Realtor On The Run: Ft. Myers Beach Triplex 10/25/14

Real Estate Agent with Premier Florida Realty of SWFL

Last Saturday, I had the great pleasure of biking to my showing.  It's my own Listing, located on Estero Boulevard on Fort Myers Beach.  A Triplex with an owner's unit set back from the street, reminiscent of a Key West Hideaway.  My favorite unit is the front top apartment, a two bedroom with fireplace and a balcony that overlooks Estero Boulevard, the main street running through the Island, and with glimpses of the Gulf of Mexico. The top left unit is a one bedroom that comes with one of the private gardens in back.  The left bottom apartment has a larger garden with entries in both the living room and the kitchen. There is a community laundry facility for the units as well as a storage room for bikes and what not.  A tiki hut and outside sitting/dining areas are set out on the grounds amidst lush landscaping.

The client was amazed at expensive this property is, as one wouldn't guess it by looking at it from the street.  I had already emailed her the information regarding expenses and income.  The income netted from this property is impressive from the eyes of an investor.  Fort Myers Beach is a popular vacation destination during the winter months and this property is situated just across the street from the Beach and less than a mile from the Town Square.  We talked of these matters while exploring the gardens.  Only one tenant had  been home at the time of the showings,  and he had graciously waited outside in this garden while I showed the client the inside of his unit.

After the client left, I double checked that all units were secured.  I then hopped on my bicycle and headed home.

Here in San Francisco I often have the pleasure of walking to show property, or to participate in broker tour. As I head up Russian Hill from North Beach, I'll take a moment to appreciate my good fortune. It sounds like you enjoy the same, via bicycle, in Fort Myers, FL
