Key West Homes for Sale
October 15, 2020
2020 has been a uniquely stressful year for folks in America and around the world. We have faced pandemic, civil unrest, political turmoil, economic chaos, and even a few hurricanes thrown in to keep things really stirred up along the US Gulf Coast and across the Caribbean. All that in sharp contrast to a big dose of quiet and boredom with lockdowns that forced an end to hectic schedules and a re-exploration of home life and the thrill of binge-watching Netflix.
As we finally enter fall and near the holiday season marking the end of this unprecedented annum, those of us who thus far have escaped relatively unscathed can only count our blessings and offer thoughts and prayers for the less-fortunate. If we look for an upside to the craziness, it has to be found in a lesson learned regarding the appreciation we owe for simple things like good health and safety for ourselves and loved ones, close relations with trusted friends, and a secure, comfortable home.
Many people seem to have embraced changed priorities. This appears to be reflected in a huge burst of buyer interest focused on properties away from the big cities and, in many cases, on our nice selection of Key West homes for sale. While the tales of mass headlong flight from New York, San Francisco, and other metro areas are over-blown, there is no question that a significant number of folks have decided to pull the trigger on their dreams of an island escape whether it comes in the form of a family relocation, an early retirement, or a second home purchase.
As Key West locals, we here at Bascom Grooms Real Estate can certainly understand the attraction of tropical islands. What’s not to like?

The ambiance blends small town quiet and simplicity with one of the most active and eclectic culture, dining, and nightlife scenes to be found anywhere in America.
People have had plenty of time to island daydream lately. We have spent a lot of time in our homes this year and many folks have re-evaluated what home means and what they want in a home.
