The 10 Minute Home Walkthrough

 

I became intimately familiar with ‘walkthroughs’ shortly after entering the Florida real estate business in 2013.  With so many excellent homes in various states of repair at the time, a periodic checkup was extremely necessary! It has been a little while since I have done one so this column is as much of a refresher for me as it is informational for you, Kind Reader.  I am preaching to the choir a bit in this post since I have gone back and forth to Sunshine State several time lately restaging all of our luxury South Florida homes as we recover from Hurricane Irma. This process will obviously entail a thorough inspection of each home! So whether you are costructing an initial home walkthrough checklist or your final

As we all unfortunately know, we were recently in the height of Hurricane season in the Western Hemisphere.  Puerto Rico is still reeling after Maria’s recent landfall. Texas & Louisiana are attempting to return to normalcy after Harvey. Irma left a trail of destruction in her wake on her way to (and through) the Caribbean and South Florida. Lives were lost and an estimated 6 million people were left without power before she died down to a tropical storm above Orlando, (as reported by USnews.com). Shelters took in an estimated 200,000 evacuees with the rest either taking to the roadways for hotels in Northern Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee or staying with family & friends. Many locals opted to instead hunt down plywood, tarps, & fastener

Fort Myers Beach is a happening spot to be sure, but at 18275 Cutlass Drive you get the best of both worlds. Take a tour of this gorgeous waterfront mansion located on a sleepy Fort Myers Beach canal just seconds away from Estero Boulevard- where not only the beach but an array of resorts, restaurants, bars, and shops await you.

Bask in the luxury of waterfront living. You're a few blocks away from one of the busiest beaches in Southwest Florida, yet you wouldn't know it from the quiet comfort to be found on Cutlass Drive. A fully modernized kitchen contrasts with the immaculate marble and stone architechture; a gorgeous pool and dock await outside. You might consider it 'Renaissance Reborn.'

How can I create an effective real estate brochure?

Recently the Dreamscape Realty team has been working through getting that first run of brochures brainstormed, engineered, populated, and printed. Effective marketing tools are important anywhere but especially in the South Florida real estate market. There are so many great choices out there and it seems crucial to establish an effective market presence and brand identity so that your listings stand out! This process is one I have been trying to become more educated on. It’s definitely something that requires a team effort with each individual fulfilling a role specific to his or her strengths.  Last week we finished our first run of print brochures advertising our listings and I am excited to

Cape Coral/Fort Myers #2 on “Ten Places Everyone’s Moving to in 2017”
By Ethan Maas (Project Manager, Dreamscape Realty)

      A story caught my eye this morning during my coffee/social media session.  Trulia.com (a well-known destination to those familiar with the real estate business) released their “Top Ten Cities Everyone’s Moving to In 2017”.  Guess what was number 2 on that list?  That’s right, the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area.  I was initially shocked by this because although there is plenty to do on the SW Florida coast I had assumed most of the growth was in one of the larger ‘population centers’ close by (ie. Tampa Bay or Miami). As I pondered my personal experiences with the area and did a bit more research, it did become clear why the Lee

house with canal and dock in Fort MyersAbout Fort Myers Real Estate        

Fort Myers real estate has been booming as of late.  It is a great place to live and work and the wide variety of homes available will fit anyone's budget or property type.  According to Realtor.com, most of the homes for sale in Fort Myers, FL are within reach of any discerning home buyer:  the median listing price for Fort Myers property is $250,000 at an average price of $141 per square foot. Homes in this area spend around 60 days on the market with a median closing price around $210,000 - which you'll notice is far less than the median listing price!
