It is so far off the beaten path that you may miss it the first time your drive there. Once inside, you'll find decorated $1 bills (dare I say millions?) stapled all over the walls-a fun tradition patrons have been carrying on for years. There is a charming upstairs dining area perfect for parties. The Pub's specialty is pizza, but the buffalo shrimp is also a favorite. Jon Bon Jovi has even been rumored to stop by when he's in town. Be on the lookout for the occasional Key Deer passing by!

  The Lower Keys real estate market has had seasonal highs and lows this past year, but the beginning of 2011 brought a steady climb. As this chart shows, the number of properties sold in March 2011 is slightly above the number sold in March 2010. The total number of properties (including single family homes, condos, town-homes, mobile homes, & multi-units) sold in the Lower Keys  in March 2010 was 18 and the number sold in March 2011 was 21.  The number of properties sold and the average price of these properties both showed positive growth. According to the March 2011 Lower Keys Real Estate Statistical Analysis published by the Key West Association of Realtors, the average price for all properties sold in the Lower Keys during March 2010 was $341,507.67 and in March 2011 the average p...

I love numbers...and the stories that they tell, the impartial, matter-of-fact, in-your-face, veracity.  Good or Bad. Yes, I know it's odd but one of my favorite times of the year is the latter part of January, as that is when I am able to accurately compile the previous year's sales statistics.  So, what do last year's numbers tell us??  Well the most resounding message is that prices have tumbled and that it's a great time to make a move on Florida Keys Real Estate!  Both Waterfront and Non Waterfront properties are a great opportunity, with the median price for a non waterfront home being $ 210,000, and a Waterfront Home being $390,000.  Not great news for Sellers, though better than 2009 when very little was selling. Below are Figures for Lower Keys Waterfront and Non Waterfront 201...

Wastewater Master Plan Big Pine Key ~ Master Plan ~ Septic System If you live or plan to buy a home on the islands of Cudjoe, Summerland, Little Torch, Middle Torch, Big Torch, Ramrod, No Name Key or Big Pine Key you are wondering if and when you will be hooked up to the central sewer system. The Florida Keys are known for their unique marine ecosystem.  To preserve the marine ecosystem the State of Florida mandated that nutrient load levels be reduced in the Florida Keys.  The Sanitary Wastewater Master Plan or "Master Plan" was finalized around the year 2000.  The approximately 23,000 septic tanks in the Florida Keys were supposed to be removed by July 2010. The Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA) is designing, building and operating the County-owned infrastructure for the citizens...

Septic Tanks and Sewer System Big Pine Key FloridaIn Monroe County, and on the islands of Cudjoe, Summerland Key, Little Torch Key, Middle Torch Key, Ramrod and Big Pine Key then hooking into the state mandated central sewer system is a legitimate buyer concern.  A plan to bring a central system to No Name Key (NNK) has not been established as of August 2010. If you are a buyer or a buyer's agent and are considering a property with a septic tank the first thing to do is to go to www.SepticSearch.com.  The Department of Health is in the process of scanning septic tank files to this site.  The site has records for permitted septic tanks.  If no septic tank records are available it is possible that the septic tank is undocumented.  If you have questions you can contact the Department of He...

Big Pine in particular is one of the largest and most interesting Islands in the Keys. It has a population just over 5000 and as of Sept 2005-there were homes starting at $340,000. As you get closer to the water or buy a home on a canal, the prices rise accordingly. But there are quite a few different developments, mostly of single family houses, and some are pricier than others. Water depth affects prices, and some areas have about 15 inches and some have 3-4 feet. Obviously this means you can have a certain kind of boat in some areas that won’t work in other areas. It depends what you’re looking for. The shallower areas have more direct and private access to a lot of the wilder and more pristine parts of the Island and adjacent backcountry. They may also (but not reliably) be less exp...

The Lower Keys or what I’ll call “Big Pine metro”, includes the islands of Big Pine, Little Torch and Big Torch Key, Ramrod and Summerland, Cudjoe and Sugarloaf. Each Island is unique in its environment and boating access, which does translate down to home prices. More on that below. When you enter the Lower Keys, you will see right away that it is much more laid back. Generally, the further you get away from Miami, the more the Bahamian feel. And to some extent, particularly on Big Pine and its attached No Name Key, and a couple of other spots in the Lower Keys, that sensibility is well-preserved despite the rapid development of the very limited remaining land available for new building. Parts of Sugarloaf preserve this same feel, and residents of the Torches and Ramrod would claim tha...
