Residential property sales in Rosemary Beach are positively sizzling, much like a typical summer day in the balmy south. The $23,383,333 worth of sales occurring during the month of July alone reflect a volume greater than that registered in the whole of 2006, 2008 and 2009, respectively, and vaulted the month's figures far beyond the prior dollar volume record for Rosemary Beach properties, registered back in August 2004. Three of the July transactions were for Gulf-front residences, though two of them represented cash deals. It is truly telling, and quite astounding that sales in Rosemary Beach alone accounted for roughly a third of the nearly $75 million sales tally for South Walton in its entirety.
In 2010, 38 residential properties in Rosemary Beach were sold, making it the second best sales year in history, based on statistics provided by the Emerald Coast Association of Realtors (ECAR). By July 30 of this year, ECAR data indicate that 23 properties had already been sold, totaling $53.6 million. 2010 saw full-year sales volume on residential properties in Rosemary Beach totaling $43.7 million. That figure has already been shattered with five months yet remaining in 2011.
