I look at several Destin foreclosures each week but this one really caught my attention. When I pulled up to the home, my first impression was that the house was overpriced. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I took a look around.

While many Destin foreclosures require considerable repairs, the interior of this home was immaculate and the layout was fantastic for a vacation rental, 2nd home, or a weekend get away. The home has six bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, three large decks (including the observation tower), a swimming pool and is located less than 200 yards to the beach.

Unlike most foreclosures in Destin, this one is completely furnished. The only thing that needs fixed is the swimming pool. It is dirty and hasn't been used in quite sometime.…
