Folks who read my last Blog about Sanibel Island Real Estate were asking - what about Captiva Island Real Estate?

So here goes

For January through September 2009 versus January through September 2010 Captiva Real Estate differed greatly from Sanibel.

In all Captiva Island real estate categories - Houses, Condos and Land - the number of transactions is way down from 2009.  For houses and condos, the prices are down as well. Captiva has had an amazingly slow couple of years and the prices have continued to drop.  As the stock market and the overall economy picks up, I believe that Captiva Island real estate will rebound.

Below are the 2009 figures followed by the 2010 figures. 

As I said in my Sanibel real estate report - Is it a good time to buy - yes!  With lower prices and low interest rates, it is a very good time to buy!  Let me know if I can answer any questions for you about Island Real Estate
