Just Sold | Calypso Resort | Unit E2304 | Panama City Beach, FL

2 Bedroom  |  2 Bath  |  1,223 Square Feet  | Selling Price: $418,000

A great way to close out last week – we're thrilled to say we had both sides of the sale of this beachfront penthouse unit in Calypso Resort in Panama City Beach!

Our seller, a prominent doctor in Knoxville, had purchased this unit in pre-construction in 2006. Prior to listing we did some staging: decluttering, fresh paint throughout, modern low-nap carpeting in bedrooms, and wood-look porcelain plank tile in all other areas. 

We also had the buyers from Texas who decided it was time to trade in their business attire for beachwear. With this unit as their second home, we know they'll enjoy the panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico from their expansive balcony and the amenities offered at Calypso

Nestled on the edge of paradise you’ll find Calypso – a Gulf front beach resort featuring panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. This penthouse unit boasts an open floor plan with views of the beach from the living, dining and kitchen areas. Glass sliders lead you to the spacious balcony accessed from both the living area and master suite. The generous master suite includes a walk in closet and private bath. With a guest suite and bunk room this unit comfortably sleeps eight. Calypso has everything needed for the perfect beach experience, making this a fantastic investment opportunity. Paradise! 

Check out the various marketing methods that we used to create a cohesive brand for this great unit.

Email flyer sent to our database of investors, as well as an agent version for maximum exposure.  

Facebook post featuring a video tour of the property. We also post to YouTube, Google+, and Pinterest. We also featured the property in a blog post, as well as our monthly newsletter.

Professional photos highlight each spectacular feature of the property. 

We featured Calypso Resort amenities including: two Gulf front pools, tiki-bar, fitness room, parking garage with walk-over, and within walking distance of Pier Park and all the activities of Panama City Beach. Paradise!

3 Bedroom  |  2 Bath  |  1,254 Square Feet  | Selling Price: $147,000

Our buyer from Illinois decided to start off his retirement right by escaping the cold and moving to the warmth of Destin! He couldn't have chosen a better time with the start of Spring bringing in the most gorgeous weather, and an even better deal with this unit at Indian Lake!

February 2018 Market Highlights

We had a great start to this year, and rolling right through winter into spring we continue to stay busy with both buyers and sellers. Our area never ceases to provide a favorite place for young and old, all year round. Destin and the surrounding areas are an especially wonderful place to spend spring and summer with family. For many who own here, it's proven to be a smart and satisfying move to purchase an investment property or second home here. We're looking forward to what spring will bring!     

Our team had an active share in the February market. We assisted our wonderful buyers in the sale of the following property:

El Matador | Unit 437

We also worked with sellers to get this property on the market:

One Water Place | Unit 309 

In addition, we were able to get several more properties under contract. We'll have all the details in the March Market Report.

The activity this year has been exciting and we're hustling our way right into the ever popular spring season. We love staying in touch to keep both our buyers and sellers prepared for the rest of the year, and beyond. This is a great time to perform some due diligence regarding purchasing property. Spring will be in full swing before you know it – and keeping on top of the market will ensure that you don't miss any deals. We are getting a new influx of inventory daily and there are some great opportunities out there right now.
