Florida Keys Market Update - September 12th, 2011 to September 18th, 2011

You can tell it is the end of summer here in the Florida Keys. Many restaurants have started closing at least one day a week, if not closed completely for a temporary reprieve. The roads are much quieter right now as well, with the exception of this past weekend when we had the annual Poker Run with motorcycle enthusiasts from all over riding the Overseas Highway to Key West.

In the real estate market, there were 91 new listings, 29 pending sales and 25 closed sales.
