Florida Keys Real Estate Market - September 5th to September 11th, 2011

This is the time of year in the Florida Keys when things start to slow down. Restaurants usually close or limit their hours, many businesses temporarily close so the owners can go on vacation, and the real estate market begins to slow down.

This year has been no exception.  There were fewer pending contracts and fewer sales than we've seen over the last few weeks, but new listing activity is still strong.

This past week, 69 new listings came on the market, 28 listings went under contract and 25 listings sold.

Canalfront on Plantation Key - $349,000
Of the new listings, there is a canalfront home on Plantation Key in Tavernier that is now on the market for just $349,000. This home needs some work, but it is in one of the Upper Keys favorite neighborhoods - Plantation Key Colony - and is on a canal.  It is a 4 bedroom home with 3 baths and is being marketed as a short sale.
