Do You Hear What I Hear? From Silver Bells to Sea Shells and Only 3 Weeks to go Until Ho Ho Ho! Here this week along Florida’s Forgotten Coast, The Weather Outside is Chilly, Trees are All in Light, and Decorations are Everywhere! Oh How the Anticipation Builds this time of year – Right up to Christmas Day, And Like no Place around The Waves Continue to Roll in!

Just as those Waves are Crashing in, Many Buyers are Cashing In! You can Almost Smell the “Air of Change” in this Real Estate Market these days! Last Week There Were 10 Homes and 7 Lots SOLD along Our Stretch of The Forgotten Coast! Mexico Beach and Cape San Blas were the Top Performers with 5 & 7 Properties SOLD Respectively. Great Note Here – Of the Seventeen Transactions – 11 were CASH Deals! Just Another Indication that the Economic Downturn and Market Changes did not Affect Everyone!

Cape San Blas is Known for It’s Beautiful Beaches and just Steps from the Sugar White Sands is one of the Buys of the Week! This Adorable Cottage in Barrier Dunes SOLD for $500,000!!

“5″ Seems to be the Center Hot Spot for Interest Rates as of Late! This Week the 30 Year Fixed is @ 5%, the 15 Year is @ 4.375%, and the 5/1/ ARM is @ 6.25%. These are Just a Bit Up over Last Week, but The Reality is that Interest Rates Remain Hovering in the Record Low Range and are Expected to do So As We Head into the New Year!
