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.

 Seagrove Beach FL –  The Davis Properties Sales Team is  hosting a South Walton community service project over the next several weeks. “Retire Old Glory” U.S. Flag Drive, is geared toward giving SOWAL & 30A locals a convenient means to properly dispose of their old, worn or tattered American flags.

“With Independence Day recently past, we thought that many folks might have purchased new American Flags to display over the Fourth of July holiday.

With our centrally located office in Seagrove Beach, we thought a US flag drive might be a unique & useful way to serve our community.” Commented Larry Davis, Owner/Broker at Davis Properties.

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 are many subtle design elements about Rosemary Beach, FL that make it a distinctive and unique gulf front community.

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.
