Buying A Home in The Keys
Buying a home involves more than searching for and looking at properties. It's a complex transaction involving one of your most important investments.
Each area of the Keys has issues that buyer's need to be aware of. Here are just some of the questions buyers need answers to:
Sewer Update - is the home you're looking at hooked up, or still in progress?
Special Assessments - Does the property have any unpaid assessments?
Controlling Depth - do the waterways accommodate your boat's draft?
Permits - was the property properly permitted?
Zoning - can the property be used the way you want to use it?
Recent Sales - how does the property compare to others on the market?
