  • Sales are up Year over Year.
  • Corp. Sellers still dominate the market.
  • Lehigh Acres seems to have found pricing desirable to buyers.
  • The high foreclosure areas are the leading edge of increasing sales due to the inventory available.
  • Short sales are still not prevalently closing
    • 21 SFR closed in 2007
    • 98 SFR closed in 2008
      • 5407 Active Short Sale Listings Currently.
  • North Fort Myers seems to not be affected as much by Foreclosures. East of Slater road looks pretty much the same pre-2005.
