Happy 2012

I can't believe another year has flown by...........I'm not old.........so why is time speeding by so fast.  My mother always told me it gets faster as you get older.......it can't possibly get any faster than what the last few years have sped by!  

But....since I can't slow it down........I'll just continue to try to keep up!!!

I know there are lots of areas in the country that are having very few real estate sales.   The beach is NOT such an area!      We had a great year in 2010, even better in 2011, and it looks as if 2012 is going to be great as well!!!!      We will always have buyers for beach property......when our prices are as low as they are now......we have LOTS OF BUYERS!!!  

Our little area is quite unique..........lots of public beach access, beautiful white sand, uncrowded beaches, every house within a 10-20 minute walk to the beach.....no red lights, no high rises, no tattoo parlors........................just sun, sand, surf and lots of friendly folks!!!      It REALLY CAN'T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!!

Speaking of buyers.........Five properties have been put under contract in the first 10 days of 2012 and one closed so far.   Click on link to see..........Click Here to go view all listings at once.

Our inventory is pretty low..........below are a few of my favorite properties on the market right now, starting from the lowest price point to the highest.....something for everybody.    I'm accounting for negotiating room in these when I say they are my favorites!

My picks............don't hesitate to call/email/text/skype me if you want any more info on any of these properties------or if you want to know why I chose them!!!!!

This kitchen/living area is in an older but renovated home in Mexico Beach.  Foreclosure, listed at $149,900, about 1/2 mile to the beach!    Let me know if you'd like more info.   maryblackburn@mchsi.com

Our weather has been all over the place!!    A few days of cold, a few days of really warm and everything in between!    This is the time of year you dress in layers!!!!

January is typically our coldest month----but....so far its been pretty warm!    I will never complain about walking around in shorts in January!!!

A friend's grandson playing on the beach a couple of days ago!!!

I'm in the process of overhauling my kitchen.....Chip has the time to work on it.........and we've been meaning to do it for the last few years......we finally decided to bite the bullet and get it started!!!
Of course, we are living here while the renovation is taking place.....NO FUN! 
Since I work from home 3-4 days a week......its a LITTLE distracting........so much NOISE and DIRT......it will be worth it...........gotta keep your eye on the prize!!!!!

Again, thanks to all my customers, buyers and sellers alike, who have given me another successful year!!!      There's nothing better than handing the keys over to a new buyer who is sooooo looking forward to many sunny days here at the beach!!!!     The same when it comes to sellers, who have had their time at the beach and are now going to new adventures  (most of them to be closer to kids/grandkids!!!). 

My new year's prayer for my friends, my family, my buyers, sellers, my acquaintences, and even those who do not wish the best to me.........John 3: 1:2....I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers!

Please don't hesitate to call/email/text me anytime.........I pretty much work 24/7/365....holidays, evenings, weekend!!!

Have a great weekend!!
