Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Dec. 21-27, 2019

Published by under Cape San Blas

Santa visited the Forgotten Coast while making his rounds this week and brought three lucky people a place to call their own at the beach. Four savvy shoppers put contracts on prime coastal properties, two people listed their properties for sale, but not a single seller opted for a Christmas mark-down.  Our inventory shed six, closing at 286, with 67 homes and 219 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

We start our review of this week’s three sales up in Secluded Dunes, the northernmost subdivision on the Cape. Buyers celebrated Christmas by picking up the keys to this 3-bedroom, 3-1/2- bah, 2400 square foot first tier home on the 23rd. The home was built in 2010 and last sold in early 2017 for $660,000. It was listed for $749,900 and sold for $708,000.

Our second sale is on Haven Road in Ocean Haven about a mile north of Scallop Cove. Here buyers took title to this 66′ by 215′, 0.31-acre first tier lot on Monday. It was listed for $169,900 and sold for $163,500 cash.  The seller is one of the original developers of the subdivision so no sales history.

Our third and final sale is a 60′ by 417′, .574-acre gulf front lot on Griffin Avenue over in Money Bayou. The sellers bought it in early 2000 for $194,500, had it listed for $309,000, and signed over the title to the new owners on Friday for $295,000.


The first of our four new contracts is on a gorgeous gulf front lot in Sunset Beach Estates, a beautiful community on the Cape about 2 miles south of the state park.This is one of the widest subdivision gulf front lots on the Cape, with 63’ of waterfront and a depth of 945’ for a little over 0.6 of an acre.  This lot was listed for $679,000.  With this contract, all of the gulf front lots have now been spoken for, but there are still beautiful first tier lots available for $299,000.

Our second contract takes us to the south side of the Cape to San Blas Plantation where sellers accepted on offer on their 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,450 square foot first tier home. It was built in 2005 on a .39-acre lot. It is listed for $529,000; I found no significant sales data in the property appraiser’s data.

Our final two contracts take us over to Indian Pass, starting with this 3-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath, 2,450 gulf front home built in 2014 on 68′ of waterfront on Chickasaw Lane in Indian Summer. The sellers bought it in April of 2018 for $932,500.

We’ll wrap things up today with this 5-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 1,970 square foot gulf front cottage on the Indian Pass peninsula. The sellers bought the 50′ by 430′, half-acre lot in late 2017 for $255,000 and completed construction on the home earlier this year. They have the rental home listed for $849,000.

With that, we’ll bring 2019 and this decade to a close. I wish you and your loved ones good health and happiness in the New Year, and I want to thank all of you I’ve worked with, met with and talked with this past year who have helped to make this year such a memorable one for me.  Have a safe holiday and thanks so much for taking time during this busy season to stop by. See ya next year! Bring on the Roaring Twenties 2.0!

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Dec. 14-20, 2019

Published by under Cape San Blas

‘Twas the week before Christmas and from the gulf to the bay, real estate was selling in a wonderful way. We closed seven sales and added one new contract. Sellers added twelve new listings and changed prices on three others. Our inventory took a bit of a leap, growing by nine, closing the week at 292, with 72 homes and 220 lots offered for sale in Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor MLS listings. Let’s take a look at what’s moving.

We’ll begin our review of this week’s seven sales on the north end of the Cape in Barrier Dunes, home to our first two sales, starting with this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,448 square foot cottage built in 2000. The sellers bought it in 2004 for $390,000, had it listed for $359,000, and sold it for on Tuesday for $347,500.

Over on Myrtle Drive towards the front of Barrier Dunes, new owners took possession of this Hurricane Michael damaged fixer upper on Tuesday for $230,000. It is one of the few units in this townhouse community located in an X flood zone and it did not flood during Michael, but instead suffered wind damage. It is a 1,601 square foot, townhouse with 2-bedrooms plus a super loft, and 3-1/2 bathrooms. The sellers bought it in October 2015 for $275,000 and had it listed As Is for $240,000.

Roughly two miles south of Barrier Dunes is Hibiscus Bay to Beach home to our third sale, a roughly half-acre bay front lot with 100′ of waterfront. This picturesque little community spans from the bay to the gulf, and includes a bay walkover, community pool, and walkover to the beach complete with a gazebo for relaxing while taking in those gorgeous sunset views. This lot belongs to the developer’s family, so no sales history on it. She had it listed for $235,000 and signed over the title to the new owners this week for $210,000.

