The temperatures may be dipping, but the luxury waterfront market in Destin and South Walton is heating up.

"When it comes to the waterfront lifestyle, Somers & Company is showcasing the finest estates on Choctawhatchee Bay , the coastal dune lakes and beachfront on the Gulf of Mexico ," said John Paul Somers, broker at Somers & Company. "Because of the market's strong recovery, coupled with a decrease in inventory levels, and significant replacement costs to construct new, the existing luxury home market offers indisputable value."

Whether you are looking to purchase your dream home or an income-producing property to diversify your investments, the growing and dynamic team at Somers & Company has the perfect estate to pair with even the most discerning buyer.

With 13 years in the real estate industry, Realtor and Broker Associate Debbie James keeps the pulse on the rapidly expanding 30A market, especially with the upcoming launch of Somers & Company's Grayton Beach office.

Situated on the Gulf of Mexico is Villa Leibra, one of James' prized listings in Seagrove Beach . This 10-bedroom, 11.5-bathroom home located at 171 Chivas Lane is an investor's dream, generating up to $18,000 in weekly income. The property, which is listed at $3,995,000, is already "booked solid" for the 2014 summer season.

"It's purely the lifestyle that people want," James said. "Some of the communities have seen prices increase in excess of 20 to 30 percent."

"Sweet Retreat" is a three-story beachfront home on the Gulf, featuring 2,790 square feet, 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, and a master suite with a private balcony and Jacuzzi. Located at 22 Port Court in the Shipwatch community of Miramar Beach , "Sweet Retreat" is listed at $1,750,000.
