Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review - Jan. 22-28, 2011

For Sale and Sold SignHmmm . . . seems we’re into rotating weeks of activity right now. Two weeks ago, no activity. Last week – tons of activity. This week . . . quiet again, with only one sale, no new contracts, seven new listings and seven price changes. However, I’ve been super-busy this week having written a number of offers, have two closings scheduled for Friday, and several colleagues have reported similar action, so I’m expecting to see another jump in activity to report here next Saturday. This week our inventory nudged up by five, closing the week at 348, with 137 homes and 211 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market.

Cape San Blas Interior Home Sold January 25, 2011 for $220,500

Our one sale was this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,248 square foot interior home on the south side of the Cape in San Blas Plantation. It last sold inDecember 2002 for $210,000 which is real close to the $220,500 it sold for this week. The sellers had it listed for $259,000 so it sounds like everyone did well on this one. Everyone except the county property appraiser who turned out to be way off, having it at a way low estimate of value of $145,809. The home has been very well maintained and offers a glimpse of the beach from its deck and from the south-facing bedroom windows.

I will be showing property all day in Apalach on Saturday and so am writing this Friday night after a very long and productive day filled with showing property, writing several offers, tracking seven others, and keeping everything on track to get those other two contracts to closing. I haven’t had enough time to properly analyze properties for Picks of the Week, so rather than just select something for the sake of doing so, which I will never do, I suggest just taking a look at our seven new listings and seven price changes and if something catches your eye, let me know and we’ll take a closer look together. I’ll be on my cell this weekend, 850-227-5197, or send a message to [email protected] .

We’re supposed to be sunny and pushing 70 degrees this weekend and I am SO ready for it! I hope you’re warm and sunny where you are, but if you’re snowed in or just plain cold, you can always escape to the Cape for relief, and I’ll be glad to help you plan your get away. Hope to hear from you soon. Take care, and thanks for stopping by today.

Verizon works in areas of the Cape but there are pockets where it dies out. A number of people have been telling me that AT&T has recently added a new tower nearby and their reception is pretty good on the Cape now. Let me know if I can help if you decide to call our area home. It's a great place to live. Sherri

Hello Sherri! We are looking at a move to the Cape. We understand the cell phone coverage is "splotchy" at best. What cell phone company do you utilize? What is the most popular cell phone company (e.g. with the best coverage...considering). Verizon? We'll depend mainly on a land-line -- but any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very kindly for any input you can provide. Warm regards, Beth
