Hurricane Irma is long behind….Pine Island Real Estate is bouncing back.

Real estate on Pine Island has been a little off lately.  I’m not sure it’s the political climate or the after effects of hurricane Irma. The real estate that I thought would have sold quickly has been slow to move.  Buyers seem a little hesitant to pull the trigger.  It may just be a lull here on the island that other markets like Cape Coral just aren’t feeling.  In fact, real estate in Cape Coral has been on fire.  New construction is through the roof and growth for the area is projected to be tops in the country.

Though, as much as that’s great news for Cape Coral, I much prefer the island lifestyle here on Pine Island.   So for my $, I would still prefer Pine Island Real Estate over nearby areas like Cape Coral, Punta Gorda and Ft. Myers.

And lets face it, people come here to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.  Just this weekend, I had some clients out on the boat and we caught a number of different species from trout to jacks, from mackerel to blue runners.  The highlight of the day came when we put a live blue runner out behind the boat and voila….we hooked into a 8-10 foot hammerhead shark.  The shark won the battle but that’s an experience you can’t get everywhere.  Welcome to Pine Island!

Feel free to call me for real estate or fishing tips, or both!

The beauty of Pine Island is that you're just a short boat ride away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

9% Price Increase Predicted – Good news for Pine Island Real Estate

CoreLogic predicts a 9% year-over-year price increase for Florida.   This is great news for Pine Island Real Estate and SWFL as home listing prices continue to rise.  Of course, this is better news for sellers than buyers but there are still many deals to be had on Pine Island.  As many snowbirds begin to head north, now may be the time to make an offer on your vacation dream home or future retirement spot – the key is to make your move before you find yourself using the words “I should have….”

Florida is amongst only a few states across the country posting a +6% gain in pricing or more.  The greater majority of the country is expected to be below that.  So this is great news for sellers on Pine Island.  In terms of the East Coast, Florida outranks other states including Connecticut and New Hampshire who are expected to post gains slightly above the 6% mark.

As one would expect, pricing is based on demand and availability but there is one other factor that drives demand in Florida – weather.  Florida’s warmer temperatures drives hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.  When it comes to home buying, many of today’s customers are looking for a warmer place to retire, fishing, boating and other outdoor activities.  Pine Island offers all of that when it comes to real estate choices.

Background on Pine Island Real Estate:

Pine Island is located along the Southwest Coast of Florida along the Gulf of Mexico.  The island is 17 miles long and 2 miles wide.  While the island has no beaches, it has tremendous attraction to thousands of visitors who come here each year.  It’s hard to explain but it’s part Key West and part rural country town.  One thing for sure — it’s one of the few places along the Florida coastline that has managed to escape over-development.  Current building regulations have prevented high density, high-rise development on Pine Island.  So for now, Pine Island’s rural country charm remains.

As an avid fisherman.  I began visiting Pine Island in 2003.  In 2010, I decided to purchase a home in St. James City as vacation and rental home. My passion for tarpon fishing is what initially brought me to the island.  As a full-time realtor for NextHome Advisors,  I now get to share my passion for the island with visitors and prospective clients.  So, free to call me for local information, fishing tips and Pine Island real estate questions.  I can be reached at (239) 223-5758.
