Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – May 19-25, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and Sold SignWe enter the Memorial Day weekend keeping an eye on newly-formed Tropical Storm Alberto currently sipping cocktails off the coast of Yucatan but apparently with travel plans up our way by Sunday or Monday. At this point, looks as if he’ll be dropping a lot of rain but not a lot of punch, so let’s hope he keeps it that way. It has been a gorgeous week leading up to this long weekend, and buyers have been out in force, closing six sales and writing up seven new contracts. Sellers added a staggering sixteen new listings and changed prices on eight others.  With all those new listings it is no wonder our overall inventory shot up by 13, ending the week at 301, with 89 houses and 212 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor Market.

Ovation Bay View Home Under ContractMay 2018 with List Price of $819,900

We’ll start our review of this week’s six sales on the north end of the Cape in Ovation, where just three weeks ago sellers accepted an offer on their recently built 4-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 2,126 square-foot bay-view home listed for $819,900. It’s built on an X-zone lot and is a lot like owning a bay front home with that vast expanse of commons green in front of it guaranteeing to preserve that gorgeous view. BONUS: Somebody else mows all that green grass in front of them!  Sweet.  The lucky new owners picked up the keys at closing on Friday for $800,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Conract Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $579,000

Our second sale is about a mile south of Ovation in a recently platted small subdivision, The Preserve at the Cape, where buyers took title to this 50′ wide, half-acre, gulf font lot on Wednesday for $525,000, or $10,500 per water front foot, a new recent benchmark for the Cape. It was listed for $579,000. According to the MLS notes, this price included a DEP permit.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Condo Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $439,900

Down on the south side of the Cape in the Club at Cape San Blas we have one of a small handful of condos in our area, this one a tasteful and attractive complex on the gulf.  This particular unit features gorgeous knotty pine floors in the main living area, oak cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a private balcony off of the master bedroom and plenty of closets. This truly lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,404 square foot, second floor end unit went under contract a mere two weeks ago less than a month after it was listed with a list price of $439,900.  On Friday the new owners picked up the keys at closing for $430,000.

Cape San Blas First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $119,900

A few blocks away on Mercury Lane in Surfside Estates is a 50′ by 230′ first tier lot listed since January for $119,900.  The sellers  bought it in 1999 for $59,000, and sold it this week for $90,000.

C-30 Bay View Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $49,000

Our fifth sale is a 75′ by 215′, 0.37-acre bay view lot out along C-30. The sellers bought it in early 2002 for $42,000, had it listed for $49,000, and sold it on Tuesday for $45,000.

Lagoon Front Mixed Use Lot on CR-30 Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $69,000

For our sixth and final sale we’ll travel east on C-30 out past the Raw Bar to this roughly 0.8 acre lagoon front lot, zoned mixed use, under contract for just two weeks with an asking price of $69,000. The savvy seller bought it way back in 1987 for a mere $5,000, and sold it on Wednesday for $63,000. Yo, MIllenials: long-term real estate investments can yield big dividends. Buy and hold to fund your fun years down the road. Just sayin’ . . .

Barrier Dunes End Unit Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $265,000

Now on to our seven new contracts starting off on the north end of the Cape in Barrier Dunes where there was one heck of a lot of activity, with three buyers penning contracts, starting off with this 2-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath, 1,216 square foot townhouse on Barrier Dunes Drive listed for $265,000. This is an end unit which last sold it the summer of 2006 for $300,000. Interestingly, the listing agent is also the person who sold it to the current owner back then.

Cape San Blas Townhome Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $272,500

The second Barrier Dunes contract was on a 3-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 1,888 square foot unit on Parkside listed for $272,500.  The sellers bought it in late 2003 for $235,000, and they have done a number of improvements since then, replacing the roof in 2012, painting the exterior in 2016, replacing the refrigerator in 2014 and the range and dishwasher in 2015.

Cape San Blas Interior Twonhouse Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $229,000

The third new contract in Barrier Dunes is on this 2-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath, 1,377 square foot unit on Parkview listed for $229,000. The sellers bought it in mid-2012 for $120,000.

