Spring Break 2018 Reminders
Based on the large crowds seen over the weekend and temperatures near 80, beach visitors can’t wait for Spring 2018 to get here! The word is getting around that PCBeach is very “family friendly” this time of year.
Since some regulatory changes were made a couple of years ago, here are some important reminders about Spring Break.
1. No possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages is allowed on the sandy beach during the month of March.
2. No possession or consumption of alcohol is allowed in commercial parking lots.
3. All alcohol sales end at 2 a.m. through the month of March.
4. No open house parties will be allowed.
5. Parking in a closed business parking lot is prohibited.
6. Overnight scooter rental is not permitted.
7. It is illegal to climb, jump from or throw things from balconies.
Have fun but remember to keep these new rules in mind!

Spring Fishing Report
Offshore you will find that although the bite is good on quite a few species, although most are in the closed season right now. March 1 triggerfish season will re-open. Gag grouper won’t reopen till June 1 in our area, and red snapper is set to open in federal waters June 1 but the date in state waters has not been announced. Also, there are still some flounder on the inshore wrecks and a few kings and Spanish Mackerel have been reported already.
You may hook into a big redfish fishing off the rocks in the pass. Surf fishing will start to get better each week. Spanish mackerel and bluefish can be caught along the beach but you will have better luck with them fishing from the piers or trolling if you have a boat. Pompano should be arriving soon.
Prices Rising In The Condo Market
Ten years ago the PCBeach condo market had an abundance of inventory causing prices to drop, creating a “Buyers” market. Things have changed. Currently there are about 1/3 as many condos on the market compared to 10 years ago, creating a “Sellers” market. With this trend in place, prospective buyers are seeing prices more often rising than falling, while inventories are relatively low. With very little condo construction going on along PCBeach, this rising price trend could be in place for a while. If you are planning a condo purchase you may wish to take a closer look, should prices continue to hold or rise.
If you are planning to sell your condo, this may be a good time to take a close look at these recent price trends and get your condo on the market. To find out what condos have been selling for in your condo building, get that free info by contacting A.D. Whitehurst / Broker – PCBeach Realty! (850) 819-2337 or send him an email.

Simply create a quick profile of what you are looking for. You’ll see the current listings, and afterward new notifications will arrive via email with new listings. That’s all there is to it! Sign up now…..it only takes a minute. Here’s the link.
To just browse condos for sale, see all PCBeach condos currently on the market at PCBeach.com. In each listing you will see a form allowing you to send an inquiry with any specific questions.