We’ll travel south about a mile to Catamaran Drive which is just two blocks north of the Trading Post for our next sale, a 95′ by 143′, third-of-an-acre second tier, X zone lot. It is located in Feather Sound which provides deeded gulf access to property owners. There is no HOA or HOA fees.  The sellers bought it in early 2017 for $135,000, had it listed for $169,900, and signed over the title to the new owners on Wednesday for $150,000 cash.

Our next sale is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,726 square foot Bayfront house with 151′ of waterfront on roughly 1.3 acres. It was formerly home to Happy Ours Kayak Tours which has been getting visitors out exploring the bay for over 20 years.  The owners are ready to retire and sold the business in October for $75,000. They had the home listed for $589,000 and sold it on Friday for $565,000.

We will leave the Cape and travel east along C-30 for about two miles to Treasure Shores to this lovely 4-bedroom, 3-1/2-bath, 3,271 square foot gulf front home listed for $1.15M.  It went under contract just seven days after entering the MLS indicating it was priced right. It was built in the late 90’s and has changed hands several times since then. The original owner lost it to the bank who subsequently sold it in early 2012 for $649,000. That buyer sold it to the current owner in mid-2016 for $879,000, and they in turn sold it on Monday for $1,050,000.

Our seventh and final sale takes us over to Seminole Street on Indian Pass where the parties went to the closing table on this 75′ by 110′, 0.194-acre lot listed for $109,000. The sellers bought it in early 2008 for $155,000 from owners who paid $350,000 for it in 2005.  This property is in Indian Pass Beach Subdivision which is grandfathered in for FEMA flood insurance eligibility.  It sold on Tuesday for $105,000.

Our one and only new contract is on a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,400 square foot house situated on 50′ of gulf front. It’s located on Jamaica Drive back behind the Trading Post. The sellers bought it in 2013 in a short sale for $325,000, and have it listed for $729,000.

That brings us up to date for the week. The weather forecast says Santa is set to bring us bring us sunny Christmas weather in the mid-60’s so it looks like a perfect beachy holiday is in store. I wish you a warm and wonderful holiday celebration with family and friends.  Have a very Merry Christmas, and I hope to see you back here next weekend for our final review of the year.

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Dec. 7-13, 2019

Published by under Cape San Blas

 If this week’s activity is any indicator, Santa has plans for a number of good boys and girls to find a place at the beach on their Christmas gift list this season. In a traditionally slow real estate month, we closed three sales and wrote up three new contracts, added seven new listings and made six price changes. The inventory closed at 283, with 71 houses and 212 lots for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

The first of our three sales is a second tier, gulf view lot on Bamba Way, just south of Coneheads Restaurant. It’s a uniquely-shaped quarter-acre parcel that comes with deeded gulf access. The seller bought it in mid-2015 for $70,000, had it listed for $152,000, and sold it this week for $145,000.

Our second sale is on Leeward Street in Cape Breezes, one of the original subdivisions on the Cape, platted in the late 70’s about a mile south of the state park. It is the only neighborhood on the Cape to have thus far been removed from CBRA and therefore eligible for FEMA flood insurance. There are recorded covenants, but no HOA or HOA fees, the best of both worlds! All properties convey with deeded gulf and bay access. This 100′ by 240′, half-acre bayfront lot with a dock was purchased in mid-2017 for $302,000, listed for $359,000, and sold on Monday for $332,000. There is currently another roughly half-acre lot listed for sale in this neighborhood fronting Cape San Blas Road with nice homes on either side, listed for $124,900. Seller wants to close by the end of this year so bring me a good cash offer!

Our third sale takes us over to Indian Pass to this 51′ wide, 0.78-acre gulf front lot. When the seller bought it in early 2015 for $400,000 it had a structure on it which is no longer there. It was listed for $284,900 and sold for $250,000.

The first of our three new contracts is on Seahorse Lane just a few streets north of the Trading Post.  On Wednesday sellers accepted an offer on their 102′ by 106′, quarter-acre gulf view lot which they bought in early 2016 for $135,000 and have it listed for $169,000.

Our second new contract takes us down to the south side of the Cape where this commercial office building went under contract with a list price of $475,000. The 2,385 square foot building is situated on 2 acres of land and last sold in 2012 in a bank sale for $221,000.

Our third and final new contract is on Polaris Drive in Surfside Estates. Buyers snapped up this 3-bedroom, 2-1/2-bath, 1,305 square foot gulf view home just a few days after it appeared in the MLS sporting an attractive $429,000 price tag.  The sellers bought the quarter-acre lot on which it is situated in early 2016 for $55,000.

