The new airport and a demand for affordable homes in a small-town environment should provide a strong foundation for the Spring Ridge community
Chipley, FL (Vocus) February 19, 2010
Spring Ridge Development LLC, creators of a new large-scale, master-planned active adult community in south Washington County in the Florida Panhandle, has issued a special report in which it assesses and comments on the status and future of the area’s economy and its likely impacts on Florida Panhandle real estate values.
In the report, titled “An Emerging Economy is About to Take Flight,” the Spring Ridge team describes specifically the anticipated ripple effects of the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, which is nearing completion in neighboring Bay County, and the emergence of the Central Panhandle of Florida as an important hub for personal and commercial transportation. In addition, it points out the significance of transportation improvements as the basis for a resurgent economy likely to bolster the investment value of Panhandle real estate.
“The new airport and a demand for affordable homes in a small-town environment should provide a strong foundation for the Spring Ridge community,” says Brad Smedberg, Director of Sales and Marketing for the development. “We’ve identified what we feel strongly is a highly desirable and eminently marketable niche where Florida Panhandle real estate is concerned.”
For decades, the Florida Panhandle economy has relied heavily on the timber and seasonal tourist industries. That picture is quickly becoming more diverse with the result that the area is becoming increasingly attractive to both working and retired year-round residents.
So it is that the Spring Ridge team has confidently embarked on its project to bring about an active adult community rich in amenities that will also appeal to young families.
“The two most important factors in real estate investment are location and timing and we find that the Florida Panhandle real estate market today is in great position with regard to both of those criteria,” Smedberg said.
