I write about anything and everything to do with Real Estate in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, North Fort Myers, Estero, and Bonita Springs. Check me out and learn some stuff!
A "Normal Market."  It's hard to define. When Linda and I arrived here in Cape Coral in 2002, we didn't know what to expect.  We got our real estate licenses and went to work.  Having never been Realtors before, it was simply "nose to the grindstone" and try to develop relationships.  Help ANYONE...
This article is courtesy of By MCKENZIE CASSIDY, mcassidy@breezenewspapers.com Cape Coral home sales are undoubtedly on the rise, yet experts point out that the inventory of empty residences isn't dwindling as quickly as some would expect. According to a report from Florida Realtors and the Unive...

Criteria Used:  1500 to 10,000 sq ft Living Area.  No "year built" specified.  3-5 Bedroom, 2-4 Bath, 2-3 Car Garages. We'll start with an analysis of the ACTIVE listings (Homes still available)...
A gentleman (I'm making assumptions here, but he seems like a decent guy) contacted me recently after having read my blog.  He mentioned that I haven't gone over Gulf Access Waterfront homes in my analysis yet - and he was right! So (we'll just call him Jay) Jay, here it is.  Hope it provides som...
Oh, that's a wonderful thing.  I noticed it myself just driving down the 41 toward Estero from Fort Myers.  Too many cars for "off season," right?  Well, it's gettin' cold early up north ("Back East" to you Westerners!) and they are flocking here early it seems. You know what I love about snowbir...
Saw this article and since it's so important to our businesses and more specifically, possibly financially DAMAGING to our SELLERS, it's crucial to include it here.  Well written, so why reinvent the wheel?  Enjoy.Real estate is local when it comes to market conditions and market trends. Real est...
It sounds so great, doesn't it? It's a pitch I've been hearing on the radio recently -- AND a long time ago. Well, there is VERY little risk to the agent pitching the deal . . . in fact, a local agent who is proposing this method of selling homes has, to the best of my ability to search, never ha...
Here we go again!  I've decided to run the most recent numbers in Cape Coral, Florida -- since it was the NUMBER ONE spot in the nation for foreclosures over the past years, it makes sense to see where we are today. Homes included are SINGLE FAMILY, BUILT BETWEEN 2000 AND 2009, OVER 1200 SQ FT, O...
Considering some polls put public opinion of Real Estate Agents somewhere between attorneys and used car salesmen, I personally smile when an agent doing bad things is finally busted. Sure, it might further damage our overall reputation, but these people need to be removed from our industry -- on...
