FLOOD & WIND INSURANCE: When looking at a condo for sale Key Colony Beach Florida, be sure to inquire about Homeowner’s Association (HOA) dues and verify everything, including flood and wind insurance, that is covered in the monthly or quarterly HOA payment. With a HOA master insurance policy, where condo owners pay a portion of the overall insurance costs (typically included in the dues), homebuyers sometimes find this to be a more cost-effective approach when it comes to insuring property in the Keys. If considering condos in Key Colony Beach, or anywhere in the Florida Keys, remember HOA dues vary greatly from community to community and to inquire about any special assessments.

LOWER TAXES: Key Colony Beach condos for sale are in constant demand due to people relocating for the sun, salt air and lack of a state income tax. The overall property tax rate will vary from county to county in the Sunshine State. One of the considerations when purchasing a Key Colony Beach condo for sale is the property tax.

The Florida constitution limits annual increases in assessed value of property with Homestead Exemption to 3% or the change in CPI, whichever is less. Be aware, a change in property ownership will “reset” the capped value to full market value.

NATURAL SURROUNDINGS: The island chain that comprises the Keys is surrounded by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, which protects 2,900 nautical square miles of the Keys’ water, coral reef, mangroves, and over 6,000 species of marine life. Paired with many communities offering lush tropical landscaping, sparkling pools, sandy beaches and breathtaking seascapes, condos for sale Key Colony Beach FL often feel like a luxury resort. Due to stringent building height restrictions and limited land, boutique size garden style condo buildings are typically what is found in the Keys, which lends itself to a more intimate, tranquil living experience.
