When assisting buyers in a second home market, finding the right property that suits all of their wants and needs, doesn't always come easy. Most seasoned buyers in a traditional market are accustomed to "checking all the boxes" when it comes to finding a property that meets all of their needs.  More often than not, it takes even the saviest of buyers, ample time to get used to the second home market and it's trends.  It typically takes months, even years, for them to realize that they will likely need to be a little more flexible with their "wish list" when shopping in a second home market.  Whether it be the price, location, view, square footage, or even something as simple as the size of the closets, there is usually one or more need that cannot be

This weekend we shot a video from Gulf place covering Dune Allen Beaches along through Blue Mountain beach finishing up at the neighborhood of The Retreat.  Notice toward the end of the video that Draper Lake had just opened up into the Gulf.  We don't get to see this happen all that much.   Draper Lake was high and there was a lot of white water initially once it broke through.

It is exciting when we have an opportunity to list and market one of a kind niche-like homes.  What makes a home "Niche-like"?  That can mean many different things to different people.  It can be a home in an incredible location, tasty home design, quality construction or in certain cases, all 3.  It's also a bonus when the clients are an absolute pleasure. 

What makes this home so special?  It is built to last.  I asked Will Dunn of Davis Dunn Construction, If this was the strongest home he has ever built.  He gave me a clever answer, "Blake, This home is as strong as any home we have built".  The home is certified as Fortified Construction and is resistant to very strong storms.   See:
