Marco Island Condo ImageMoving to a new town or buying an investment property is always a tough decision.  Do you go with your heart and take the plunge or take the "safer" more comfortable option of staying where you are?  If you're like most people on Marco Island, the only option is to take the plunge.  It seems like everyone you meet has come to town to fulfill some kind of dream.  They're here from all over: Boston, Chicago, New York, and even Canada.  Most of them came to town to visit one day and decided they had to find a way to come back permanently or at least, come back for 6 months out of the year.  The area is just so compelling!  It truly feels like you're living in paradise.

There is also so much to do on Marco Island.  You would think because it's a small

One of the great things about Marco Island is all of the boating access that's available.  It has to be one of the best places on earth to live if you love to sail, fish or just cruise around.  There's also plenty of kayaking, paddleboarding, kitesurfing and windsurfing opportunites.  There are numerous places to put in and a large majority of the condos and homes have water access. 

One of the best places to live in Marco Island if you love to boat is what's known as the "Southend".  There is an entire area on the southwest side of the island devoted to boating condos.  One of the largest is known as Eagle Cay.  It features 5 buildings with 126 units ranging from 2BR/2BA to 3BR/2BA.  If you're looking for something more intimate, Ebb Tide only has

Yes, it's true.  Marco Island single-family home sales are lagging a little behind condos and lots as we move through the summer. Nobody is really complaining, though.  What has been a busy season for all of us continues.  Overall numbers are strong but single-family-homes are not quite keeping up with lots and condos. Of course, only taking June snapshots isn't the best analysis but it is a fast and dirty way to take the market's temperature. 

Compared to June, 2011, SFHs sold are down 5%, avererage selling price is up 0.5% but the median price has fallen over 16%. The low median price number is certainly a shocker but I think we'll see prices bouncing in a range for some time.

Marco Island Condos, on the other hand, are having a fantastic

Marco Island Beach Condo Image

Have you ever dreamed of living on the beach?  How about having a view that goes on for miles?  This is what's possible when you purchase one of the condos on the gulf beaches of beautiful Marco Island.  The choices are endless.  You can choose from a view of the Gulf of Mexico or views of Marco Island.   One to two bedroom units are the most plentiful but three bedrooms are also available in some of the condos. 

There are so many different types of condos available, the best way to start searching is probably by price.  Once you decide on a maximum price, you can narrow down your selection by square footage, updates, amenities and view. 

Speaking of amenities, I think you'll definitely be "wowed" by the amenities offered by any of the beach
