    Walton County may have bought land they already own

    I think a chart showing all the different connections (business and family) would help people understand just how interconnected and symbiotic most of the BCC transactions and contracts are.

    Any restaurants with specials during the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve?

    Hurricane Oyster Bar has daily lunch specials and so does Marie's. It changes daily. Fire posted a bunch of specials in a separate thread.

    SLERS not too bad an idea.

    If the Sheriff took over the fire department, does that mean the fire commissioners go away? I never understood their purpose and would much rather be spending tax monies on active firefighters than elected officials.

    Bridge Addition for US HWY 331

    IMO we would already have a 4 lane 331 if the same old players hadn't been spending their time and our tax money trying to make themselves more money at our expense with a private toll bridge.

    Massage anyone?

    No idea, think it makes them feel better and the cutout keeps them from squishing the baby.

    No building south of the CCCL please

    It's the height of idiocy IMO and I am sick and tired of my taxpayer dollars paying for these idiot's insurance! We should be moving the line back, not letting them build closer.

    Are you serious? They beat a child, got caught, evidence was produced, AND they got a promotion?

    South Walton Pending Real Estate Sales Increase 45%

    I meant for each year - was curious to see how actual sold compared to pending based on your comments.

    Thank you for showing that bad sportsmanship and winning at any cost is not a recent occurrence.

    Can you post a graph showing actual sales for the past and the current pendings?

    Existing home sales to be revised lower

    Buz - I checked my Scottrade agreement and it seems to say that they can rehypothocate at will, but I think that only applies to margin. It's #61 and #62 on page 7.

    Existing home sales to be revised lower

    Luckily I do not have a 401K.........or more than $50 in a brokerage account. Sounds like it is definitely hitting the fan though! Thanks for the update. Also appreciated the article about how the housing data is completely wrong!

    That is a man-made divider, I prefer ones made by Mother Nature.

    Existing home sales to be revised lower

    Thanks - IMO this is stealing. Those are not their assets. Another question - if a bank fails, can it do the same to contents of your safety deposit box?

    Existing home sales to be revised lower

    Really? A brokerage can take the money I have invested and consider it their asset? Is it all funds, or is it just money I have in my account that is not currently invested in anything? (Either one is unacceptable, but the 2nd option worries me less.)

    Wow! That is quite a deal!

    Walton County may have bought land they already own

    I agree - plenty of vacant land and unoccupied buildings in the area. No need to take away the forest.

    Massage anyone?

    I think Massage Envy in Pier Park now offers hot stone. The place in Seaside, I don't know if they do massages or hot stone, but as a local you will get 50% off this month.

    Casino at Sandestin?

    I only consider south of the bay to be Sowal. It's an easy geographic divider for me. IMO, these constant publicity blitzes and major expansion attempts are killing what makes this area special. Would be nice to have more jobs in the Freeport area, but I am concerned locating a casino there...

    And if you do go out, please remember that the people cooking your food and serving you are doing so at the expense of enjoying the holidays themselves and tip/act accordingly.

    WANTED: 1br. Is this unrealistic?

    Bear in mind that if you rent for less than 6 months you (legally) need to add in the whomping bed tax. The people trying to find winter renters are the ones who rent short term and charge more for 1 week in the summer than you want to pay for 1 or 2 months. Renting to you long term is a big...

    WANTED: 1br. Is this unrealistic?

    I have not heard of it, usually the price is the same for each month. You can always try, but my guess is that if they wanted to charge more during season and less during the off season they wouldn't be offering a 12 month rental. And $500 for a one bedroom is Sowal is not realistic. Those...

    Realtors: Does price per SF matter anymore when buying a home in South Walton?

    It is something to consider, but IMO it varies so much you are rarely comparing apples and apples. I look at lot size, amenities, and covenants/restrictions before SF.

    saying that renting your home in the winter is seasonal is an understatement.

    I frequently hear the "1 week in summer, 1 month in winter" rule of thumb for rental prices.

    Looking for a home stager

    My method is to choose a couple items, put them on the floor in my line of sight, watch some TV, then put them somewhere at the commercial break. Then by the next commercial I either want to move it or like it where it is.
