Affordable Marco Island

Buyers consistently ask me where they can get the most bang for their buck on the Island.  I would have to say Old Marco.  Located west of the Jolly Bridge, you'll love the Key West vibe and with the current properties on the market topping out at $549,000, you'll love the price too!  You can live in Old Marco and practically never leave.  There are several great restaurants and shopping within walking distance and a marina right down the street.  Following are some examples of what you can buy in Old Marco:

Located on 821 Elm St., this single family home features a private dock with lift and in-ground swimming pool.  The pool is screened in so you can relax and enjoy the outdoors as long as you like.  With water direct access, this home is a good

New Listing in South Seas

We have four new listings in the Marco Island MLS to talk about today - 2 homes, 1 condo and 1 lot.  The first home is a fantastic, water-direct home.  "Water-direct" is the term we use for property on the water that doesn't require its owner to navigate under a bridge on the way to the Gulf.  This particular home has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and just about 2000 s.f. of living area.  It's on a 100'x110' lot with very quick access to the Gulf. It's a super deal at only $689,000

The next home we have is located off the island in King's Lake.  The interesting thing about King's Lake, besides being a great neighborhood, is Bob Seger lives here.  At least, that's what I've heard.  The house for sale has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and

Marco Island New Homes for Sale

According to a new survey by CoreLogic, a private real estate data provider, home prices went up 4.6% in August compared to one year ago which is the "largest year-over-year increase in more than six years."  Prices also rose 0.3% between July and August which is the sixth straight month of gains.  The good news about the steady increase in prices, the increase in home sales and rising builder confidence is that it looks like our housing recovery may actually be sustainable.

The Standard & Poor's/Case Shiller index also rose in July after two straight years of declines.  Also, all of the states are seeing a rise in home prices except for six that still show a decline.  Five of these include Rhode Island, Illinois, New Jersey, Alabama and

French Village Listing Photo

This week, the most popular listing on our website is this one. It's a fantastic 2/2 in French Village. So, what's so great about it?  Well, it's across the street from the beach.  It's close to the beach access.  It's on the first floor.  It has low maintenance fees. It's in great condition. And, it's only $199,900.

French Village is located toward the southern end of the island, right on Collier Blvd.  Owners are within easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and the movie theatre.  The property was built in 1979 but you wouldn't know it by looking at it.  Like so many properties on Marco, good funding and management have kept French Village looking like new.  I think anyone would be proud to call this great property "home" or "home away from

We all have dreams that we are convinced we'll achieve one day.  Marco Island dreams are our business.  When it comes down to it, though, we are really afraid of our dreams. We're afraid of the unknown. We are afraid of actually taking the leap and making the commitment.  The grandest dreams we carry inside are tempered by a fear of failure and sometimes a fear of success.  We all know the expression, "be careful what you wish for, you might get it."  Most of us will admit that we're at least a little afraid of change. 

But change is good.  None of us are getting any younger and the clock is ticking.  The status quo, no matter how nice it may be, will satisfy us less and less over time.  We have to take action or life can get stale.  A shake-up can
