Bonita Springs Foreclosures & Short Sales 

We had just under 12% foreclosures in Bonita Springs and Estero.  The short sales were at about 8%.  That means that we’ve absorbed a great deal of our distressed properties. We’ve even had fewer short sales and foreclosures in the recent past.  The future will bring a steady drip of the occasional foreclosure or short sale but not a massive deluge as we saw in 2006 and 2007.

With the Bonita Springs foreclosure market dwindling we see multiple offers and lenders accepting cash offers in many circumstances.  The properties often sell within a few days of being listed.
