"The Bottom" In Cape Coral, Florida?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sellstate Advantage Realty

I hear this question daily in Cape Coral,"Have you hit bottom yet?" I guess that is the million dollar question! Well here is a little insight, today on the MLS I found a home in Cape Coral for less than $50,000! That is right- LESS THAN $50,000! Wow!! The lot that that home is on probably sold for more than $50,000 a few years ago! I heard that someone sold a lot 3 years ago for $79,000 and they recently sold the lot again for $85,000! The difference- this time the lot had a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home on it!

So is it now safe to say we have hit bottom! We tried to find a corporate owned home today for under $100,000 that did not have multiple offers on it and found it next to impossible! Most all of the REO's under $100,000 are in multiple offer situations!

As I told someone today,"You never know that you are at the bottom, until you have missed it!"

Mike - It sure seems like the bottom to me!  At least, I hope it is...  :)
