Real Estate Strategies June/July 2022
Book Virtual Buyer Consultation!

The snowbird, seasonal residents have flown north in mass for the first time in a couple of years.  The easing up of covid restrictions has made an impact.

We have felt a shift in the SWFL and Bonita Springs real estate market. Here are a few items of note:

  • Some of the second home buyer pool has flown north.
  • We are having our "graduation lull" in the market for the first time in 2 years.
  • Interest rates have gone up a little. 
  • Inventory has not piled up but it's given the market some slack to slow it down.  
  • Builders handed out Realtor incentives for us to bring in buyers!
  • Not all sellers get multiple offers and there are now price reductions!
  • We have seen homes that pend sale bounce back on market - cold feet! Back up offers!
  • Record low rental inventory so winter snowbirds will buy if they can't find a rental.
The Bonita Springs real estate market is giving you a pause to plan your next move.  It may be renting, it may be buying, it may be staying put where you're at. The one surefire way to find a home to move into or secure a seasonal, second home is to be prepared for when an opportunity reveals itself.  Here are five points we will cover when you book a buyer strategy session with us.
  • Restructure your property search to deliver what you need & optional alternatives.
  • If you're financing, get you underwritten with a fast-pass mortgage.
  • Show you which communities to avoid if they aren't in your annual HOA budget
  • Bring you to speed on insurance for homes with potential issues.
  • Demonstrate how both escalation clauses & back up offers may work for you.
