Happy Memorial Day

Let me just begin by saying "Thank you" to all the men and women who have and are serving in our military. I truly am indebted to all of you. I continually uphold you in prayer and will forever be grateful for your service to this great country!


I hope that all my readers will have a wonderful relaxing long weekend with friends and family. It will be a great weekend to be at the beach!


Memorial Day weekend is really the kick off to the best selling season. This year it surely has proved true---three offers and accepted contracts in just 2 days, and three other offers in place, just not executed yet!! Wow!

We are already doing much better than last year, almost twice as many residential sales as last year already!!!

There are some really good deals out there (although the majority of them are being snapped up this week). We really do have a property out there at just about every price point--------although------------I had a call from a guy who has never been to this area before who wanted waterfront for around 100K---------okay, we don't have that price point!!!!! The same customer wanted a rental property where the income would cover the mortgage. That is also pretty much history! We do have a couple of deals that come pretty close though--if interested let me know!

The majority of the condo projects are about finished. Some are really very nice, with fantastic views! They aren't cheap but -----------------YOU ARE AT THE BEACH!!!

If you are looking for a lot, this is the absolute best time to buy-some wonderful deals out there!

On non-real estate related points---I had dinner at the Bonefish Grill the other night in Panama City. It was absolutely delicious!! I had a melon ball martini (heavenly) with bang bang shrimp as an appetizer (I could have eaten that for the meal) and topped it off with an entree of mahi mahi----cooked to perfection! I highly recommend it!

Movies under the stars will be a highlight for the summer events in the area. Starting soon, this is an inflatable movie screen that they set up in different parks in the area and watch family movies--sort of like "drive-in's"-----------You remember those don't you??????????????

The water and weather have been fabulous. COME TO THE BEACH!

As always, don't hesitate to post a reply or email me directly with any questions or comments!

Have a great weekend!!

Mary
