Why It’s Time to Buy a Home in the Lower Key
There are many more reasons to purchase a home in the Keys besides it’s location and the fabulous weather:

  1. Creeping home values. Prices are going up; however, homes here are still affordable, but that won’t be the case by the end of the year.
  2. Rising mortgage rates. Interest rates on home loans are going up and buying now means saving thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.
  3. Climbing inflation. You’ve likely been to the grocery store and to the gas station lately, and have noticed the price for consumer goods are on the rise.
  4. Paying less down. If you haven’t seen the real estate and mortgage industry news, lenders are approving home loans with less down than twenty percent.
  5. Enjoying a better lifestyle. Such wonderful weather and being in an ideal climate means more opportunity for outdoor recreation, which means better health.
  6. Making income from renting the home out. When you’re not using the property, then you can rent it out. Rent it for less than two weeks a year, and don’t pay a dime in income tax.
  7. Having a dedicated place to stay. When it’s time to get away and enjoy the outdoors and warm weather, you won’t have to make plans because you’ll have your own place to stay.


The bottom line is, there has never been a better time to invest in paradise and, invest in your own future!
