Destin Florida Condos-Sterling Sands People that visit Destin Florida have a habit of being second home owners in the area. With beautiful beaches, a mild year round climate (okay July and August can be "interesting"), and world class fishing Destin has something for everyone.But where to start, all of the buildings sort of look the same? And to make matters more confusing most have similar names. Let's take a closer look at Sterling Sands Condominium. Key Points Of Sterling Sands  "Mid-rise" building featuring 8 floors Fewer units means more elbow room on the beach!

Destin Florida Real Estate Advice- Pricing Property In A Tough MarketPricing real estate in Destin Florida the last few years was easy. Simply pick the most expensive property, add 10% to that number. Then presto! Multiple offers and a happy closing a few weeks later.Was such a model sustainable? Nope. Was a real estate environment like that even desirable? Again, probably not. Now that we are in a more normal market, let's look at how to best position your Destin Florida home on the price scale... 1) Price right from the start- Gone are the days of "testing" the market. Homes that are price too high collect nothing other than days on market. From there the Destin Home seller ends up chasing the market down (usually means multiple price reductions). 2) Price based on what has recently S...

This was a new one for me.  You've heard of FOMO, but have you heard of FOMU?Chances are, that project you've been putting off really isn't as difficult as you believe it is. With the right research, tools, preparation and self-belief you'll be on the way to DIY bliss. I am not sure what your handymans skills sit but I have done some stuff over the years that after the fact looked very home made.  But I have hired the Pros from Dover and witnessed the same thing with a very much lighter pocket book.  So it all depends.  Questions about what home improvement projects are worth it when it comes to boosting resale value?  I am amazed, but have come to grips that property values do not really increase by the cost of the home improvement.  There is a big difference between home renovations a...

Can I AirBnB My Destin Florida Home? Searching for an income producing property near Destin Florida? Prefer to handle some of the property management and marketing yourself? For many home owners AirBnB is a popular platform. When searching for properties along the Emerald Coast, buyers need to make sure AirBnB and other short term rentals are allowed. As of this Writing, (July 2024) Destin Florida does not allow AirBnb within the city limits. The good news is several area communities do. Even with those, care must be taken to confirm with the home owner's Association (HOA) that the subdivision doesn't have their own layer of restrictions. In short, potential buyers need to do their due diligence. The only constant with city/subdivision rules is that they are subject to change. Questions...

Advice For Selling Your Destin Florida Condo Thanks to beautiful beaches and world class fishing, Destin Florida gets visitors from all over the country. With this attention, selling an Emerald Coast condo should be a breeze. Let's examine some steps I advise Destin Condo owners to take in order to get the most money...1) Professional Photos are key- Most Destin area condo buyers start the process online. Hence it makes sense to put your marketing bucks into things that make your unit stand out. The above photo centers on the fireplace (rare for the area), but those windows steal the show. Imagine a cool fall evening with a fire going and watching boats on the harbor (see how that works). 2) Deep Clean The Unit- This Service exceeds the weekly between guests experience. Windows, door fr...

Common Issues Facing The Destin Florida Real Estate MarketThanks to abundant natural beauty and several key military bases, the greater Destin Fl real estate market remains popular. Even so, without proper guidance Emerald Coast buyers and sellers may experience some turbulence. Here are a few issues we are dealing with Summer 2024. 1) Property Insurance- Due to recent storms (and the potential for more), insurance companies began raising rates and in some cases leaving Florida all together. This left buyers scrambling to find affordable protection during escrow. As of 2024 this has improved, in fact several new insurance companies have ENTERED the market. But gone are the days buyers would ring up their local insurance provider a week before closing. This is now moved to THE BEGINNING ...
