With all of the rain I have a big mud puddle in my back yard,does that count as waterfront?

I looked at those lots up in Crystal River on the,I do not know how to spell it but the river that starts with a W.

Nice big lots on deep water river but they had HOA restrictions.I think the lots were 200 by 700?

Fla land sales bought out a old golf course on the lakes by Orlando and is doing 2.5 acres for 100 and change.

All raw land though.

Doubt those building restrictions will stay in place. I’ve heard that song before.

Amen ! I'm in construction and try and do quality work but when you bring in illegals the build quality is not there and the builders don't care . I fight it on a daily basis and when the new homeowners complain they just paid over a million dollars for a glorified track home what am I suppose to do.they get pissed.

Or buyers that pinch pennies. A good home costs money to build but everyone wants cheap to save money. I am sure those south florida builders would love to build beautiful homes. The homeowner just won't pay to get them built so they also cut corners.

I'd be curious what the average KEYS ownership period is. I know in coastal TX they seem to change hands on the reg..

I've seen a newly built home with 6 x 8's holding the roof up, and for 3 out of 12 of them they were too short and don't make it all the way to the end of the roof!! couldn't believe it. That isn't being cheap, that's just bad form!

Our house in Orlando sold for more than any other comp in the middle of COVID-19 lockdown. I think some of the prices are based on so few sellers wanting to show their homes until this dies down and that's causing a severe lack of inventory.

Your comment was right on, until the last sentence, it is very ignorant to say all "South Florida" workers are substandard and do not take pride in their work. There are plenty of good proud workers down here. Like in any part of the world you have your good and you have your bad. Like in any race, ethnic group, etc. you have your good and you have your bad. So STOP grouping people into your imaginary groups, it makes YOU look ignorant and uneducated.

So where are the county/city inspectors, it is their job to verify these houses are been build to standards.

It be interesting to buy one of these properties, then have them properly inspected and sue the city/county for any code violation they approved when it was been build. I wonder if this is even possible.

Sadly in my area atleast you can’t sue the municipality for doing a poor inspection and approving something that is a code violation. The inspection process is more about revenue generation than actual code enforcement atleast in residential. In commercial construction I do think there is more scrutiny on code compliance. Please don’t assume that a home that has a certificate of occupancy has met code or is a quality home.

I hear you, that is crazy and is the root of the problem. Your typical home owners have no idea about construction or codes.

Like everything, there must be checks and balances, otherwise some one will take advantage and rip someone else off. Assuming people will do the right thing all the time, is just not a good idea. Most people, if left alone, at some point will push the envelop, and once they do and get away with it that becomes the new standard. This happened in S. FL. with construction before Hurricane Andrew, code enforcement was no where to be found, it seems we are back to the same.

Fair comment. Just haven't run into many here who do have pride. My mistake. Apologies to everyone for the comment.

Wow, the ignorance regarding South FL construction on this thread is amazing! But hey, all are entitled to their own opinions whether educated or not

glad to see the keys real estate market is doing well, im renting a house in Islamorada mid-july and can't wait to get down there. Keys are one of my favorite places to be at, especially with the boat in the backyard

Where are you guys seeing the highest priced real estate sell lately in Fl Keys?
