Tropical Storm Claudette, Mexico Beach Florida

Well, we survived our first tropical storm of the season. And believe me (as opposed to the weather channel) it was not much more than a really good rain storm. We had some pretty good wind gusts, quite a bit of rain, the tide got a little high, and we had some good wave action, but absolutely nothing to get concerned about! Hey, we needed the rain!!!


If that's the worst we get, we are EXTREMELY BLESSED!

On the fishing front: Snapper season is over. We are still trolling for Kings and spanish though. (and to be honest, I'm not sure what else---ask Chip--850-527-6272)


The MBARA King tournament is the last Saturday of this month! It's a great tournament and we are expecting a good turnout!!


Let me know if you have any questions!

I did a little research on gulf front that was interesting!


Gulf front single family homes in Mexico Beach/Cape San Blas have been selling on an average of $256/sq foot this year.


I could only find ONE gulf front single family home that sold in Panama City this year and it sold for $370/sq ft.



Listing prices are another story!!


Mexico Beach to Cape San Blas, gulf front single family homes are listed at an average of $473 sq ft! They are starting at $445,000 for a 1700+ sq foot home on the cape and going over $3 million. There are 60 gulf front homes for sale between Mexico Beach and the Cape.

In Panama City Beach, Gulf front homes are starting at $699,000 for an 826 sq ft fixer upper. Gulf front homes listed at PCB are at an average of $846 sq ft. Holy mackeral!


There are some absolutely fantastically gorgeous homes over there, but along with that comes the zillion other homes, neighborhoods, traffic, high rises....................

Me? I'm stuck on Mexico Beach!

The market has slowed down somewhat. Typical for this time of year as school is starting and folks are concentrating on that! It will pick up again. We usually have another wave of activity in the fall.

I'm looking forward to it!!!!!

Please don't hesitate to call or email me anytime with any questions about the area, whether it pertains to real estate or not.

Also, don't forget, a Realtor can sell you ANY listing in the area, it doesn't have to be just the properties with their sign. So once you contact an agent for information, stick with them----unless you don't feel comfortable with them------They can become your "go-to" person for all kinds of things!
