We are so excited to welcome Spring to the Emerald Coast. The weather is warming up and just in time for our Spring Break visitors. The beautiful thing about living in Northwest Florida is that we have the ability to comfortably spend time outdoors all year around. In fact, many of our charitable fundraisers such as walk-a-thons and marathons are held during our winter months. Just last month, our Listing Specialist, Amanda Abbott, entered into the 4th Annual Seaside School Half Marathon & 5K Run the weekend of February 26th-28th. The purpose of this event, hosted by Vera Bradley (who gave amazing gifts to each runner), was to raise money for the Seaside Neighborhood School and the Seacoast Collegiate High School. Just like any other school around, these Seaside Charter Schools experience funding cuts year after year.

The new year offers great opportunities to start with a fresh outlook and setting new goals and resolutions. Does your plan for 2016 include real estate objectives for a new home or maybe investment property?
The market is rapidly increasing across Florida, including our local Emerald Coast real estate market that spans the coast from Pensacola to Panama City Beach in the Panhandle. Mortgage rates along with property prices are expected to rise making now the time to buy! For renters considering purchasing a new home, there are estimated penalties to waiting even a year that almost triples when applied to three year projection.

Realtor.com compared the cost of buying to renting to develop these average penalty rates on this chart. The Nathan Abbott Team works with the best lenders and business partners in the bus! ...

It’s that time of year again when the Emerald Coast plays host to the annual migrating flocks of Snowbirds! Yes, those lucky folks who have perfected not only how to survive winter, but how to live it to the fullest along our Gulf coast of Northwest Florida. These snowbirds bring a plethora of life to our coastal economy after the seasonal tourists have all gone home. They not only keep our rental properties booked, but also boost sales among our local restaurants, retail shops, golf resorts, and entertainment establishments. So “welcome” snowbirds! ResortQuest is sponsoring The Winter Guest Fest, Thursday January 15th 8 am - noon at the Emerald Coast Convention Center.
There are snowbird clubs all along our Emerald Coast that offer something for everyone! These clubs are the go-to places for fellowship and valuable information about the area. Fort Walton Beach has a snowbird club of over 700 members and offers activities and events to include crafts, cards ...