Newly Built Gulf Front Home at Capae San Blas Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $1.449M

There was gulf front action, too, with buyers penning a contract on this newly built 4-bedroom, 4-1/2-bath, 3,515 square foot gulf front home on Summerhouse Lane in Sea Dunes subdivision.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $465,000

Between San Dunes and The Tradin’ Post is Sea Dunes Lane where this recently renovated 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,248 square foot gulf view cottage went under contract last Saturday with a list price of $465,000. The sellers bought this place in the summer of 2014 for $255,000 and have done an amazing transformation since them.  For all you HGTV fans of Fixer Upper, here are sample before and after pictures:

Pretty impressive.

Piney Woods 2nd Tier Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $69,900

Back down to the south side of the Cape again for our sixth new contract which is on a 72′ by 55′, .09 AC second tier lot on McCosh Mill Road in Piney Woods listed for $69,900. The sales history on this one was a bit unclear looking at county records.

Money Bayou 2nd Tier Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $79,900

We’ll wrap things up today over in Money Bayou where sellers accepted an offer on their 35′ by 120′, .07-acre second tier lot listed for $79,900. The property appraiser’s site cited no significant sales data for this property.

That about wraps it up for this week’s review. Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you’d like more info on these or any other properties, just shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com or call me on my cell at 850-227-5197.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend as we take time to remember those who gave their all to protect our freedoms and to their families for whom this is an especially sacred day, for they have sacrificed so much on our behalf.

On Memorial Day, remember the family members whose loved ones gave their all to preserve our freedoms.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – May 12-18, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldOur long overdue April showers finally arrived this week drenching us for a while each day with some very much needed rain, though for our visitors’ sakes I hate to see it delivered during the day.  Even so, all that soggy stuff didn’t dampen our market, as we closed three sales and wrote up five new contracts. Sellers signed thirteen new listing agreements, and changed prices on four others. Our inventory remained unchanged at 288, with 87 houses and 201 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor MLS market.

Ovation Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $419,000

We’ll start our review of this week’s three sales on the Cape up in Ovation where the parties went to the closing table on this 50′ wide, 0.38-acre, gulf front lot listed for $419,000. Interesting history here. In May 2012, Ashwood Development sold it during their liquidation sale for $135,000. That buyer sold it the following year for $243,700 to the current owners, and they in turn signed it over to the new owner on Tuesday for $400,000 with the buyers using conventional financing..

Our second sale is just a few blocks further south on Cape San Blas Road where this 54′ by 154′, 0.19-acre bay view lot went under contract last month with a list price of $134,000. It’s located in a small subdivision called Dolphin Beach to Bay, and includes deeded access to both the gulf and bay.  There is a dock on the bay directly across the street from this lot available for the exclusive use of this small neighborhood.  On Tuesday the parties closed for $114,500 cash.

Bay Front Home on C-30 Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $539,900

Over on SR-30 near Triple Tails Restaurant in Simmons Bayou, our third sale is this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,920 square-foot, bay front beauty listed for $539,900. It’s nestled on a 2.45-acre parcel with 122′ of waterfront, and was built in 1995.  One of the principals in the LLC selling it bought it in 2004 for $650,000.  This week the new owners picked up the keys at closing for $530,000 using conventional financing.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $1.19M

We’re back on the north end of the Cape this time for the first of our five new contracts, starting off with this 4-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 2,700 square foot gulf front home listed as a short sale for $1,190,00. It has 116′ of gulf front in a VE flood zone. The sellers bought it in mid-2000 for $642,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $545,000

Next up, a 53′ by 550′, 0.77 acre gulf front lot near Coneheads listed for $545,000, a price which includes DEP permitting and building plans.  This is in the recently platted micro subdivision of Findlay Shores, so no prior sales history on this one.

Cape San Blas First Tier Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $197,000

Just south of Rish Park on the Cape is Paradise Gulf, the site of our third new contract, which is on this 83′ by 190′, .36-acre first tier lot listed for $197,000. The X zone lot last sold in March 2015 for $156,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $349,000

We’ll head on down to the south side of the Cape to Sand Dollar Drive in San Blas Plantation, the subdivision in which my office is located. Buyers had their offer accepted on this 75′ by 685′, 1-acre gulf front lot listed for $349,000. San Blas Plantation has a wooden boardwalk to the beach in place and offers bay access across the street. The sellers bought the lot in early 2002 for $475,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $500,000

Our fifth and final new contract is on McCosh Mill Road in Piney Woods subdivision where this handsome 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 2,001 square foot gulf view home listed for $500,000 went under contract on Tuesday. The sellers bought the X zone lot in 2016 for $65,000. and built the home the following year. Piney Woods owners enjoy deeded gulf access via a wooden walk-over to the beach and an attractive community pool.

