Our beaches, long revered for their white powdery sand and crystal clear emerald waters, is becoming recognized the world over for its serenity. Gaining incredible popularity in the US, Canada and over seas, the BOOM here will only continue to line the pocket books of the early savvy investor. Rated by U.S. news in 2018 as the best beach in North America, Destin, is deservingly getting world recognition for its incredible coastline, wonderful outdoor activities for the entire family all equating to a remarkable opportunity for the early investor.
Home Away and VRBO rated Destin, FL as the second highest Gross Producer in all of North America for the short term rental market. Seeing upwards of 10-15% Gross R.O.I. due to the ability the average family has to divide one home between several families, short term home rentals are quickly becoming far more popular than hotels. One of our rentals purchased in July of 2018 for $725,000 was already booked for all of May, June and July 2019 for $5,000-$6,000 per Week by October of 2018.
Still today 1 out of every 3 people visiting Destin Florida is a first time visitor to our coastline. With the BOOM of Social Media like Facebook and Instagram, people are "spreading the word" fast showcasing our incredible beaches, marine life, golf courses and celebrity interactions. The photo above was taken in the 1970's showing nothing here at all. Now with the backing of billionaires and many other large industries seeing the enormous potential for investment opportunity here, Destin, and its neighboring towns, are rising to the top of the charts for future short term and long term investment opportunities.
The Vast majority of our wonderful properties here, in and along the coastline, is owned by what is referred to as an "absentee owner" or someone whom resides somewhere else but purchased property here for investment or second home living or both. Florida has seen a massive increase in absentee ownership especially along the Emerald Coast because of the long term and short term benefits of ownership. Having the ability to visit, as often as you are able, a property that pays for itself is quite rewarding. It also provides a means to diversify your portfolio into a market that is growing higher than the national average and producing, as stated above, income higher than almost any other city in North America. Our understanding of the short term rental market here and how geographic location plays an ENORMOUS part in that spectrum will help you make a well informed decision should you be interested in potential ownership here.

Destin offers something that most of the neighboring towns and cities just do not..."infrastructure!" While Pensacola and other similar cities have equally impressive beaches and coastline, why is Destin outproducing every major city and town in the Panhandle? It is our amenities, our attractions, our dining, golfing, family fun activities and local businesses that make Destin truly unique. We truly have something for everyone and in every Season of the Year. To cap that off, Destin Celebrates EVERYTHING with fireworks, festivals and parades. In a single year you can see over 60 different firework shows city wide celebrating our veterans to Christmas to music festivals and much more. We also throw some of the most amazing festivals in all of Florida. As a local now, I can truly tell you that in this part of Florida, we just like to
Won't you be a part of the celebration!
The overwhelming benefit that is widely overlooked by many not fully understanding the market is the Location of Destin and how that impacts our market. Destin Florida is only 5 hours or less drive time from 5 States and only a few more hours to 2 additional states. Not only that but over 30% of our guests here travel from Texas because of its close proximity to world class beaches without the need for airfare. With costs of traveling becoming higher and higher, more and more people are turning to more "local" nearby travel alternatives. None better than Destin, Florida. Furthermore, the ability to finance a property that is categorized as an "income producing property," will only strengthen the savvy investors' positions with the bank knowing there is less "risk" than the average second home. Factor in that the off season is now becoming more and more popular to avoid the large summer crowds, Destin will soon be a year round vacation destination and the city is quickly accepting this and marketing it with their off season parades and firework shows drawing more and more tourists.
