Real estate sales along the Emerald Coast, including Destin and 30A Highway has been especially active this year. From January until the end of May 2017 we've seen steady increases resulting in higher sales, compared to the same period in 2016.

Here are the stats for Single-Family Homes, Condos and Townhomes:

Emerald Coast Single-Family Homes

The Emerald Coast single-family home market saw an increase of just 7% overall. Homeowners seemed content to remain where they were, as there was far less inventory then in 2016. Whatever went on the market has been selling quickly for an average of 97% of the asking price.

The Freeport single-family home market saw a huge 52% increase this year. Other top selling areas include 30A East (23%) and Destin (+12%).
