Cape San Blas Real Estate Week in Review – Nov. 28 – Dec. 4, 2009
I’m hard pressed to believe I was in the Sunshine State this week with all the cold and rain (9 inches on Wednesday alone), but even that wasn’t enough to dampen or chill our red hot market, as we had what is our best week in the past two and ...

March 1 Deadline To File For Homestead Exemption
On January 29, Floridians went to the polls and voted for a Constitutional Amendment which significantly impacts both homestead and non-homestead properties.

Shut Up and Pay Your Taxes
We may pay obscenely high taxes for the privilege of owning property in Gulf County but don’t go thinking you’re entitled to any services in return. That’s the reality of living in a county without at-large voting; we’re held hostage to the whims of five commissioners each protecting and only ...
