Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – April 12-18, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldWhat a smokin’ hot week in real estate!  We had six closings, eight new contracts, added a bumper crop of 14 new listings, (for some reason my link to new listings is not working) and four price changes. With all those new listings, our inventory took a giant leap, jumping by eight to close the week at 275, with 79 homes and 196 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 see what has buyers fired up.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Barrier Dunes Townhouse Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $375,000

AFTER PHOTO OF LIVING AREA

The first of our six sales went under contract the day after it was listed in late March. This is one of the original townhouses at Barrier Dunes, built back in 1984. It’s a 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath gulf front home with a somewhat obstructed gulf view from the main living area due to the large dune centered in front of it. When the sellers bought it in early 2012 for $225,000, she had definitely seen better times, and needed a fair amount of TLC. They did a fine job of doing just that and sold her  with a full list cash price of $375,000.  Interesting to note than five of this week’s six sales were cash deals. Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $499,000

Next up we have a handsome 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,272 square foot gulf view home on Tampico in Cape Shoals, just south of Cape Palms Park. It is situated on a quarter-acre “X” zone lot.  When this home was built in 2002, the developer sold it for $286,000.  Those folks got it under contract with an asking price of $499,000, and went to the closing table on Friday and picked up a check for $444,000.

Gulf Front Lot in Jubilation at Cape San Blas Sold April 2014 for $200,000

Our next two sales take us to the south side of the beach to Jubilation where we have two For Sale By Owner (FSBO) sales negotiated with a Realtor that both closed on Tax Day, April 15. They were cash deals so I guess somebody had an IRS refund check burning a hole in their pocket.  First up is a 50′ by 1,080′, 1.2 acre gulf front lot the sellers bought it in late 2004 for $900,000. On Friday, they let it go for $200,000.

OGulf View Lot in Jubilation at Cape San Blas Sold April 2014  for $50,000

The same folks who bought that lot, penned a successful offer on our next sale, a gulf view lot they bought on Friday for $50,000 cash. Back in late 2004, the sellers paid $550,000 for it.

Southbeach Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $59,900

Our next sale is in nearby Southbeach, where this quarter-acre lot went under contract in mid-March with a list price of $59,900. This is a pretty little gated subdivision where all of the properties enjoy deeded gulf and bay access. My seller bought the lot in 1999 for $37,000, and was pleased to find a buyer for $57,900 on Thursday.

Gulf Pines Gulf Front Home Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $799,000

Our sixth and final sale takes us over to Gulf Pines along the C-30 Corridor to this 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,892-square-foot gulf front home for which the owners were asking $799,000. This lovely beach retreat is situated on nearly an acre of land with 103′ of gulf waterfront, and was built in 1993.  According to the Gulf County records it last sold in December 2008 for $927,400, and on Friday the new owners picked up the keys at closing for $722,500.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $325,000

No better proof that our market is on fire than the eight new contracts agents wrote up this week, starting with this 70′ by 250′, half-acre gulf front lot in Avalon just south of Rish Park that went under contract Monday with a list price of $325,000. The seller bought it at as a bank-owned fire sale in the summer of 2012 for $121,000, a far cry from the $1.125M it sold for in early 2005.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $849,000

In nearby Seagrass, our next contract is on a gulf view first tier home that for all intent and purposes except for strictly legal reasons could be considered a gulf front property since the DEP has denied permitting for some of the existing actual gulf front lots here. This seller bought the undeveloped lot in September 2005 for $885,000 and then built this home. Between then and now, the market tanked, and last Saturday he put the house under contract with a list price of $849,000.

Cape San Blas First Tier Home Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $609,000

Next up, we have a 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 3,129 square foot first tier home on Rachel Lane that went under contract Monday with a list price of $609,000.  The MLS notes help explain that seemingly high-end price tag for a first-tier house:

Exceptional three story Luxury 1st Tier Beach Home in X” Flood Zone!! This beautiful home is located at the North End of Cape San Blas where the beaches consist of sugar white sands and the water quality is exceptional. The three story home is of top quality construction and is offered for sale complete with high end appliances, furniture and furnishings. There is also a commercial grade elevator and high end amenities such as Zodiac Quartz counter tops, high impact resistant windows and doors, metal standing seam design roof, recessed lighting, electric fireplace and other upgrades that are too numerous to mention. The A/C system was replaced in 2010. The home is in impeccable condition.

