Lots of incentives to buy now: low interest rates, tax credits, reduced prices................ Don't forget the repeat buyer tax credit of $6500. You must be buying a primary home though, but there are a lot of folks who just needed a little incentive to downsize, or upgrade, or move to the surf, sun, and sand!!! Let me know if you'd like more information. The tax credits are only good through April!
_______________________________________________________ The cold weather certainly took a toll on the sea turtles. Check out the link below and the picture as well. I heard the final number was around 1600 sea turtles that they picked up stunned by the cold in St. Joe Bay. Thanks to all the locals who braved the cold to save these turtles!! http://www.starfl.com/news/lin-19988-count-stunned.html ____________________________________________________ Get ready for the Gumbo Contest in February! They are adding Brunswick stew as a category and I love Brunswick stew!!
If you want to enter, send me an email and I'll send you the entry form! Always a good reason to spend a weekend here at the beach!!
