Scenic 30A is known for its pristine 16 mile stretch of sugar white sand beaches and it chic luxury communities of Rosemary Beach, Seaside, WaterColor, WaterSound and Alys Beach. This year Seaside, Rosemary Beach, Grayton Beach and WaterColor top our list of most expensive homes sold on Scenic 30A.
2010’s Most Expensive Homes sold list is a close match to 2009’s Most Expensive Homes Sold list with the all of the most expensive transactions occurring in the first half of the year. It is an interesting trend that I have followed for a number of years and it has been consistent year over year. If you have a high end luxury home, the best time to sell is spring break to June. This is when the big checks are being written.
As with 2009 our top most expensive home sold broke through the $7,000,000 range again. Even in our devastated economy high dollar real estate transactions are continuing to occur. Last year’s list was 100% gulf front homes. This year two homes in WaterColor make the list and are not gulf front. Enjoy the list and we look forward to working with you in 2011!
If you can believe it, this home was a custom spec home and went under contract less than 60 days after it was listed.
