Real Estate At The Beach

BRRRRRRR! We've had unusually cold weather last week-----okay, I can handle a day or two of chilly weather, I don't complain when I have to cover up my plants for a night once in awhile, But this is lasting tooooo long! It's supposed to be very cold every night this week!

When the high is only in the upper 40's ---its just too cold! However, I know its all relative. I showed property to a woman from Indiana over the weekend and although I thought it was COLD, she was in flip flops!

This morning, I saw two people walking on the beach, obviously from up north! It was in the mid 30's and the wind was really howling. So I guess I shouldn't complain. I've never had to scrape ice off my winshield!

_______________________________________________-

We are all showing quite a bit of property! This is encouraging. Not a lot of contracts but the first step is showing people around. There has been quite a surge of new customers finding out about the area and falling in love!

We've had 3 properties go under contract in January so far, all in Mexico Beach.
  • A beach side newer townhouse--listed at $343k and advertised as a short sale. I believe its going to sell for under $300,000. This townhouse was purchase pre-construction for $395,000 in 2005!
  • A single family home across from dedicated beach, so unobstructed gulf view. Listed at $550,000. I believe the selling price is not too far from the listing price. This will be a great profit for the sellers who are the original owners!
  • A gulf front condo, newer, fully furnished listed at $325,000. I believe this is selling pretty close to the list price as well! This condo was purchased pre-construction for $349,600 in 2006!
There are some negotiations going back and forth for some commercial property but no hard facts yet.
