2020 and 2021 are unique in the history of residential real estate with record low interest rates, unprecedented buyer demand, and remarkably low "for sale" inventory!The real estate market is expected to do very well in 2021, with mortgage rates that are hovering at historic lows and forecasted by experts to remain favorable throughout the year. One challenge to the housing industry, however, is the lack of homes available for sale today. Last week, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) released their Existing Home Sales Report, which shows that the inventory of homes for sale is currently at an all-time low.The report explains:“Total housing inventory at the end of December totaled 1.07 million units, down 16.4% from November and down 23% from one year ago (1.39 million). Unsold ...

 I was referred to a potential home buyer in Destin, Florida.  He was in the construction business and had just been working in our area for a few months, coming here from another state. I could tell that English was his second language, and I listened carefully.  He told me that he had never bought a home before, but had found one online in Destin that he wanted to see. I looked it up and it was already under contract. Then, I asked him if he had been pre-qualified for a mortgage.  There can be stricter loan requirements for self-employed persons, and I was concerned that his local work history may not be sufficient to get approved.  He told me he had money saved up, emergency funds that he could spend.  He mentioned the full amount could be used.  Giving me pause, I said without think...

What will be the impact of the coronavirus on the U. S. and local real estate markets be?At present, this is unknown but here is what we currently know:The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused massive global uncertainty, including a U.S. stock market correction no one could have seen coming. While much of the news has been about the effect on various markets, let’s also acknowledge the true impact it continues to have on lives and families around the world.With all this uncertainty, how do you make powerful and confident decisions in regard to your real estate plans?The National Association of Realtors (NAR) anticipates:“At the very least, the coronavirus could cause some people to put home sales on hold.”While this is an understandable approach, it is important to balance that with how it...

 It dawned on me today driving across the Mid-Bay Bridge that I end up in a reverie each time I drive it.  During my morning or evening commute from Bluewater Bay to Destin, I go through a similar mental routine.  First, my eyes gaze at the water of Choctawhatchee Bay. Is it dark and grey, like today, reflecting the cloud-laden sky, is it a deep blue, dotted with whitecaps during a choppy day, or is it a blue-green, with sailboats and speedboats zig-zagging about? After the water and the sky, I glance at the horizon. If it’s near sunset, such dazzling colors can appear, from a burnt-siena to fiery orange or violet and yellow, that it’s almost a hazard to driving. Who hasn’t tried to snap a photo of a dusky sky (as a passenger) crossing the Mid-Bay Bridge? On a rare occasion, at night, t...

Happy Valentines Day to Everyone.  I am hopefully the first person to wish you this heart felt wish.   It just occurred to me after many years in this industry that I have been playing the part of Cupid over all these years.  We can go round and round about who and what is the key decision maker or factor when it comes to the time to buy or sell a home or property.   After the economic decision of how much can I afford, It does become a very emotional decision about finding and buying a home.  The economic decision is a very large part but does the emotional factor become a larger issue after we get that boring finance part out of the way.   In what other industry do we view the "curb appeal" as being a very important part of the marketing plan.  In what other industry do we even consid...

Chip Jervis is a family man, a boater, a real estate broker, a lover of coastal living and all things Destin and northwest Florida!  I remember well the years 2003 to 2008 when the real estate market, especially in resort areas, was wild and crazy! Flipping properties, boutique developers, million dollar mortgages and the only qualification was you could fog a mirrior with your breath. I also remember well the subsequent market crash and very little if any mortgage money available.......... No one knows for sure when the next recession will occur but what is known is that the upcoming economic slowdown will not be caused by a housing market crash, as was the case in 2008. There are those who disagree and are comparing today’s real estate market to the market in 2005-2006, which preceded...

"REAL ESTATE MATTERS" in Destin, Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Beach, Niceville, Ft. Walton Beach and northwest Florida!Whether you are considering moving up, moving down or just moving out, ask yourself the following question:Should I Fix My Home Up or Sell Now?........With the fall season upon us, change is in the air.

The question inevitably arises: is it finally time to downsize?If you’re pondering that thought, you may also be wondering if you should fix-up your house before you sell it, or go straight to the market as-is, allowing a potential buyer to do the updates and remodeling....

New Tax laws you didn’t know about? Well odds are there are probably many.  But I just heard one that has me shaking my head.In cities and states across the country some new laws have been enacted.  Did you know that in Seattle Washington effective 1 Jan 18 they have enacted a “sweetened beverage” tax?   Shoppers will now have to pay $1.75 per ounce on ALL sugar sweetened beverages.   To put it in perspective:  if you buy in bulk like Costco for example you will have to pay $10 in tax on a $16 case of Gatorade.   The point is to force consumers to go for healthier choices. In florida: It is illegal to sell your children Women may be fined for falling aslee under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner.    (well they better not look through my house window) Oral sex is illegal A special law...
