December 3, 2012 - Most Popular Listing of the Week
Posted by Dan Boyle on Monday, December 3rd, 2012 at 2:46pm.
This week's most popular listing on BuyMarco.com is in one of the original beach condos on Marco Island - Sunset House North. Sunset House and its sister to its north were built 1969. The Mackle brothers built Emerald Beach and then moved onto these. In fact, they designated a penthouse in Sunset House for none other than President Richard Nixon. Ultimately, he took one they had built on Key Biscayne instead.
Even though Sunset House is now beyond its 40th birthday, you would never know it by looking at its condition. Like most Marco Island beach condos, these are meticulously maintained from top to bottom. The mature landscaping is stunning and the views are second to none.
The unit that has topped the list this week is a one bedroom / one bath unit that is attractively priced at only $195,000. It has a roomy floor plan and at 750 s.f. makes for a cozy second home on the Island. It was just listed a few days ago and will surely go quickly given the interest shown so far. Currently, there are eight units for sale between the two Sunset condominiums and this is the least expensive of them all. One bedroom range from $195,000 to $249,000 and there are two 3 Bedroom units, both priced at $329,000.
Marco Island beach condos make great investments at their current prices. Typically, they are selling for around the same prices they sold for in 2003. That's back before the real estate bubble even began to inflate. With the stock market uncertainty that exists with the impending fiscal cliff, Marco Island real estate makes for a solid investment option.
