Found 5 blog entries for March 2014.
There are many great choices for real estate in Destin and foreclosures are still very popular. In 2010, most sales of condos were either Destin Foreclosures or a Short Sale. Today, things have changed and distressed sales make up a much smaller portion of total activity. A foreclosure is a property owned by the bank and the negotiation process is fairly straight forward.
Our spotlight this week focuses on a Silver Beach Condo, unit 1401. This fantastic 4 bedroom condo has 2000 square foot, is sold unfurnished, and listed at $929,000. As you enter the condo, you will be immediately impressed with the high ceilings, creative lay-out, and crown moldings. The living room floors hare hardwood and the kitchen has corian countertops.

If you live up North, the winter has been LONG. Fortunately, the weather and water are warming in Destin and sunshine is the norm. Spring break, the 2014 edition is well under way. Running from March 7 - April 18 this year, spring break in Destin is longer than normal. If you haven't made reservations yet, there is still plenty of time.
If you find yourself in Destin, there are many great things to do. My favorite 5 are:
1. Go Snorkeling - Park down on Gulfshore drive across from the entrance to O'steen beach. Walk down to the Jetty's and you are at Destin's foremost snorkeling destination. P.S. Don't forget to bring your gear.
2. Rent a Pontoon and spend the day cruising and checking out Destin harborfront condos or hanging out on Crab…

Coastal Dune Lakes
Stunningly beautiful are my first thoughts when asked about our coastal dune lakes. These natural masterpieces are only found, in North America, along the Beaches of South Walton and we are blessed with 15 lakes that have over 26 miles of coastline. This map provides the names and locations of each.
What makes these lakes unique? They share an intermittent connection with the Gulf of Mexico called an outfall. Since the lakes are fed by run-off, rain, and surge, the outfall provides a means for flood control, draining excess water into the Gulf. The outfall also provides a pathway for salt water to enter during high tide. The result is a diverse eco system.
