While there are many great homes on 30A, WaterColor Real Estate is arguably the most highly sought after. Demand for lots, homes, and condos all remained strong in 2013. Natural beauty from coastal dune lakes, state forests, and the beaches of South Walton, surround WaterColor on all sides. Who wouldn't want to own a slice of this paradise.
Homes sales in WaterColor increased for the third concecutive year. As expected, the average days on market for new listings decreased by 25%. In other words, if you see something you like, dont wait. The higher priced luxury homes in WaterColor definitely made a comeback with the most expensive home selling for $4,550,000.

WaterColor condo sales dropped off in 2013 with only 8 units changing hands.The lowest closed sales price was $510,000 which was signifcantly higher than the $350,000 unit that sold the previous year. The median sales price also increased to $627,625. I would expect condo sales to improve as home prices increase.
