 A loyal reader of my blog sent me a text on Friday asking if the Hilton Garden Inn had sold recently. I knew no sale went through the Key West MLS but decided to search the Monroe County Property records. And there it was: the hotel  sold on October 12, 2021 for $58,000,000. The buyer is a new L...

A decade ago I sold one of my favorite homes in Key West to a lovely couple from the Midwest. They looked at houses for a couple of years during and after the Great Recession in 2008. They had cash to buy the perfect or imperfect house. They chose the latter. They engaged a premiere architect and...

Yesterday I blogged about the sale of an empty lot in the tony Casa Marina Area of Key West. Astounding price. Two days on the market. Later in the day a fellow Realtor listed a small guest house near my office for over $6 million. Bonkers Asking Price or so I thought. We shall see what happens t...

I blogged about 1420 Whalton Street a couple of times over the past five years. It was a mid-century house located in one of the best locations in Key West. I showed the place to several people who hemmed and hawed. They had reservations. I told them to buy it, rent it, and bank the place. I said...

Above photo taken October 24, 2014 across the street from Bourbon Street Pub. That's somebody's mother. It has nothing to do with real estate. Just wanted to post it in remembrance of that day. I started today's blog on February 14, 2011 but did not post it. I found it while searching the word "a...

 Do you recognize this Key West location? If you are a local or returning visitor to Key West you probably have walked or driven by it many times. The two buildings in the rear are your clue. If you are a Keywester in your late 70s you might be one of the children. The dark areas of the map show ...

  Long time readers of my real estate blog know how much I value photos to help add meaning to my posts. I confess I watch repeat episodes of The Three Stooges. I watched the shows as a kid and as an adult. Some are funny. Some are hysterical. And the short entitled Dutiful But Dumb (1941) are pr...

 I was rummaging around my old shoebox and found some photos of the old Albury House on Southard Street. The house was purchased over a decade ago but it still seems like it was only a couple of years. It is absolutely perfect now. But it was totally different in 2009 when I took these photos. En...

  1009 Southard Street, Key West, Florida as it appears today on one of the most important blocks as far as Key West architecture is concerned. I wrote about this house in my blog many years ago. I recently showed it and was reminded of all the potential this house had then and has now. Like many...
