What difference a week makes. After logging record numbers last week, this week buyers took a breather, with no sales and only two new contracts, seven new listingsand seven price changes. Even our inventory remained static, staying put at 391, with 108 homes and 283 lots for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass, and C-30 Corridor market. Let’s take a look at what caught buyers eyes this week.
The first of our two new contracts is on this 2-bedroom, 2-bath, 900 square foot gulf view beach cottage in Feather Sound on Cape San Blas. It went under contract on Wednesday as a short sale with a list price of $249,000, having last sold in August 2004 for $438,000. The owners have been trying to sell it since mid 2006 when they initially listed it for $619,000. The county has it valued pretty low at $155,468.
Our second sale is on a bank-owned bay view lot at Eventide on the south side of the Cape, which went under contract on Tuesday with a list price of $20,000, exactly one half of the county’s assessed value of $40,000. This is one of several bank-owned properties in this subdivision which the developer had never been able to sell. There are no contingencies to be met so it should close pretty quickly.
There are several appealing possibilities among our seven new listings to check out, such as a 100’wide lagoon front lot for $50,000, or a first tier bay view lot on Sandbar Drive in Treasure Bay subdivision listed for $34,000.
As for our seven price changes, I’m not seeing anything genuinely exciting; they’re moving in the right direction, but I still think our actual sale prices are góing to be lower than what we’re seeing with these.
Quick as a falsh, we’re done. Quite a contrast from last week’s marathon.
