I absolutely agree with jhcox. Gulf Breeze has very low elevations and there was a lot of flooding during Ivan so if you decide to buy there, especially on the south side, make sure you get a mold inspection. It's cheaper in the gulf breeze area to get on the gulf and it's close to the base but flooding is a big problem.

The Tiger Pointe area is nice, but some parts of it flood during hurricanes. Quite a bit of the Tiger Point Subdivision did during hurricane Ivan. Water came all the way up to Lowes rear parking lot. The areas on the North side of hwy 98 are less prone to flooding. This home is in the Bay Woods Subdivision on the north side of Hwy 98 and has always remained high and dry.

Love to be near the water, but don't want to worry about sleeping in it.

Hi Mary,
May I ask why you have chosen Tiger Point? Have you been down here visiting before? Gulf Breeze is a great community, my husband and I moved here when our kids were young 14 years ago. We love it here. I am a Illinois native too, from west suburban Chicago. Please feel free to give me a call with any questions you may have.

What a great community you have chosen. It is safe, near great schools and very close to Walmart and Lowes so you never have to travel far for the basics. Yes,very possible to find the house you are looking for. It should cost you somewhere between $300,000 to $350,000 unless you want to be on the water then prices are more. I have lived in Tiger Point for 17 years and love it. I will be glad to send specific listings for you. Please email me at mdmoran2@mchsi.com Thanks
