    I know...we really miss the Mexican food when we are down there.

    To compensate, we always stop at a Mexican Restaurant on our drive home.

    Ever been to CoCo's, located in a strip on Hwy 98 about 1 mile west of Hwy 393?

    Or come to Dallas and dine at Luna Del Noche...where it all began! We never made it to Luna Del Mar, put then again we stuff ourselves with seafood when in town. We're lucky to have lots of Tex-Mex here...duh!

    agreed. That restaurant was awesome. Off topic, but has anyone gone to the new place that replaced it?

    WaterSound is nice with large beaches and dunes, but have you seen how Alys Beach is coming along. That place is gorgeous.

    We went a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't too impressed. The food was nothing special, but quite expensive. There are dozens of restaurants on 30A that are better.

    Of course this is leading us a little off topic . . .

    There's even a better deal:

    Lot 5 Wind Rose was just listed for $650,000. It was previously listed with Watersound sales for $895 and didn't sell.

    $650 is a great price and has until 10/06 for the build out timeframe. If you want to build in Watersound and are ready to start the process now, this is the buy.

    doug,

    Two more comparable properties to lot 63 hit the market recently. The actual price paid for 63 late last year was $899k. As of today, lot 61, 62 and 59 are for sale at prices between $650k and $689k. They all back up to the putting green like lot 63. Some good deals to be had compared to the market price paid last year.

    Skier,

    These lots do not meet my criteria for purchase in the WaterSound development. Furthermore, I encourage you not to waste your time looking for deals on my behalf, as you are not my realtor.

    If you truly wish to announce a deal to the community, then direct it to the community and not me. But then again, I am sure the point of your post was to get in the last word and ONCE AGAIN state your bearish interpretation of the market.

    Doug :nono1:

    P.S. - Talk about kicking a dead horse!!!!

    Doug,

    Doug,

    You wrote a very long message saying that I was misleading people in my original post on this thread. You went out of your way to say so. I took great exception to your post directed at me, and I am merely stating facts that back up the points I made in my original post.

    Also, the thread discussing potentially good deals in Watersound was not directed at you or your realtor. In my most recent message, I apologize for implying that you should take advantage of what appears to be lots for sale at below recent market pricing.

    Party is over. Skier got it. Fact that 650k is pending will draw more sellers out of woods, lock-in their gains. People bought last year are not in desirable position now.

    Sue,

    I still have my house up for sale. I can only afford one second home at a time. Good to hear that the lots got snatched up so fast. As I stated in my original post on this thread, I did have a feeling that the deals looked good on a comparable basis. Looks like there are buyers out there at the right price.
