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!
Sanibel and Captiva are known for shells, beaches, nature and relaxation - and, of course, golf! Sanibel has three golf neighborhoods and Captiva has one. Our local championship courses are a big draw for lots of buyers and visitors.
Let's take a look at our recent sales, and current listings in our golfing communities. Last year our golf neighborhoods had brisk sales, and this year appears to be the same!
Sanibel's golf neighborhoods consist of The Dunes, Beachview (recently renamed the Sanibel Golf Course), and the Sanctuary. The Dunes and Sanibel Golf Club are both public courses, the Sanctuary is members only.
For an update on current listings, Beachview has13 homes listed, from a 3/2 for $759,000 to a 4/4 for $1,595,000.
The Dunes currently has 8 homes listed, from a 3/2 for $540,000 to a 4/4 for $1,200,000.
The Sanctuary has 9 homes listed, from a 4/3.5 for $748,000 to a 5/5 for $3,495,000.
Besides having some fantastic listings in golf communites, sales show an active interest in these areas. Check out our current and past sales:
This year there have been 22 homes closed in the Dunes, with 2 pending closing.
Last year during the same time period (1/1/12 to 10/1/12), 19 Homes closed.
