  • It’s Been a Busy Month in Real Estate at the Beach

    Well, we’ve officially cruised into the “off season” here in Mexico Beach. I’m not sure where the year went but…its been fast and furious!!!

    It’s been a month since I posted an update on the real estate activity!

    In Mexico Beach we’ve closed on 22 properties in Mexico Beach to Windmark Beach, 4 lots and 18 residences! That’s a busy month!!!!

    Twelve more properties were put under contract as well in the last 30 days!!! Out on the Cape, they’ve been busy as well, closing 17 properties…9 lots and 8 residences!

    Lots are still the big seller at the Cape…Nine additional lots were put under contract and 6 residences, as well.

    Port St. Joe closed on 3 homes and 1 lot in the same time frame.

    So, while it typically slows down this time of year while families are getting back to school….IT HASN’T THIS YEAR!!!!

    With interest rates so low and our inventory dwindling and people knowing we are at the bottom of the market …..property is flying off the shelves!!!!!

    I’ve never been worried about not having enough property to sell before but seriously….I am a little worried about that now!!!

    Mexico Beach hosts a free little concert on the beach every Thursday in September. Bring your chair or blanket, some snacks and a beverage, and listen to some music while watching the sunset! Music starts at 6:00 cst at Sunset Park, the pavillion next to El Governor.

    The next big event at the beach is the Art and Wine Festival. A great show of local artists, wine and food, a silent and live auction and you can’t get better scenery since its right on the beach!!!!
