I live in Fort Walton Beach and the FWB area is definitely quieter with regard to spring break. Destin and Pensacola Beach are "busier" and Panama City Beach is probably the most "active" in the panhandle.

There are three High Schools in this area at this time. All are great and have different personalities. Waivers can be obtained to attend a different school but you lose the option of the public busing at that time.... more
There are 40 units currently for sale in the Waterscape complex. Only three are in the C building. The asking prices range from $250K to $970K. Some of those have been on the market for quite a while. There were 33 units sold in 2013 at an average sq ft price of 281 a square foot. Your unit is a top floor unit and depending on the upgrades. It should comp out above 350 at this time. I would need to preview the property and assess interior condition and furnishings.
I can do an in-depth analysis if you care.

I can give you more details if you are interesed in viewing the properties.... more
