capecoralrealtor: Home AC Service Tips for Buyers & Sellers - 03/03/18 02:18 PM
In Southwest Florida, our AC units pretty much run 24/7 trying to combat the hot and humid summer days/nights. Sometimes my AC runs year round as we also have hot winter days! Although it’s best to hire a professional HVAC contractor to do an annual inspection there are preventive maintenance things you can do at home. 
Replace your filter at least once per month during the summer when your AC is working the hardest to cool your home.  Clear the air conditioner’s drainage hole by using a paper clip or a wire to poke through it. An obstructed drainage hole can lead to operational issues. Change the batteries … (2 comments)

capecoralrealtor: Why Should You Use A Realtor To Buy Or Sell Your Home? - 03/03/18 01:55 PM
A Realtor's job is to act as a liaison between buyers and sellers. 
When Representing Buyers:
Realtors have access to more information than you can find on Realtor.com or other real estate websites. Sometimes there are notes between agents in the MLS that are important for you to know but won't have access to if you aren't working with a Realtor.  We have up to date information and can set up an alert email so you will be one of the first to receive new listings!  We negotiate on your behalf making sure you get the best purchase price possible. We do all the … (2 comments)

capecoralrealtor: Waterfront Living in Southwest Florida! - 03/03/18 09:24 AM
In Southwest Florida, one of the most desirable homes is on the water with Gulf access! Living by the water or near a beach means 24/7 access to sun, surfing, boating, fishing, and fun! It's also a place where your friends and family want to visit often, a little too often for most. Nothing compares to a beach sunset and Florida offers some of the best beaches in the world! 
 
Here are a few fun facts about 2 of my favorite cities in Southwest Florida:

capecoralrealtor: Southwest Florida Real Estate & Economy - 02/12/18 10:45 PM
As a real estate broker in Southwest Florida, I want to stress the opportunities for selling real estate in the area. The real estate market has remained very strong and home values are on the rise. It is definitely a strong market for resale and new construction. 
Since the market is so strong, some homes are not on the market very long. Some homeowners are selling their home and can't find or buy another home quick enough which is creating a great opportunity for rental homes. 
The Florida economy is thriving & employment opportunities continue to increase with an expected 180,000 new jobs … (0 comments)

capecoralrealtor: Tips for selling your home - 02/03/18 08:55 PM
Thinking About Selling Your Home? It's time to think about curb appeal and the first impression of your home. I always suggest to my sellers to have a friend or neighbor tour their home to see it from a potential buyer's perspective.
Curb appeal, curb appeal, curb appeal! If a potential buyer drives by your home and the curb appeal is not appealing, they will not schedule an appointment to see your home. Air out your home. Get rid of any pet odors, smoke odors, cooking odors, any odor and don't try to mask them with an air freshener. Make sure all closets … (3 comments)