The sellers bought the lot in 2002 for $185,000 and built in 2005.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract with List Price of $439,900

A few blocks further south on Dominican, out next contract is on a 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 2,112 square foot gulf view home with an in-ground pool. It is listed for $439,900, well below the $485,000 the sellers bought it for in early 2004, especially when you adjust for inflation since then.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $259,000

Barefoot Trace is a little beach community about a block north of Scallop Cove and that is where we find our next contract, which is on a 77′-wide gulf front lot listed for $259,000.  In early 2004 this same lot went for $406,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot at Southbeach Under Contract April 2014 with LIst Price of $29,900

Lots of action in Southbeach lately, and this week we have yet another lot here under contract, a quarter-acre interior one, measuring 100′ by 120′.  It went under contract Thursday sporting a $29,900 price tag, less than half the $63,500 it sold for in mid-2002.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract April 2014 with LIst Price of $69,000

We’ll mosey on over to Moonrise Avenue, the road that runs next to the old Loggerhead Café (aka Beachcombers for you old timers), where our next contract is on a quarter-acre lot  measuring 131′ by 90′ and listed for $69,000. Here’s another decade-plus loss of appreciation, the sellers having paid $85,000 for it in mid-2001.

Indian Pass Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April with List Price of $379,000

Our eighth and final contact takes us over to Indian Pass to a lovely large gulf front lot spanning all the way from the gulf to the lagoon.  The 2 1/2 acre parcel measuring 100′ by 1,089′ is listed for $379,000. My buyers were looking for a lovely place to build their forever home and this was the answer to their dream. for The seller got a steal-of-a-deal on it in November 2009 when he picked it up for $200,000.

Now’s a great time to get serious about diversifying your portfolio with some retro-priced real estate investments. I think today’s post illustrates just what a truly great variety of values our market has to offer right now. Let’s talk about what might work for you. Call or text me any time at 850-227-5197 or shoot an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Also, we’re heading into our busiest season and if you’re interested in selling get in touch with me so that we can get you on the market ASAP in time for summer buyers.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Apr. 5-11, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldWith all the sales activity we’ve had during spring break I’m beginning to think Savvy Real Estate Investing 101 must be a popular new course on campuses this year. We’ve had another terrific week, with six sales and six new contractsfive new listings and two price changes. Nice little dip in our inventory, whittling off four to close at 267, with 74 houses and193 lots listed in the MLS in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and Co-Corridor market. Let’s see what caught buyers’ eyes.

Four Cape San Blas Interior Lots at Park Point Under Contract February 2014 with Average List Price of $235,000

To begin this week’s review of our six sales we’ll start at the north end of the Cape in Park Point where a quarter-acre lot went under contact in mid-February as a short sale with a list price of $35,000.  The developer originally sold it in late 2003 in $145,000, and those folks sold it to today’s sellers in June 2004 for $230,000. On Tuesday it went for $25,000.

Cape San Blas 38' Wide Gulf Front Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $159,000

Our next sale takes us about three miles further south on the Cape, a block or so north of Scallop Cove on Wave Crest Lane where we have an unusual property, a gulf front lot that is a mere 38′ wide.  It went under contract week before last with a list price of $159,000. The site previously had a duplex on it and has been divided into two lots. The adjacent lot on the North side has a beautiful home built this year which offers a visual of the possibilities and that owner purchased this lot on Tuesday for $152,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $249,900

We had another gulf front lot go to closing, this one a 100′ wide,  1+ acre beauty in the gated Southbeach community. My seller bought it from the developer in 1999 for $150,000 and sold it on Friday for $249,000, just shy of the list price of $249,900. This property has an ample building area in the “X” zone.

First Tier Home in Money Bayou Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $288,000

Money Bayou is the site of our next sale and this old Florida neighborhood is one of my favorite areas.  The area apparently appealed to a savvy shopper in late February when they made acceptable offer on this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 720 square foot Key West cutie listed for $288,000. This area is eligible for FEMA flood insurance coverage. When this first-tier home was built in the summer of ’05 it sold for $630,000. The current sellers picked it up in 2009 as a short sale for $265,000 and have now sold it for exactly that same price.

C30 Road Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $45,000

We’ll head east along C-30 over to Treasure Shores for our fifth sale, a nearly full-acre second tier lot measuring 100′ by 395′. The sellers bought it in 1996 for $20,000 and put it under contract just last week with a list price of $59,900.  Buyers with $57,500 took the title on Wednesday.

Indian Pass Canal Front Lot Under Contract with List Price of $39,900

Our last sale is a canal front lot on the first big curve on Indian Pass Road. It’s an irregularly shaped quarter-acre property that sold last April for $15,000. This spring it went under contract with a list price of $39,900, and on Friday it sold for $34,500.

