Destin Real Estate Market

Destin has a long history, stretching back far beyond the turn of the last century. Despite this long history, the community wasn’t officially incorporated until 1984, after rapid Destin condo development came to the city in the 1970s, and further expansion throughout the 1980s. Today, Destin has clearly established itself as a mecca for leisure activities with a booming tourism industry. The community boasts an impressive array of vacation homes, condominiums, and luxury waterfront properties that are very attractive to prospective home buyers.

Vacationers and snowbirds set out on yearly pilgrimages, making their way south for the sugar-white sandy beaches, nearby deep-water access to a veritable bounty of the sea and other watersports! So much more than just a vacation destination, Destin homes have proven themselves to be a well-rounded and established community with the well-regarded schools and amenities that home buyers look for.

Destin Community Highlights:

  • A wide range of properties available - perfect for full-time or part-time homes, investment or vacation properties.
  • World-renowned fishing hot spot with great deep-water access just off the coast.
  • Close to several popular nearby gulf-front destinations including Santa Rosa Beach and Sandestin.
  • Beautifully picturesque waterfront views in all directions.
