Happy April from the Beach!

Wow, what a gorgeous Resurrection Weekend we had at the beach!    The weather could not have been more beautiful!!

It was a little chilly and foggy for the Sunrise Easter Service held every year right on the beach by First Baptist Church in Mexico Beach.  However, there was a great crowd that brought beach chairs and blankets to listen to the preacher declare He has risen!!!

Lots of people at the beach over the weekend---sunbathing, swimming, fishing, sailing-----it was great!

As I had a little bit of a chance to ride my bike around, it was also great to see lots of people working in their yards, cutting back all the dead stuff and planting flowers!!    I love this time of year!!!


I'll begin the weekly fishing report today!!!   Chip's had several charters in the last couple weeks, unfortunately, its pretty much been catch and release of the ever abundant (yet government reported endangered) Snapper!!!       Snapper season doesn't begin this year until June, reportedly because there has been overfishing of this species and we must protect them----however, you can't catch anything else except snapper there are so many of them!!!!
Doesn't make any sense to me!!!

The spanish mackeral are starting to show up and there have been 1-2 reports of cobia sightings!!

I'll keep you updated as his calendar is filling up for the weekends. 

Chip has updated his website, check it out:

As I am 2 days late in posting this today and I'm running out of time again today, I'm just posting links to the properties that were put under contract in the last week as well as solds.   See links below.

I did want to point out a couple of interesting properties though.

A bank owned house right on Hwy 98, listed at $499,999 went under contract in less than a week.  Newer home, 2700 sq feet.  a little bit of an odd layout but beautiful finishes, with gulf view.    It all boils down to Pricing, Condition, Location!!!!     Good price, great condition, gulf view---this property had it all and under contract in less than a week.

Another property went under contract this past week:  4 vacant lots on Hwy 98 zoned commercial.  It is a short sale.  Listed at $636,000, at $159,000 a lot for commercial property--that is a deal and they may get it for less than that!
What is the most interesting thing is that commercial property has been selling in this down market!!!    Several businesses have changed hands in Mexico Beach, a commercial property at the Markets of Mexico Beach is under contract and now this vacant piece of commercial land.

I think this is the time to buy and open businesses here----the people that are buying properties now are end users--they are buying it to use.  They are the ones who come every weekend bringing family and friends.   I anticipate a great spring and summer for the businesses here at the beach!!!

If you are interested in starting a business here, let me know and I'll send you some great information---not only about buying but leasing commercial property!

Mexico Beach to St. Joe Beach:  Properties under contract in the last week.  Properties Sold in the last week.

Cape San Blas:  Properties under contract in the last week.   Properties sold in the last week.


Have a great week!!!   Please let me know if I can be of any service to you!!!
