One would think that December along the Gulf Coast would not be festive. Well, I can attest, it is joyful, it is beautiful…and it is the best place to celebrate the Holidays.
The Holiday Season Along the Emerald Coast.
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…”
One would think that December along the Gulf Coast would not be festive. Well, I can attest, it is joyful, it is beautiful…and it is the best place to celebrate the Holidays. In my opinion, Christmas shopping at Pier Park or the Silver Sands is the best way to shop.
Rather than being stuck inside a brick and mortar mall, you walk the shops’ sidewalks in the outdoor malls.
The weather is mild, the salt air is festive, and the shops and streets play joyful Christmas songs. No better way to get in the Holiday Spirit!
The beaches are quieter, with plenty of activity from people who want to spend the Holidays at the beach.
The start of snowbird season.
The majority of our snowbirds have not come down yet, although some early bird snowbirds are migrating down. We are always happy to see them come back as they are part of our community!
I bring up snowbirds along the Emerald Coast, as they are an essential demographic for the local economy and our vacation property investors.
Many snowbirds come to the Emerald Coast along the Panhandle starting in November when the beach vacation season winds down. They stay in our local areas anywhere from 2 – 5 months, and they come back year after year. The snowbirds eat at our local restaurants, and they occupy our vacation rentals when reservations can be sporadic.
As a result, property investors along the Emerald Coast appreciate our snowbirds.
Life’s A Beach brokerage has developed relationships with many snowbirds. We are a direct line of contact who might have an available vacation property to rent.
Helping snowbirds connect with investment property owners is a win-win, as we are helping our investors on their return on investment. And we are assisting snowbirds in enjoying their time living the dream in paradise along the Panhandle.
Update on the “Diamond In The Rough”
Speaking of investment property, here is an update on our “diamond in the rough.” Flooring, paint, crown molding, new showers, and cabinets are all completed! Now we wait for,…wait for it…the quartz countertops. They need to be measured, cut, and then installed. We are getting there; we now have a projected timeline of being complete in January.
We are getting there! And I can’t wait to share the before and after pictures!!
