Real Estate in Fort Myers

You’d think there was a sale going on

You’d think there was a sale going on: “Get a free Pool, “Save $3000 towards closing costs”,  “Flash Sale:, “Limited time incentive of $60,000!”, “Select Savings on these move-in ready homes”.  I culled these lead-ons from today’s News-Press real estate section.

It’s true, the beginning of summer is a great time to get a bargain on new homes ( if you are one of my clients and you think I may be talking to you – I am).  But these incentives don’t necessary mean things are slow.  There are a number of reasons for these incentives:

  • Developers are anxious to keep the momentum that they have, keeping their employees, agents and builders busy
  • A kick start for new communities ( like Portico by Lennar)
  • To move inventory that has been furnished and not sold yet
  • To adjust for overpricing
  • In the case of Lennar taking over WCI – Lennar will longer be reproducing the WCI models, so they need get rid of them.
  • And they don’t want things to GET slow.

If you are thinking of moving here and buying a new home, now is a great time. I would even say it’s worth making a special trip just to buy. But come prepared, let me preview , summarize and analyze your options for you.

There are also some very good opportunities on resales that did not sell this season. I have a wonderful lake side home in The Legends, and  an Agostino Model in Pelican Preserve.

Let me know if I can help you.
