What Does $ 750,000 Buy in Lee County Real Estate Market?
At Fort Myers Beach we found a nice waterfront home on a wide canal built in 1981. It is 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. It has a gorgeous pavered pool area and boat lift for your boat at the canal. It’s located mid island at Fort Myers Beach and is listed for $725,000.
In Fort Myers we found another gulf access waterfront home. This home has 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths with 2,549 sq ft living area. I like the stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, wood like floors, and of course its location. Keep in mind, none of these listings are ours and we’re reporting based upon pictures in the MLS.
In Cape Coral we found a home just under $750,000 with almost 2,600 sq ft of living area. This too is a gulf access waterfront pool home with no bridges. It’s a 2 minute boat ride to the river. It has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, high tray ceilings and stainless steel appliances with granite counter tops in the kitchen. It has a boat lift and a wet bar with refrigerator area off the pool for entertaining when you get off the boat.
Lastly, we have a gorgeous home on the golf course for you in Bonita Springs priced below $750,000. It is located in Palmira Golf and Country Club and features 3 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths with granite counter tops and custom cabinets on a quiet cul-de-sac street. The community offers a resort style pool and a community center, fitness center and bar and grill.
The bottom line is SW Florida has so much to offer for all kinds of different lifestyles. Whether you’re a casual boater, avid fisherman, tennis player, golfer, workout buff, or just like to chill out on your lanai and watch nature, SW Florida has it all.
We have single family homes, condos, villas, town homes, and coach homes for easy living. This is one reason our agents spend time asking buyers questions. We don’t really sell anything, because SW Florida sells itself. Rather, we listen to what buyers like to do, what makes them happy, and how they will use their home. Once we determine that, we can identify suitable properties and make some recommendations based upon the buyer’s lifestyle. Each home and each community offers something different.
It can be a daunting task when you’re not from here. Buyers don’t want to make a mistake. This is why hiring a seasoned agent accustomed to working with buyers can make all the difference. I can’t tell you how many times buyers have thanked us for listening to them and suggesting certain properties based upon their needs.
We help with new construction as well. It doesn’t cost any more to use a Realtor, and many times it will save you money because we know the incentives being offered. Builders also like Realtors because we can be a source for repeat business. A good Realtor can point out the pros and cons based upon your needs, not the seller’s or the builder’s.
We have new construction available on our website at TopAgent.com and of course we have the entire MLS available at www.LeeCountyOnline.com Of course, there’s no substitute for talking with experienced agents who know the area. If our team can help, please call us at 239-489-4042
Good luck and Happy House Hunting!
