"So, how's the market in the Keys?"

Ask any Realtor in the Keys and they will tell you that this is the question they are asked the most, particularly in relation to distressed properties on the market.

The answer is: Not bad at all.

Many areas in South Florida have been hit pretty hard by short sales and foreclosures. While the market in the Florida Keys has not been completely untouched, it certainly has fared better than many of our nearby areas.  Less than 19% of all single family homes on the market are distressed properties, and 22% of condos, townhomes and condotels on the market are distressed properties.

A quick look in the MLS reveals the following statistics for bank owned properties and short sales:


Total Inventory: 1,541
Bank Owned: 37
Potential Short Sale: 250


Total inventory: 600
Bank Owned: 21
Potential Short Sale: 111

Note, these numbers are as of the time of writing this article and they do change daily as properties go on and off the market
