Happy to report there was no let up in activity again this week turning in another strong showing, closing six sales, writing up six new contracts, adding twelve new listings and posting three price changes. With all that, our inventory grew by three, closing the week at 246, with 73 homes and 173 lots listed for sale in the Cape San Blas, Indian Pass and C-30 Corridor market. Lots to look at today so let’s get started.
We kick off our review of this week’s six sales with a 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 2,007 square foot unit with an elevator listed for $293,000. The sellers bought it in March just last year for $255,000 and made a bit of a profit on Monday picking up a check at closing for $278,000. In 2002 it sold for $335,000.
Down on the south side of the Cape in Jubilation someone saw a good opportunity for a coastal retreat in this 50? by 90? “X” zone Jubilation lot that went under contract two weeks ago with a list price of $59,900, and signed it over to the new owners for $45,000, a real bargain compared to the $310,000 it went for in 2004. Jubilation is now a gated community, and includes a gulf front pool and deeded gulf access for all property owners.
Our next two sales are on nearby McCosh Mills Road in Piney Woods beginning with this 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,224 square foot home went under contract in late January with a list price of $399,000. The sellers purchased the rental home in the summer of 2012 for $250,000, and turned the keys over to the new owners this week for $370,000.
A few lots over, the parties closed on this 57? by 82? lot listed for $79,000. It sits catty cornered to the community pool and is in an “X” zone, and should afford a gulf view from a home built on pilings. The seller purchased it in the summer of 2014 for $50,000, and sold it on Tuesday for $60,000.
When you turn off Cape San Blas Road onto C-30 heading towards town, Treasure Bay is the second subdivision on your left and it’s the site of our fifth sale, a 100? by 1,314?, 2.9-acre bay front lot listed for $159,900. The lot lines extend far out into the bay which accounts for that seemingly high acreage. The sellers bought it in 2012 for $89,000 and signed it over to the new owners on Monday for $145,000. In 2003 it sold for a $196,000. This is a quiet little residential community with nice single family homes, most of which are owner-occupied. FEMA flood insurance is available here.
Our sixth and final sale is over in Gulf Pines where buyers had their offer accepted on a 100? by 252?, 0.59-acre first tier lot listed for $149,000. The sellers bought it in mid-2012 for $119,500 from folks who had paid $165,000 for it in late 2009.
To take a look at our six new contracts we head back over to Seacliffs on the north side of the Cape where sellers accepted an offer on their 4-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 2,007 square foot townhome with elevator listed for $298,000. The sellers purchased the home in February 2013 for $182,000.
Just a bit south of Rish Park on the corner of Cape San Blas Road and Avalon Drive, contract number two is on a 110′ by 130′, third-of-an-acre lot listed for $135,000. This “X” zone lot offers views of both the gulf and bay. The sellers purchased it in the summer of 2002 for $95,000.
Just a few blocks further south, buyers penned an offer on this 85′ by 400′, half-acre bay front lot overlooking Pig Island listed for $199,900. It’s in an AE flood plain.
Just a bit north of Scallop Cove, contract number four is on a 4-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath, 1,620-square-foot, gulf front home on Sugar Loaf Lane listed for $689,000. It was built in 2001 and underwent extensive renovations in 2015, the year after the sellers bought it for $655,000. It’s a good rental property, grossing $116,000 in 2016. For those looking to purchase properties in Florida with the aim of using it as the source of a second income, perhaps the services of property management companies jacksonville fl may be of some use as trying to navigate landlord duties alone can often be difficult and time-consuming; having support like this can mitigate that and even maximize your investment.
Seems as if we’ve been seeing this scene every week for several week now as one after another of the lots along this lane have gone under contract and sold. This week’s model is a 100′ by 150′, third-of-an-acre, “X” zone lot listed for $40,000.
Our sixth and final new contract is in Dunes Club where buyers had their offer accepted on a 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,176 square foot gulf front condo listed for $329,000. The sellers bought the unit in 2004, the year it was built, for $325,000.
