Island buys are always at a premium with few on the market and others that might consider selling for the right price.
Here is the real catch: Of the 1700 islands only 9 have houses on them so owning an island with a home will carry a premium. Unless permit already exist it's not likely a structure can be built on an island without a house due to conservation issues.
True offshore islands in the Florida Keys are exposed ancient coral reefs. These fossilized foundations are unique as they rise above surrounding water and provide a habitat for fish and other sea life. Some are grouped together while others offer open ocean or open gulf views. Some islands offer sandy beaches but are usually man made due to the coral reefs that surround the islands.
There are 1700 islands in the Florida Keys.
