PRLog - Jan. 18, 2012 - KEY WEST, Fla. - Key West, Florida real estate agent Sean Farrer issued a real estate market report for the area based on recent sold statistics and trends he has observed in the market.

Farrer says that sales in 2012 are already starting off well.

"With our peak season already here, last month saw a total of 48 Key West real estate properties sold. Those were comprised of 25 single family homes, 22 condos, and a commercial property."

He says that contingent and pending transactions for December 2011 totaled 121 transactions, with a total of 438 active listings.

"The number of listings on the market is slightly lower than it would normally be, due to a shortage of inventory in certain price levels of the Key West Real Estate market."

Farrer says that with interest rates remaining below 4% for a fixed 30 year mortgage, the Key West area is seeing more home buyers, with a lot of FHA loans since the 3.5% down makes the down payment more affordable to first time home buyers.

"Many folks from out of town are very surprised at how affordable it is to live in Key West. We have a lot of snow birds come here for their cold season back home because our comfortably warm climate, but a good many of them decide to stay year round once they get used to the relaxed island lifestyle."
