I'm not sure who owns the property-- if it's city land, it might well be stocked. I know fishing in it is very popular right now. I think it's raised the nearby home values, honestly. Everyone loves the pond. | http://ponderosapinescampground.com/amenities.html... more
If you are referring to the middle of Destin to Miramar Beach I would say about 5 to 7 miles, but they sort of run together. You would be hard pressed to tell where one begins and the other ends except for the county line which will be noted on highway 98. Destin is in Okaloosa county and Miramar Beach is in Walton county. You will be aware when you get your tax bill too as Okaloosa taxes are about double those of Walton county.... more
There are actually two homes available in Sandestin on this street. Both are similar in size, price and age. The one you selected has been on the market less than one week. Get back to me and we can discuss a showing of either or both. I specialize in this market and can also help with other homes here.
Condotels are units that have a fully staffed front desk and rent out rooms for short (less than a week) periods of time. We used to have problems getting financing for them but there are a variety of programs today that can fit. Call me for details.... more
You need to give a little more information about the property in question. What is the name of the complex? If it is a short term rental typically it will include utilities. If it is long term you need to check the lease to see what is covered.... more
You can't live in a gated resort, where this property is located. You may like south walton area near the beach. But will have to buy some acreage to have the animals. This are has many animal rights organizations you could join and help. I would like to introduce you to my friend Laurie hardwick Hood who has Alaqua in Freeport. Her place is fabulous will all kinds of animals. If you do facebook look her up. I am not gay but considered to be a very compasionate Real Estate Broker.

If you really want somone gay, then I recommend Keith Flippo. He is terrific. Good look.... more
I might sound biased but the waters and beaches around Sandestin are the best I have ever experienced. I work with investors interested in buying condo's on the beach. I make sure we visit the beaches each day to drive home the fact that they did not make up the name Emerald Coast. The water is crystal clear right now and the beaches are in the best shape I have ever seen.... more
Plenty of properties are entering the market almost daily. Call me if you are still interested. i specialize in second and vacation homes.

It will take a while for properties to reach the 05 levels. But saying that, the saying is that they are not making anymore of that stuff. I recently watched an older house getting leveled to make room for a new construction.... more
I visited Seascape recently and the number of available units on the market was cut in half from last month. These units are among the tallest in the area and will be for a long time. They are set off the beach with deeded beach access. Great views and very solid construction... more
My advice to any second home or investment buyers is to get a real good idea of your long term goal. Cash payment or financing plays a good part in that decision. Vacation Rentals are very good seasonally but long term investment housing is in very short supply. Some (read alot) of people need housing but can not buy because of bad credit.... more
Comps over about six months old are not really helpful. The market has really turned around here, It is tough finding accurate comps but it can be done if you widen the search to similiar areas. This is where knowing the area really helps... more
