Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – June 10-16, 2017

Published by at 12:08 PM under Cape San Blas

For Sale and Sold What a wet and soggy week we’ve had with over eight inches of rain recorded out here on the Cape. Try as she might, though, Mother Nature simply could not dampen our market as we turned in a good week recording three sales, and five new contracts, added nine new listings, and changed the prices on three others. After being stubbornly stuck at 267 for several weeks, we were finally able to trim our inventory, closing down four from last week  at 263, with 78 homes and 185 lots  listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor MLS market.

Newly Built Home in Jubilation at Cape San Blas Sold June 2017 for $525,000

The first of our three sales is down on the south side of the Cape in Jubilation where this newly constructed 4-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 2,401 square foot home has been under contract with a list price of $529,00. The seller purchased the 50′ by 92′  “X” zone  lot last summer for $40,000. This week they sold the home for $525,000.

Gulf View Home at Waters Edge Sold June 2017 for $346,500

Heading off the Cape out onto C-30, sale number two is this 4-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 1,981-square-foot spec home listed for $359,000. It’s located in Water’s Edge subdivision which includes a community pool, tennis courts, and deeded gulf access. The home itself has a minimal yard to upkeep, and overlooks a beautiful wildlife preserve.

Gulf Pines First Tier Lot Sold June 2017 for $145,000

Our third and final sale is over in Gulf Pines, where the sellers signed over the title to their 90′ by 268′, half-acre first tier lot for $145,000 cash.  This one went under contract late last Friday and closed on Thursday.

Cape San Blas Bay View Home Under Contract June 2017 with List Price of $428,000

Now on to our five new contracts, starting up on the north end of the Cape in Sunset Pointe on Hemmingway Circle where sellers accepted an offer on their 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,684 square-foot home with an unobstructed view of the bay.    They bought the quarter-acre “X” zone lot in early 2010 for $55,000, built the home in 2012, and have it listed for $428,000.

Cape San Blas Newly Built Home in Jubilation Under Contract June 2017 with List Price of $679,900

We’re returning to Jubilation on the south side of the Cape for our second contract which is on this brand new 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 2,537 square foot home listed for $679,900.  The seller bought the “X” zone lot just last summer for $69,000, so they got this beauty built pretty quickly.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract June 2017 with List Price of $89,900

A few blocks away is Surfside Estates, where we have a new contract on a 90′ by 123′, quarter-acre, “X” zone lot listed for $89,900. This subdivision has easy-going covenants and low annual HOA fees, currently only $240 per year.   This lot last sold in mid-2003 for $149,000.

Cape San Blas Home at Boardwalk Under Contract June 2016 with List Price of $380,000

Boardwalk is right next door to Surfside Estates and here sellers accepted an offer on their recently renovated 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,296 square-foot vacation rental home listed for $380,000.  It features a sparkling brand new kitchen with all new cabinets and appliances, and 2 beautifully renovated baths.  This quiet community has a lovely pool overlooking the Gulf, and a wide, expansive stretch of beach. Current HOA fees are $1,060 paid annually, or only about $88 per month.

Indian Pass First Tier Lot Under Contract June 2017 with List Price of $110,000

We’ll head on over to Indian Pass for the first time today to wrap things up with this 100′ by 148′, third-of-an-acre gulf view lot listed for $110,000, which is exactly what the seller paid for it in June 2012.

That brings us up to date through noon Friday.  I’m finishing up a little earlier than usual as I’m road tripping with some gal pals this afternoon up to the Slocomb Tomato Festival to stock up on enough farm-fresh tomatoes to ensure a full summer’s supply of salsa.  Slocomb tomatoes are about the best tasting tomatoes you’ll ever eat but if you want them you have to travel up to Alabama where they’re a prized local specialty.

On another note, if you had trouble viewing last week’s post I apologize. I don’t know what type of gremlin crawled into it corrupting some of the coding, but I wasn’t aware of it til late Thursday.  Hopefully everything will remain running smoothly this week.  If you ‘re interested in finding out more about our coastal real estate, or if you’d like to talk about what your current property might bring in today’s market, I’ll be glad to help you. Simply call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop an email to sheri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started.  Have a great week, and thank you so much for taking time to stop by today.