That’s a wrap for this week. As you can see, sales activity continues along at a brisk pace, so if you’re considering finding a good value here along the coast for yourself, I’d love to help you. Please call or text me at 850-227-5197 or send me an email to sherri@sherridiosworth.com and we’ll get started. As I’ve said before, I love turning readers into neighbors. Have a great week, and thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – May 5-11, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign It’s been a fun week around the Forgotten Coast with the annual influx of Plein Air artists out and about capturing our beautiful area on their canvases. Buyers captured some real estate for their portfolios as well, closing seven sales, and writing up six new contracts. Sellers added a whopping fifteen new listings and changed prices on ten others.  With all that activity, our inventory jumped up by seven, closing the week at 288, with 87 homes and 201 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor market. We have a lot of territory to cover so let’s get started.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $99,000

To kick off our review of this week’s seven sales, we’ll head up to the north end of the Cape, stopping on Bent Tree Road in Bluffs at Secluded Dunes. At the end of March, sellers accepted an offer on their irregularly shaped, 0.44-acre, 4th tier gulf view lot listed for $99,000 they purchased in early 2004 for $204,900. On Tuesday the new owners took title for $91,500 using conventional financing.

Christo Beach 2nd Tier Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $139,000

About two miles down the beach, our second sale is a second-tier lot in a newly platted subdivision called Christo Beach, located on the north side of Avalon. Buyers penned an offer in March on a quarter-acre, gulf view “X” zone lot listed for $139,000, and sealed the deal on Wednesday for $137,500.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot Sold May 2018 for $130,000

A block north of The Tradin’ Post and everybody’s favorite, Weber’s Little Donut Shop, this next sale is a 154′ by 102′, third of an acre, second tier gulf view lot listed for $150,000. The sellers bought it in early 1995 for $30,900, and sold it on Tuesday for $130,000.  Nice.

Cape San Blas Duplex Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of #534,000

Our fourth sale is this handsome commercial vacation rental on Cancun Drive listed for $534,000. It has a combined total of 2,208 square feet, 7 bedrooms and 5 baths, with 4 bedrooms on one side, three on the other, each side with their own entrance, and was completed in February of 2017. It’s located on a third of an acre “X” zone lot the sellers purchased in late 2014 for $64,200. The happy new owners picked up the keys for $506,900.

Indian Summer First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $94,000

Our last three sales are over on Indian Pass, starting with this first property in Indian Summer located just off the first big turn shortly after you drive onto Indian Pass Road. Less than three weeks ago, buyers had their offer accepted on this 68′ by 170′, quarter-acre, first tier lot listed for $94,000 the seller bought in late 2014 for $62,500. On Thursday they went to closing with $91,500 cash.

Indian Pass First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $119,000

Sale number six is a roughly quarter-acre first tier lot just past the big curve on Indian Pass Road listed for $119,000.   County records seem to indicate they bought it in December 2004 for $365,000; on Tuesday they sold it for $100,000.

Our seventh and final sale is over at the point of the Indian Pass Peninsula where in late March sellers accepted an offer on their 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 2,839 square foot gulf front home overlooking St. Vincent Island.  They bought the lot with 45′ of waterfront in late 2012 for $100,000, and built the house three years later.  Back in late 2004 the lot alone sold for $670,000. On Monday the home sold well above list price for $925,000, with the Buyers receiving a $26,000 credit at closing to cover part of their closing expenses.

Barrier Dunes Townhouse Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $239,900

The sellers picked it up in early 2015 for $184,000 and have done a lot of upgrades since then such as new roof, new a/c’s, and fresh paint.

CSB 1st Tier Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $249,000

More action at Christo Beach with buyers having their offer accepted on a quarter acre total first tier lot, but since it is a flag lot, meaning that total acreage includes a long narrow access strip, so the remaining actual building area measures 49′ by 168′, or roughly 0.19 acre.  The sellers have it under contract with a list price of $249,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $649,000

Next up is a premiere Gulf Front X Flood Zone lot in Sunset Beach Estates, home to the widest gulf front lots in any subdivision on the North Cape currently available for sale. 63′ gulf front footage gives you almost a 20% wider footprint than other gulf front subdivision lots, affording you greater flexibility in your custom house plans with plenty of room for a pool. The southernmost lot went under contract on Tuesday with a list price of $649,000. Selection is limited, so let me know soon if you’d like to claim a similar setting in this coastal paradise to call your own.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Condo Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $439,900

Down on the south side of the Cape in the Club at Cape San Blas we have one of a small handful of condos in our area, this one a tasteful and attractive complex on the gulf.  This particular unit features gorgeous knotty pine floors in main living area, oak cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, private balcony off of master bedroom and plenty of closets. This truly lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,404 square foot, second floor end unit went under contract on Thursday less than a month after it was listed with a list price of $439,900.

