A few thoughts about the Rosemary Beach real estate market: 
  • Last year, quite a few properties were on the market that were new construction in Rosemary - including both the Georgetown and Orleans condos. Last year (and this year) we have seen a number of homes purchased and owners renovating and/or adding a carriage house to bolster value and enjoyment. 
  • This year, we have seen a number of homes come on the market that are excellent candidates for renovation, freshening, or updating for 2019+ buyer expectations. We are seeing many of these owners "testing the waters" who have initially listed their homes above market value - but are settling in to find the real market value. NOTE: Don't be afraid to make an offer.*
  • As we've seen time and time again, the Rosemary Beach real estate market is strong and in high demand. After all, it is one of the crown jewels of 30A. 2019+ buyers however are increasingly wanting immediate satisfaction and are opting for homes that are already renovated and decorated. 
  • A final factor in the Rosemary Beach real estate market is actually a neighboring town, Alys Beach. As Alys Beach develops (and especially as the Owners Beach Club finishes) we are seeing increased competition between the two communities. Although Alys Beach is a bit more expensive per square foot, some buyers are opting for the "newness" of the community, all concrete construction, a beach club, and new amenities. Others still prefer the "family" feel of Rosemary, and the established nature of the community.
