 An exciting new commercial center in Cape Coral, on the corner of Pine Island and Pondella road called Coral Walk is progressing along very quickly. This center is being anchored by a Super Target and Staples. It will also have a Starbucks, Panera Bread, Chili's restaurant, Olive Garden restaurant and a Sports Authority. This is great news for all the residents of NW Cape Coral who are starving for retail stores to shop and dine at, and it should help the residential sector of this market that has been lacking in retail locations for some time.

TODAYS REAL ESTATE MARKETInterest RatesI remember back in the 1960's when my parents bought a new home with VA financing and their interest rate was 5.5% for a 30 year fixed mortgage. When I met my wife in the early 1990's, she already owned a home and her interest rate was 14.75%! While rates arent quite as low as they were in the 1960's, they sure are a heck of a lot better than they were in the 1990's. As far as interest rates go - it is a great time to buy.InventoryThere is more available housing for sale than any other time in the history of this area. Buyers have so many choices that sellers have to compete for their attention. No matter what a buyer desires, it is available to them right now.

"It's just Paradise!!"                                  Quality of Life and Waterfront Living that is what its all about! Welcome to the City Of Cape Coral! Cape Coral has more than 400 miles of waterways, with 222 miles of saltwater canals and 156 miles of freshwater canals. It is a boaters dream especially since many of the Cape Coral canals provide access even direct access to the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, we have other Florida luxuries too, such as golf courses, parks and beaches.   Cape Coral was built in the 1960's by two land speculators by the name of Rosen Brothers who believed that the property's location on the Gulf Coast provided abundant sunshine and almost endless opportunities for waterfront living. The Rosen Brothers pre-platted this land to approx 350,000 residential s...

Cape Coral Florida's real estate market was on fire and property values were increasing weekly during a three year period from mid 2002 to mid 2005. There were record numbers of building permits at city hall and land was being sold and then instantly put back on the market for double the price. It was a 3 year period when the cost of land had increased 500% and some homes had more than tripled in price. It seemed that everyone was quite content while all of this was going on with people bragging to each other how much more their home was worth than the month before. Stop and think about how much revenue was collected from impact fees and taxes on higher valuations during that time. Record numbers of new homes were built on previously vacant land creating higher valuations which created ...

          Put an offer infront of the Seller! They will probbly take it ! I have always suggested the best time to buy a home in southwest Florida is during the summer! The inventory of homes for sale mostly  are sellers that want to sell there home! Not like in season when you have lots of people just "testing the market while they are here for the winter" The sellers are now awaiting offers this time of year as the buyer pool drops off and getting showing appointments becomes a very welcomed event! I always suggest to the buyers, what do you think about  getting the seller to pay all of your closing costs too! Now is the time to make the offers! Buy your vacation home, waterfront property, brand new construction, condo, retirement home, or vacant land that you can call your very own p...

Wow, I just read an article in the Ft. Myers News Press about a local builder who is removing windows, doors, appliances, etc from brand new homes being built in Cape Coral.The builder is stating that they are removing the items to prevent them from being stolen while the owners are not happy with it. As the market continues to shift here in Cape Coral many investors who built new homes cannot afford them. Some were planning to move down, while MOST were expecting to sell for a profit. Well the ones who were expecting to sell for a profit have now realized that in many cases they own thousands, even a hundred thousand more than current market value. Some can afford to rent the property out and continue to make mortgage payments, others cannot. Those who cannot are facing foreclosure.Sho...

We are finding real estate deals for our customers that are close to amazing. I am now seeing prices back down to 2003-2004 values. This is awesome news for: Investors First Time Homebuyers/Current Renters Retirees Those relocating to SW Florida Ok, let's just say ALL Buyers!

Keeping in mind the current situation in Tallahassee with Tax Reform  Do you support the potential of..... 1. Raising taxes to pay for the increased lanes on I-75 2. Tolls(study indiates pricing of between 8-20 cents per mile) OrIs the right answer to have Private Industry take over?  Today, during the City Council meetings the discussion came up about The Southwest Florida Expressway Authority (SWFEA) and the proposal to advance the 10 laning of I-75 in Lee and Collier Counties. The SWFEA was created by the Florida Legislature to find ways to advance construction of additional lanes on I 75 in Lee and Collier Counties. Please visit the Southwest Florida Expressway Authority( SWFEA) web page to learn about the proposal at: http://www.swfea.com/ What do you think is the BEST Choice?

Today is the official start of Hurricane Season. We are now officially in our 'rainy season'. We were greeted today by Barry, a tropical storm. The experts are not expecting much punch out of Barry. He'll just give us a few inches, of actually much needed, rain. I'm not really a fan of rain. Growing up in Indiana, I used to LOVE sitting outside during thunderstorms. Here its just not the same somehow. Maybe there is a different pressure in the air or something. Maybe it's because I've been spoiled by Florida Sunshine for so long (coming up on 13 years).Either way, I just wanted to give Barry a proper introduction & thank him for taking it easy on us this first day of Hurricane Season.
