NBC-2 did a report Monday night about how out of state buyers are snatching up bargains in SW Florida. Buyers have been coming in from all over looking for bargains, some of them foreclosures, in the Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Lehigh Acres area.
The Ellis Team lists a lot of bank owned foreclosures and we are seeing buyers snatch up these properties in hours. Many of these properties receive multiple offers in just a few days, so it’s important for buyers to know the rules the lender is requiring and to follow them.
Buyers quite often ignore the rules and are disappointed when their offer is not accepted. Working with an agent who knows the requirements of the offer will increase your chances of acquiring the property, although it cannot guarantee it when multiple offers are invloved.
We will be adding shortly a way to search for foreclosures on our website. To search the entire SW Florida real estate MLS, including Fort Myers, Lehigh Acres, and Cape Coral, visit www.Leecountyonline.com
