2021 Property Values Continue to Climb in Destin & 30A

2021 was an aggressive year for buying and selling real estate in Destin, the 30A and surrounding Florida Gulf Coast. Buyers were faced with high prices, a leaner choice of inventory, and bidding wars. The offers with fewest contingencies and often higher than asking price were often the winners.
