Destin & 30A Condo Market Update
December 2023 --- Our local condo market remains active with sales only slightly below last year. Inventory has begun to recover from its record low of less than 600 condo units to nearly 800. Buyers looking last year who were unable to find what they wanted can expect more choices. Market sales continue to be sustained buy the popularity of the area as a vacation or second home destination. As gas prices rise, Destin FL becomes an even more attractive short-trip choice for eight large metro areas within a 7-hour drive.
