I just came back from a week in Texas and the weather today was not very welcoming. Cold and rainy!
I do believe its supposed to be sunny but cool for the Apalachicola Seafood Festival this weekend!!!
There's actually been a lot of real estate activity for this time of year. Ten properties went under contract in the last couple of weeks. Residential properties under contract recently. Vacant lots under contract recently. Several offers being negotiated as we speak!
I've talked to several Realtors in different areas in the last few weeks and they were pretty surprised we've been so busy here! We are an unusual market though---our market is mostly 2nd home buyers. There will always be buyers for beach property! Second home buyers typically have a little more dispensable income and are therefore able to take advantage of the lower prices and low interest rates.
The "foreclosure freeze" has affected very few properties in the immediate area. In fact, I know of only one in St. Joe Beach in which the closing has been delayed with no closing date.
Just a quick blog today----coming back from vacation has put me a little behind, so I have to play catch up today!
Please don't hesitate to call or email me anytime if you are just starting to look or have been for awhile and are now getting serious!!!
I look forward to talking with you!
