The summer is winding down and families are eagerly squeezing in their end-of-summer beach trips before the school year starts. The beaches are dotted with families enjoying the warm summer sun and breeze-blown sand. Children with their boogey boards squeal as the waves carry them across the water and young tots giggle as they explore the sand with their fingers and toes. The adults enjoy fishing off-shore and shelling in the sands. There is really no place like the Forgotten Coast for making memories.
Many families are choosing this area to be there home, or even their home-away-from-home. The slow pace and breath-taking beauty of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka is a huge draw for families looking to find a place to relax. There have been 33 properties sold in the month of July alone! There were 10 Port St. Joe homes, 9 Port St. Joe properties (vacant lots), 6 Wewahitchka homes, and 8 Wewahitchka properties (vacant lots) sold! 4 of these properties were in a bank owned, short sale, foreclosure, or REO situation, while 15 of the properties were purchased with CASH!
Yes, cash is always welcome in the Real Estate game, but the current rates are favorable for those looking to finance. The current 30-year fixed rate is @ 3.91%, while the 15-year fixed rate is @3.03%!
This adorable Port St. Joe home sits on 0.20 acres and is located very near the downtown area. The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was purchased for only $155,000, a far cry from the $210,000 sale price from 2005! The beach cottage has hardwood floors and lovely wood accent walls throughout the home. Some of the home’s updates include the new roof, new air conditioning unit, and a tankless water heater! The spacious back yard is enclosed by a chain-link fence and would be a wonderful spot for hosting a barbeque.
In the popular Barefoot Cottages community, this quaint 2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom home just sold for an amazing $137,000! The buyer paid CASH, no doubt creating leverage in the $149,900 asking price. This beautiful home comes with access to the many amenities offered to this community. Aside from the close proximity to both beaches and boat landings, this community has 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, playgrounds, grilling areas, and a community center with exercise equipment. The home itself boasts hardwood floors and a screened in porch on the bottom floor. The upstairs master suite opens to a relaxing screened in balcony. This was a great deal in a fantastic community!
This unique Port St. Joe short sale property was recently purchased for only $50,000. The Bay View property has a special zoning code that will allow for a structure with a residence on the second story and a commercial venture on the bottom floor. Located next to the Port St. Joe Marina, this parcel would have great foot traffic for a business and spectacular views for the residents. This same property sold in 2004 for just under $150,000, highlighting the awesomeness of this deal. What an opportunity!
Just South of Wewahitchka, this spectacular family home sold after being on the market for only 8 days. It’s no wonder the home sold quickly, as the 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom home has nearly 2,000 square feet and sits on 2.00 acres of land! The charming country home sold for an incredible $168,200, a steal for this exquisite two story home. With a new roof and HVAC system, as well as a wood-burning fireplace, in-ground pool, and carport, this home is the perfect spot for a family to gather and grow.
This cute “move-in ready” home is situated in a quiet Wewahitchka subdivision. The contemporary home has a split floor plan and is very open and spacious. The quaint home was on the market only 71 days before being purchased for a fantastic price of $97,000! This same home sold for $120,000 in 2005! What a buy! The home has a covered front porch, screened in back porch, and large back yard with a privacy fence. The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is a perfect starter home.
Between Wewahitchka and Mexico Beach is the secluded subdivision of Wettapo Creek. In this gated community, there are two fresh water lakes with docks. The Wettapo Creek which runs through this community provides access by boat to the Intercoastal Waterway that empties into the Gulf of Mexico. Here we find this 1.56 acre homesite recently purchase for $11,000 CASH. The large parcel was on the real estate market for only 7 days, which is not surprising, considering this same lot sold in 2009 for nearly $20,000! With it’s proximity to the Freshwater fishing of Wewahitchka and the Saltwater fishing of Mexico Beach, this homesite is destined to be a fisherman’s dream retreat!
