The Short Sale listing (this is not my listing) at 809 Fleming Street will surely get a lot of attention because of the prime Old Town Key West location. It has a lot of Rah! Rah! Rah! factor. The house was built in 1906 as a single family residence. The property is currently a legal two story duplex. Upstairs is a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom - 699 sq ft unit with a balcony overlooking the 800 block of Fleming Street that rents for $2,000 per month. Downstairs is 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom - 1074 sq ft with a terrace that also overlooks Fleming Street. this apartment rents for $2400 per month. The property has off street parking. The asking price is $799,000 or $422 per sq ft.
800 Block of Fleming Street
Everybody knows the value of location. This place has location, location, and location. As an investment property, this duplex has the appeal of being well located with enough bedrooms and living spaces plus the front balconies to attract long term renters with ease. A lot of local singles live in roommate situations where rent is divided based on the number of bedrooms or space shared. This location is great for locals who do not have a car because most of Old Town is within an easy walking or biking distance to most jobs and most of the nightlife. Duval Street is three blocks west, the Historic Key West Seaport is two blocks north, and just about any place important is within a five to ten minute walk. Keeping this property rented will never be a problem.

A prospective buyer might decide to upgrade the property and perhaps add a pool where the two off street parking spaces presently exists. It has Dade County Pine on the inside and classic Key West charm on the outside. The location might make this property an excellent renovation project for the buyer who wants to create a small island oasis that he or she could rent as a vacation rental to help defray the cost of ownership. Or a new owner could simply continue to collect the rent on one unit and live in the other. CLICK HERE to view the Key West mls datasheet on this property.

Parking for now, perhaps a pool in the future...
