Lehigh Acres, FL Real Estate News

The long-predicted wave of buyers back into the marketplace has finally begun in Southwest Florida, but not because home prices have magically rebounded. The reason for the excitement and flurry of activity is that banks have finally capitulated. In their haste to unload their ever-increasing inventory of foreclosure properties, large lenders have put hundreds of new or nearly-new houses on the local market at as little as 30-40% of the price they commanded when first built only a few years ago. Just this Friday a customer of mine closed on an 1800-square-foot 3/2/2 in a great neighborhood for the contract price of $95,500. The next day I was tagging along with a Realtor who was showing a two-year-old, 1400-square-foot 3/2/2 home in excellent condition with a list price of $89,600. In 2...

While no market analysis can be perfect, this comparison of renting vs. buying should offer a rough idea of the costs, pros, and cons of each. It is specific to here (Lehigh Acres, Florida) and now (January 2008). To rent or to buy? Regardless of your particular time or place, there are several constants that apply to this decision.

Maybe not much more—and if one factors in tax deductions the difference may vanish entirely—but in terms of writing out a check on the first of the month, the number you fill in is generally going to be smaller if you are making it out to a landlord rather than to a bank. It is also easier to qualify for a lease than a mortgage. Whatever your credi...

(Lehigh Acres isn’t the only area where true 100% financing is still offered, of course. It is, however, the area where I focus my personal services, and therefore makes a useful keyword to include in the title of this article…) Yes, 100% financing is still alive and well in many areas, under the correct circumstances. Mainly those are: You must be buying your primary residence You must be able to document your income and afford the housing payment You must have reasonable credit Beyond that, there will be additional requirements depending on the program used. VA loans, for example, require the borrower to be an eligible military veteran or surviving spouse. One regional bank I work with has a portfolio 97/3 product with specific credit requirements and household income caps. And finall...

   My wife was preparing herself this morning to meet our friend and neighbor, Bonnie.  Bonnie is a psychologist and a naturalist.  When she's not doing therapy, she's doing hiking an kayaking. Bonnie has a naturalist, snowbird boyfriend, Frasier. He will be back for Chrismas My wife when she is at her law office, is busy painting portraits of the famous and not so famous or on the bed giving the dog more kisses then she gives to me.  Anyway, the women were heading over to Lehigh Acres to take an old friend out to Lunch.  Alex and Steven and their young son had rented an apartment on ... Fort Myers Beach,...  for a couple of years a couple of years ago.  Then, Steve wanted the security of their own home. Unfortunately, the houses on the beach were just too expensive, and so I found them...
