It’s Farmer’s Market Season! Our local growers and craftsmen come in full force with the best this area has to offer. Tupelo honey, locally-grown produce, hand-made jars of spicy chow-chow; these are just a few of the goodies available every other week at the SaltAir Farmers’ Market. Displays of handmade pottery, jewelry, and woodwork astound the eye. Held on the first and third Saturday of every month at the Port St. Joe City Commons Park, Right across from our g3 Realty Group Office!, the SaltAir Farmers’ Market is a wonderful place to pick up groceries, find unique gifts, and meet the locals.
March was an exciting month for the Port St. Joe Real Estate Market and the Wewahitchka Real Estate Market, with 23 total properties sold! There were 15 Port St. Joe homes, 1 Port St. Joe property (vacant lot), 3 Wewahitchka homes, and 4 Wewahitchka properties (vacant lots) SOLD in March! One of these properties was a REO home, while 10 of these properties were purchased with CASH!
Yes, cash is always an attractive tool in the Forgotten Coast Real Estate Market, but for those who intend to utilize a more traditional loan system, the rates are in your favor! Currently, the 30-year fixed is @ 3.875, and the 15-year fixed is @ 3.125%!
In this Port St. Joe home sale, CASH was used to pull off an incredible deal. This gorgeous 4 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom home sold for only $700,000. This was nearly $200,000 less than the asking price! To put the gravity of this deal in perspective, consider that this same home sold in 2004 for $1,900,000! Unbelievable! The Bay Front home offers more than 5,000 square feet of living space on 1.7 acres with 265 feet fronting the St. Joseph Bay. Marble floors, a floating spiral staircase in the foyer, intricate woodwork, executive chef’s kitchen, in-ground pool, 3-car garage, and mother-in-law suite are only a few of the selling points of this fabulous property.
Just down the road is another fabulous Bay View Port St. Joe home which sold in March. This 4 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom Hacienda was purchased with CASH for only $260,000! Cash was a key player in this deal, as the property was listed for $80,000 more at $340,000. What made this deal even more astonishing was the price tag when it sold in 2006: $550,000! It is hard to believe such a bargain was made on such a fantastic home! Located on one of the most desirable streets in Port St. Joe, this home is directly across the street from the beautiful Constitution Park and is privy to some of the best sunset views in the area, with the upstairs Master Bedroom’s alcove porch. With over 2,800 square feet of living space and two fireplaces, this home was a great find.
Only one block off of the water, this lovely brick-built family home recently sold for only $219,000! This well-planned home has wonderful flow leading from the spacious living room with cozy fireplace, through the large kitchen with ample storage and countertop space, to the open and comfortable fully-enclosed Florida room overlooking the back yard. The custom built in hot tub of the Florida room is an inviting space that beckons relaxation. This is a wonderful home for this price, especially when you consider this same home sold for $400,000 in 2005!
For those looking to build their own dream homes, this lot sale will be encouraging. The .25 acre lot just sold in Port St. Joe’s premier Heron Walk subdivision for only $17,500! The same lot sold in 2013 for $26,500! This cul-de-sac lot is convienently located near the Sacred Heart Hospital and the Gulf Coast State College Port St. Joe Campus. The Heron Walk subdivision is well maintained and offers a private community pool with a club house.
To the North of Wewahitchka, this wildlife laden vacant lot just sold for an incredible price. The 10 acre property sold for only $48,000 CASH! The entire ten acres has been fenced in and the property has it’s own pond! Some vegetation has been cleared, providing plenty of room for a home site, but much of the property still has wooded areas which foster opportunities to encounter wildlife.
Perhaps you’re looking for your own country getaway? Consider this fantastic log cabin home. Sitting on 3.35 acres, the 2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom home offers an open floor plan, large eat-in kitchen, and open loft which could easily be converted into a third bedroom.
