Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Jan. 29 – Feb. 5, 2016

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold SignOld Man Winter hung around for another week chillin’ on our beaches and whipping up winter winds. Try as he might, though, he couldn’t cool down our real estate market as we had another hot week, closing five sales and adding five new contracts. Sellers hung “For Sale” signs on twelve new listings, and changed prices on ten others. Very little change in the inventory, shaving off two, closing the week at 247, with 71 homes and 176 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor market. Let’s see what’s been catching buyers’ attention.

 

Cape San Blas Interior Townhouse at Barrier Dunes Under Contract Jan. 2016 with List Price of $169,000

The first of our five sales is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,377-square foot townhouse up in Barrier Dunes. The sellers bought this 1985 model back in June 1986 for $81,000, listed it for $169,000, and sold it on Tuesday for $157,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract Dec. 2015 with List Prie of $375,000

Our second sale takes us about half a mile down the beach to Ovation, where buyers penned a deal in December on a 48′-wide gulf front lot listed for $375,000. The sellers bought it in May 2012 for $135,000 when the developer had a deep discount sale, and turned a tidy little profit this week closing for $325,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View House Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $399,000

Sale number three is just south of Ovation in Cape Breezes, one of the earliest subdivisions on the Cape, platted in 1982. In November, buyers fell in love with this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,888 square foot gulf view home on the bay side of Cape San Blas Road. It’s situated on a half-acre, X zone lot the sellers bought in April 2004 for $200,000, and sold the house on Monday for $373,500.

SR-30 Home Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $179,000

Our fourth sale takes us over to C-30 about a mile north of Cape San Blas Road to this 4-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,444 square-foot home listed for a very attractive $179,000. The owners bought it in 2014 f0r $71,300 and did a total overhaul on it, fixing it up very nicely. They then made it available as a long-term rental and have had it occupied ever since. On Thursday all that hard work paid off as they went to closing picking up a check for $175,000.

Indian Pass Gulf Front Lot Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $425,000

Our fifth and final sale is over on Indian Pass with this  100′ by 525′, 1.2-acre gulf front lot that went under contract in early January with a list price of $425,000. The family has owned this property for a very long time so no sales history on it.  On Friday they bid it adieu, picking up a check at closing for $380,000.

Cape San Blas Townhouse Under Contract February 2016 with List Price of $236,000

Now on to our five new contracts, heading back up to Barrier Dunes, where shoppers took a shine to this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,377 square foot, circa 2002 townhouse on Parkside listed for $236,000. The sellers bought the pond-front home in June 2009 for $236,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract February 2016 with LIst Price of $429,900

Bargain hunters saw a great deal in this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,982 square foot gulf view home on Cancun Drive listed for $429,900. Built in 2005, it’s situated on a quarter-acre “X” zone lot, and has a nice size in-ground pool.  The sellers bought the home in the summer of 2006 for $510,000. Cancun Drive is adjacent to Turtle Dunes, which is home to our next contract.

Second Tier Gulf View Lot at Cape San Blas Under Contract February 2016 with List Price of $95,000

Literally right next door to the house on Cancun is this second tier, quarter-acre, “X” zone lot listed for $95,000.  The property is nice and level, basically cleared, and overlooks the sparkling waters of the community pool. This little lovely last sold at the height of the market in 2004 for $280,000.

Gulf Front Cape San Blas Home Under Contract February 2016 with List Price of $879,900

Just south of Scallop Cove is a place that’s been trying to find a buyer since mid-2009 when it entered the market asking $1.28M. “Jubilee”, as it’s known, is a 5-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 2,494 square foot home built in 2008 on a 100′ wide gulf front lot.  There is a screened-in porch on the south side of the house, but none facing the beach. The sellers finally whittled their price tag down to $879,900 and got it under contract last weekend.

Gulf Pines First Tier Lot Under Contract February 2016 with List Price of $129,000

We’ll wrap things up today over in Gulf Pines with this 75′ by 130′, quarter-acre, first tier gulf view lot listed for $139,000. The last time it was on the market was in 1998 when the sellers picked it up for $45,00. Gulf Pines fronts C-30, overlooks the south-facing beach, and is a FEMA flood insurance eligible area. It’s a nice little community with annual HOA fees of only $100.

