    I don't know Earl, but I suspect that it is similar to what it was when Realtors were telling people that "real estate only goes up", and "they aren't making any more water front property" and "I'd go for the no money down, no doc, adjustable rate mortgage to get into that bigger place with the granite counters ... it will appreciate faster"

    Don't forget the... "Buy now, or you will be priced out forever!!!"

    Realtors make a used car salesman look good...

    Ah, the three greastest lies ...

    3). "No, you don't look fat in those jeans"

    2). "I promise I'll respect you in the morning"

    1). "Buy now, or you will be priced out forever"

    Sandestin Luau across from Hilton.

    YMMV on if this is a good or great deal - I think it is.

    I'll go SJ one better. Same parameters except I have a 100k in cash to spend. The profits from my housing stock plays.

    It only hurts if you are one of the shysters. There are plenty of good people who are Realtors in this area, thankfully.

    I agree, and I know of at least 2 good ones. The one selling my house and the one working with the buyer. ;-)

    :clap_1: :clap_1: :clap_1: Very true Franny!!!!
    SJoe I agree, there are some very good realtors in this area and some very very bad ones. They are the ones that give us the bad name. I hear stories from my loyal clients of other agents blatently calling and soliciting, telling them they can sell their house(if so why dont they bring a contract), and we have even had another agent tell a client of ours that we do not know what we are doing and why would they list with us!!!!:pissed: Dont worry I have called ECAR on them already...

    I believe what comes around, goes around.

    I have a 3BR - 2 Bath condo in the new development of Seagrove Highlands down Somerset Bridge Rd. by the Tom Thumb.
    There is one other in the development that is cheaper than mine but I don't think it has a screened in porch.
    Mine is on the ground floor and thiers is on the 2nd.
    My porch backs up to the forest. It's very cool back there and surprisingly private. The people who are already living in the complex say that they hardly have to use thier AC on this side of the building!!!!
    I will sell this one for $518,000.
    There will be 2 other buildings going up at a later date but they won't be priced anywhere near this.

    I also have a 3 BR - 3 Bath condo at Sides Moreno Point West, beside the Destin bridge. It is 1196 square feet. It's a killer unit with views beyond belief of the sunset over Crab Island. This is a gated development with covered parking.
    I haven't done my homework on this to see what the bottom dollar would be but it will be somewhere around $850,000. I've had this one rented for the past year for $3000 per month. It is vacant as we speak.

    I also have a unit at the Village of Blue Mountain - furnished - 2 BR-2 Bath that I'll unload for somewhere around $425,000.

    Who are you calling a Pirate Wench? It's a SoWal wench and yes she is part of the wench committee. But you can only be called a wench by another SoWal wench. :wub:
