Do you get excited thinking about wrestling a 70 lb grouper into your boat?
Admit it to yourself: you are buy curious. You search the Key West mls and view websites like Trulia and Zillow looking for buying opportunities in Key West. You are reading my blog right now in hopes of finding your place in Paradise.
The biggest mistake I ever made in Key West real estate was not what I bought or what I did not buy. It was in taking too long to walk away from my life up north. I had thousands of excuses - mostly in the money I had tied up in real estate where I lived. I let that "investment" control my life for too many years. After I got loose from my albatross and had the cash, I took advantage of a buying opportunity that forced me to act quickly and decisively. I don't regret moving here for a minute.
I know a lot of readers spend a lot of company time checking out the mls on a daily if not hourly basis. When I am not showing properties I am normally online and make regular checks to see what just got listed or what property had a price reduction. I get phone calls and emails from some of you asking or commenting about changes in the mls. Some are so quick that I know the inquiring mind is spending company time looking at the mls. I guess that is better than getting tweets from your favorite congressman.