That does it for this week. There’s still time to wrap a nice property up in time to surprise someone this Christmas with a little piece of paradise along the Forgotten Coast. If you’d like more info on these or other opportunities call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot me an email to sherri@sherridodsworth.com . Have a great week, and since the Army-Navy Classic kicks off at 3 p.m. on Saturday . . .

GO NAVY – BEAT ARMY!!!!

Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Nov. 30 – Dec. 6, 2019

Published by under Cape San Blas

The Thanksgiving-week visitors have gone, so there have been far fewer people around the Cape since last Saturday, but we still had a decent week, especially for this time of year when things typically start slowing down a bit. Nobody went to the closing table but buyers wrote up three new contracts. Sellers added added 15 new listings, and entered 5 price changes. Our inventory shed only one, closing at 286, with 68 homes, 213 lots, 4 commercial properties and 1 long-term rental MLS offerings in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor Market. Let’s take a look at what caught buyers’ eyes.

The first of our three new contracts is on Haven Road in Ocean Haven about a mile north of Scallop Cove. Here buyers penned a deal on this 66′ by 215′, 0.31-acre first tier lot listed for $169,900.  The seller is one of the original developers of the subdivision so no sales history.

About a mile and a quarter down Cape San Blas Road, our second new contract is on this 50′ wide gulf front lot. The seller bought it in 2002 for $265,000 and has it listed for $299,000. You can see the wide new beach along this stretch from our recently completed beach renourishment.

Our third and final new contract takes us over to Indian Pass to this 50′ by 500′, 0.6-acre gulf front lot listed for $264,000. The property apparently hasn’t changed hands for quite some time as there is no sales data recorded on the property appraiser’s site.

And that’s a wrap for this week. Good to see property is still moving this late in the season. If you have been thinking of buying or selling property along Florida’s Forgotten Coast, I can help. Call or text me at 850-227-5197 or shoot 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 – Nov. 23-29, 2019

Published by under Cape San Blas

I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving with family and friends. It was a gorgeous day on the Cape, balmy, sunny and clear. Lots of people here for the holiday, with this traditionally being when our many absentee owners who rent their homes block the week out for them and their families to use. Even with travel, turkey, football and fishing on visitors’ minds, we still managed to carve out one sale and serve up three new contracts, thirteen new listings, and price changes on two others. Accordingly, virtually no change in our inventory, shedding only one to close at 287, ending the week with 66 homes, 216 lots, 4 commercial and 1 long term rental MLS offerings in the Cape San Blas, Indian Summer, and the C-30 Corridor market.

Our one and only closed sale finds us on the north end of the Cape on Flamingo Drive in Findlay Shores where the parties want to the closing table for this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,503 square foot gulf-view home. It has wonderful gulf views throughout, is very nicely furnished, and was built in 2018 on an X-zone lot.  It was listed for $599,900, and the new owners picked up the keys at closing on Monday for $575,000.

Now on to our three new contracts, the first of which is on the north end of the Cape in Barrier Dunes. On Thursday buyers had their offer accepted on this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,448 square foot cottage listed for $359,000. It was built in 2000, and the sellers bought it in 2004 for $390,000.

We’ll head off the Cape for our second contract which is on a gulf front lot in the little subdivision known as Curve at the Cape, the first neighborhood you come to on your right after leaving the Cape heading towards Indian Pass.  On Thursday, sellers accepted an offer on their 59′ by 450′, roughly half-acre gulf front lot listed for $259,900. Interesting sales history on this one. The sellers bought it in late 2009 for $212,000 from a seller who paid $640,000 for it in early 2004.

Our third and final new contract takes us over to Seminole Street on Indian Pass where the parties shook hands on this 75′ by 110′, 0.194-acre lot listed for $109,000. The sellers bought it in early 2008 for $155,000 from owners who paid $350,000 for it in 2005.  This property is in Indian Pass Beach Subdivision which is grandfatherd in for FEMA flood insurance eligibility.

That does it for this week. Since this weekend officially kicks off the Christmas shopping season, if you’re considering a place at the beach for that special someone on your list, by all means let me know and I’ll gladly play the part of Santa’s helper to help you find it. You can call or text me at 850-227-5197 or email to sherri@sherridodsworth. Have a great week, don’t overdo it on those leftovers, and thanks so much for stopping by today.

Reminder – If you would like to read this with the links to the various listings, I can only email them to you now with our new MLS which I’ll be glad to do. Just let me know by sending me a request to sherri@sherridodsworth.com and I’ll set you up to receive my blog post with the links each week.
