HURRICANE IRMA-- WE ARE KEYS STRONG, WE ARE RESILIENT
The Florida Keys-- and all its citizens -- have been through a lot since our island paradise was hit by Hurricane Irma on September 10, 2017. The strongest and largest storm to make landfall in the Keys in more than half a century, no part of the Keys was spared her Category 4 wrath.
We are forever grateful for the outpouring of help and support the Keys have received and continue to receive nearly two months after Irma. Our physical recovery from Irma is in full swing, but it will take time. As for the real estate market, we've sold a number of newer and/or undamaged homes since Irma in the hardest hit areas, at pre-Irma prices, which suggests that the market, going forward, is much more resilient than in prior storms. We also expect that a vast majority of pending sales awaiting closing prior to Irma will proceed to closing now as well. Refer to the CBSREC Real Estate Report on the Local Links tab for a more in depth look at the market and more.
