No evidence of global warming around the Cape this morning – IT’S COLD OUTSIDE! It was 40 out here on the peninsula when I woke up, and according to weather.com it was 35 in town. There’s been a bit of a chill on our local real estate market this week as well, as for the first time since I started this column fifteen months ago, we had no sales and no new contracts. Even our inventory remains unchanged with a total of 391 active listings in the MLS within Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and the C-30 Corridor, with 164 homes and 227 lots. What little activity there was consisted of four new listings, eight price changes, and six expired unsold.
There’s an absolute clear winner for my pick of the week in this week’s four new new listings – just in time for Christmas, how about a half acre, 50′ gulf front lot at Indian Pass for only $299,000? I’ll save a few thousand words of copy and just show you some photos. This is a gorgeous piece of property.
At 0.57 acres, there is plenty of room to build your dream get-away beach home.
I’ll bet this one goes under contract and closes by Christmas at a price like this.
There is an equally clear winner among this week’s eight price changes, this one a 76′ wide lagoon front lot on C-30 fronting the Indian Pass lagoon, slashed from $149,000 to $78,000.
The sellers are highly motivated; according to the county records, they paid $259,000 for it in January 2005. This large 0.6 acre lot is partially cleared and in a FEMA eligible area. Some lucky person is going to get themselves a very picturesque setting for their weekend getaway.