That does it for today.  Listings are continuing to move at a pretty brisk pace so if you’ve been toying with the idea of acquiring a piece of coastal paradise, it’s time to act before all the choicest listings are sold.  Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started.  Until then, have a great week and I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by.

We added eight new listings and changed the price on four others. Our inventory inched up by two, closing the week at 249, with 75 homes and 174 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor market. We have a lot of territory to cover today so let’s get moving.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Townhouse Under Sold January 2016 for $318,000

We’re up on the north end of the Cape in Barrier Dunes for the first of our six sales, a 3-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 1,856-square foot gulf view townhouse which the sellers listed at the end of October for $349,900. They bought the home back in 1999 for $165,000 and sold it on Friday for $318,000 to a cash buyer.

Bank-Owned Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $82,900

Our second sale is a bank-owned, gulf-view, “X”-zone lot in Seagrass listed for $82,900. The quarter-acre property last sold in 2011 for $215,000.  The new owners took title on Friday for $78,000 using conventional financing.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $495,000

On nearby Catamaran Drive a family found their piece of coastal paradise when they spotted this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,656 square foot second tier home with awesome gulf views. It’s situated on a 107′ by 102′ “X” zone lot. The home, built in 2003, was purchased by the seller in mid-2007 for $550,000 and went under contract in mid-December with a list price of $495,000. The happy new owners picked up their keys on Friday for $485,000.

Cape San Blas First Tier Home Under Contract May 2015 with List Price of $634,000

Our fourth sale is on Tiffany Beach Road just a bit north of Scallop Cove. Buyers liked this 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 3,129 square foot first tier for-sale-by-owner home  for which the sellers were asking $710,000. The sellers bought this lovely home back in May for $607,000, and turned over the keys at closing to the new owners  for their asking price of $710,000.

Two Interior Lots at Cape San Blas Under Contract Jan. 2016 with LIst Price of $49,900 Each

We’ll head to the south side of the Cape for our final two sales, two contiguous lots on Moonrise Drive directly behind The Sand Bucket Smokehouse & Grill. The lots are roughly a quarter acre each, and are listed for $49,900 apiece, and sold on Thursday for $39,000 each.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract January 2015 with LIst Price of $647,500

The first of our four new contracts is this handsome 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,176 square foot first tier home on White Sands Drive, just north of Ovation on the Cape. This circa-2001 home has terrific views, plenty of porch space to soak in the sounds of the surf, and a private pool. The sellers bought the rental property in 2009 for $515,000, and have it listed for $647,500.

Bank-Owned Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $499,900

In nearby Cape Breezes, a subdivision just on the south side of Ovation, there was a bank offering on this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,496 square foot gulf front 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,496 square foot gulf front home built in 1984.  The beauty of this place is that it’s not only located in a great little community with no HOA or HOA fees, it is situated on a 102′ gulf front lot, hard to find any more on the Cape. The bank intentionally listed this at an irresistibly low price of $499,900 to encourage offers and their strategy definitely worked. Within just a few days of it hitting the MLS they had nine offers in hand.

Bank-Owned Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $499,900

Immediately south of Cape Breezes on Hibiscus Lane buyers fell in love with this 68′ wide bay front beauty listed for $204,900. This secluded setting is not part of Hibiscus Bay subdivision, so once again, no HOA or HOA fees. The owners bought the property in 2007 for $265,000.

Money Bayou Gulf Front Lot Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $249,000

We’ll travel off the Cape for the first time today for our fourth and final new contract, written on a 50′ by 480′ gulf front lot on Sweetwater Shores Drive in Money Bayou.  This is on the south facing beach in an area that is FEMA eligible. These sellers bought the property back in the summer of 2000 for $165,000.

That does it for this week. There doesn’t seem to be any let up in pace despite this typically being a lower time of year, so if you’ve been toying with the idea of getting in on some of the great values to be had it’s time to get started. Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and let’s see what we can find for you.  Thanks so much for taking time our of your schedule to stop by today; I hope to hear from you soon.

The first of our two sales is a 51′ wide gulf front lot on Clipper Way, under contract since mid-December with a list price $239,000. Originally listed back in July for $325,000, the sellers have wisely been tweaking that price in search of the market value, finally arriving at $239,000 on December 12, and two days later had it under contract. They bought it in the summer of 2010 for $150,000; back in 2004, it sold for $550,000.  This week they signed over the title for $235,000.

