  The gated community of Bonita Bay, located in Bonita Springs Florida, features homes and condominiums ranging in price from $200,000 to well over $5,000,000. The turn over of homes is usually expected to be around 10% in any given year but the spectacular West Coast of Florida is not following the old patterns. With more and more boomers coming to Florida and fewer people leaving the area because they miss the cold and snow of the North, we are seeing inventory turnover reducing. The pace of inventory reduction is often referred to as the Absorption Rate. Loosely defined, it is the rate the current inventory will be depleted based on the sales in the period being examined. Below I have assembled the data on Bonita Bay for the last 365 days ending with sales reported to MLS ending June...

Bonita Springs Home Sales Statistics May 2015May 2015 marks the first time that I have prepared the real estate market stats for Bonita Springs and Estero … with an audience.  I’ve brought a family member on board so I have a little birdie on my shoulder learning the ropes, now. When I was collecting the numbers for the statistics Angela asked my why I prepared market reports.  The short answer was that consumers, both buyers and sellers, need to know the statistics especially in a market where inventory is tight.  Further I explained that if she was trying to help someone buy a home priced under $200,000 it would be important to know that it was only about 20%of our market right now and getting smaller and smaller because the bottom of the real estate market is selling off.  It was abo...

The following charts illustrate the absorption rate, the time it will take for the current inventory of homes in  various price ranges to be sold in the gated community of Shadow Wood At the Brooks located in the Village of Estero, an area formerly known as Bonita Springs..This rate has been used in various forms to be both a guide for Buyers and Sellers. In the following studies I have indicated Buyer's Markets when the time for the inventory to clear is greater than 8 months. In the case of a Seller's Market, the time period is less than 4 months while anything in between is considered a Neutral market.A Buyer's Market usually means that the Buyer has more leverage when negotiating with a Seller over the price of the home. The converse is true in a Seller's Market when the Seller can ...