Gulf Front House at Secluded Dunes Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $749,900

Now onto our review of this week’s crop of six new contracts returning to the north end of the Cape, this time stopping in at this gulf front home up in Secluded Dunes; it’s a 3-bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, 1,800 square foot, nicely furnished home built in 1987, which the sellers bought in February 2011 for $500,000.  They have put a lot of work into it since then.  The top floor now has an open living/dining/kitchen area covered in commercial grade bamboo flooring that opens onto a large screened porch with gas grill and a separate bar and sink, perfect for entertaining.  They’ve put new furnishings throughout. That hard work paid off this week when they put it under contract with a list price of $749,900.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $279,000

Right next door in Sunset Pointe is where we’ll find our next two contracts, starting with this 78′ wide gulf front lot listed as a short sale for $279,000.  The sellers paid $826,0000 for it in early 2003. Today the county has its assessed value at $240,000.

Cape San Blas Bank-Owned Interior Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $31,000

On the interior side of Sunset Pointe, our third contract is on a bank-owned quarter-acre lot listed as an auction sale with a list price of $31,000. It last sold in December 2004 for $335,000.  The current county assessed value is $27,500.

Cape San Blas First Tier Home Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $799000

Our fourth contract takes us a couple miles down the road to Seagrass to a 5-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 3,585 square foot first tier home with an elevator and in-ground pool. The sellers purchased it in October 2007 for $1M and put it under contract Saturday with a list price of $799,000.  The gulf views from this home are amazing.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $31,000

We’ll head back to the south side of the Cape, this time stopping on Florida Avenue in Boardwalk where a quarter-acre “X” zone corner lot went under contract last weekend with a list price of $64,000, pretty close to the county’s assessed value of $60,000. The sellers bought it in late 2007 for $230,000.

Cape San Blas Bay Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $64,900

Our sixth and final new contract is on a 66′ wide bay front lot listed as a short sale for $64,900. It’s located  between Villa del Sol and Cape Dunes, and has quite a sales history. In mid-2001 it sold for $81,500, and a little over a year later in September 2002 it went for $149.000. Two years later in July 2004 it sold again for more than twice that, $395,000. Today the county has it assessed at $113,5698.

I hope you’re enjoying similarly gorgeous Spring weather in your  part of the world as we are here on the the Cape this week. I have some serious Spring fever and anxious to head out and enjoy some of this warm sunshine. I’m showing property again this afternoon, gulf front lots on the Cape, so that’s a pleasant way to enjoy an afternoon at the beach!  I’ll have my cell phone with me, so if you want more info on these or any other property, or if you want to talk about what your property might bring today if you’re an owner, by all means give me a call at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Always happy to talk real estate.  I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Mar. 29-Apr. 4, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldSpring Break continues and business is booming all over; while we don’t get a lot of college kids here, most go to Panama City Beach, we get their teachers and parents.  Rental companies, stores and restaurants have been busy as can be, and our real estate market is no different. We had a great week, closing another eight sales, wrote four more contracts, listed fourteen new properties and changed prices on ten others, with three of those being price increases. That’s a lot of territory to cover so let’s get right to it.

Barrier Dunes Townhouse Under Contract July 2013 with List Price of $279,000

To begin our review of this week’s eight sales we’ll head to the north end of the Cape to Sabal Drive in Barrier Dunes where this 1,670 two-bedroom townhouse with a loft went under contract in mid January with a list price of $279,000. From its decks you can glimpse the gulf. The sellers bought it in August 2007 for $332,500, and turned over the keys at closing on Tuesday for $236,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot at Ovation Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $49,000

In nearby Ovation, we have an interior lot on the bay side that was listed for $49,000 and closed Tuesday for $44,500. The sellers picked up this 0.17 acre lot in June 2012 for $19,000 when the developer deep discounted a lot of their inventory for several months.  The county has it assessed at $24,000.

Cape San Blas Pond Front Home Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $295,000

Hibiscus Bay attracted a buyer who submitted a winning bid on this neat little 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,010-square foot cottage resting on the banks of a pretty little pond. This small subdivision adjoins Rish Park on the Cape and situated across the street from its sister neighborhood, Hibiscus Beach. Properties in each enjoy deeded access to both the gulf and St. Joe Bay, and share a community pool. When I moved to the Cape in 1994, this home was located on a gulf front lot on Windward Street in nearby Cape Breezes, but when the seller sold that lot, he moved the home on to its present site and totally renovated it. As a result, the county records its effective age as if it had been built in 2006. It went under contract in late February with a list price of $295,000, and closed this week for $270,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot at Seagrass Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $137,500

Our next sale is a couple of miles down the road in Seagrass, where this quarter-acre lot went under contract a month ago with a list price of $137,500,. The sellers picked up a check at closing for $132,500, a very nice return on the $77,000 they paid for it exactly one year ago. In mid-2004, this lot sold for $345,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract with List Price of $80,000

We’ll head on down to the south side of the Cape for our next closing which was on a first tier gulf lot situated far back off the beach. Located in Surfside Estates on Mercury Lane, it’s a bank-owned one-third-acre property measuring 53′ by 235′ listed for $80,000, and which closed for $65,000.

