If you take a look at a map of the United States, you will notice a road that crosses through the East Coast called US Route 1. Starting from Key West, located at the southernmost tip of the Florida Keys, it traverses north through the east coast and continues all the way to Fort Kent in Maine, the border town to Canada. In total, the national highway spans 3,864 km.

Today we want to bring your attention to Key West, the starting point of Route 1. Out of the 48 mainland states, Key West is located at the southernmost point in America. Located 260 km away from the largest city in south Florida, a series of 32 bridges also known as the overseas highway connects island to island over a sea of coral reef.

The climate is mild year round and temperatures rarely fall below 20℃ .
As expected, marine activities such as sailing, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving are popular on the island. Named “the nearest America from Cuba” by cultural and artistic figure Ernest Hemingway, a long history of military tension and remnants from the Spanish American war give way to a complex and multifaceted island. Almost everyone who visits is sure to experience a sense of peace and relaxation unique to the island.

Here on Key West is where we found a condominium facing the marina. A 2 bed 2 bath property at 111 sq. meters is listed at $23,000 or 2.55 million yen (as of today). Connected to the Galleon Resort and Marina hotel and built in 1984, the older age of the property does seem to have a considerable effect on the price. However, considering the location, facilities, and size it is safe to say that it is quite a bargain compared to the surrounding properties.
As this property can function as a vacation home or a vacation condominium when you aren’t using it, it has the potential to be profitable year round making it a promising property investment.
