FL - New homes unique on Navarre Beach

The small Santa Rosa County island has had 134 single-family dwellings built there since 2012, reported Santa Rosa County.

NAVARRE BEACH — For nearly 50 years, Phil Babiak has been involved in the Navarre Beach real estate market.

The co-owner and broker of Century 21, Babiak remembers the day he sold his first lot on the Gulf front for $6,000 as a 25-year-old.

Now at age 75, property on the 4-mile stretch of barrier island sells for about $1 million, he said.

“It was a little bit different when I started,” said Babiak, chuckling. “I thought someday the top prices would be $50,000. It has exceeded that by a large number as well.”