The first of our three new contracts is a 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,377-square foot townhouse up in Barrier Dunes. The sellers bought this 1985 model back in June 1986 for $81,000, and have it listed for $169,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract Jan. 2016 with List Price of $674,900

Clipper Way is a happening place lately. It’s the site of our second contract, a 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,560 square foot gulf front home listed for $674,900. It was built in 1999, and has changed hands a few times since then; selling in 2004 for $775,000, and the current owners bought it in December 2009 for $460,000.

Second Tier Lot On Cape San Blas Under Contract Jan. 2016 with LIst Price of $119,000

Our third and final new contract is on a second tier road-front lot in Ocean Haven, a subdivision just south of Seagrass. This 63′ by 210′ property offers both gulf and bay views, and is listed for $115,000.

That’s a wrap for today. Hard to believe all this activity in mid-January. I guess no one got the memo this is supposed to be a slow time of year!  We need inventory. If you’re toying with the idea of selling, CALL ME! 850-227-5197 puts you through to my cell.  Properties are definitely moving and prices are rising. Hope to hear from you soon. I really appreciate your taking time to stop by today. Have a great week, and look forward to seeing you back next week.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Jan. 2-8, 2016

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and Sold SignNew Year’s fireworks continued well into the week as a lot of people who apparently had “Buy a place at the Beach” on their resolutions list made good on that goal; they closed six sales and wrote up seven new contracts.  Sellers added 10 new listings to the mix, and changed prices on two others.  A number of the listings that expired on the 31st have renewed, so our inventory jumped back up by seven, closing out the week at 235, with 73 homes and 162 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market. Let’s take a detailed look at all the action.

The Other Ocean Haven Lot Two First Tier Lots in Ocean Haven Under Contract November 2015 with LIst Prices of $219,000 each

Bank-Owned Lagoon Front Lot on C-30 Under Contract December 2015 with LIst Price of $29,500

Our sixth and final sale is a bank-owned lagoon front lot on C-30 out past the Indian Pass Raw Bar.  Interesting sales history on this one with it having sold in mid-2004 for $250,000, then again in October 2008 for $100,000.  It went under contract last week with a list price of $29,500, and closed on Tuesday for $27,500 cash.

The owners bought it in 2014 f0r $71,300 and did a total overhaul on it, fixing it up very nicely. They then made it available as a long-term rental and have had it occupied ever since.

Indian Pass Gulf View HOme Under Contract January 2016 with List Price of $499,000

Our seventh and final new contract takes us over to Apalachee Drive in Indian Pass Beach Subdivision to this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 2,160 square foot gulf view home listed for $499,000.  According to the MLS, it went under contract the same day it was listed. The sellers are the original owners, and built the lovely home in 1999.

That does it for this week. Lots going on and our inventory of homes has been steadily coming down, so if you’ve been thinking of buying a house at the beach you may want to add that to your list of New Year resolutions for 2016.  I can help with your search – call or text me at 850-227-5197 or send me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Have a great week, keep warm, and thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldHappy New Year!!!!!  I hope you’ve enjoyed the holiday season.  I took some time off over Christmas to enjoy being with family and friends, and now I’m feeling tanned, rested, and ready to launch into 2016 with renewed vigor.  We ended 2015 on a good note, closing two sales and writing up three new contractsThree new listings joined the mix, and nobody marked down their prices as the year came to a close.  We end the year with our inventory down 8% from last New Year’s Day, closing out at 228, with 70 homes and 158 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Duplex Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $229,000

The sellers bought it in late 1997 for $59,500, had it listed for $229,000, and closed on Monday for $200,000 even.  It needs a little TLC, but has good rental potential.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review Dec. 12-18, 2015

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and Sold SignThere was no let-up in Christmas shopping along the coast this week as we rang up an impressive four sales and five new contracts, opened just one new listing and lowered the prices on six properties. Our inventory shed ten, closing the week at 248, with 77 homes and 171 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

Interior Barrier Dunes Townhouse Under Contract October 2015 with List Price of $219,000

The first of our four sales is in Barrier Dunes where this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath and 1,377 square feet townhouse on Parkside went under contract in late October with a list price of $219,000, below the $220,000 the sellers paid for it in November 2007. The new owners took title on Monday for $198,000.

