Sights set on the future...

Our client, who desired to get into the high end rental market, was referred to us by his brother who has also purchased several high end rental properties from us. As a doctor who enjoys visiting Destin, our buyer has his sights set on the future. His long-term plan is to build up his real estate portfolio with the end goal of selling everything and purchasing a Gulf front home to retire in. We helped him put this savvy plan in motion with the purchase of his first vacation rental property!

Our client was kind enough to leave a review for us on Zillow – here's what he had to say: 
" Jay helped me in the purchase of a second home. He was instrumental in the buying process and made everything VERY easy. He walked me through the process step by step. He was able to anticipate hurdles and overcome them without difficulty. Overall, it was a VERY pleasant and PAINLESS experience. I would DEFINITELY recommend him to other potential clients. I will definitely be using his services again in the near future! "

This stunning coastal cottage located in the tropical community of Crescent Beach features both Gulf and lake views, four stories of breezy balconies, and updated design finishes. Natural elements, light-filled spaces, and neutral palettes give this home an effortless coastal charm, flowing throughout each space of the home. With bold granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a large pass-through bar, and plenty of workspace, the u-shaped kitchen is designed for both form and function. Each floor and every bedroom enjoys its own balcony or deck, where you can let the sea breeze wash over you. It takes only a minute to walk to the private beach access with no roads to cross in between. This 4-story home is distinguished by its generous outdoor space and coastal cozy feel. Paradise.




In addition to being only steps away from the beautiful white sand beaches, this locale places you just minutes away from popular beachside restaurants, championship golf and tennis, convenient grocery stores, shopping at Destin Commons & Silver Sands, and family fun at both the Harborwalk along the Destin Harbor and the Village of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin.

2018 First Half | Condo & Home Market Highlights



As a whole, the state of Florida saw $65.9 billion in home and condo sales in the first half of 2018. So where did the Emerald Coast fall in all of that?

As we enter the second half of 2018, the constant narrative is this: lower inventory to choose from along our beaches and coastal communities, which is driving median prices higher in most areas. Even though inventory is lower than this period in 2017, buyers continue to decisively purchase properties, and sellers are able to draw advantages from the demand and decreased competition. 

Overall our area has seen many increases in sales for the first half of the year. Miramar Beach proves to be a favorite of both condo and home buyers seeing an increase in both home sales (+9%) and condo sales (+17%). While Destin proved to be more popular with condo sales (+25%) over home sales (-5%). Sandestin saw the greatest increase in condo sales (+30%) over the slower increase of home sales (+4%). 30A East dipped in both condo sales (-4%) and home sales (-1%). 30A West dipped in condo sales (-4%), but rose sightly in home sales (+6%). Popularly known for Gulf front condos along it's 3 mile strip, Okaloosa Island saw a dip in condo sales (-27%), as well as home sales (-16%).
