It’s a beautiful day on the Emerald Coast and today I want to share some numbers with you. We’re going to look at the numbers from 2016 and 2017 to determine where we’re headed in our market.

We experienced great appreciation all across our market from 2016 to 2017. In Destin, the condo and townhome market went up 11% on average, while home prices were up around 5%.

In Miramar Beach, we had a 5% increase in condo and townhome sales and a 10% increase in price per square foot for residential homes.

North Santa Rosa Beach is where I live, and it’s one of the best areas for residential living. You can avoid most of the traffic year-round, and you’re close to lots of stores, dining, and other amenities. We have some beautiful bayou and bayfront properties in this area.

Another great reason to love North Santa Rosa Beach is the we had a 25% increase in our average price in homes from 2016 to 2017. That’s a phenomenal level of appreciation. The overall sales volume is up just 4%, but the increase in price is fantastic.

Over in 30A West, there was a 15% increase in single-family homes sold, and they sold for an average of 17% higher. People are starting to realize how awesome this area is. The condo market here went down a little bit, but I think that’s mainly due to lack of inventory. There simply isn’t much available.