South Gulf County Bay View Home Under Contract September 2015 with List Price of $389,000

We’re travelling out onto the C-30 Corridor, heading all the way over to Shallow Reed in Simmons Bayou for our next two sales, beginning with this newly built 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,786 square foot bay view home that went under contract at the end of October with a list price of $389,000.  The buyers procured a VA loan with the seller paying $3,000 of their closing costs, and the parties closed on Friday settling for $377,000.

Interior Lot Near Golf Course Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $23,900

The other sale in Shallow Reed is this 65′ by 160′, quarter-acre interior lot went under contract last month as a short sale with a list price of $23,900.  The sellers bought it in early 2006 for $100,000, and sold it on Wednesday for $19,000.

Indian Summer Canal Front Lot Under Contract October 2015 with List Price of $59,000

Our fourth and final sale is over in Indian Summer at Indian Pass. Back in October buyers penned a deal on a 90′ by 265′, half-acre canal front lot listed for $59,000. The sellers bought it in June 2002 for $95,000, and have now closed for $55,000.

Cape San Blas Bay Front Lot Under Contract December 2015 with LIst Price of $249,900

Unlike our sales, all of this week’s five new contracts are on the Cape.  We’ll begin our review up by the state park where this 100′ wide, 1.26 acre bay front lot went under contract last Saturday with a list price of $249,900. The seller is in the process of running sewer lines down to this property so the buyers won’t have septic setbacks to factor in when planning on where to situate their dream home on this beautiful parcel of land.

Cape San Blas Home Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $409,000

About a half mile further south, buyers had their offer accepted on this 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 2,000 square foot coastal home listed for $409,000. Built in 1988, the sellers have done impressive renovations updating it into a very attractive home.  It is situated on a quarter-acre “X” zone lot on the gulf side of Cape San Blas Road in Peninsula Estates, a subdivision where each property conveys with deeded gulf and bay access.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $239,000

On Clipper Way, down in the vicinity of The Cape Tradin’ Post, our third contract is on a 51′ wide gulf front lot listed for $239,000. Originally listed back in July for $325,000, the sellers have wisely been tweaking that price in search of the market value, finally arriving at $239,000 on December 12, and two days later had it under contract. They bought it in the summer of 2010 for $150,000; back in 2004, it sold for $550,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $495,000

On nearby Catamaran Drive a family found their piece of coastal paradise when they spotted this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,656 square foot second tier home with awesome gulf views. The home, built in 2003, was purchased by the seller in mid-2007 for $550,000 and is currently listed for $495,000. It’s situated on a 107′ by 102′ “X” zone lot.

Cape San Blas First Tier Gulf Side Lot Under Contract December 2015 with List Price of $155,000

Our fifth and final new contract is on an 81′ by 181′, one-third acre gulf view lot just south of Scallop Cove, listed for $155,000. It last sold in 2004 for $415,000.

I hope you have a wonderful week of celebration with family and friends. My husband and I are staying here at the Cape for Christmas so if you’re in the area over the holidays I hope you’ll stop by and say hello. My office is at 1252 Cape San Blas Road and my number is 850-227-5197. Merry Christmas, and let’s meet here again next Saturday.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Nov. 28-Dec. 4, 2015

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold SignThe Thanksgiving week visitors have gone, so there have been far fewer people around the Cape since last Saturday, but we still had a good week, especially for this time of year when things typically start slowing down a bit. We closed two sales and wrote up three new contracts, added three new listings, and entered one price change. Our inventory shed four, closing at 257, with 78 homes and 179 lots for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor Market. Let’s take a look at what’s moving off the shelves.

Barrier Dunes Park View Townhouse Under Contract October 2015 with List Price of $215,000

The first of our two sales is up in Barrier Dunes, where this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,377 square foot park view townhouse went under contract in late October with a list price of $215,000. The sellers bought it in late 2003 for $195,000, and sold it on Tuesday for exactly that – $195,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Townhouse Under Contract November 2015 with List Price of $289,900

Our second sale takes us about two miles down the beach to Cape Shoal where this one a 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,120 square foot gulf front unit went under contract in early November with a list price of $289,900. In 2008, it sold for $287,500, and today’s sellers bought it in December 2013 for $275,000, which is precisely what it sold for on Friday.