Cape San Blas Mixed Use Lot Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $69,000

Just a few blocks east on Cape San Blas Road our fifth contract is a136′ by 170′, half-acre lot on the bay side of the road listed for $69,900. It’s zoned mixed use, residential and/or commercial, and includes deeded gulf and bay access. Water and sewer taps have been paid and are in place. Interestingly, the seller just bought it back in January of this year for $65,000.

Lagoon Front Mixed Use Lot on CR-30 Under Contract May 2018 with List Price of $69,000

We’ll wrap things up today over on C-30 out past the Raw Bar where this roughly 0.8 acre lagoon front lot, also zoned mixed use, went under contract on Thursday with an asking price of $69,000. The savvy sellers bought it way back in 1987 for a mere $5,000.

That does it for this week. If you’re interested in finding out about coastal opportunities or if you’re considering selling, let me know and I’ll be glad to help you either way. Call or text me at 850-227-5197  or send me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started. Have a terrific week, and thanks so much for taking time out of your schedule to stop by today.

Gulf Front Home at Cape San Blas Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $1,585,000

Now on to our five new contracts, starting off with this spacious 6-bedroom, 6 1/2-bath, 4,973 square-foot gulf front vacation home. It’s located on Haven Road in Seagrass in an X-zone lot on the Cape. The sellers bought the 55′ wide lot in early 2014 for $320,000, built the home in 2016, and have it listed for $1,585,000. According to the MLS, for 2018 YTD it already has $128,498 in gross rentals booked. You have to admit, revenue returns on a red hot beach front property are a lot more fun to talk about at cocktail parties than stocks or bonds no matter how hot those may have been the past year or so.

Our second contract is just a few blocks further south on Cape San Blas Road where this 54′ by 154′, 0.19-acre bay view lot went under contract on Tuesday with a list price of $134,000. It’s located in a small subdivision called Dolphin Beach to Bay, and includes deeded access to both the gulf and bay.  There is a dock on the bay directly across the street from this lot available for the exclusive use of this small neighborhood.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Condo Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $360,000

Down on the south side of the Cape is Dunes Club, home to some of the very few condominiums available on the Cape. All of the units in this three-story building are gulf front, and the complex includes a community pool and tennis courts. On Wednesday, sellers accepted an offer on their 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,176 square foot unit located on the first of the three floors of the structure. The sellers bought it in 2005 for $465,000, and have it listed for $360,000.

C-30 Home Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $449,000

We’ll leave the Cape and head east along C-30 to Water’s Edge, the first subdivision you come to on your left side of the road. Water’s Edges has a community pool, tennis courts, and deeded gulf access. On Tuesday, buyers penned an accepted offer on this 3-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 3,173 square-foot home listed for $449,000. It’s situated on a quarter acre lot and was built in 2005. The seller has been trying off and on to sell it since initially listing it back in 2005 with an asking price of $1,045,000, touting its travertine tile, marble showers, teak flooring, cherry cabinetry, granite counters, 8′ interior doors

We’ll wrap things up today over on Indian pass on Neptune Street in Indian Pass Beach subdivision where this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,290 square-foot classic beach cottage went under contract last weekend with a list price of $399,900. This entire neighborhood is grandfathered for FEMA flood insurance eligibility, and all lots convey with deeded gulf access.