Gulf Front Home at Money Bayou Under Contrat Feb. 2014 with List Price of $669,900

We’ll mosey on over to the C-30 Corridor over in Money Bayou for our sixth sale. I listed this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 2315 square foot gulf front home at the beginning of January for $669,000. The seller had it built in 2004 on a 50′ wide gulf front lot she purchased in 1997 for $49,900.  Since then, it has been performing very nicely as a rental income-producing property.  On Monday the happy new owners took title for $615,000.

Two Lagoon Front Lots Sold March 28, 2014 for $65,000

About three miles further along C-30, our next sale was for two lagoon front lots on Indian Pass Lagoon, with an aggregate water frontage of approximately 160 feet, this 1.72-acre pair was a for sale by owner negotiated with a Realtor for an agreed upon price of $65,000.

Lot on Indian Pass Road Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $75,000

Our eighth and final sale was a lot on Indian Pass Road. It measures 75′ by 113′, 0.19 acre, and has a well with pump house and a septic tank already on site.  It was listed for $75,000 and closed on Thursday for $65,000.

Ovation Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $50,000

The first of our four new contracts is on a lot in Ovation, on Pinnacle Drive, the bay side of this lovely little community. The 75′ by 85′ lot is listed for $50,000 and last sold in mid-2010 for $75,000.

Gulf View 2nd Tier Lot on C-30 Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $59,900

Over on C-30, our next contract is on a half-acre 103′ by 217′ lot listed for $45,000. The seller has had it since 1990 when it sold for $8,400.

C30 Road Front Lot Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $45,000

We’ll head east along C-30 over to Treasure Shores for our third contract which is on a nearly full-acre second tier lot measuring 100′ by 395′. The sellers bought it in 1996 for $20,000 and have it listed for $59,900.

Indian Pass Lagoon Front Home Under Contract April 2014 with List Price of $459,000

Our fourth and final contract is on a lagoon front home on Indian Pass listed for $459,000. This is an Old Florida beach cottage nestled back behind a stand of palms, with deeded gulf access right across the street, and its own private dock on the lagoon in the backyard.

That’s a wrap – good to see such continuing market interest.  Competition for attractive properties is really strong. If it’s looking good to you, chances are others are eyeing it as well. I’ve been working with so many buyers negotiating some 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 schedule today – hope to hear from you soon.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Barrier Dunes Townhouse Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $375,000

AFTER PHOTO OF LIVING AREA

The first of our five new contracts was listed on Wednesday and under contract by Thursday. This is one of the original townhouses at Barrier Dunes, built back in 1984. It’s a 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath gulf front home with a somewhat obstructed gulf view from the main living area due to the large dune centered in front of it. When the sellers bought it in early 2012 for $225,000, she had definitely seen better times, and needed a fair amount of TLC to spruce her up. They did a fine job of doing just that and have her under contract with a list price of $375,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $499,000

Next up we have a handsome 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,272 square foot gulf view home on Tampico in Cape Shoals, just south of Cape Palms Park on the Cape. It is situated on a quarter-acre “X” zone lot.  When this home was built in 2002, the developer sold it for $286,000.  Those folks have it under contract now with an asking price of $499,000.

Cape San Blas 38' Wide Gulf Front Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $159,000

About a block or so north of Scallop Cove on Wave Crest Lane we have an unusual property, a gulf front lot that is a mere 38′ wide.  It went under contract Friday with a list price of $159,000. The site previously had a duplex on it and has been divided into two lots. The adjacent lot on the North side has a beautiful home built this year which offers a visual of the possibilities.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $595,000

Our next contract is on a 5-bedroom, 5-bath, 2,600 square foot gulf front home listed for $595,000. In 1997 the lot sod for $65,000 and the house was built in 1998. The MLS provides a very nice description of the home:

Classic Beach House at Cape San Blas featuring 100′ of Gulf views. This spacious home offers everything you could want in a beachfront setting. It has 5 bedrooms, large covered porches on both levels with many windows that allow lots of light and fantastic views of the Gulf. A private boardwalk to the beach.  Enjoy gorgeous sunsets from all angles of this house. House has a 2 car garage, one side is large enough to accommodate a boat. New metal roof in 2012 and 2 brand new ACs in 2013. Crown molding through out. Gas fireplace all in the comfort of one level where the main 3 rooms are located. The 2nd floor room could serve as another living area. The downstairs room is great for the kids. House is a Sandcastle featuring storm shutters on every window/door.

