As we enter this Fall season, we reflect on the beautiful environment ready for our enjoyment on Cape San Blas as we celebrate St. Joseph Peninsula State Park Appreciation Day on September 26. From 10 AM until 6 PM, visitors will enjoy live music, a marine life touch tank, educational booths and displays, a fresh Low Country Boil, and free ice cream for the kids! There is a volunteer shore line clean-up to kick off the event at 10 AM, where visitors and locals alike gather to help keep this beautiful beach pristine for future generations. The wonder and spectacle of Cape San Blas is unlike any other area, with vegetation and wildlife unparalleled throughout the Forgotten Coast. Come enjoy this day of appreciation with us and discover the joys of the Gulf Coast.
There has been an appreciation of the Cape San Blas Real Estate and the Indian Pass Real Estate in the month of August, with 27 properties being sold this month! There were 12 Cape San Blas homes sold, 9 Cape San Blas Vacant Lots sold, 3 Indian Pass homes sold, and 3 Indian Pass Vacant Lots sold! 3 of these properties sold out of a short sale, foreclosure, bank owned, or REO situation. 8 of these properties were purchased with CASH!
Of course, cash is always welcome along the Forgotten Coast, but the recent loan rates are looking favorable for those looking to finance. The current 30 year fixed rate is @ 3.79%, and the current 15 year fixed rate is at an astonishing 2.93%!
This beautiful Cape San Blas home was on the market only 28 days before selling for well below it’s asking price. Although the home was listed at $1,899,000, the buyer paid only $1,150,000 for this 2.20 acre Gulf Front property.
Another stunning Gulf Front home sold in August was this 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom home in Indian Pass. This Treasure Shores beach home has many windows and french doors which let in fabulous beach views and serene sunsets. With covered parking, a whirlpool tub, fireplace, cathedral ceilings in the living area, and a large sundeck with a boardwalk to the beach, this home was a steal for only $547,500! This selling price was over $50,000 less than the listing price of $599,000. What a deal!
Another impressive deal was made on this Cape San Blas home in Surfside Estates. The Gulf View home was in an REO situation, and stayed on the market only 11 days. The asking price was $515,900, but the buyer purchased this property for only $487,500! The 5 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bathroom home was built in 2007 and has many upgraded amenities. The second story master bedroom has a fantastic fireplace, the bottom level has a convenient half bath located near the inground pool, and both the second and third floors have french doors opening to expansive covered porches with fantastic Gulf Views.
This next Gulf Front Cape San Blas home was also an incredible deal. After being on the market a mere 42 days, the beautiful home sold for only $479,900. To put this in perspective, consider that this same home sold in 2004 for $1,100,000! With 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, new appliances, screened porches, and a new A/C unit, this beach home has everything a family needs for a great getaway!
On the Bay Side of Cape San Blas, this wonderful home site just sold in the exclusive Ovation Subdivision. With ammenities that include beach and bay access, pools on both beach and bayside, a community room, a fitness center, tennis courts, and much more, the $225,000 price tag was well worth it. The 0.20 acre Bay Front lot was priced at $259,000, but the CASH buyer purchased this gem after it was on the market only 90 days. Wow!
Indian Pass saw this Gulf View home site sell in August as well. The quarter of an acre property was on the market less than 90 days before being purchased for $28,900. This same property sold in 2013 for $40,000! Deeded beach access, beautiful landscaping, and a community pool accentuate this awesome deal.