Cape San Blas Gulf View House Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $399,000

The first of our three contracts is in Cape Breezes, one of the earliest subdivisions on the Cape, platted in 1982. It’s just south of Ovation. On Monday, buyers fell in love with this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,888 square foot gulf view home on the bay side of Cape San Blas Road. It’s situated on a half-acre, X zone lot the sellers bought in April 2004 for $200,000.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Nov. 21-27, 2015

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold SignI hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. The weather along the coast couldn’t have been lovelier. Buyers were thinking about more than just turkey, though, taking time to gobble up a fair amount of real estate, closing four sales, writing up four new contracts, adding five new listings, and marking up the price on one listing. Our inventory remained essentially unchanged, shedding only one, closing at 261, with 81 homes and 180 lots for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor Market. Let’s take a look at what’s moving off the shelves.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract October 2015 with LIst Price of $1.199M

The first of our four sales is this awesome 5-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,700 square foot lovely with all the bells and whistles. Located on the north side of Barefoot Trace subdivision less than a quarter mile north of Scallop Cove, it features this inviting pool over looking the gulf, a high-end outdoor kitchen, pool side hot tub, and beautifully designed fire pit atop the dunes.   The seller bought the 50-wide, X zone lot in late 2009 for $375,000 and built the home in 2010.  On Friday the lucky new owners picked up the keys at closing for $1,075,000.

Lots at Shallow Reed

We’re over off of C-30 in the Simmons Bayou area for sales two and three. Three weeks ago buyers negotiated a deal on two adjacent lots in The Village Phase of Shallow Reed, a subdivision not far from Presnell’s boat launch and the St. Joe golf course. Back in 2006 they sold for $100,000 each. November 3rd they went under contract with list prices of $24,500 apiece, and they closed for $17,500 each.

Forgotten Coast Country Lot Under Contract November 2015 with LIst Price of $15,900

Our fourth and final sale is on a lot in a secluded peaceful wooded country setting in the small subdivision of Stillwater tucked away off C-30 just 2.4 miles east of Indian Pass Raw Bar. In March 2005 it sold for $118,214 but was eventually foreclosed on. I worked with a young investor who purchased it from the bank in October 2010 for the unbelievably low price of $6,500. He decided to put it back on the market last year for $15,900, and two weeks ago accepted an offer on it.  The buyer has been dreaming of finding a place along the Florida coast to plan her dream retreat, and this pretty little parcel was the perfect spot. She happily took title on Tuesday for $13,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Acreage Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $350,000

We’ll begin our review of this week’s four new contracts on the north end of the Cape in Secluded Dunes where buyers penned a deal on six first tier gulf view lots listed for $350,000. Combined, they measure roughly 316′ by 375′ for a total of 2.82 acres. There appears to be a fair amount of wetlands on the property.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front House Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Proice of $994,900

About two miles south on Windy Lane in Paradise Gulf, our second contract is on a rambling 5-bedroom, 5-bath, 3,840 square foot gulf front home listed for $994,900. The sellers bought the 67′ wide lot in 1994 for $75,000, and built the home in 1996.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Duplex Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $229,000

Just north of Scallop Cove in Barefoot Trace, our third contract is on one side of this gulf view duplex. The 1,276 square foot, 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath home was built in 1985. The sellers bought it in late 1997 for $59,500 and have it listed for $229,000.  It needs a little TLC, but has good rental potential.

Interior Lot Near Golf Course Under Contract Nov. 2015 with List Price of $23,900

We’ll wrap up our review back over in Shallow Reed where this 65′ by 160′, quarter-acre interior lot went under contract as a short sale with a list price of $23,900.  The sellers bought it in early 2006 for $100,000.

That does it for today – pretty quick trip so you have plenty of time to get back to work on those Thanksgiving leftovers. If you need to move cash assets into real estate before the end of the year there is still time to do so but we need to get started, so call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com. Have a terrific week and thanks so much for taking time during this holiday weekend to stop by.
