Overall, the Southwest Florida Real Estate Report shows real estate transactions increase for the week of June 2nd in Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs and Estero. Compared to the prior week 293 properties sold versus 149 properties sold during the week of May 26th. This significant real estate transactions increase in SWFL shows the market continues to be strong despite the fact we are out of season. Or are we? Season is lasting longer and longer each year as more people move to the area for 6 months of the year. For those of you who may not be aware, any resident who lives in the state for at least six months each year does not have to pay state income tax. So, buying a second home or retiring in the state of Florida will actually save you money!

Also, if you are considering new construction, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours. There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you.
