Don’t wait to sell your house ~ Buyers are out now !
The National Association of Realtors (NAR) suggests that now is a great time to sell your home. The concept of supply and demand reveals that the best price for an item is realized when the supply of that item is low and the demand for that item is high.

A normal market requires six months of housing inventory to meet the demand. The latest report from the NAR revealed that there is currently only a 3.6 month supply of houses on the market. With Supply very low, now is a good time to Sell.

Today, much of the island and Pensacola in general is remarkably similar to then. Nature has helped shape and reshape the barrier island which extends 16 miles between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. Tucked beautifully between Florida and Alabama, Perdido Key escaped the explosion of beach development and was left to appreciative locals who enjoyed the remoteness...as well as the fishing, swimming and sugar-sand white beaches.
But as Florida became more and more developed - especially after the US Navy sold off portions of the now Lost Key Golf & Beach Club in early 1950's for as little as $3000. an acre, Federal and State agencies bought much of the land and now more than 60 percent of Perdido Key is off limits to development.
With large agreement between the county ...
