Are We Just Feeling Busy Or is the Market in an Up-Swing?

Last week we took a look at how the 30A real estate market is doing with Single Family Home activity. This week we dive into to the 30A Condo market and again want to see if data and numbers reflect if how we are feeling about the market matches what is actually happening.    

Here is what we found for condo activity the week of August 17th – 24th in South Walton Florida!

As we did last week and more importantly to provide a more accurate picture into what is happening here at the beach with Condo sales, we reviewed Year-to- Date activity VS 2019 Year-to-Date activity.

An Insider’s Peek Into The Current 30A Real Estate Market

We know it feels busy in our market right now with a definite increase in buyer interest and more home showings,  But simply “feeling” busy does not give us a true picture of the reality of our real estate market along 30A.

We only looked at Single Family homes, located along 30A’s Scenic Highway + Watersound Origins and here is a glimpse into what took place in the local market during the week of August 12th – 18tr in South Walton Florida!

We are in the “dog days of summer” when things usually begin to slow down here at the beach. Visitors and families are traditionally returning to their homes to gear up for a new school year. Typically! But we all know – 2020 has been anything but typical! The same has been true of property interest all along South Walton and for our 30A communities in particular. What is traditionally a slowing market this time of year is anything but typical.  As a matter of fact, preliminary indicators are pointing toward a record sales year for many neighborhoods and communities here. 

The 2020 Spring and Summer seasons  have been some of the busiest for the South Walton real estate market activity that we have seen in many years. What is the cause for this spike

We often tell our sellers – “When friends and family visit; they see YOUR home. But when a buyer visits; they should see THEIR home.” Selling can not only be stressful; it’s also a highly personal experience. One of the best things you can do as a seller, is to step back and take a long, hard look at your home through “buyer eyes”. Then implement strategies to ensure you minimize distractions and make it easier for the buyer to envision making your home theirs!

Here along the Gulf Coast of Northwest Florida & Scenic 30A, our sales team work with sellers everyday offering ideas and advice on what they can do to maximize the impact of showing their home while it’s on the market.

You might be asking yourself, “Why spend money on a vacation house every year when we could have our very own “Slice of 30A”?

While owning a home at the beach is appealing to many, we advise our clients to plan for and consider the implications of beach property ownership as the first step in their search and purchase process. Finding the right home along the beaches of South Walton and Scenic 30A Florida depends on a lot of factors including; the home style you want; if all the related homeowner costs fit your bigger financial plan; use of the property as a second home, or vacation rental. 

To help determine if owning a South Walton Beach Home is right for you, we’ve compiled a list of 5 questions as a starting point.

There’s a saying that I’m sure you’ve heard before: "You only get one chance to make a first impression.".  Successful homeowners who prepare their property to sell using this adage will typically find that they have greater success in getting to the closing table over those who didn’t prepared in advance.   Why is that? It’s a simple matter of taking time to get ready to make a good first impression. Another advantage to putting “your best foot forward” by preparing your home for the market goes a long way toward helping to insure the selling process goes more smoothly for both yourself AND your buyer.  

I like to work with my sellers to help them see their home “through the eyes of the buyers” during the pre-market period. The next step is to
