OK, so here you are, ready to snatch up your own little piece of Paradise.
But here’s the big question: “Which Key is right for you?”
Our 125 mile long subtropical island chain consists of more than 1700 islands, many of which, offer unique opportunities for investing in real estate.
Known as “The Dive Capital Of The World,” Key Largo is the first and northernmost Key of the Florida Keys and although it’s only about an hour’s drive from South Florida’s two major airports, this funky spot is a world away and a perfect spot to hang your flip flops.
Just south of Key Largo is Islamorada, aka “The Sportfishing Capital of The World” where backcountry sport fishing and saltwater fly fishing were pioneered. Quiet and upscale, it’s also one of the Keys’ top dining destinations.
Often referred to as “The Keys Boating & Family Destination,” Marathon boasts homey resorts, luxury accommodations, marinas and the conveniences of a modern community, including a brand new 58-bed hospital, airport, golf course and plenty of shops while retaining the charm of its roots as a 19th-century fishing village.
Big Pine & The Lower Keys is the Keys’ “Eco-Destination”and home to two national wildlife refuges including the National Key Deer Rescue – a safe haven for the miniature Key deer. Things are very laid back here and it’s a perfect place to live the “Old Keys” lifestyle.
Located closer to Cuba than to Miami, Key West is Florida’s irreverent southernmost subtropical paradise where Gingerbread mansions share palm-studded streets with tin-roofed “Conch” houses. It’s unique confluence of history, climate, natural beauty, cultural diversity, architecture and unabashed romantic appeal makes it a colorful place to set down roots.
So the question remains: Which Key do you think is right for you?
