Market Trends

The Forgotten Coast real estate market continues to be characterized by a healthy demand across most price segments. Waterfront properties, in particular, command a premium, reflecting buyers’ desire for the coastal lifestyle that the area uniquely offers. However, there is also a steady interest in inland properties, where more space and privacy can be obtained at a more accessible price point.

Inventory levels have increased compared to the previous week, providing prospective buyers with more options. However, properties in prime locations and those that are well-priced are selling quickly, often receiving multiple offers. This competitive environment underscores the importance of working with a knowledgeable local agent, such as The Peevy Team, who can provide buyers with a strategic hyper local advantage.

Sellers considering listing their properties may find this an opportune time, as demand for vacation homes and investment properties typically increases during this season.
