A Great House Behind a BUSY Road

Real Estate Agent with Florida Future Realty, Inc. BK3071625

SE Cape Coral House for SaleI have had this house listed for a few months now - in SE Cape Coral - with its central water & sewer hooked up & paid for as well (this is a big PLUS in Cape Coral).

When we first listed we were a little high but that's just when the market had began to slow down so we didn't know if it would keep heading down or come back up.

It has at least 2-3 showings a week & the only feedback I receive is that its too close to a main road - Del Prado Blvd. Well, we can't change that folks. So how much is that worth price wise? I've actually had buyer's agents tell me that their people chose an older home needing WORK at the same or higher price over this house. Its not ON Del Prado Blvd but if you are in the front yard looking across the street you see the back of buildings on Del Prado. The backyard is very nice & you see other homes' backyards.

This house was built at the end of 2002, has many great upgrades & would make a GREAT starter home.

Check out the listing for yourself below:

SE Cape Coral Home for Sale - yes I know the photos are large - sorry

We just reduced the price down to an AWESOME $229,900!!

It's a CONCRETE BLOCK 3/2/2 with a living & family room - upgraded kitchen, large screened in lanai, walk in closet! BUILT in 2002! With Water &  Sewer in & PAID!

Any other suggestions? The sellers are not willing to add landscaping or any other curb appeal, they just want out of the house - (divorce situation). The unfortunate part is that we haven't even received any 'low-ball' offers.

I upped the co-broke from 2.5% to 3.5% a while back - showings went up but again, no offers.

Any thoughts I'd appreciate.

For anyone who may have an investor client or first time homebuyer for this property -- BRING OFFERS!

Hey! That looks just like a Poinciana house. And we have a Del Prado as well. I would "Range Price" it from $219,000 to $239,000. This will substantially increase the traffic and let buyers know that the seller is willing to negotiate. Try it. It works.

I would print out the Listing, Agent report,  and emphasize the increase in the commission by writing across the page in huge print using a sharpie pen.... Make a ton of Black and white copies and physically hand deliver the info to several Real Estate Offices in the area....

If the home is within walking distance to shopping... I would make a flyer to target Seniors that don't / can't drive....Drop off the flyer to the local Senior Centers....

Since the home is single story...That is a great house for someone that can't climb stairs.  You can target Orthopedic doctor Offices, rehab centers for someone that needs a single story home for health reasons.

Target some of the businesses in the area for a person that wants to live close to His/her job... they would save on gas $$ and time.

I wish you well !!  Hang in..
