Michael moves out and cold air moves in.

Sandbridge dodged another bullet with Hurricane Michael. We had stronger than expected winds and several inches of rain. The main issue was the water rise coming from Back Bay. With two storms back to back, there was no place for the water to go. Most of the properties affected were on the bay front or close to it.

We did receive an update from our city council that our sand replenishment project is scheduled to start early 2019 and the Hell’s Point bridge replacement will start before the end of the year. After the bridge project, the Nimmo Parkway extension will begin. We have a lot to keep track of as all of these projects are important and I believe will have a positive impact on our community.

On the real estate front, its been another busy month. It was a pleasure for our team to assist in two families closing on their new home, as they plan to move to Sandbridge full-time! Welcome to the beach!

For the past 30 days we had the following activity:

Single Family Homes – 6 Sold and 3 Pending
Condos – 2 Sold and 1 Pending
Sandbridge Market Metrics – January – October 2018 (year-to-date)

Last Saturday, the Sandbridge Civic League hosted the annual Octoberfest and by all accounts it was a success. It was wonderful to see everyone and hats off to all those who volunteered to make it a great event – including the staff at Baja Restaurant who also did a fantastic job. As the holidays approach, remember to take time to appreciate those around you and thank those that have served our country!
