NAVARRE BEACH SEES
RECORD TOURISM IN NOVEMBER
After suffering through the dismal Spring months of 2020, when most of the country was in lockdown due to the Pandemic, Navarre Beach Tourism soared.
When Florida began to reopen their doors, it was evident that vacationers were eager to get back to normal after being shut inside, and go out and play and enjoy some of the most beautiful beaches around.
The numbers are astonishing with tax revenue being up almost 27% in October and 55% in November. Total tax revenues for the year came in at $3.5 million, being only $400K less than 2019.
Unfortunately, Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key didn't fare as well. Tax revenues on Pensacola Beach were up, but just by 3% in November. Perdido Key's revenue dropped by 30% in November.
So, why did Navarre Beach do so well but Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key did not? Most contribute it to the fact that the Three-Mile Bridge was closed due to hurricane damage. Also contributing could be that Navarre Beach only has one hotel while Pensacola Beach and Perdido are filled with hotels, which were closed. ...

*Should I Sell My Home Now or Wait Until the Spring? | RISMedia's Housecall
Should I Sell My Home Now or Wait Until Spring?
There are many questions homeowners ask themselves during the selling process. "How much will my home sell for?" "How much should I list my home for?" "Who should I select as a real estate agent to sell my home?" "What if the real estate agent overprices my home?" Last but not least, "Is this a good time to be selling a home?" is also a very common question that real estate agents are asked.
As with every decision in life, there are pros and cons, and choosing when to sell a home is no different. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration before deciding when to sell a home. Many homeowners believe selling a home during the fall or winter months is not a good idea and that the spring is the only time a house should be sold. This is the furthest from the truth. Certainly most real estate markets across the United States experience a "spring market rush" every year. There is no doubt that the "spring market" is a great time to be selling and buying real estate, however, the fall and winter seasons may be the best fit for you for many reasons.
Here are several reasons why choosing to sell your home now may be a better decision than waiting until the spring:...
