On Casey Key, a $3.55 million land sale


Gulf to BayTwo Casey Key lots totalling about 2.5 acres sold Monday for $3,550,000.
The properties had been on and off the market since 2005.
The seller, Tom Schlachter, was represented by Tony DiCerbo of Michael Saunders & Co. The buyer, a dentist/plastic surgeon, and his wife, from Indiana, were represented by Michael Moulton, also of Saunders.
The Gulf-to-bay tract, which could be developed with large houses on either side of the road, was first listed by Schlachter in 2005 at $6.9 million.
The most recent list price was $3.99 million, a reduction of $500,000, said DiCerbo. Schlachter paid $4.1 million for the land in January 2004 and tore down an old house on it.

"I think the buyer got a very good piece of gulf to bay land at a very good price," said Saunders agent Deborah Beacham, a 20-year resident of Casey Key.
