Destin has much to offer: beautiful weather, great shopping, and of course the beach, but what it doesn’t have much to offer is affordable housing.
Jim and his wife have recently moved to the area, and they are in the process of adopting a child. When Jim’s job moved him here, he had a hard time finding the right house with an affordable price tag.
Springtime is a popular time for houses to be put on the market, and Debbie says the baby boomers also play a big part in adding to the area’s population.
For now, there does not seem to be any expectation for real estate to slow down, which may be a good thing for Destin’s economy, but a bad thing for homebuyers.
