For those sun, sea, and sand filled souls beginning the search for their Key West dream home, the reality of purchasing a corner of paradise can serve up a strong shot of sticker shock.

The common definition of a starter home is: a relatively small, economical house or condominium that meets the requirements of young people buying their first home. In Key West, a broader definition is required to encompass the realities of island living. Let’s face it, real estate in Key West is not inexpensive. While many newcomers dream of finding a spacious Old Town cottage with a sparkling pool, nestled on a quiet lane, that is just a short stroll to Duval Street, the harsh realities of our housing market can be daunting. Consequently, for those sea, sun, and sand filled souls that can’t imagine starting out in life—or starting life anew—anywhere that cannot easily be described as a tropical paradise, expectations often must be adjusted. What you get for $379,000.00 in Cleveland, is not what you get here. In Key West, downsizing is not just for empty nesters. For most buyers, a Key West starter home will generally cost more, be smaller, lack a pool, and will not be in the historic district. That being said, wonderful island homes are waiting to be discovered.
