This is not affecting any of my buyers. It is not a concern for them since it didn't come down to Southwest Florida.

Some canceling contracts after seeing oil slick in Gulf
Several Realtors and brokers report home buyers are either shying away from buying homes on the beach or requiring a 60-day guarantee that oil won’t impact the beach before signing on the dotted line.

No traces of oil have washed up on Bay County’s sugar-white sand. Still, some investors are canceling buys, especially of condominiums, Commander Century 21 Real Estate Realtor Charlie Commander said.

Prudential Shimmering Sands Realty Realtor Art Lester said people are concerned about buying property on the beach, and his company is seeing more beach homes being listed for sale.

Great question - I'm all the way up the coast in NJ, but I do have a condo on Florida's west coast. I'll be interested to read the responses.