Lot on Indian Pass Road Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $75,000

Our final contract is on a lot on Indian Pass Road listed for $75,000. It measures 75′ by 113′, 0.19 acre, and has a well with pump house and a septic tank already on site.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – March 15-21, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldSpring has sprung in all its glory and real estate sales are blooming all over the place along the coast.  The first official week of Spring was a fruitful one for us, with seven sales and three new contracts, fifteen new listings and three price changes. Our inventory went up by four, closing the week at 272, with 72 homes and 200 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

Four Cape San Blas Interior Lots at Park Point Under Contract February 2014 with Average List Price of $235,000

We’ll start our review of this week’s crop of seven sales up on the north end of the Cape stopping first at Park Point where three lots went under contract on the same day in February priced at $34,900 apiece. They’re about a quarter-acre each and are offered as short sales, having last sold in the summer of 2004 for an aggregate price of $935,000. These short sales were approved in less than a month, uncharacteristically fast, with each closing on Monday for $30,000.

Corner Lot on Cape San Blas Road in Paradise Bay Under Contract Jan. 2014 with List Price of $44,900

Paradise Bay is one of the original subdivisions on the Cape located on the bay side of the road just south of Rish Park. At the entrance on the corner of Cape San Blas Road and Eastwind Drive, a lot listed at the beginning of January went under contract shortly thereafter with a list price of $44,900. The sellers have owned it since 1994, and sold it on Thursday for $38,000. All of the properties in this subdivision have deeded gulf and bay access.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $239,000

Not far from the Tradin’ Post on Catamaran Drive our next sale is a 50′ wide gulf front lot that went under contract the end of February with a list price of $239,000. The seller is including a complete set of house plans with this “X” zone lot, and collected $215,000 for the package deal on Tuesday.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $695,000

We have a gulf-front beauty up next, a 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,889 square foot home on Haven Road listed for $695,000. In the twelve short years since it was built in 2002, this home has seen quite a few trips to the closing table, selling first in 2002 for $565,000, and later that same year in October for $695,000,  and then again to the current sellers in February 2008 for $810,000.  This time around it went for $625,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $599,900

We’ll head down to the south side of the Cape for our seventh and final sale, stopping in at San Blas Plantation, a community adjacent to the east side of Jubilation. Here a spacious 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 3,026 square foot, gulf front home the sellers built in 2001 went under contract a month ago with a $599,900 price tag. It’s situated in an “X” zone on a lot with 75′ of waterfront.  The new owners picked up the keys this week for $555,000.

Southbeach Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $59,900

Now onto our three new contracts, beginning on the south side of the Cape in Southbeach, where this quarter-acre lot went under contract on Friday with a list price of $59,900. This is a pretty little gated subdivision where all of the properties enjoy deeded gulf and bay access. This property last sold in 1999 for $37,000.

Gulf Pines Gulf Front Home Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $799,000

Our next contract takes us over to Gulf Pines along the C-30 Corridor to this 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 2,892-square-foot gulf front home for which the owners are asking $799,000. This lovely beach retreat is situated on nearly an acre of land with 103′ of gulf waterfront, and was built in 1993.  According to the Gulf County records it last sold in December 2008 for $927,400.

Indian Pass Canal Front Lot Under Contract with List Price of $39,900

Our last new contract is on a canal front lot on the first big curve on Indian Pass Road. It’s an irregularly shaped quarter-acre property that sold last April for $15,000. This spring it’s under contract with a list price of $39,900.

That does it for today.  Competition for good properties is really heating up and buyers are starting to feel the pressure again as more and more sellers are feeling increased confidence and standing their ground. If you’re thinking of buying or selling, let’s talk. I’ve helped put a good number of my sellers and buyers under contract in the past few weeks and I’d like to do the same for you. Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and we’ll get started. Have a great week and thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.

In nearby Ovation, we have an interior lot on the bay side under contract with a list price of $49,000. The sellers picked up this 0.17 acre lot in June 2012 for $19,000 when the developer deep discounted a lot of their inventory for several months.  The county now has it assessed at $24,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $250,000

About three miles down the road in Planter’s Cove, just a bit north of Scallop Cove, this next contract is on a 50′ wide gulf front lot under contract as a short sale with a list price of $250,000, the seller’s having paid $950,000 for it in early 2006.  The tax-assessed value on it is $205,000.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Mar. 1-7, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldOur market took a bit of a breather this week compared to what we’ve been doing recently as we closed only one sale and added just three new contracts. Sellers added but two new listings, and changed prices on four others, with three of those being price increases.  Our inventory bounced back up by nine, closing at 269, with 73 homes and 196 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market MLS.  Let’s take a look at what attracted buyers’ attention.

Second Tier Gulf View Lot in Sweetwater Shores Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $50,000

Our one and only sale was over in Money Bayou in Sweetwater Shores where this near-corner gulf view second-tier 35′ by 87′ lot went under contract two-and-a-half weeks ago with a list price of $50,000. This is a great laid back little Old-Florida neighborhood, and they have a proud new owner there who claimed this slice of paradise for $40,000.

