Communities for Locals 365 Lifestyles

Live in paradise but still have the welcoming familiarity of your hometown. These areas are frequently home to locals who call the area home all year long.

Explore Real Estate in Locals 365 Communities

Much like the other areas in 30A, real estate in the Locals 365 communities is competitive. However, there are a good number of options in regards to property type and budget, so there is a lot of choice for many hopeful buyers. 

Any of the communities along the bay, such as Niceville or Bluewater Bay, are great options for those searching for private, forested properties or homes on quiet residential streets. Primarily single-family homes, these lots (in the case of Bluewater Bay) can be tucked away from main roads. In Niceville, you’ll find quaint suburban-feeling homes that come with friendly neighbors and a warm atmosphere—perfect for families!

The Gulf Coast cities offer more choice in property type, with both beautiful condos and gorgeous beachfront homes. Destin, for example, has a number of competitively priced condos for sale—that don’t compromise on view!

Of course, beachfront homes are the most desirable real estate in these communities, and each home has a lot to offer! Sometimes just steps away from the beach (or even on the beach itself!), these luxury homes are the perfect place to settle down, for every day is paradise.