And that does it for this week. With buyer demand as strong as it is we need more inventory. If you’re toying with the idea of selling, please call me at 850-227-5197. I’ll be glad to provide you with a market analysis to give you a real world idea as to the current probable market value of your property.  I hope to hear from you soon, and really appreciate your taking time to stop by today.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – April 14-20, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and Sold SignAt long last Spring finally found us and released us from the Winter that would not go away.  By mid-week we were enjoying warm, sunny days in the upper 70’s, and cool, clear nights in the 60’s.  Our real estate market remains warm and sunny as well, with nine sales, two new contracts, eight new listings, and seven price changes, one of which is a price increase. Even with all that activity, our inventory remains unchanged, closing once again at 281, with 81 homes and 200 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor MLS market. Let’s see what caught buyers’ attention.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $59,900

We’ll start our review of this week’s nine sales on the north end of the Cape on Hemmingway Lane in Sunset Pointe. The parties sat down at the closing table to sign off on the transfer of title on this 71′ x 148′, quarter-acre, corner lot listed for $59,900. The sellers bought the lot in 2010 for $24,000, and sold it on Tuesday for $58,500.

Cape San Blas Bay View Home Under Contract March 2018 with List Price o $429,000

Just a little over a mile south of Sunset Ponte is Cape Breezes, one of the early neighborhoods on the Cape dating back to the early 80’s.  It spans from bay to gulf, and all properties include deeded bay and gulf access; that bay access is located directly across the street from the home . This handsome log-style private first tier bay view home was built in 2014. The “X” zone lot on which it is built measures 180′ by 94′, and is 4-tenths of an acre. The sellers had it listed for $429,000, and handed over the keys at closing on Friday for $360,000.

Cape San Blas Bay View Lot Under Contract March 201 with List Price of $69,000

Another mile or so southward is Paradise Bay, site of our third sale, a 96′ by 200′, 0.44-acre lot listed for $69,000 and owned by one of the original developers of the subdivision. On Monday it sold for $64,000.

Seagrass Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $145,000

In nearby Seagrass, our fourth sale is a 90′ by 90′, 0.20-acre interior lot listed for $141,500.  All of the lots in this subdivision are in the X zone.  The sellers bought the property in December 2015 as a bank-owned sale for $78,000, and sold it on Friday for $115,000. In early 2005, it sold for $445,000.  What a difference a decade makes.

Jubilation Gulf View Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $75,000

Our fifth sale takes us down to the south side of the Cape to Jubilation, where buyers took title to this 80′ by 50′, 0.09-acre gulf view lot listed for $75,000, a far cry from the $450,000 it commanded in late 2004.  The sellers bought it in 2015 for $50,000, and sold it on Monday for $65,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $869,000

A few blocks away from Jubilation on Louisiana Lane in Surfside Estates, this next sale is a 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,557 square foot gulf front home with 50′ of beautiful beach front. The sellers bought the lot alone in late 2014 for $241,000 and built the home the following year. The new owners picked up the keys at closing on Friday for $810,000 cash.

Treasure Bay Bay Front Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $159,000

For our seventh sale, we’ll head off the Cape turning left on C-30 and head over to Treasure Bay where this 90′ wide bay front lot went under contract in mid-March with a $159,000 list price.  It’s 1,572′ deep, for a total of 3.2 acres, but as you can see in the photo above almost all of the acreage is bay-bottom. The sellers bought it back in 1992 for a modest $25,000, and sold it on Tuesday for $152,000.

Treasure Shores First Tier Home Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $479,900

We’ll turn around and heading back east on C-30 over to Treasure Shores where buyers found this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,456 square-foot, first tier home. The sellers bought it in 2015 for $390,000, and sold it last Friday for their full list price of $479,900.  This is a FEMA flood insurance eligible area.

Indian Pass Gulf View Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $49,900

Our ninth and final sale is on the Indian Pass peninsula in a subdivision called The Reservation. It’s home to this quarter-acre, second tier, gulf view lot listed just two and a half weeks ago for $49,900. The sellers bought it in late 2003 for $200,000, and on Wednesday they sold it for their full list price of $49,900.

Cape San Blas First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $119,900

Only two new contracts, the first of which is a 50′ by 230′ first tier lot on Mercury Lane in Surfside Estates on the south side of the Cape.  The sellers have owned it since 1999 when they bought it for $59,000. They put it on the market in January asking $119,900.

Indian Pass First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $119,000

The second contract takes us back over to Indian Pass were buyers fell in love with this roughly quarter-acre first tier lot listed for $119,000.   County records seem to indicate they bought it in December 2004 for $365,000.

