Something for Everyone!

Our island condos have quite a bit to offer and I believe we have something for everyone! We are having a good year with condo sales, and we also have a great inventory for our upcoming season.

On Sanibel you have 107 condo complexes to choose from, and as a long-time island resident I can help you find just the right fit for you and your family. Some condos are geared more for owner use, and some are geared for rentals, and some are geared for both. I can help explain to you all the different choices. Shopping for condos can be fun!

Currently Sanibel Island has 130 condos listed for sale. Asking prices start at $169,000 for a 1/1 at Colonnades Condo to $2,999,900 for a 3/3.5 at Sedgemoor of Sanibel on the Gulf.

Listings show that 103 are gulf view or gulf front, 10 are on the bay, and 3 are on a canal.

The Sanibel condo market this year has been fairly busy with a total of 150 condos being under contract or closed since the first of the year.

Captiva Island has approximately 18 condo complexes, with a total of 56 condos currently listed for sale. Asking prices start from $225,000 for a 1/1 at Tennis Villas to $2,000,000 for a 3/3 located in South Seas Beach homes.

Captiva has had 33 condos either close or currently pending so far this year.

So! Is this your year to buy an island property? I think it should be! Prices are reasonable and have just started to climb. The housing problems seem to be behind us and it's again time for buyers to enter our market. Sanibel's beaches and sights are still here and are waiting for you. Give me a call today so I can start your search for the perfect island property.

I would also like to show you this video (left) made by one of our talented local videographers. This video shows our area in all its beauty. Take a few minutes to watch this video - and then give me a call so I can make you a part of this special area of the world!

Beaches, shelling, boating, restaurants, shopping, nature and privacy - you need look no further!

As you can tell, I love this area. I've lived here for years and love showing Sanibel and Captiva off to our visitors. Whether it's a gulf front on Captiva, a bay front with a dock, or an interior property near our National Wildlife Refuge, we have a bit of everything and I'm sure we have just the right place for you!

Call me Today!

Thanks!

Take a Tour!

 

Did you know you can take a quick tour of some of our favorite neighborhoods? I've been putting together web pages and videos of Sanibel and Captiva for you to enjoy as you start your search of island properties. Our summer weather is almost here and it's a great time to enjoy all the sights and fun things to do on the islands. Besides searching for your island home, summer is great for birding, fishing, shelling and just enjoying miles and miles of our word famous beach!

SarahAshton.com - The Best Place To Start!

This week I would like to point out some of the fun and useful things that you can do with my website! From interesting facts about Sanibel and Captiva Islands to informative videos of our neighborhoods and condos, this is a one-stop site for all your island questions.

The Captiva video on the  right is a great way to check out Captiva Island and what it has to offer. I also have a Captiva webpage, a "Downtown" Captiva webpage along with links to our restaurants and marinas! I also have a video of my Gulf front Captiva listing for you to enjoy.

Captiva is world famous for its beaches, sights and quaint style and I'd love to be able to show you around!

If you want to search for properties, my site has the most modern and useful search engine you will find. You can search with whatever criteria you wish, or by map (left), or subdivision or condo. It's easy to use and you can save your searches and email your results to friends and relatives.

I even have a page of important numbers you might need when you decide to move to the islands.

As you drive around the island checking out which areas or condos look good to you, you can use my mobile site as you travel around the island. You can search properties with your smart phone or tablet as well as learn about the area and what it has to offer.

If you want to check out Sanibel before you get to the island, I have a couple of videos I made of the east end of the island. It's a great place to start! Click Here! I'm also proud of a video I have of one of Sanibel Island's most popular sites - The J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

As for our local neighborhoods and condos, my condo page and neighborhood page have links to each area along with video tours of each area. This is a wonderful way to check out all the different areas of the island without leaving your home!

Each area has local information, an area map and virtual tour of the neighborhood or condo!

Other fun things you can do on my website -
How about a visit to our lighthouse?
Check out where our miles and miles of walking/bike trails lead!
How about how to go "Green" or to download my Green Guide!
Check out my listings along with videos!
Tips for the Buyer and the Seller!
And, of course, Contact Me for answers to ALL your questions!
Or you can just connect with me on Facebook or Pinterest!

My site has lots more to offer and please feel free to check out all my pages and links!

Ocean's Reach

Located at 2230 Camino Del Mar Drive on Sanibel Island, The Ocean's Reach condominium is another island favorite! This condo has 64 units that are ALL direct gulf front! The views are spectacular and unforgettable.

The travel website TripAdvisor has voted Ocean's Reach as the number one place to stay on Sanibel.

The units are either one bedroom, one bath or two bedroom, two bath - perfect for personal use or to put in the rental program as income property.

The first Sanibel property to be named a "Florida Green Lodge," Ocean's Reach offers a heated pool with a view of the gulf, picnic areas, gas grills, bike rentals, beach chairs and umbrellas, tennis, basketball, shuffleboard, an osprey nest (with webcam) and even a butterfly garden.

Currently there is one condo listed at Ocean's Reach, a two bedroom, two bath listed at $829,990. This is a popular resort/condo and if you want to be notified when a new listing becomes available, just contact me and I can be sure you are kept well informed! I can put you into an automatic system that notifies you for whatever real estate criteria you are looking for.

To see more about this terrific condo you can go to my Ocean's Reach webpage. You can also check out my Ocean's Reach visual tour to locate the resort on a map.

Our summer is in full swing and I'm happy to say we are still busy and beach goers and shell seekers are out and enjoying our islands!

Summer is a favorite time for locals and visitors alike. The fishing, shelling, wildlife preserves and all we have to offer is at its best!

If you are lonely for Sanibel and Captiva, please give me a call (239-691-4915) or use my contact form and I can keep you updated on what I believe are the best real estate deals for you to consider!

Come on down and relax and enjoy!

Thanks!
Sarah
