sellstate advantage realty: Crazy in Cape Coral!!! - 03/26/09 03:04 PM
I just wanted to let everyone I am alive and well in Cape Coral, Florida! Wow, what a run we have been on the last 3 months. It is like someone turned the faucet back on and we haven't stopped since. It seems that every home on the market is in a "multiple offer" situation and they are looking for "highest and best"! Our agents are busier than they have been in years and although we are making less due to the prices, it is awesome to be busy! I have been working with our agents and clients and it seems … (3 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: This I Understand!!! I Hope We All Do!! - 10/30/08 08:51 AM
  Finally, an explanation that makes sense! Think about it before you go to the polls!
       "Bar Stool Economics"
     Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten
     comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would
     be split something like this:
      The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
        The fifth would pay $1.
        The sixth would pay $3.
        The seventh would pay $7.
        The eighth would pay $12.
        The ninth would pay $18.
        The tenth man (the … (6 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: Everything Is Dropping In Cape Coral - 10/29/08 05:18 AM
Baby it's cold outside! We woke to temperatures in the 40's this morning! Brrrrrr! Nothing to worry about though, it is already up to 70 and headed to 80 again by Friday! It was actually refreshing this morning and it is always fun driving around Cape Coral and looking at people dressed like it is 20 below wearing hats, mittens and even ski jackets!!
Although the temps are cooling off, the real estate deals certainly are not! I showed 5 houses yesterday all priced below $100,000! So if you are in the market to buy in Cape Coral or Ft. Myers or you … (0 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: The Chili Cook-Off! This is hysterical!! - 10/24/08 05:45 AM
Greetings from Cape Coral, Florida! Today has been one of those 5 or 6 days we get every year without any sun at all! So as often happens on those type of days it is a little dreary around town. I always look for things to make me smile on those days and the following is what did it for me on this grey day! It came from a friend of mine in Spokane, Washington! In fact I almost broke a rib laughing! Enjoy and I hope I help you if you are having a grey day!
Maybe my AR … (5 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: A Little Humor From Cape Coral - 10/21/08 09:18 AM
Well the humidity is gone and the nights are cooling down to the 6o's, But that is the only thing cooling off in Cape Coral! The real estate deals are hotter than they have been in years. Buyers are everywhere and it is a welcomed change!
I was reading recently that baby boomers retirement will peak in 2011! More people retiring at one time than ever before! I would like to be one of them but that will probably be a little premature for me! Since turning 50 a few years ago I continually receive emails from friends who want to … (6 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: Why Realtors Fail! - 10/06/08 10:46 AM
I seems like only yesterday that I arrived in Cape Coral, Florida and in reality it has been over 8 years! Wow, how time flys when you are having fun! Well, I was having fun,for five years and then the market changed and the fun disappeared, but it is coming back! And although things have changed, I have come to the realization that they remain the same! Let me explain what I mean!
When I arrived in Florida in 2000 I had no intentions of selling real estate! I was working for an investor and it was my job to identify … (14 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: Are You Looking For A Way To Make Money Today? - 09/29/08 03:42 PM
Greetings from beautiful Cape Coral, Florida. It has been a little wet over the last week in our usually sunny city. But considering that it is still hurricane season, I guess a few rainy days should be expected. Over the last few years I have looked at a lot of things to try to supplement my income. I had yet to find anything that had any merit. And then earlier this month someone I had met through a business associate told me about something brand new. I couldn't believe it, I thought I had heard it all!
I do not want … (5 comments)

Greetings from beautiful Cape Coral, Florida! The latest numbers are out for our area sales in August and depending on your perspective the news is either good or bad!

It has been another big month for buyers in Cape Coral, Florida. The deals are unbelievable! The focus is starting to shift from the entry level homes to the larger waterfront pool homes! In our office the client rooms have been filled daily with buyers from all over! We recently have been receiving a large number of inquiries from German and British buyers!!
I spoke to an agent today who has been in the business in Southwest Florida for five years. I asked her," How is business?" She looked at me and with a big smile she said,"I have sold more … (1 comments)

sellstate advantage realty: Pick Your Words Carefully - 08/21/08 07:39 AM
Greetings from not so sunny Cape Coral, Florida! I know this is Thursday, and I missed the Hump Day humor!  Sorry about that, but we had a date with Faye.  We were prepared for the worst, but other then some strong wind, and lots of rain Cape Coral survived unscathed! The outer bands of the tropical storm are still affecting us with intermittent showers throughout the course of the day and some gusty winds!
The buyer activity was back to normal today with contracts being written on houses in all price ranges!  Believe it or not, we have somebody submit an … (0 comments)
