What will $200,000, $500,000 and $1,000,000
buy in Northwest Florida?

The sparsely populated area known as the “Forgotten Coast” near Tallahassee was hit hardest in this region, with sales slowing in 2004 and few signs of a halt to the price plunges. But in the more upscale subdivisions that hug the beach west of Panama City, sales increased last year. And in Pensacola, where the real estate downturn began in earnest five years ago, Realtors say the days of large price plunges are over, and sales prices should stabilize next year.
