Making Dreams Come True
Morgan has been selling real estate since 2017. Prior to that, she was a stay-at-home mom. The thing she enjoys doing most is spending time with family and taking trips to Universal Studios. She loves being outdoors and has just recently found a love for hunting with her boyfriend Drew.
She has been a resident of Bay County since 2008. Initially, she went to school to work in television/radio. She worked as an On Air Personality at a top 40 radio station for a short period of time before she realized she needed more personal interaction with people. She modeled for a few years in her 20s and has played Extra roles in a few tv shows and commercials. In her free time, you may find her shopping. Two of her favorite things in life are clothes and home decor. She loves to help friends, family, and customers with their decorating inspiration.
Morgan enjoys getting to work with homebuyers and sellers, and over the past years she has had to opportunity to work with so many. She really enjoys the experience of helping a first-time homebuyer. There is so much excitement and joy in purchasing your very first home, that is your own. She’s had the honor of working with several military families moving to the area. Several of those families were unfamiliar with the area, so she was able to show the homes virtually instead of in person.

Buy Land and Build A Home or Buy An Existing Home in Bay County
Your future home awaits and we are here to help.
Are you in the process of locating your next dream home? If you are, you may be considering the differences between buying land and building new versus buying an existing home. Both of these options can be great, but each has a different journey to completion.
Fortunately, the real estate market in Bay County, Florida is still activity pushing along. And while there is not as much inventory, compared to 2020, there are still land & homes for sale across our wonderful community.
You can buy a neighborhood lot in a beachy or in-town community, or possibly find acres of land in the northern part of Bay County to start your own farm. Lynn Haven has become a very popular community to call home and the Cove has long been a wonderful community for those seeking to be near downtown Panama City. Lots and lots of choices to create a future that is uniquely you.
It is far more complex to buy land and build a home than it is to buy a home that is already built and move-in ready. Someone has to be available to make the continuous decisions that go along with such a project. And it is often times more expensive, too. Land costs, architectural design, permits, foundation work, framing, site work, exterior finishes, interior finishes, mechanical rough-ins— the details can add up rather quick. When building a custom home, $350,000 doesn’t build a palace in Bay County in 2020. Here is an example of what a $350,000 build budget would look like:
- Architectural Design: $17,430.00
- Site work. Design, Permit fees, inspections, etc.: $7,810.00
- Foundations. Excavation, concrete and retaining walls: $38,685.00
- Framing. Sheathing, trusses, etc.: $44,930.00
- Exterior finishes. Roofing, windows, and doors, etc.: $75,245.00
- Interior finishes. Drywall, flooring, insulation, paint, lights, appliances, etc.: $77,840.00
- Major systems rough-ins. Electrical, HVAC and plumbing: $35,445.00
- Hardscapes and softscapes. Driveway, fencing, landscaping, shed, etc.: $49,490.00
In contrast, the same budget of $350,000 can buy an existing home or condo, land included, that is move-in ready and waiting to welcome you home. And with the inventory in the Bay County Real Estate MLS, you can likely find your new home or investment project without too much effort.
