May 2018 - Market Update

Greetings, Neighbors!

The Spring selling season is coming to an end and for some, that means heading back up north as evidenced by the lighter traffic on the road.  However, this does not mean that buyers are no longer looking! A recent Realtor.com report (Realtor.com) showed that in the month of March 2018, there were over 2 million listing page view for the Bonita Springs and Estero area alone! Now, if we add Naples and Ft. Myers to that – wow! So, if you’re thinking of listing your home for sale but are unsure because of the summer season, there are plenty of reasons to list now.  Aside the fact, that our region has numerous listing views via online portals, such as Realtor.com, but also because buyers who are looking this time of year are serious! And sellers who list this time of year are also very motivated. And, because some do not list during this time, the competition is less! Take advantage of those points and go ahead and list it! Lastly, on this p ...

Market Update - April 2018

Greetings Neighbors!
We are quickly approaching our end-of-spring and summer selling seasons; are you thinking about taking your home off the market? This time of year, we start seeing home owners pull their homes off the market and you also may be tempted to do the same. Don’t do it!  Let’s look at why you might believe this is a good idea. The point is that there are many reasons why folks believe their home won’t sell in the spring and summers seasons in Southwest Florida, but there is only one reason why it will sell – and that reason is in the numbers!
In earlier years, taking your home off the market in the spring and summer months did indeed seem like a viable option that made perfect sense. Back when the internet did not exist, the Southwest Florida real estate market did show more sales in the winter season than in the summer months. This made sense because folks were here during the winter months. They could look at homes with their agents, make ...

Market Update March 2018

Greetings, Neighbors!
Happy March! As we move into our springtime selling season, we’re seeing pending sales pick up across the Southwest Florida region.  As always, those homes that are accurately priced, especially in the $3-500K price segment, are seeing a lot of open house activity and offers.  The luxury market, homes prices at $1 million and above, have had a slower month in Bonita Springs and Estero, but is seeing activity in the Naples market.  We’re also seeing the condominium market pick up as well in Fort Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs and Estero.  The market overall continues to follow a stable path in both pricing, inventory and the days on market.
New construction continues to be a viable option for buyers, so if you’re selling this spring, you are in direct competition with all the brand-new communities, builder incentives and builder pricing!  So, that means you must be very diligent about ensuring your resale property is pr ...

Market Update: February 2018

Greetings, Neighbors!

We’re off to great start for the winter selling season in Southwest Florida. In the market, January 2018 saw lots of open house and pending activity – more than we’ve seen in past months.  Now that storm repairs and the holidays are behind us, buyers are here and ready to see properties, and they no longer want to wait! While there are still some overpriced properties on the market, overall inventory has remained stable despite potential challenges of 2016’s election and 2017’s storm.  We’re currently in a stable market where price still sells. Properties priced at fair market value will continue to sell, as those are the properties receiving multiple offers.
 
New construction homes continue to be a viable choice for buyers, but we are still urging buyers not to go it alone without their own REALTOR®, as new construction community on-site agents work for the builder/developer.  In a new constructio ...
