The Latest Info On Near Beach Sanibel Sales

It's nice, in fact great, to see our Sanibel real estate market getting fully on its feet again! This year, and last year, have been a continuation of the national economic recovery. It helps that bank rates are continuing to be at historic lows and home prices are extemely reasonable.

Sanibel and Captiva real estate have always been in demand, and it was the economic downturn that dragged us down. Lots of people were just waiting for the recovery to start before they jumped back into the market. Sanibel and Captiva are incredible places to live! As a long-time Sanibel resident, I can definitely relate!

In this blog I want to take a look at our Sanibel near-beach home sales.

Currently we have 52 near-beach Sanibel homes listed. Asking prices start at $424,900 for a two bed, two bath, 1401 sq. ft. ground level home on Tahiti Drive, to a four bed, three bath, 6045 sq. ft. home on Dingman Drive for $2,495,000. There are currently 5 near-beach homes under contract and pending sale.

So far this year we've had 71 near-beach Sanibel homes sold (that's right! 71). The listing to sales price, so far this year, has been 91%.

We are on track toward a great year. Last year during the same period we had 70 near-beach Sanibel home sales, which shows that for two years our market has been healthy. This is a great time to start your search for island property - rising market, low rates, good inventory and reasonable sales prices.

For a snapshot of our current market listings:

From a 3/1 on Court Place for $289,000, to a 3/5 for $23,000,000 on San-Cap Drive.

Seaspray

Lately I've been telling you about great neighborhoods centrally located on Sanibel Island, and Seaspray is another one!

Beautifully landscaped, this area offers a small community of beach front and near beach properties.
Seaspray is near the 20 miles of Sanibel biking/walking trails, as well as the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Just a short distance down Sanibel-Captiva Road is Blind Pass separating Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Captiva Island offers three marinas with fishing guides, boat rentals and some of the areas best restaurants!
Currently there are two homes for sale in Seaspray. One is a four bedroom, five bath gulf front home for $2,348,000 and the other is also a gulf front. A five bed, five bath asking $3,395,000.

Homes in Seaspray are secluded with pristine tropical landscaping that fits in perfectly in our Sanibel Island lifestyle! Sanibel real estate at its best!
Seaspray is located just off of Sanibel Captiva Road and includes a community swimming pool and two tennis courts for your enjoyment.

Some of the homes in Seaspray also have their own pools. This neighborhood is just about perfect for enjoying everything our islands have to offer!
For more information about Seaspray you can visit my Seaspray webpage, as well as watch a short video tour of this great Sanibel Island neighborhood! Sanibel Real Estate at its Best!

If you have been thinking of buying on our islands, or in Fort Myers, now is the time to contact me for all the latest listings. Our winter busy season is just getting ready to start and we now have a nice inventory of homes, homesites and condos available.
If you are coming to this area in the future, or you just want to stay informed about homes or condos that would fit your buying criteria, please give me a call at 239-691-4915, or through my contact form. If you'd, like, I can enter your email and criteria into my automatic system and be notified whenever a new listing fitting your specs becomes available! Simple as that!
Thanks!
