Key West Rental Property- Buying Real Estate To Rent

September 20th, 2012

During the height of the Key West real estate market, when every homeowner was a “millionaire”, the issue discussed constantly and urgently by the city commission was “work-force” housing.   It seemed, as housing prices quadrupled with each blink of an eye, that regular working folks would be absolutely priced out of the market forever and our town would be left without any worker bees.

Several “work-force” housing projects were built in Key West and were immediately filled either by renting or selling at reduced prices.  As soon as a property opened it’s doors, it would be filled and more folds would be waiting for the next opportunity.  The island came together and worked hard to provide Key West Real Estate to rent for people who could not otherwise have afforded to live in Key West.  Caring about people is a common trait among Key Westers and it is one of the things I love best about our town.

But I degress….

Fast Forward 2012…. People are looking to rent!  They want apartments in old town, homes in new town, condos on the beach and everything in between.  If you have the inclination to put your money to good use and get a good return at the same time, consider buying a property to rent.  We will be happy help you find the perfect Key West rental property and we will fill it and manage it as well!  We’ve been selling and managing real estate for over 20 years.  Put our experience to work for you.

It makes a lot of sense.  Please call us to discuss the possibilities!
