Time Change coming up Mexico Beach Fl

Next Saturday is the time change.   Spring ahead!!!    I'm hoping the weather cooperates and realizes its SPRING!

We are expecting temps in the 70's this week but a few days of rain as well.   I'm just happy for it to be a little warmer!!

Spring breaks have started.   I saw several groups of young people on the beach yesterday!   Amazingly, they were in their bathing suits!    It was NOT bathing suit weather but when at the beach...........................

Mexico Beach is not inundated with spring breakers as Panama City is.   We just don't have enough night life and action around here to satisfy them.    Therefore, when they come to Mexico Beach they just have good fun in the sun since there really is nowhere to get into trouble!!!

We will have lots of families taking spring break together.  We are ALWAYS glad to see them!

Last week was extremely busy in the real estate world!  

Only 3 properties were officially put under contract in Mexico Beach.  Two more were put under contract this morning from negotiations over the weekend,  and there are 4-5 that are still in negotiations this morning!!

Two properties out in the Cape San Blas area were put under contract as well last week. 

Lots of buyers taking advantage of this buyers market!!!

There are deals out there!   Let me know what you are looking for and if its within reason---We'll find it.

I had a call the other day from a guy who wanted a $200,000 house for $78K----not happening!!!

You are going to pay market value---which is ALOT LESS THAN a few years ago, if you are fortunate you may be able to get it for a little less than market value.    

My question is.......what's wrong with paying market value?    No body is going to "flip" properties in this kind of a market.   We are selling to "end users".   Families/couples who are thrilled to be able to afford a property at the beach that they can enjoy for the next 10 years!!!

We are also selling to a few investors who feel that now is the time to buy and know that the market has only UP to go, so they consider it a good time to invest as a long term investment.

This is what real estate is all about!!
