Welcome home!! You have truly have chosen a wonderful place. Two years ago we were in the same place you are. After over twenty years moving around with the military my husband and I decided to move back to where he grew up. It has been a great decision. Niceville has so much to offer as far as activities and community.
There are a variety of homes available in the Niceville area, from large custom homes to smaller condos. I would love to help you in your search. If interested, I can set you up to receive listing that meet your criteria. Please contact me if I can help.

Hi Frank, the good news is all the homes in and around Niceville are "cash buys". The question we have to put back to you is how much "cash" are you willing to spend for your home. The are over 100 4 bdrm 2bath homes available on the market today in Niceville, so as we put in your criteria such as size/sqft, maybe year built, or garage, the number will come down significantly. And if the homes in Niceville/ValP are a little out of the price range you want to stay within, then we can consider the Fort Walton Beach area as well. And since you are from the area, you know we are only talking about 15-20 minutes away. Another thing to consider will be the time frame you are looking to actually be in place as well, as that will bear significantly on the homes you are considering. As you noted many have lost thier homes or have had to take a significant loss with a short sale, and there are a number of short sales on the market. And you can get great deals on Short Sales and Foreclosures, but there is a time factor. A foreclosure can take about 30 days while a short sale can take on average 90-120 days. So if your move plans are about 6 months out then a short sale should definitely be on your list of properties to consider.

Also to consider for your visit next week are the fact that many short sales are occupied, and may require 24-48 hours advanced notice before showing, so it would be a good idea if you can give the agent you'd like to work with an idea of what properties you want to view prior to your arrival so that he or she can make the necessary arrangements, and you can maximize your time here. Your agent will send you an advanced list of properties that match your criteria that you can view w/photos which will eliminate ones you definitely do not want to see, and enable them to narrow down the list of the properties you do like, and assist with a good course of action.

Wishing you the best and we look forward to seeing you back on the Gulf Coast.