That does it for this week. If you’re interested in finding out about coastal opportunities or if you’re considering selling, let me know and I’ll be glad to help you either way. Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Have a terrific week, and thanks so much for taking time out of your schedule to stop by today.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – April 7-13, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold SignMost of Georgia’s spring breakers went back to school this week so we had fewer visitors here shopping for beach properties, but Realtors were still busy as could be.  We closed five sales and wrote up four new contracts, while sellers added ten new listings and changed prices on four others.  Even with all that activity, our inventory hardly moved at all, shedding just one, closing at 281, with 80 homes and 201 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor Market MLS.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $49,900

We’ll launch into our review of this week’s five sales way up on the north side of the Cape in Sunset Pointe where buyers one month ago had their offer accepted on this third-of-an-acre interior lot. The developer quit-claimed the property to the sellers in 2010. Sunset Pointe is divided into two sections, one fronting the gulf, the other on the bay side.  Each section is gated, there is a community pool, and all properties convey with deeded gulf access.  The lot was listed for $49,900 and closed on Tuesday for exactly that.

Ovation Bay Biew Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $39,900

About a mile down the road in Ovation our second sale is this irregularly-shaped bay-view lot in an AE flood zone that went under contract just last week with a list price of $39,900. The sellers bought it from the developer in September 2012 for $29,000, and sold it on Thursday for $38,900 cash.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot in Hibiscus Beach Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $559,000

In nearby Hibiscus Beach, this newly listed gulf view lot caught buyers attention and went under contract just five days after it was listed.  The 80′ by 170′, 0.32-acre, “X” zone gulf view lot was listed by the developer for $559,000. There is a small portion of Rish Park between it and the Gulf, so it won’t be built on, but it is not actual gulf front, and the owner can’t build a walkover to the beach from their home when they build.  The new owners took title on Wednesday for $549,500 using conventional financing.

Gulf Pines 1st Tier Home Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $499,000

For sale number four, we’ll head off the Cape traveling east on C-30 to Gulf Pines to this 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,200 square foot, first tier home listed for $499,000. The sellers paid $120,000 for the quarter-acre lot in early 2016 and built the home that same year. On Monday they handed over the keys to the new owners for $475,000.

Gulf Front Lot at Money Bayou Under Contract March 2018 with LIst Price of $299,000

A little further east on C-30 over in Money Bayou our fifth and final sale is this 50′ wide by 486′ deep, half-acre gulf front lot on Sweetwater Shores Drive that went under contract the first week of March with a list price of $299,000.  The sellers bought it in mid-2016 for $260,000, and sold it on Friday for $279,500.

Ovation Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $419,000

Now on to our four new contracts returning to Ovation where the parties came to an agreement on terms over this 50′ wide, 0.38-acre, gulf front lot listed for $419,000. Interesting history here. In May 2012, Ashwood Development sold it during their liquidation sale for $135,000. That buyer sold it the following year for $243,700 to the current owners.

Bay Front Home on C-30 Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $539,900

Over on SR-30 near Triple Tails Restaurant in Simmons Bayou, buyers had their offer accepted on this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,920 square-foot, bay front beauty listed for $539,900. It’s nestled on a 2.45-acre parcel with 122′ of waterfront, and was built in 1995.  One of the principals in the LLC selling it bought it in 2004 for $650,000.

Indian Summer First Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $94,000

Our last two new contracts are over on Indian Pass, starting with this first property in Indian Summer which is located just off the first big turn shortly after you drive onto Indian Pass Road. Buyers had their offer accepted on this 68′ by 170′, quarter-acre, first tier lot listed for $94,000 which the seller bought in late 2014 for $62,500.

Indian Pass 2nd Tier Lot Under Contract April 2018 with List Price of $49,900

Further out on the Indian Pass peninsula, sellers accepted an offer on this newly-platted 2nd tier lot listed for $49,900. The seller bought the parent gulf front tract in February of this year and is in the process of doing a minor replat to produce this new lot.

That’s a wrap – good to see such continuing market interest. I’ve been working with so many buyers negotiating great deals on lots and homes, and you can, too. If you’re thinking of getting in on some of these values, let’s talk! Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started. Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by today – hope to hear from you soon.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – March 31 – April 6, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold SignIt seems as if all of Georgia relocated to the Cape this week. I have never, ever seen so many people in our area. Never. Some of those folks apparently took time to snag a bit of beach real estate, as we closed five sales and drafted five new contracts. Sellers posted “For Sale” signs on sixteen new listings, and changed prices on six others.

