By Jay Richter Licensed Real Estate Instructor at John R. Wood Island Real Estate located on Sanibel Island, FL.
Personally, I think our “Explore Sanibel Island” video is turning people on to what we are fortunate to have here… The best of Florida! Over 247,000 thousand visitors have viewed our video, ranking it the number one Sanibel video on YouTube. Go to www.exploresanibelisland.com, click and watch. Then tell me if you agree with me – You should own some of this!
First Quarter sales statistics show Sanibel is out ahead with outstanding sales performances. Property sales data show that Sanibel is up 11% (eleven percent) for the first quarter. A surge of Gulf Front property sales has lifted the volume up 21% over the same period last year.
Clients coming to the island this year were more interested in properties that were not necessarily near beach or with gulf access, but just classified as “inland” homes. Canal front homes were also more popular than the same period last year.
Sanibel listings offer more choices this year which favors buyers in negotiating. Our office is looking forward to a solid second quarter and has had a record setting March for written deals. This is the time that you should consider owning the best of Florida.
