There is a steady increase in buyer traffic being seen. Okaloosa County Florida covers Mary Esther, Crestview, Niceville, and Destin, FL. Many of these sales are due to the increase in military families relocating to our area and also investors trying to cash in on the low prices before we experience price increases which normally occur every March.