That does it for this week. If you’re interested in finding out about other opportunities or if you’re considering selling, let me know and I’ll be glad to help you either way. Call me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com. Have a terrific Easter weekend with family and friends, and thanks so much for taking time out of your schedule to stop by today.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – March 17-23, 2018

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale Sold Sign Our Spring Breakers aren’t just partying on the beach, they’re buying it!  We scored another banner week, closing just one sale but penning nine new contracts. Sellers added five new listings, and changed the prices on three others.  Even with all those new contracts, our inventory only shaved off two, closing the week at 276 with 77 homes and 199 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market.  Let’s see what those busy buying breakers have been up to.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract Feb. 2018 with List Price of $879,000

Our one and only sale is in Cape Breezes, where this 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,642 square-foot gulf front home listed for $879,000 closed on Thursday for $819,000. This quiet community of homes is one of the earliest on the Cape, platted in the late 70’s, with recorded covenants but no HOA or HOA dues. All properties here convey with deeded access to both the Gulf and St. Joe Bay.  This family bought the lot back in 1991 for $60,000, and built the home shortly thereafter.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $59,900

The first of our bounty of nine new contracts is on the north end of the Cape on Hemmingway Lane in Sunset Pointe. The parties shook hands on terms for this 71′ x 148′, quarter-acre, corner lot listed for $59,900. Interesting sales history on this one; the sellers bought it in 2010 for $24,000. Back in 2004, the developer sold it for a whopping $530,000.

Seagrass Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $145,000

About 2 1/2 miles south is Seagrass, home to our second contract, which is a 90′ by 90, 0.20-acre interior lot listed for $141,500.  All of the lots in this subdivision are in the X zone.  The sellers bought the property in December 2015 as a bank-owned sale for $78,000. In early 2005, it sold for $445,000.  What a difference a decade makes.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front House Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $925,000

Next up is a 3-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 1,997 square foot gulf front home on Belize Drive that caught buyers’ attention.  The sellers bought the circa-2005 home in the summer of 2015 for $520,000 and have done major renovations and upgrades since then, including adding a swim spa.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home in Jubilation Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $1,450,000

Down on the south side of the Cape in Jubilation this absolutely gorgeous gulf front home went under contract on Thursday sporting a $1,450,000 price tag. Built in 2006,  the current owners bought the 5-bedroom, 5-bath, 3,248 luxury home in early 2010 for $950,000, and have completed numerous upgrades since then, such as new roof, plumbing and A/C.

Jubilation Gulf View Lot Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $75,000

Jubilation was a happening place this week, with buyers penning an offer on an 80′ by 50′, 0.09-acre gulf view lot listed for $75,000, a far cry from the $450,000 it commanded in late 2004.  The sellers bought it in 2015 for $50,000.

Interior Lot on McCosh Mill Road Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $54,900

On McCosh Mill Road in nearby Piney Woods subdivision, the parties shook hands over an agreement on this 80′ by 55′, 0.10-acre lot listed for $54,9000, for which the seller paid $35,000 in the summer of 2012.  The X zone lot is near the community pool, and within easy walking distance of the beach.

Gulf Front Lot at Money Bayou Under Contract March 2018 with LIst Price of $299,000

We’ll head off of the Cape and travel east on C-30 over to Money Bayou where this 50′ wide by 486′ deep, half-acre gulf front lot on Sweetwater Shores Drive went under contract on Monday with a list price of $299,000.   The sellers bought it in mid-2016 for $260,000.

Treasure Shores First Tier Home Under Contract March 2018 with List Price of $479,900

Treasure Shores is just beyond Money Bayou and it’s the neighborhood in which buyers found this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,456 square-foot, first tier home listed for $479,000. The sellers bought it in 2015 for $390,000, and before that it sold in 1999 for $217,000.  This is a FEMA flood insurance eligible area.

Indian Pass Gulf Front Home Under Contract March 2018 with Lis Price of $975,000

Our ninth and final contract is on this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 2,450 square foot gulf front home on Chickasaw Lane in Indian Pass listed for $975,000. The sellers bought the 68′ wide lot in 2011 for $190,000 and built the home three years later in 2014.

That wraps it up for today.  If you’re thinking of buying or selling, let’s get together. Competition for properties is strong and I’ll be glad to help you.  Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or drop a line to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started.  I hope to hear from you soon, and really appreciate your taking time to stop by today.
