Bank Owned Investment Property - Summerland Key, Florida

Every now and then I get a phone call or an email from a potential buyer who has had a persistent dream of buying a place in Key West that he or she or they could operate as an investment. The goal is give that potential buyer the reason to move here and have a place to go to that could turn a profit. With the rate of return banks are offering in today's diluted economy, making a profit on just about any non-risk investment ought to provide a greater rate of return. Preferred Properties is the listing brokerage for a Bank Owned Trailer Park located on Summerland Key, just 29 miles east of Key West. The listing Realtor describes the property as:
"The Summerland Palms Trailer Park fronts US1 with easy highway access. The parcel consists of 21 condominium sites for monthly rental plus an on site laundry and sewer treatment plant. The well maintained property is approx. 39,328 sq. feet and has an annual income of appx. $170,000. There is potential for on site building, redevelopment and/or future use of building rights off site. A full package is available."
Summerland Palms is a trailer condominium where all of the lot spaces (except one) are owned by a single owner, the Seller. The Seller leases the 21 spaces to the individual trailer owners who pay monthly rent. There is a common laundry facility that also generates income. The combined projected gross income is $170,000. According to the listing agent, this investment would generate about a 6% return on investment.

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.
