Crestview is a fast growing area due to the lack of available land for development in Fort Walton Beach. Depending where you would be stationed, Eglin or Hurlburt Field, Crestview would be closer for your commute back and forth to the base. Currently the trend seems to be that the further south you are from I-10 the better your chances of holding your value in the home. There are many places that are made up of newer homes, due to the growth that we have seen since 2004. If you are stationed at Hurlburt Field, Navarre would be a better location for you. Navarre currently seems to be a sleeping community and if things continue, it can be the next "Destin" in the area. Lots of room to expand and typically you can get more home for your money per square foot. One of the biggest Home Owners Association is located in Holley By The Sea. Over 4900 property owners with access to a multi million dollars facilities available to the property owners and guest only.
