cape coral: Don't "Move" to Cape Coral, FL - 09/23/15 05:44 AM

As a real estate agent in Cape Coral, I probably shouldn't tell anyone not to move here. It's a beautiful city, with over 400 miles of canals (more than Venice, Italy!), local festivals and parks, sporting and recreation around every corner, and amazing diversity in housing options. But this isn't enough to "move" to Cape Coral. 
Why Not?
Because if you're going to buy a home in Cape Coral, FL, you'll want to become a Florida resident! And living in Florida changes your life! Leisure is the name of the game; golf, swimming, fishing, unique local restaurants, and boating are no longer amenities-- … (1 comments)

cape coral: 2008 New Year - 01/01/08 12:29 AM
Welcome to 2008
...this year will be great.
Whether you are going to continue in your current career or start a new one, have a plan.
I really can't believe that so many people conduct their business without one. I have written a business plan each year since I got started in real estate.
I've learned a thing or two each year about how to create this plan. Last year for instance, I failed to break down my daily activities & ended up NOT making my goals for the year. The decline in the real estate market certainly didn't assist me much but I … (6 comments)

cape coral: Cape Coral News - 12/23/07 01:41 AM
Hey Look, we made it into the :)
See article here

Unfortunately it wasn’t the best perception of Cape Coral, Florida. So here’s my take….

Prices are down – yes. They are down. Why? Because investors, I mean speculators tripped over each other to put money down on houses, land & new projects in 2004-2006, peaking in 2005. People who had no information about the area other than “my buddy made some money in Cape Coral real estate” started buying houses here.
Many builders wanted to help these un-savvy investors & offered great deals like $1,000 down … (3 comments)

cape coral: Lee County Property Taxes - 08/22/07 10:24 AM
Lee County, Florida Property Taxes If you own property in Lee County, Florida you should have received your new trim notice.
If you do you would have noticed a pretty significant decrease in your taxes.
I think the biggest reductions are on vacant land.
FYI, vacant land in Cape Coral maxed out in 2005 about $90-100,000 & decreased in 2006/2007 to about $25,000 for the same lot worth $100,000 then. Mind you, vacant land in Cape Coral had values of $1,000-5,000 from the early 80s up until about 2002 when we watched them steadily increase up to those … (3 comments)

cape coral: Seller Financing – Advice for Sellers - 08/06/07 05:44 AM
My suggestion to the looming mortgage seller financing.
Why? Soon many would-be home buyers will not be able to obtain financing to buy a house. Lenders are tightening up as investors are being more cautious with lending.
Would be home buyers will either be renting or buying with seller financing.
There are many options to seller financing.
You could offer part or all (depending upon your current mortgage) of the financing to the buyer.
You could offer to sell the home on a lease option or lease purchase. This could assist the buyer into fixing up their dinged credit, earning more income, saving a substantial … (2 comments)

cape coral: Cape Coral Builder Removing Fixtures & Appliances - 06/07/07 07:56 AM
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 … (0 comments)
