    mexico-beach-real-estate-sandcastle-2012We finally got a little rain this weekend! I had quite a few emails from concerned family members and customers about the “flooding” in the area…….While the national weather maps/reports sort of link all of the panhandle area together….Mexico Beach DID NOT get the amount of rain that Pensacola did! We got quite a bit of rain last Friday and Saturday but only a few minutes of good rain Sunday. We certainly needed it! So…no flooding here!!!

    As one of my customers responded when I told her…..”You DO live in Paradise!!!!”

    Update on Snapper fishing!! The season is only 40 days and unfortunately the weather has taken about 5-7 of those days!!!! Chip only has a few days left so if you are interested in catching some HUGE snapper in the next few weeks…..give him a call. www.charterboat-missmary.com 850-527-6272.

    I’ve got a girl’s fishing trip planned for the 20th!!! Will post pictures!!!

    As for real estate! Fourteen residential properties have been put under contract since my last blog on Memorial Day. Seven in Mexico Beach, 2 in Port St. Joe and 5 on the Cape/Indian Pass.

    Click here to see what people are buying!!!!

    Click here to see the closings for the last few weeks! Out of 11 closings…8 were in Mexico Beach, 1 in Wewahitchka, and 2 out on the Cape!!!

    The big real estate news was the developer release of an entire subdivision of lots out on the cape!

    THIRTY VACANT LOTS out on the Cape sold in the last couple of weeks!!!!

    Click here to see!!! I’ve got to assume some of these were bought by investors who will hang on to them…..several sold to builder/investors who will build homes just to sell, and a few to people who have taken advantage of the market to buy a cheap lot and will build their dream vacation home!!!

    No matter who bought what……its obvious A LOT of people think this is a great opportunity to buy!!!!

    With interest rates still below 4%, low inventory, lots of buyers…..and this……………right outside your door………..

    If you or a friend/family member are interested in buying….please go ahead and contact me now so I can start sending you properties!!!! If you require financing….might be a good idea to talk to a banker now just to get a good idea of what you can afford. If you are requiring financing….condos are probably not going to work for you….lenders just don’t want to lend on a condo. Townhouses, single family homes are no problem!

    If you have cash…..cash is king…..but be ready to act quickly because properties put on the market at good prices are going fast!

    If you know anyone who is considering selling a property around here…….PLEASE have them contact me ASAP as we really need more properties to sell!!! Just have to price it right!!!!

    Don’t forget the biggest holiday for our area is coming up the 4TH OF JULY!!! If you plan on coming that week/weekend………..You better make arrangements now as the beach will fill up quickly!!!

    Have a great week!

    And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God! Micah 6:8
