Live 30A Real Estate Blog

One question we've all asked ourselves at some point in 2020 is:  "How can I make the most of this new #socialdistanced world I live in?" Much of the world is facing new and uncharted difficulties within their daily home & work routines. Masking up, avoiding hugs, postponing travel, and adjusting as much as possible to all the latest rules and recommendations takes intention and energy. One thing we could all use more of regardless is intentional time outdoors in stillness and solitude, breathing in the fresh air.  Many have taken the path of least resistance this year...

Let your mind wander off to that favorite place of yours you had as a kid. The place you felt you could really be yourself. The place you felt safest and most at home. The place you could come to life exploring. The place where the world seemed to slow down and life was simple. When you think of THIS place you find your mind carried away with wonder and all of the sudden a few minutes have passed. When you think of THIS place, your memories seem to play as a slow motion reel on an old projector screen. Where is THIS place for you? 

For many, THAT place is Seaside, Florida, a favorite thriving coastal community not far west of Panama City Beach.

On 30A, most of the "action" happens on the "east end" of 30A, that is -- Watercolor, Seaside, Seagrove, Watersound, Seacrest, Alys Beach, Seacrest Beach, Rosemary Beach, and Inlet Beach. That's where you'll find the "Planned Urban Developments" and "Town Centers" - where the cute shops, HOA's, and aesthetically clean lines, and homes all compliment one another in the community. It's also where you'll have a little smaller lots, and higher density - and well thought out amenities, etc.

On the "West End" of 30A - this is where you'll find the surfer vibes and the locals hanging a little more loose. You'll find a little slower pace, a little larger yards (sometimes), and an eclectic mix of homes, styles, and people --

The 30A Real Estate Market Is Very HOT. It's True.

Two days ago I listed a home for sale in Grayton Beach just before lunch. After a casual lunch, I had almost 10 missed calls. By the end of the day we had several offers. The home is pending to the best offer today (which isn't always the highest $... I'll explain later).
