OK, who knew the video updates would be so popular? This week’s video updates are in, and instead of doing our traditional in office video update, we decided to post some of the news stories we did last week on the local news. This idea started out last year as a fun experiment, and what we’ve discovered is people like it and expect it. This past week we received several e-mails and comments asking where the video updates are.
On January 6, 2009 we did an interview on WINK News 6 PM regarding Hank Fishkind’s recently released report and how he expects the SW Florida real estate market to go in the next 3 years. We talked about affordability being back in the Fort Myers real estate market and how northern buyers are here this season and buying due to the low prices.
We also did an interview for WINK News at 5 PM and we talked again about Hank Fishkind’s stagnant growth prediction, northern buyers, and making money in real estate on the Buy Vs. the sell. We disagreed with Hank Fishkind’s report to some extent on the SW Florida condo market.
You can let us know whether you like the TV News format better, or the simple video update like we did on September 15 in our office. Just leave your comments to this post.
We also did news stories on NBC Today Show last September and also NBC NIghtly News with Brian Williams on October 8, 2008.

Who knew people actually wanted to tune in and watch a short video each week on what’s happening in the SW Florida real estate market? The Fort Myers and Cape Coral market is changing rapidly, so I guess everyone is just trying to get a handle on what’s really happening and the trends we’re seeing on the streets.
Watch out 9-15-08 Fort Myers Florida Real Estate Update here presented by The Ellis Team at RE/MAX Realty Group in Fort Myers Florida. This started out as a test a few weeks ago and people actually called and complained we didn’t post one last week. Last week we were really busy writing new contracts, listing new properties, and keeping existing deals together. FInancing has become increasingingly difficult to obtain, and lenders are updating their files just before closing and asking more questions, which is causing delays. Add to that a shaky capital market, and you’ve got chaos in a moments notice, so sometimes we’re busy fighting fires. Keep in mind helping consumers buy and sell real estate is our primary business, and even though we enjoy educating consumers and the media as to what’s really happening in real time, sometimes we have to fight the fires first so to speak.
Hope you enjoy this week’s video. It is low budget (Free) so hopefully you’ll get something out of the content and not the production quality.
