Market Report July, 2018

The 30A, Miramar Beach, and Destin real estate markets continue to hum along with no appreciable fall-out in sight. The best word to describe the market is steady. And that is good. We’ve certainly seen strong appreciation since 2013 post downturn and in some pockets, Rosemary Beach, Gulf Front, and Alys Beach, prices are back to the peak of 2006. Unlike the 2006 peak, however, price jumps aren’t based on irrational exuberance, i.e., unfettered lending, fraud, and securitized loan debentures. In fact, the majority of high-end luxury purchases are cash and even the safest borrowers are highly scrutinized by lenders before loan approval. So it’s a different market even though prices have risen, a safer, more sane market. If you are interested in owning a second home on this coast waiting for prices to drop is likely a futile plan of action. I seriously doubt backward motion is happnin’. Prices should continue to rise if even just slightly in a healthy way.
