I've been representing buyers of houses in Key West for twenty years. I have learned that most are buyers of houses in Key West are "pretty smart cookies". After all most are looking to spend over $500,000 to buy a place here (any place here costs about that much and probably a lot more). The come prepared to buy a place with knowledge of our market and our past sales. They know houses that have been on the market for a prolonged period of time are either over-priced or that there is something wrong with the house or the location. Houses that don't pass the smell test often ignored by potential buyers and equally often by real estate agents.
