Hope you are enjoying the Holidays! It has been stunning lately on the Emerald Coast. Today it was 67 and sunny, which as been the typical over the past month. We wanted to let you know about the new E-Concierge feature on our website. We are natives to NW Florida and have hand selected our favorite places along the Emerald Coast featuring restaurants, attractions, vendors, upcoming entertainment, list of events, live music and more. All you have to do is click on the E-Concierge tab on the top of the Nathan Abbott Team website and you will find links giving you direct access to our selected attractions. This is an ongoing project and we will continually add new links as we see fit. Hopefully this will be a great source of information for you to enjoy while visiting Destin, PCB, and our surrounding areas. Let us know when you plan on visiting and we can get you adiscount on your vacation stay!

We had an extremely busy 2011 with encouraging signs of improvement. The national media has really worked in our favor this year. National Geographic ranked NW Florida as the #1 place in the world for best Fall travel destination, Boating Magazine ranked us as the #1 place in the country to live and boat, Yahoo and Google rated us in the top 5 projected areas in the country for appreciation by 2014, and the list goes on! The sales absorption rate is elevated over previous years and we experienced the busiest rental season we have seen in over six years. The market is still very price driven, but in a lot of cases, we are starting to see appreciation! The appraisers are even starting to document that our market is stable which is a nice change. We are very optimistic that 2012 is going to be a great year and you can feel the energy in the air.

If the Nathan Abbott Team can ever be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We specialize in all facets of real estate and are happy to help. Thank you for your business as it is very much appreciated! We hope you have a blessed Holiday Season, a Happy New Year, and we look forward to seeing you on the beautiful Emerald Coast in 2012!
