The temperatures were soaring last week here on Florida’s Forgotten Coast, along with real estate sales! As the weather gets warmer we natives of the Gulf Coast take refuge in the cool emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. And now that Snapper Season is open a lot more of us are branching out to further into the gulf. Just like those new property owners are branching out into our part coastline. Come spend some quality time with us and see why it’s better on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
The property sales, like the temperatures here in the Forgotten Coast Real Estate Market were sizzling mostly due to a huge lot sale out at the Ashwood Development. 43 Properties SOLD! from St. George Island to Mexico Beach and even up to Wewahitchka– 1 East Point property (vacant lot), 1 Carrabelle Property (vacant lot), 2 St. George Island Beach Homes, 2 Apalachicola Home and 1 Property (vacant lot), 1 Cape San Blas Beach Home and 24 Properties (vacant lots), 1 Port St. Joe Homes and 2 properties (vacant lots), 5 Mexico Beach Homes, and 3 Wewahitchka Properties (vacant lots).
