  • Panama City Beach condo sales review for 2013 2013 - Year in Review

    At the end of 2012, my yearly review showed how condominium prices reached a low point between 2011 and the start of 2012. This bottom point was coupled with an increase in value by 20 to 30 percent during 2011 and 2012 for the most popular buildings. Now the overall market is recovering, but at a slower pace. For some buildings and floor plans, we have no inventory. Most of the available inventory has asking prices that are at least 10% higher than they were a year ago.
