In The Neighborhood: Primary Living in the Panhandle

Every year, between the months of March and September, nearly 10 million people visit the charming communities along Scenic Highway 30A and in Destin, Florida, to build new family memories along our breathtaking sugar-sand beaches. While a large portion of travelers find themselves with their sights set on amenity-rich condominium buildings, offering a convenient package for those looking to “experience it all” during their stay, the picturesque single-family home neighborhoods of Destin and Santa Rosa Beach draw people in due to their “home away from home” feel and emphasis on community and architecture.

While these sought-after travel destinations continue to grow in popularity, another segment of single-family dwelling is growing in popularity — rental-restricted neighborhoods. And, while it may not be the weekly travelers searching out these properties, the growing segment of primary home buyers are flocking to these neighborhoods in search of a refreshed take on everyday living.

In most cases, rental-restricted communities are those that do not allow for “short-term rentals,” or in most cases, leases for less than one month —although a six- to twelve-month lease requirement is most common in these communities

2020 has definitely changed the way we all work and live, and that change shifted primary home buyers from looking in historically suburban markets to setting their sights on the beach towns along 30A and Destin, Florida. These buyers are looking to leave the gridlock and densely-populated areas around the big city for the warm breeze off the Gulf of Mexico and an active, nature-filled lifestyle. Pair the highly-rated local public and private schools with the amenities, space and privacy of these primary-style neighborhoods, and those seeking a change of scenery and locale are finding that the hidden gem of the Emerald Coast keeps getting brighter, the closer they look.
