Pensacola Beach, Florida

Pensacola Beach, Florida, on the Emerald Coast, offers a spectacular experience; you’ll be pleasantly surprised if you’re just visiting or moving here. You’ll find miles of pristine beach and sugar-white sands where you are likely to meet bikini-clad natives and some of America’s finest defenders of freedom serving at any one of several area military installations. Pensacola Beach offers Southern living at its very best.

When you’re done at the beach, take a ride to Fort Pickens and visit a real American fort. Knowledgeable Park Rangers at the Gulf Islands National Seashore will tell you about the Battle of Santa Rosa during the American Civil War, which involved Fort Pickens. You can climb all over the fort and see for yourself what state-of-the-art fortification was like in the mid-1830s when the fort was completed as part of a national campaign to fortify American ports following the War of 1812. Across the bay is Fort Barrancas, built by the Spanish in 1787.

Along the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk, you’ll find sporting goods stores, women’s and men’s clothing boutiques, chocolatiers, and seaside wine bars with dock accommodations allowing those with boats to pull right up for an evening of fun, and you’ll find one-of-a-kind treasures to make your Emerald Coast memories tangible for a lifetime.

Eating in Pensacola Beach, Florida

When it comes to dining, Pensacola Beach offers cuisines second to none. From American fares such as dried black Angus beef served with all the fixings or sizzling hot seafood fresh off the boat prepared by one of America’s finest chefs to desserts of homemade ice cream laden with locally produced hot fudge sauce – meals in Pensacola Beach are guaranteed to make the whole family delight.

Skies above Pensacola Beach, Florida

For the more adventurous, Pensacola Beach offers helicopter excursions to whiz you close atop shark-infested waters. The helicopter tour will give you a panoramic viewing of what remains of Tristan De Luna’s fleet from his ill-fated 1559 – 1561 expedition to colonize Florida for Spain.

As you can see, the battle for prime real estate FL real estate in the Panhandle is fierce. Five flags have flown over Pensacola Beach since the time of Tristan De Luna, not to mention the area was ruled by Native Americans when he first arrived.

Today the Emerald Coast is part of a new frontier. The first splashdown in 45 years of a manned rocket happened a few miles offshore in August 2020 when SpaceX landed in the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures were broadcast on NASA TV and several major news networks. Residents in Pensacola saw the astronauts come ashore at Naval Air Station Pensacola.

NAS Pensacola is home to the Navy’s Blue Angels. The flight team performs for roughly 11 million Americans each year at airshows across the country. The squad has been a fixture on the Pensacola Beach landscape since the 1940s.

The Blue Angels can be seen most Tuesday mornings practicing in the skies above Pensacola Beach. On Sunday evenings just before sunset, you can expect to see them roar down the beach, leaving a trail of white smoke in their wake as they return home to a hero’s welcome from an airshow earlier in the day a thousand-plus miles away.

Things To Do Near Pensacola Beach

SHOPPING

Short-term Rental Restrictions

Pensacola Beach offers an outstanding value proposition for homeowners and investors wishing to engage in short-term rentals.

According to real estate brokerage professionals, beachfront property values in Pensacola Beach remain mispriced compared to similar beach communities in the southeastern United States. Short-term rental rates, however, consistently trade at or above the regional average, creating arbitrage opportunities for savvy investors and homeowners, says the Pensacola Association Of Realtors.

Additionally, rising interest rates are increasing rental prices in Pensacola Beach and nationally. The correlation between rising interest spikes and higher real estate rental prices is a well-established economic phenomenon likely to persist near term as the Federal Reserve continues its efforts to tame inflation.

Pensacola Beach is well-positioned for those seeking to acquire properties to engage in short-term lease transactions because Florida law protects property owners better than certain other jurisdictions. Florida state law preempts local municipalities and county governments from imposing outright prohibitions on property owners engaging in short-term rental transactions through sites such as Airbnb.

However, there are specific rules and regulations at the Florida State-level and municipal and county levels with which homeowners must comply. Individually none of these compliance issues are particularly onerous. Still, many requirements are not intuitive, so the help of a real estate brokerage professional is essential as you navigate this terrain.

For those who own condominiums or real estate within gated communities governed by homeowners associations, there are likely additional compliance issues and often the need for a certain level of ongoing marketing anonymity. HOA issues, if not addressed properly at the outset, can be ruinous to a steady stream of passive real estate income.

Positive reviews from guests are mission-critical to your real estate rental success. Even one marginal review may force you to rent at a significantly lower rate or eliminate you from the competition altogether. This makes and money well spent to pay a reliable real estate professional with experience to manage your property and ensure that when guests arrive, the place has been cleaned and maintenance issues have been resolved, and to ensure that everything in your listing description is accurate.

Real estate brokerage services are more than the multiple listing service.