Cape San Blas Lot Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $70,000

We’ll head to the north end of the Cape to begin our look at this week’s three new contracts.  First up is a one-acre lot in The Bluff at Secluded Dunes listed as a short sale for $70,000, the sellers having purchased it in 2003 for $338,500.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Lot at Seagrass Under Contract March 2014 with List Price of $137,500

Our second contract is a couple miles down the road in Seagrass, where this quarter-acre lot went under contract with a list price of $137,500, a potentially very nice return on the $77,000 the sellers paid for it exactly one year ago. In mid-2004, this lot sold for $345,000.

C-30 Corridor Home Overlooking St. Joe Bay Under Contract March 2014 with List Pricde of $229.000

To wrap things up today we’ll head back on out to the C-30 Corridor, this time steering towards Port St. Joe stopping in at this 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,416 square foot home overlooking St. Joe Bay. Built in 1993, it is situated on a 1.13 acre parcel with fantastic bay views from throughout the home.  It is being listed “As Is” and unfurnished for $229,000.

Wow – that didn’t take long. Quite a change of pace from the past few weeks. We’ve been seeing a lot of activity recently for this time of year, so if you’re interested in buying or selling, let me know. You can always reach me by either calling or texting to 850-227-5197 or sending me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Have a great week, and thanks so much for taking time to stop by today.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Feb. 22-28, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldWhat a wild week! Real estate is moving at quite a nice clip with three sales and ten new contractsthree new listings, and but one price change. A really encouraging indicator is our inventory took a nice plunge, dropping by nine to 260, with 69 homes and 191 lots listed in our MLS in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market. We have a fair amount of territory to cover today, so settle back with your beverage of choice, and let’s get rolling

We’ll begin our review of this week’s three sales on the north side of the Cape, stopping in first at Barrier Dunes where this pond-front 2-bedroom, 2-bath townhouse went under contract the first week of January with a list price of $198,500. When adjusted for inflation, that’s far below the $184,500 it sold for in the summer of 2002. On Friday they turned over the keys at closing for $189,900.

Cape San Blas Gulf View Home Under Contract January 2014 with List Price of $679,000

Our second sale takes us about two miles down the Cape to Seagrass, to this spacious 6-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 3,291 square foot gulf view home that went under contract in early January with a list price of $679,000. In mid-2005, the lot alone sold for $625,000.  Those owners built the home but it eventually ended up going as a bank sale in early 2009 where it went for just $475,000. This week the sellers turned it over for $625,000.

Bank-Owned Gulf Front Lot Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $87,000

Our third and final sale is out near the eastern tip of Indian Pass Peninsula, where this bank-owned lot went under contract two weeks ago with a listing price that had recently dropped to $87,000. Though technically a gulf front lot, its irregular shape is such that the buildable area is far back toward the street with the actual gulf front portion being too narrow to allow for a practical foot print. It last sold in mid-2010 for $250,000, and went for $80,000 on Wednesday which is more in line with first tier lot comps.

Four Cape San Blas Interior Lots at Park Point Under Contract February 2014 with Average List Price of $235,000

Now on to our ten new contracts, returning back to the north end of the Cape stopping first at Park Point where four lots went under contract at the same time, three priced at $34,900, and one at $35,000. They’re about a quarter-acre each and are offered as short sales, having last sold in the summer of 2004 for an aggregate price of $935,000.

Cape San Blas Pond Front Home Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $295,000

Hibiscus Bay attracted a buyer who submitted a winning bid on this neat little 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,010-square foot cottage resting on the banks of a pretty little pond. This small subdivision adjoins Rish Park on the Cape and situated across the street from its sister neighborhood, Hibiscus Beach. Properties in each enjoy deeded access to both the gulf and St. Joe Bay, and share a community pool. When I moved to the Cape in 1994, this home was located on a gulf front lot on Windward Street in nearby Cape Breezes, but when the seller sold that lot, he moved the home on to its present site and totally renovated it. As a result, the county records its effective age as if it had been built in 2006. It went under contract Wednesday with a list price of $295,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $45,000

In nearby Paradise Bay, the parties penned a contract on a roughly one-third acre interior lot measuring 83′ by 190′ and listed for $45,000. The sellers have owned it since 2001 when they paid $39,900 for it, the inflation-adjusted value of which would be $52,730 in today’s dollars. Here again, the lots in this community share deeded gulf and bay access with the owners of Paradise Gulf across the street.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $695,000

We have a gulf-front beauty up next, a 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,889 square foot home on Haven Road listed for $695,000. In the twelve short years since it was built in 2002, this home has seen quite a few trips to the closing table, selling first in 2002 for $565,000, and later that same year in October for $695,000,  and then again to the current sellers in February 2008 for $810,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $239,000

Not far from the Tradin’ Post on Catamaran Drive our next contract is on a 50′ wide gulf front lot listed for $239,000. The seller is including a complete set of house plans with this “X” zone lot.

