Has the Real Estate Market finally started rebounding?

Could be.  I just closed on the sale of a Townhome in south Ft. Myers - near the Bell Tower and it closed 10% higher than the last sale of a comparable property there. 

This is not exactly true as the sale prior to mine was a short sale.  However, the sale that closed today was not a distressed sale and it was also a cash deal.  This makes me think that perhaps some buyers out there are recognizing value and are willing to pay a bit more for the real sales at this time.  All in all it was very encouraging to see a real sale of a really nice townhome.  The buyer got a good deal and the seller got to make their move.

I have just posted a great video on my website featuring the Chateaux Sur Mer neighborhood of Sanibel Island!  Click Here to find out more about the property and to watch the video of the Chateaux Sur Mer area and the available lot.

As I mentioned in my last blog - I just listed a wonderful lot in this neighborhood.  The lot is just steps from the deeded beach access.  Miles and miles of Sanibel beach awaits!

Hi - I just listed a great Sanibel Island lot for sale.  It is in the Chateaux Sur Mer subdivision and is really close to the Gulf of Mexico.  Best of all - it is just steps away from the deeded beach access to an absolutely gorgeous beach.  Check it out by clicking Here!

This cleared, level lot is roughly 1/2 acre and can support a good size house and pool.  If you have a dream about building your dream home on Sanibel Island, this is definitely worth checking out. And if you are thinking about building - don't forget to check out the"Build Green" section of my website. Sanibel real estate has never looked better!

Hi,

Captiva Island is another very special place on the Southwest coast of Florida.  Located just north of Sanibel Island, which is just west of Ft. Myers, Florida - the only ways to get to Captiva Island is via a causeway to Sanibel Island or by boat. 

In my efforts to assist my clients and visitors to the wonders of Sanibel and Captiva Islands, I have started a video series.  I introduced the East end of Sanibel Island in my last one and this one is dedicated to the "Downtown" section of Captiva Island.  This is where most of the Restaurants and shops are located.  Take a look and let me know what you think. 

You can check it out in my "Captiva" section Here, or view the video in YouTube Here.

You have to love Sanibel and Captiva Islands!

Hi,

It's November 2nd and oh, what a weekend and oh, what a start to the Season.  Halloween is a fun time on Sanibel Island and Captiva Island.  On Friday and Saturday there were at least 6 Halloween related fund raisers and parties.  Among them were the Island Paws "Howl-O-Ween Party with their pet costume contest and Yappy Hour, The Trunk or Treat at the Sanibel Community Church, The Fall Family Carnival at The Community House and, of course,  the Voodoo Island Party at 'Tween Waters Inn - just to name a few.

It is a great time as many of our seasonal residents return to Sanibel Island and Captiva Island so getting back together with friends is what we do.  From now through Easter the Islands will be hopping with many fund raisers for groups like CROW, SCCF, FISH, START, and PURRE.  Coming up we have the Cracker Festival for START - Solutions to Avoid Red Tide - November 6th and the Wines in the Wild to benefit SCCF - Sanibel - Captiva Conservation Foundation on November 14th just to name two. 

This weekend also marked the start of the Sanibel Farmers Market held each Sunday from 8am - 1pm at Tahitian Gardens Plaza on Sanibel.  We went yesterday and it was fantastic!  The fresh produce, bread, cheese and fish were first rate as were the plants and other goodies!  Fun Fun Fun!

As you make your plans to come back to Sanibel Island and Captiva Island, be sure to check out what is going on on the islands when you visit!   Drop me an email if you want any suggestions!
