The freshest seafood comes ashore daily at the Apalachicola Marina, so come on over and discover this Forgotten Coast treasure for yourself and enjoy its bounty!

The Apalachicola Real Estate Market is as hot right now as the Florida summer sun! Between Apalachicola and St. George Island, there were 22 properties sold during the month of May and 24 properties sold in June! It seems that as the temperatures rise, so do the sales! In May, 4 of the sales were the result of a Bank Owned, Short Sale, Foreclosure, or REO situation, while 12 of the sales were CASH purchases! In June, 2 of the sales were the result of a Bank Owned, Short Sale, Foreclosure, or REO situation, while 7 of the sales were CASH purchases!

Of course cash can be a great bargaining tool in the Apalachicola Real Estate Market, but the loan rates are quite enticing for those looking to finance, as the current 30-year fixed rate is @4.25%, and the current 15-year fixed rate is @ 3.25%!

One of the most exciting sales of the time was made on this 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Apalachicola Foreclosure! This Creek Front home sold due to an REO situation for more than $15,000 less than the asking price! For the amazing price of $260,000, the new owners are settling in at the sprawling home which sits on 1.80 Acres! The home offers many luxurious features, such as the large outdoor patio area with the in-ground pool, a small dock on the creek, a serene pond on the property, a 2-car detached garage with storage in addition to a 2-car attached garage! And those are just the outdoor features! Inside the home, granite countertops add sophistication to the spacious kitchen, and the master bedroom has a walk-in closet to please the most stylish of women. What a find!

One of the appeals of Apalachicola is it’s setting as a quaint vacation town and for those who intend to make this area their escape, homes like this 2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom cottage are the perfect getaway! This adorable beach bungalow was on the market only 24 days before a CASH buyer came and purchased this home for only $126,000! This was a truly fantastic deal, considering the same property sold for $169,500 in 2005! The open floor plan and Pecky Cypress paneling create a cozy and intimate space for this retreat only blocks from the Apalachicola Bay.
