Destin Golf Course HomeSales numbers for the first quarter of 2014 for all Destin Real Estate are in.  Destin is an upscale beach community in Northwest Florida, also known as the Emerald Coast, that is very popular with tourists and those looking to enjoy resort lving.  The original settlers in the area took advantage of the abundant fishery located off the Destin coast and made their living by fishing.  Gradually, the white sandy beaches and turquoise waters attracted pleasure seekers looking to relax and take in the scenery. In the early 1970's the area had become so popular that a local developer built the first high rise condo in Destin. Today, real estate in Destin is complex and includes transactions involving homes, condos, and lots.

Destin Harborfront Condos   The sun glistens over the tranquil waters of the Destin harbor as the fishing fleet returns from a full day on the water.  The docks are crowded with onlookers trying to catch a glimpse of the days catch but the smiles of the anglers leave little to the imagination. As the deckhands display the snapper, amberjack, and grouper, on the weathered wood benches; a few lucky people are thinking “I’m glad we own a Destin Harborfront Condo”.   The Destin Harbor Boardwalk, finished in 2012, is approximately a quarter of mile long and runs alongside many fine restaurants and retail stores. If you are looking to have the fish of your choice grilled, fried, or blackened, the Destin Harbor is the place to be.    Destin Harborfront Condos are most…

Silver Beach Towers Condos

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.

Destin HarborIf 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
