It’s Shelling Season!

Hello Everyone,

The heat is on folks! Welcome to SUMMER!

2016 has been a strong year, the likes of which we haven’t seen for some time now.  All the projections predicted are panning out: home prices are rising, mortgage remain low, it’s a seller’s market, credit is loose, and foreclosures have returned to norms.

Developments here in our local corner of the world are as exciting as ever! Pensacola is making some major changes, with plans finally released for the new Pensacola Bay Bridge. Officials project it will ease traffic to and from Gulf Breeze, and designs show pedestrian and bike traffic will enjoy their own separate lanes. See more info on the plans in the news links below!

Perhaps even more relevant however, our beaches are getting a complete overhaul. As we speak, the Pensacola Beach renourishment is underway. Trucks and dredging ships are out in the Gulf replenishing the beachside to expand its width, shore up the island and protect against erosion. Get out there and take advantage of this great opportunity for shelling! 

What a fantastic Blue Angel weekend in mid-July. Hope you got to enjoy it. If not, save the date next year!

As always, contact us with any of your Pensacola area Real Estate needs.

What Are Recent Buyers and Sellers Saying About Our Team?

“Conna helped us to purchase and sell our unit at Portofino. To sell our condo in Pensacola Beach with a competitive market was certainly a concern for us. However, Friendly, knowledgeable and always available staff of Conna O’Donovan helped us to understand and adjust the decor asking price to an  appealing realistic selling level. We highly recommend Conna O’Donovan Real Estate If you are serious about selling or buying real estate.”

“Great experience with great outcome.  Conna was always professional; as we were out of town sellers, she kept us informed, gave inputs on all showings in a weekly e-mail.  Attentive with frequent phone contact, we felt comfortable that she was doing her best for us. She sold our house quickly, with minimal negotiation.”
