"Slices of 30A"

A recent article from the National Association of Realtors stated many of the National "HOT” Markets, such as San Francisco and New York have rebounded from the last recession and prices are back to pre-recession levels. This spurred me to find out how our communities of South Walton compare!

I primarily focus on the Emerald Coast real estate market, particularly the communities of Santa Rosa Beach, Scenic 30A and Southern Walton County. In analyzing these areas, I have compiled historical data using both our local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and statistics from Metro Market Trends, which allows me access to accurate and up-to-date data, including public records.

The beautiful beaches of the scenic 30A region of South Walton County just got a little better.

In a regular meeting on August 9th, the Walton County Board of County Commissioners (WCBCC) gave final approval to the proposed purchase of a section of beachfront land near the community of Seagrove Beach located immediately to the west of Eastern Lake, and includes the Eastern Lake outfall.  The BCC is also currently working to finalize the purchase of adjacent parcels to the east of the recently purchased parcel in the Eastern Lake area.

Eastern Lake is one of fifteen unique Coastal Dune Lakes that are located along the nineteen mile stretch of coastal Scenic Highway 30A on Northwest Florida’s beautiful Emerald Coast. The Coastal Dune lakes along

You’ve just purchased your beach vacation home or condo. Congratulations! What now?30a Vacation Home

It’s an exciting time – your dream has come true. Now, it’s time to set up your rental property and start generating income. Where to begin? It’s a fun process to turn your home into a vacation rental property that welcomes visitors, and even better when those visitors turn in to repeat guests.

Here’s my top ten list of the things I’ve learned from many years of renting my own vacation properties and managing others as well.

1 - Make it personal.

Don’t hesitate to leave family pictures out for guests to enjoy. This reminds them that a family owns the home that they are “borrowing” (renting) and helps ensure they take good care of your property.

2 - Have a

While having a beautiful 30A beach home is something so many of us dream about, not everyone wants to have a full-time, part-time or vacation home directly on Scenic 30A’s pristine beaches. One of the neat things about living or owning property in South Walton is the diversity of locations the area has to offer. While over 40% of the land that makes up southern Walton County is either in State Forest areas, Florida State Parks or preservation areas, there are beautiful locations with wonderful waterfront or wooded surroundings to make almost everyone’s dream place.  And the best thing is, from just about anywhere in South Walton you can still be at the beach in no-time! 

So, if beachside living isn’t “your thing” but you want to be on the water, how

Our family has owned our beach cottage in Seagrove since May of 2002. We have traveled many miles going back and forth through the years, and we've created a lot of memories for family and friends here. When our kids finished college and all moved to different cities, it was finally time to move to the Beaches of South Walton full time. Having a Seagrove Beach home means lots of visits from your kids, so we knew we would still see them a lot.

Making the transition to beach living from Overland Park, Kansas has been very exciting. Everyone loves to talk about how beautiful and special Scenic 30A is - that’s understandable, because it is so true. It's also true that property purchased in one of 30A’s beach communities can be a very good decision

south walton is growing

The Beaches of South Walton have been experiencing a lot of growth and change over the last couple of years. How does that change look?

We’ve put together some stats that are pretty amazing.

South Walton County by the Numbers

More and more people are discovering the 30A area as both a vacation destination and as a highly desirable place to live, work, play, and raise their families. Ten to fifteen years ago, it wasn’t uncommon for businesses to close during the “off season” (traditionally Labor Day to March 1); but now, due to a full line-up of nearly year-round concerts, major events, art fairs and festivals, the “shoulder seasons” are becoming more and more narrow. (Go to Waltonoutdoors and 30A.com for info on upcoming local events.)
