South Park does not permit vacation rentals and there are no transient rentals-ever. The vignettes at poolside provide different places to sun or shade as you please. I sold a unit here earlier this year. When my buyers were walking by the pool they visited with residents and were immediately made welcome. It is that kind of place.
There is a cottage at the rear of the pool which houses individual storage lockers for each unit and there is a coin operated laundry for owners who do not have a washer and dryer in their own unit. (Unit #4 has its own washer and dryer.)
