Hi Wademark53,

Your best bet is to call a local Realtor for the area of Destin.
They will be able to send you via email current listings with your criteria.

Good Luck and Welcome to Florida

Buying a home is a big decision in peoples lives so there are several important things: 1. LOCATION is definitely a factor, especially for buyers with kids as they want to make sure the schools in the area are good. 2. Some buyers like projects, while others want move in ready so it's important to know the cost of repairs or remodeling cost so you know you can afford the changes and still be within your BUDGET so that you can quickly get your house ready to enjoy. 3. Buying a home is an investment, and we want our buyers to be HAPPY with their decision. ... more

I think some may look for experienced Realtors, but most just want someone who really knows the area and doesn't waste their time. To me a step in the right direction while trying to find a good Realtor is seeing which ones answer the phone when you call, or return your call when you leave a message. If you trust someone to list your home, then you have to know that they will answer their calls....It could be a buyer calling about your home! ... more

Of course! When interest rates are low, investors are more likely to buy property and be able to extract a higher ROI, which means more money to invest in more projects. It allows people to maximize profits on their real estate investment with less of a burden. ... more

I like to use an app called financial calculator. You can find it at and it allows you to put in all sorts of variables when determining paying off various loans. It comes in handy and is very user friendly. In the app version (available on Google Play and the Apple Store) you can type in your loan amount, interest rate, length of loan (in years and months) and it will automatically come up with your payment. There is a spot where you can put in an extra payment and will calculate not only how many months you'll save but also the amount of interest saved. Let me know if this was helpful! :) ... more
