One of Florida's best kept secrets won't be a secret much longer!
A blossoming country town nestled along the Chocktawhatchee Bay just 15 minutes from the most beautiful beaches in the world! For many years, Freeport was known for its serene under developed natural setting and its boating opportunities with easy access to major bayous, the bay and the Gulf. But as the Beaches of Destin and South Walton exploded with development during the early 2000’s and land prices went through the roof, Freeport started to attract major developments of its own. Hammock Bay, (a three thousand acre premiere development), Windswept, and Owl’s Head (golf course developments) were just a few of many. However, when the market crashed in 2008, developments on both sides of the bay stalled and the banks took over.
Naturally the beaches rebounded first and have seen prices more than double over the last two years as all the distressed property was gobbled up. That gold rush is about to make its way to Freeport. Freeport growth heats up when beach side land prices prohibit building affordable housing (under $300,000). That day is right now and Freeport still has rock bottom pricing that we predict will double within the next 18 months. For this reason, we are investing heavily in Freeport!
- Beachside Prices Spiraling out of control
There is no more affordable land on the beachside of the bay. All of the distressed property from the market crash in 2008 has been absorbed and small ¼ acre lots in subdivisions are now selling at $100,000 minimum. These prices will continue to spiral as tourist season kicks in this spring, summer and fall.
- An Affordable Piece of Paradise
When beachside prices get too high, developers and investors start to turn their attention to the next best opportunity within their reach as they attempt to own a piece of this paradise. That’s Freeport, with prices and insurance rates well below the beachside but only 15-20 minutes away.
- Commercial Development
As affordable housing is built in this blossoming town, it will continue to drive more commercial development and thus continue to drive prices even higher. As that development grows, our beautiful country town will turn into a pristine larger town!
- Florida rated “A+” schools
And all this new development will match up well with our brand new Freeport Elementary and High Schools which have been given our state’s highest rating for academic achievement!