Cape San Blas Bay Front Home Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $225,000

Down on the south side of the Cape near the Old Saltworks a seller accepted an offer on this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,312 square foot circa 2003 home tucked away behind the pines on the shores of St. Joe Bay.  The sellers bought the lot in 2002 for $115,000 and are asking $225,000 for the home.

 

First Tier Home in Money Bayou Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $288,000

Money Bayou is the site of our tenth and final new contracts and this old Florida neighborhood is one of my favorite areas.  The area apparently appealed to a savvy shopper whose offer on this 2-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 720 square foot Key West cutie was accepted on Monday. This area is eligible for FEMA flood insurance coverage. When this first-tier home was built in the summer of ’05 it sold for $630,000. The current sellers picked it up in 2009 as a short sale for $265,000.

That does it for this week. Buyers are on the move so if you’re interested in either buying or selling let’s get together and talk. Call or text me on my cell at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . I’m loving hearing from so many of you. Thanks so much for taking time out of your schedule today to stop by and I hope to see you back again soon.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Feb. 15-21, 2014

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldCould winter finally be in our rear view mirror?  Our temps were back in the 70′s much of the week and it felt so good to enjoy being out in warm sunny weather again. Dorothy, I think we’re back in Florida. Our market heated up nicely as well, closing four sales and writing eight new contracts. Sellers listed seven new properties and changed prices on six others.  We ended the week with our inventory inching up by two, closing at 269, with 73 homes and 196 lots listed for sale in the Cape SAn Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market MLS.  We have a good bit of territory to cover today so let’s get rolling.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front and First Tier lots in Seagrass Under Contract Jan. 2014 with List Price of $339,900

The first of this week’s four sales is located in the Sea Grass subdivision, where two lots were sold together as a combined sale with an asking price of $339,900. The listing was for both lots 5 and 10, combining a first tier lot with buildable area in the X-flood zone with about 80′ behind the CCCL which allows permitting through just Gulf County and not the Florida DEP and a gulf front parcel providing full access to the beach. Combining the width of the first tier lot with the extra 10′ of the gulf front lots’ easement, totals over 53′ of waterfront – one of the widest lots in Seagrass.  The parties went to closing on Wednesday with the buyer taking title for $320,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot with Pilings Under Contract January 2014 with List Price of $99,000

Down on the southern end of the Cape San Blas peninsula by the rocks at Stumphole our next sale was a 50′ wide gulf front lot, this one with pilings and concrete driveway and pad in place. It was listed “As Is” for $99,000, and sold on Friday for $80,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot in Piney Woods Under Contract Jan. 18, 2013 as a Short Sale With a List Price of $21,900

We have another two-lot combo sale down on the south side of the Cape, these being two bank-owned  adjoining lots on McCosh Mill Road in Piney Woods subdivision. They’re irregularly shaped 0.20 acre X-zone lots three lots off Cape San Blas Road that were listed for $45,900. County records don’t record what the previous owner paid for them in 2005, but they have now sold for $35,000.

Gulf View Cape San Blas Townhouse Under Contract January 2014 with List Price of $249,000

About half a mile east on Cape San Blas road, our final sale is located in Cape Dunes, where with this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 1,780 square foot gulf view home went under contract on January 23rd with a list price $249,000. This little gulf front neighborhood was built in the early 1980′s and some of the building permits were pulled early enough for the structures to be grandfathered for FEMA flood insurance coverage. The sellers have owned this home since early 1994 when they bought it for $68,900, and they sold it on Thursday for $223,000.

Interior Lot at Cape San Blas Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $49,900

We’ll start our review of this week’s crop of eight new contracts up on yhe north end of the Cape in Sunset Pointe with this quarter-acre lot that went under contract on Friday with a list price of $49,900, not too far off the $55,000 the seller paid for it in the summer of 2010. Prior to that it had sold in 2003 for $200,000, and then again in mid-2005 for $437,000.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $33,500

Just outside the state park, tucked away behind popular Coneheads restaurant, our second contract is on the half-acre interior lot listed for $33,500. This seller ought to be fine, having owned it since 1993 when they picked it up for $11,500.

Ovation Bay Front Lot Under Contrat FEbruary 2014 with List Price of $79,900

Interest in Ovation remains strong with two contracts written there this week, the first of which is this half-acre parcel listed for $79,900. This is one of the lots sold during the developer’s deep discount sale in 2012 when this seller acquired it for $67,000.

Ovation Gulf Front Lot Under Contract Feb. 2014 with L ist Price of $215,000

Over on the gulf side of Ovation, this 0.40 acre gulf front lot went under contract Thursday with a list price of $215,000. In that same developer’s sale in 2012, they turned a number of similar gulf-front lots for $135,000 each. The seller bought this lot from the developer in 2005 for $1.275M.

