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!

Sundial Resort on Sanibel Island

If you want a chance to own a piece of Sundial Beach Resort on Sanibel, this is your chance!

Sundial was purchased by CoreStates Affiliate and they are offering 110 shares at $50,000 per share.
      Sundial was previously purchased by Blackstone in a package deal which included The Dunes Golf Resort and South Seas Plantation on Captiva Island. Locals have always said that Blackstone only wanted South Seas Plantation and the inclusion of Sundial was just part of the deal. CoreStates says, "We believe that resort has been mismanaged and its potential has languished due to its current absentee ownership," which seems to prove that locals were right about Blackstone never really wanting to own Sundial.

CoreStates goes on to say, "The Sundial Beach & Golf Resort is a 38,000+ square foot multi-use resort facility on Florida's world-famous Gulf Coast. Located on Sanibel Island, the property has 8.59 acres and boasts 2,000 linear feet of unrivaled beachfront access."

We know Sundial is a gem and we hope investors take a look at this resort and see it as a great deal!    

 

I currently have a listing at the resort and you can check it out HERE. Sundial is close to the best restaurants and you can enjoy miles and miles of Sanibel's beaches right at your front door!

Have a great summer and I look forward to helping you find that perfect island property! Contact Me!

Wow!  Here we are one quarter of the way through 2011.  Time really does fly when you are having fun!

We are having fun - certainly more fun than our friends up north this winter - My girlfriend in Massachusetts texted me yesterday to let me know she had 6 inches of snow and no power - ouch.  We have had the most outstanding weather this year in the 10 years I have lived here.  Absolutely without question - warm, sunny days and cool, windows open, sleeping nights - perfect...  But I digress....

On to Real Estate...March continued in a strong fashion.  2010 to 2011 we are just about the same in closings in the March vs. March comparison.

                                        2010                 2011
Sanibel Houses                   16                    21
Sanibel Condos                  16                    12
Sanibel Vacant Land            2                      2 
                                                                                                                               

           
Comparing the total Q1 2010 closings to Q1 2011 closings we are 70 to 90 or 28% ahead of last year.    That sounds pretty impressive to me.  We also have 46 Houses and Condos under contract right now. 

Prices?  Well it is still a bit all over the map.  We are seeing more transactions in the $1 million plus range than we did all of 2010.  And we are seeing the $500 thousand to $1 million with more strength than last year.  The bargain hunters are still out there and are still finding some deals though not as easily.  The folks who need to sell are negotiating and those who do not, aren't.

What is "hot" in Sanibel Real Estate?:  Sundial 2 bedroom condos.  5 have closed this quarter and the prices have come down to a great value for these larger, gulf front, gulf view units with rental potential.  Pointe Santo de Sanibel came in 2nd with 3 closings in Q1 - 2011.  Again - good values with rental potential.

Sanibel Real Estate and Captiva Real Estate is looking better than ever! Check out my listings!  or Check out ALL the listing!

Hi,

I have just listed a great one bedroom - one bath in the Sundial Resort on Sanibel Island.  The unit has been meticulously maintained with updated furnishings and appliances. This unit participates in the Sundial Resort Rental program and grossed over $40,000 in 2008.  Enjoy the beach, the pools, the tennis and the golf at this tropical escape.  Listed for $389,000 it is one of the true resort units that can be run as a business.
Sanibel Island Real Estate at its best!
