Southwest Florida Real Estate Market * Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Florida

Joe Kendall, Waterfront & Foreclosure Specialist

Southwest Florida Real Estate Market in Fort Myers and Cape Coral has been increasing in sales over the last three month as we are closing in on the end of summer. I see the inventory of  Foreclosures and Bank Short Sales lowering shrinking each week as we head toward September 2009.

As we come to end of Summer of 2009 after reflecting on the real estate so far this year, It is time for me to take a short break for a few short days from the day to day operations of listing and selling real estate here in southwest Florida. I have been planing a trip to Michigan where I will help my daughter move into her dorm room at  (Central Michigan University ) as she will start her second year of College when I return it will be the last week of sales in August, where did summer go? 

As we see the start of September, people will start making there plans for season here in southwest Florida. I am going to go on the record and say, this will be the last summer with the lowest prices on waterfront property as spring of 2010 will show prices on the rise of prime waterfront locations as the foreclosure property inventory will have been be greatly reduced from todays numbers.

Since I have started writing my real estate blog in June of 2007 the real estate market has changed ! I have seen prices drop like no where else in the country, As you may already know they call southwest Florida "Ground Zero" for the Mortgage crises in this country. In most of 2008 Lee county Florida has lead the country in "Foreclosure Filings" in just about every month of the year of 2008. This has been reported by many news media and real estate forecasters.

I have written over 400 postings including pictures and information about Cape Coral, Fort Myers  Sanibel Island lifestyle, things to do, and buying and selling specially in regards to Foreclosure's, Bank Short Sales and Waterfront Property . 

I know Southwest Florida! I make it my job to know and specialize in waterfront, foreclosures and bank short sales. I invite you to discover the "Southwest Florida Lifestyle " in Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Estero, Cape Coral , LeHigh Acres, Bonita Springs, Pine Island and Sanibel Island.

Let my experience as a Realtor and a Avid Boater show you the way to your very own "Piece of Paradise!" I know southwest Florida on and off water!

I will make your home buying and selling experience all about you !    


Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres foreclosures come in every shape, color and size!


 I remember in 1997 We bought our Gulf Access Waterfront Pool Home in Cape Coral Florida and when I looked back then, there where only 21 homes listed for sale within my price range and only 11 of them had a swimming pool.

The choices of locations, styles and amenities of the homes for sale today are just amazing in 2009 ! When I go out showing waterfront homes that are for sale today and compare the value to most areas around the country, It is not going to last "I strongly in-courage" if you are looking to buy don,t wait till everyone arrives when the snow fall arrives up north to buy as so will everyone else! Now is the time to Buy! as I am still amazed at what your money can buy you here in southwest Florida! Specially in Cape Coral Florida.

You can search all the Gulf Access Waterfront Homes  or Homes in Gated Communites by clicking on this highlighted link from my web site. Including all the homes listed in the foreclosure process as well as the bank owned property.

I look forward to working with you in the near future !

Following you on Twitter and saw your update so came over.  Sounds great.  We just listed a 168 unit REo apartment building in Ft. Meyers.  Hope it moves quickly!!

Hi Joe

I agree with you that we are seeing the last of the "drop dead" prices for water property.

Hope you have nice weather while moving your daughter.  Have a safe trip