Cape San Blas Interior Lot Under Contract with List Price of $80,000

We’ll head back down to the south side of the Cape for our fifth contract which is on a first tier gulf lot situated far back off the beach. It’s a bank-owned one-third-acre property measuring 53′ by 235′ and listed for $80,000.

Second Tier Gulf View Lot in Sweetwater Shores Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $50,000

Gulf View Lot on C-30 Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $$37,000

Almost directly across the street, our next contract is on a 70′ by 192′ lot listed for $37,00. This one has a long and interesting sales history, starting with the developer selling it in 1997 for $10,000, with those buyers turning it in 2001 for $25,000; those folks doubled their money the following year in 2002 for $52,200, and they then turned it yet again in 2005 for $225,000,

Indian Pass Lagoon Front Lot Under Contract February 2014 with List Price of $295,000

We’ll wrap things up out on Indian Pass where this 1.6-acre lagoon front lot went under contract last weekend with a list price of $295,000. The sellers purchased it in early $2005 for $164,500.

That does it for this week. We may have an abundance of lots still in the inventory, but the number of homes from which to choose has really come down, so if you’ve been thinking of buying a home at the beach now is a good time to start your search. I’ll be glad to help you with that, so call or text me at 850-227-5197, or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com .   I hope you have a wonderful week and thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by today.

Published by under Cape San Blas

For Sale and SoldFrom the Gulf Coast through the Atlantic Coast and all the way up into New England, the week leading up to Valentine’s Day has been strewn with storms of snow and ice.  Here along the Forgotten Coast we were fortunate to enjoy a relatively warm week with afternoons in the 50′s. Our visitors treated themselves to some sweet real estate, wrapping up four waterfront treats, and writing up five other sweet dealsSellers served up five new listings, and changed prices on nine others. Even with all that, our overall inventory remained unchanged,  closing the week once again at 267, with 71 homes and 196 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS market.  Let’s see what buyers fell in love with this week.

Our final sale is a lagoon front lot out along C-30 about 2 miles past the World Famous Indian Pass Raw Bar. This one-acre peaceful setting with 100 feet of waterfront was listed  at the end f December for $29,000 and went under contract within a week. The seller had owned it for quite some time so I didn’t find any sales history recorded.  He let it go on Tuesday for $26,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Lot Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $199,000

We’re back near the rocks at Stumphole for our review of this week’s five new contracts, beginning with this 100′ wide gulf front lot listed as a short sale for $199,000. Quite a sales history on this one. It sold back in February 2004 for $305,000, then again just five months later in July ’04 for $450,000. Those folks turned it yet again just seven months later in February 2005 for $650,000 to the current owners.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home at Stumphole Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $399,000

Our second contract was written on a place located a few hundred feet down the beach to just about where the rocks begin at Stumphole. It’s for a 3-bedrrom, 3-bath, 1,234 square foot gulf front home built in 2010 that went under contract Tuesday with a list price of $399,000, below the $400,000 the seller paid for it in late October 2011. When it was under construction in 2008 it was listed as a spec home for $799,000.

Cape San Blas Gulf Front Home Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $599,900

We’re heading back down to the south side of the Cape for our third contract, this time stopping gin at San Blas Plantation, a community adjacent to the east side of Jubilation. Here a spacious 4-bedroom, 4-bath, 3,026 square foot, gulf front home the sellers built in 2001 went under contract on Thursday with a list price of $599,900. It’s situated in an “X” zone on a lot with 75′ of waterfront.

Gulf Front Homesite Under Contract Feb. 2014 with List Price of $114,500

We’ll travel off the Cape again heading east on C-30 a few hundred yards to Brighton by the Sea where this homesite measuring 24′ by 90′ went under contract on Valentines Day with a list price of $114,500.  It’s approved for a 1700 square foot, 3-bedroom, 4-bath home, the plans for which are included with the sale but which will need to be re-engineered to comply with current code.  Same goes for the pilings already in place.

Gulf Front Home at Money Bayou Under Contrat Feb. 2014 with List Price of $669,900

We’ll mosey further out along the C-30 Corridor over in Money Bayou for our fifth and final new contract. I listed this 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath, 2315 square foot gulf front home at the beginning of January for $669,000. The seller had it built in 2004 on a 50′ wide gulf front lot she purchased in 1997 for $49,900, and on Tuesday we put her under contract.

That’ll do it for today.  I’m looking for more new listings to sell so if you’re thinking of selling, let’s talk. Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or email me at sherri@sherridodsworth.com. I hope wherever you are this weekend you’re warm and cozy. If you’re up there in blizzard country shoveling snow, keep in mind our “white drifts” are warm and sunny, and waiting for you here along Florida’s Forgotten Coast.
