This bright two bedroom, two bath Indian Lake condo in Destin Florida just sold as a short sale. The unit was fully tiled and had a vaulted ceiling in the living room. There was a tenant in place, who was retained by the new investor buyer. The Indian Lake condo association offers amenities such as a community pool, gym, clubhouse, on-site leasing office, payground and BBQ areas. This sale was a Bank of America Co-op short sale, which means it was purportedly pre-approved.  The process, however, took over 120 days, so use caution when purchasing or selling a Bank of America Co-op sale, if you think you will be able to close sooner. 4020 Indian Lake, Unit 371, Destin Florida sold for $61,801.

I go on a lot of home tours and this was my pick of the tour today.  It is actually priced extremely well considering that the home does not have one thing wrong with it and was meticulous in every way.  It can accomodate a 46' foot boat on an 8,000 pound Breeze boat lift.  Selling furnished, this home is a steal of a deal for $1,495,000.  For more information call Kelly Klein, Lifeguard Real Estate, Inc.  850-420-2480 or email me at Kelly@KellyKleinSoldMine.com Broker / Owner Lifeguard Real Estate, Inc.

  “ We want to wait until after the Holidays to put our home up for sale.” Every year I hear that mantra from potential Destin Florida real estate sellers.  Well, guess what? So does everyone else. Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t wait to list your Destin home now, instead of January: 1.       Less Competition.  What’s that? When you sell your property, you are competing against all the other properties for sale that your target buyer is looking for.  For example, if you have a condo priced under $400,000, with more than 2000 square feet, all the other Destin condos with those criteria are vying for the same buyer.  If you have a single family home on the beach on Scenic Highway 98, all those other beachfront houses compete against yours. In December, there are far fewer for sal...

I just received a call from a guy wanting to book my Destin Florida beachfront condo for their next vacation. The caller(Mark) told me that he and his wife love the resort so much that they got married on the beach at the resort and have returned year after year for their vacation(10 years). They were driving from Birmingham but moved to Texas a few years ago but that hasn't interrupted their love afair with the Pelican Beach Resort in Destin. I asked Mark why he called me and he said he and his wife always pick out the nicest place at the resort and this vacation they needed a 1 bedroom condo(sleeps 6). He actually booked for the end of May 2012 because he didn't want this unit #P1004 to get away from him. My wife and I bought this Pelican Beach condo over 2 years ago and completely r...

    Your Destin Florida home is for sale as a "short sale". You're about $300,000 "upside down".  You just received an offer you feel is too low.  I agree - it is a waste of time to send a contract significantly lower than market value to your short sale lender. So you counter the buyer's offer, they accept, and you now have a contract. What happens next? 1. We send the contract with a preliminary settlement statement and all your financials to  your mortgage lender.   2. Your lender orders a Broker Price Opinion or Appraisal on your property. If the appraisal comes back much higher than the contract price, the lender will counter the offer. The buyer can accept or reject that.  (Most of my short sales are approved because my pricing is pretty good, and I counsel my sellers to counter i...

    What do I love about this home I just sold on Wekiva Cove in  Emerald Lakes, Destin Florida? Hmmm.... It has style! Lots of it.  Not a standard floorplan, but interesting hallways, cathedral and raised ceilings and a great layout.  The kitchen is a stunner with contemporary cabinets, quartz countertops, eclectic lighting and stainless stell appliances. The living room has gas fireplace and is partially open to the kitchen to add spaciousness. The tiled Florida room is very cool and relaxing with ceiling fans. Master bedroom is private. Master bath has whirlpool tub, separate sit-down shower, and walk-in closet. Other features include: crown molding, security system, motion detector lights surround sound, hurricane panels for the whole house, new air conditioner.  What else?  Emerald...

October is just a wonderful time of the year to visit in Destin, FL and the surrounding area.  Parasailing is just one of the many activities that you can do.  The Destin Fishing Rodeo is a month long event and the Mullett Festival in Niceville is coming up along with the Seeing Red Wine Festival in Rosemary Beach.  Whatever your pleasure, with cooler night temperatures you will need a wrap (40s) but during the day you will love being warmed by the sun reaching mid 70s.  Hope to see you in Destin soon.
