Goodbye to Summer in Mexico Beach, Fl

You can certainly tell summer is over.   We've definitely slowed down over the last couple of weeks.
Less cars parked up and down the beach, less foot traffic at the office.

Of course, this past weekend was the kingfish tournament!    117 boats entered.....not sure how many went out cuz IT WAS ROUGH!!    We weighed in more fish than I anticipated though---so kudos to those who braved the waves long enough to catch some good fish!!!

44lb kingfish won first place, 55lb wahoo, and a little over 5 lb spanish!!!

Thanks to all who came.   I have pictures on my facebook page  Mexico Beach,Fl Real Estate.

It's been a very busy year in real estate!    Of course, its only to be expected with our prices coming down so far and interest rates so low!   Definitely the key ingredients to a buyers market!

Click here for all the residential properties currently under contract in Mexico Beach to St. Joe Beach.  Some of these are short sales and have been under contract for quite a while.  

Click here for all the sales in the month of August.

I'm still getting calls asking for foreclosed homes in the $50K- 100K price range.   While you may be able to get a house in the price range elsewhere in Florida, certainly in other areas nationwide.   Here, in our little area, you just are not going to get that unless its a home that needs A LOT of renovation!   And even those are few and very far between!   

We are so small, with a small inventory of homes for sale, and everything here is within a mile to the beach therefore we can still retain a little value!!!     

Our buyers are mostly 2nd homeowners, a little different than a primary home buyer.

That being said..............if you aren't on my database for emails.........let me know what you are looking for and I'll do my best to help you find it!!!

We have very few foreclosures----the banks are much more willing to do a short sale than to foreclose.  Click here for the foreclosures currently on the market.

I'm looking forward to some cooler temps ahead!    Lots of activities planned for the fall, check out my calendar on my website!

Have a great week!

Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
