As we roll through August, it gets a little quieter on Marco Island.  While some would say that August and September are the least comfortable months in terms of heat on Marco, this is relative.  It certainly isn't heavenly like the winter months are but it really isn't bad at all.  The average high temperature here in August is 93 degrees.  It's 90 all the way up in Myrtle Beach and I can tell you from experience, Myrtle doesn't get the sea breezes we have here that seem to offset the humidity. Myrtle Beach is an sauna right now.

The real estate market gets a little quieter in August and September, too.  It always seems though, that the buyers that are in town are very serious.  Many of the customers we see these days are here with a real estate

South Seas Beachfront Condo

There were a total of eleven beachfront condos and waterfront condos listed this week with many of them looking like great buys.  Five were located in the South Seas community alone!  The lowest priced one was in Seabreeze South.  While not directly on the water, Seabreeze sits right across the street within easy walking distance of the beach.  The unit currently offered for sale is a 1BR/1BA listed at $119,500.  The Seabreeze community offers a clubhouse and one of the largest pools on the island so for the price and location, it really looks like a deal to me.

South Seas is a gated community consisting of four towers right on the beach and several waterfront condos with gulf access.  Four of the new listings this week were in the beachfront

Naples Manor Foreclosure ImageWow!  I've been telling you that the low-end is evaporating but we still see something under $50,000 once in a while.  If you're a first-time buyer, investor, or on a fixed income, we have a deal for you.  This home in south Naples is a foreclosure that just came on to the market this week.  Built in 1977, it's a ranch and has 1292 s.f., three bedrooms and 2 baths.

The home is located in the Naples Manor subdivision where sales have been brisk all year.  So far, there have been 33 sales ranging from $53,500 up to $145,000.  So, this will be the lowest sale price this year unless multiple bids bring the price up 10 grand.

Happy Marco Island HomebuyerMost buyers have two things in mind when they start looking for a home.  First, they want to make sure they find a home that has all of the features they need and desire and secondly, they want to get the best deal possible.  

When looking at buyers who have been able to save thousands of dollars off of the seller's asking price, you see a trend.  There are three things that you should be aware of before you ever submit an offer:

  • Make sure you have a clear idea of what you're looking for.  I know it sounds like commom sense but many buyers don't realize, until they've started looking, exactly what's important to them.  You have to be able to differentiate between what you desire and what you need.  Finding a home that satisfies both is ideal but
