Tips For Buying Affordable Bonita Springs Real Estate 2016Today was Pennsylvania day … as in most of my buyers calls were folks from the Keystone state looking for Bonita Springs real estate.  This is an oddity this time of year. The geographical phone call phenomenon usually happens in the winter when it is cold out, typically when there is a blizzard, and a whole state is dreaming about living on Bonita Beach.  Today, I had more than one set of buyers looking for  what would be considered affordable real estate in the Bonita Springs area.  First, I agree up front that $200,000ish is a lot of money for a home.  Second, it’s a fact that that price point does not buy a lot in this area, especially new or newer homes in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Buyers pumped the brakes and decided to hold off on their purchases.We've talked about absorption rates before and remind both home buyers and home sellers to pay close attention to those rates this summer ....
