Everyone wants a slice of the Conch Republic. Here, six homes at various price points that can make that real estate dream a reality.

By Lauren Phillips

Once the stomping grounds of Ernest Hemingway, Key West has a wide-ranging list of attractions, from the cheerful debauchery of Duval Street to the natural wonders of Dry Tortugas National Park. The Key Lime Pie is widely acclaimed; the temperature is always warm. Plenty have fallen in love with the pleasures of Key West, but its charming size also means there’s not room for everyone to own a piece of the island.

The real estate here is notoriously pricy, with a median home value of $615,400, more than three times the national median ($196,500). But there are more affordable homes in the mix, if you’ve always dreamed of your own Conch Republic paradise. Here, six homes at various price points that can make your Key West dreams come true.
