sellstae advantage realty: Kids Say The Darndest Things - 11/25/08 06:06 AM
Greetings from beautiful Cape Coral, Florida! It has been quite busy down here and unfortunately I have not had a lot of time to dedicate to my blog! But I guess that is a good thing that once again the contracts are being written and real estate is hot!
The passed 2 weekends we attended the wedding of two different friends, both of whom are school teachers. I guess that being around school teachers, especially 1st grade teachers, it is very likely that you will hear some great stories. Whether they are true or not, who knows, but they are amusing! … (7 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Thankful In Cape Coral - 11/25/08 02:33 AM
As we get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving here in beautiful Cape Coral, many buyers and real estate agents in our marketplace do have reason to give thanks this year! Reports out this morning show that the sale of single family homes in Lee County rose 78% from the same time last year! There were 720 single family homes sold in October up from 405 last October! Condo sales were up 48%!
This increase is due to the fact that the median price for a single family home in October was $139,500 a drop of 42% since last October! With the stock market on … (0 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Does Anybody Know This Guy? - 09/08/08 01:42 PM
I recently had a friend who became a policeman and I could not help but to wonder how long it will be until his new authority will go to his head! You know the type of person I am talking about.......
A Department of Agriculture representative stops at a Florida ranch and talks with an old rancher. He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for your water allocation.”   The old rancher says, “Okay, but don't go in that field over there.”   The Goverment Representative says, “Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government … (6 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Back in "Hurricane Free" Cape Coral Florida!!! - 09/08/08 08:48 AM
I can't believe I've been back in Cape Coral, from vacation for one week and still haven't posted an entry on my blog.  I guess my wife that he was wrong, when she said that I could not last without posting an entry on my blog!  Since I'd been back in town, the real estate market has been running me crazy!  Buyers in all price ranges from the entry level prices right up to the Gulf access waterfront homes!  It sure is a welcome change after the last 2 1/2 years!
 So let's see what's transpired since I've been gone, well … (1 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Cape Coral Is Heating Up!!! - 08/13/08 12:01 PM
Cape Coral is definitely heating up, not only temperature and humidity wise, but also when it comes to real estate! As I have told you in previous posts, the real estate market has been busy for the last few months, with most sales being in the lower spectrum.  Starter homes anywhere from 80,000 to 150,000 were moving at a great rate! Recently we have seen an influx of buyers for the for higher priced homes, especially Gulf access homes. Homes that a few years ago were selling for $500,000 and $600,000 are now being listed through short sales and foreclosures for … (1 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Good News, Bad News for Cape Coral , Fort Myers and Lee County, Florida! - 08/07/08 08:28 AM
So is the glass half full or half empty? I guess that's what you have to ask yourself when you review the latest figures just released by the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach for July 2008. They report that a total of 745 homes were sold in July 2008 and unbelievable increase of 87.7% over July 2007! That's the good news!
Values have dropped again, as the median price of an existing single-family home sale was down to $145,000 a drop of 38% from $235,000 in July 2007! That is the bad news!
The supply of homes … (1 comments)

sellstae advantage realty: Don't Beleive What You Read-----------Here is Proof!!!! - 08/07/08 06:46 AM
It's another beautiful day down here in Cape Coral Florida hot and humid 93°! I certainly have been reading many number of posts that talk about how the media beats up our business!  And we have always heard," Don't believe what you read." While I know that is the case, because the media is saying now is a terrible time to buy and prices are back to where they were in 2001!  Why would now not be a good time to buy?  So once again, I guess it's true,"Don't believe what you read!"
Here's the proof I told you I had. … (3 comments)
