What is Unique about Palm Cay?

Affordability is the most unique feature of Palm Cay as home prices start as low as $40,000. The community was developed in the mid 80's so naturally you can expect the community does show some signs of age, however for those looking for an affordable place to live this community is ideal. The community backs to I-200 where a Walmart Supercenter can be found just outside the community as well as several other retail establishments.

Industry Expert Review

While the community offers home at very affordable prices, buyers should consider that older homes will come with more maintenance. Homes built in the 80's tend to be less energy efficient when compared to today's newer homes.  Also homes built in the 1980's tend to be less open in design. Overall these homes are a great value and the extra potential maintenance should not steer you away but you should consider this in your purchase decisi
