Lee County Florida School Choice

Lee County School Choice

Lee County Florida School Choice Options

Are you considering a move into Lee County Florida with your family? Many families make the move to Lee County each and every week. The sun and beaches are great but what about our schools?

One of the great things about Lee County schools is your ability to pick what school your child(ren) go to. Lee County School District offers parents what is known as school choice. School Choice in Lee County is great for parents to have control over their child’s education. With school choice you can choose schools within your zone(s) to send your kids. It seems sort of funny if you are used to school districts being separate and thinking about students going to school close to home; but, with school choice you could actually drive past several different schools on your way to your school.

From the website:

(for the most up to date school choice info and to get help making your choices you can call Lee County School choice at 239-242-2059 in Cape Coral or at 239-337-8347 for Fort Myers or Lehigh Acres). Florida Future Realty can help you with purchasing or selling a home. Thanks)

Zones and School Selection- The District has created three sub-zones within each zone.

  • Families living in sub-zone 1 will select schools physically located within sub zone 1 and sub zone 2, and Zone Magnet schools if any
  • Families living within sub-zone 2 will be able to select among all schools within the entire zone.
  • Families living in sub-zone 3 will select among schools physically located in sub-zone 3 and sub-zone 2, and Zone Magnet schools if any.
  • Parents and students are expected to list all the schools in their sub-zone, in rank order. Every attempt will be made to assign students to the highest preference school possible.

Access the school zones map below:

Another great thing about our Lee County schools are the grading scales. Schools are graded each year on performance so you can see how they compare to one another.

Lee County Florida School Performance Grades

We also offer many excellent charter schools (semi-public) and private schools as well. There is also a fairly large home schooling population as well.

Summer is a great time to pick out your new house before the school year begins. If we can assist you with your Lee County housing needs, please let us know. We look forward to working with you.

Investing In Facebook Stock or Real Estate

Investing In Facebook Stock or Real Estate

Think you should invest in FaceBook? Not So Fast!

I am sure you have all heard, FaceBook had its IPO this week bringing one of the most cutting edge companies into the public stock market. $100,000,000,000 was the estimated value of the website which makes it worth more than Disney. Really??? Worth more than Disney? Sounds a bit ridiculous if you ask me, a single website that people will surely get bored of within the next 5 to 10 years and that 100 billion will be 12 million just like the ancient MySpace. I really have no idea if Facebook is a good investment or not but I figured if everyone is going to throw around those 100 billion dollar numbers then we should be actually talking about something of REAL value.

So what should you invest your money in then? I am not an investment advisor or tax accountant so the following is just my educated opinion with some fancy stats and charts to look at. Let’s first look at this chart and see what it tells me:

I see a rise and fall every 10 years or so. Look at 1978, the prices shot up then again in 1988, and 1998 the prices rose steadily for about 6 years and they finally dropped back down to the original starting point in 1998. We have hit below the trend line and are starting the way back up slowly. The spike will probably not come for another couple years but the time to buy is now while we are still on that little blue trend line.

How about this chart showing all the way back to the 1800’s. Take notice what happens every time the spike drops…… It goes back up.

Now I’m no rocket surgeon but I am pretty sure these charts are telling us it is time to BUY REAL ESTATE.


And finally here is proof that we are recovering from the latest economic downturn. Since last year we have had double digit increases in at least 10 different markets.

City /ST– Year over Year Increase

1. Miami, FL 32.75%
2. Fort Myers-Cape Coral, FL 21.00%
3. Punta Gorda, FL 19.33%
4. West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL 18.60%
5. Boise City, ID 18.15%
6. Sarasota-Bradenton, FL 17.18%
7. Phoenix-Mesa, AZ 16.90%
8. Daytona Beach, FL 15.91%
9. Naples, FL 15.87%
10. Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV(DC) 15.48%

Lee County School Choice

Gen Y relocating to Southwest Florida

Gen Y residents are flocking to the Southwest Florida area. New jobs, education, home prices, affordability levels, and of course the sunny weather are some of the reasons we are hearing about. The biggest contributing factor is the local colleges surrounding the area. Graduation rates are increasing and so are the Gen Y incomes. Just here is Lee County alone we have Edison State College, Hodges University, FGSU, Southwest Florida College

Prices corrections have played a huge factor in the new wave of Gen Y buyers moving into the communities. Certain Gated communities such as Sandoval and Cape Royal are seeing a spike in occupancy rates. These communities offer medium priced homes with family amenities which make them much more attractive than your basic community pool and tennis court.

The home ownership opportunities have become within reason for the Gen Y population to justify purchasing a home with value and quality starting to increase. In the early 2000s the prices shot up high and fast which caused uncertainty in the market making it difficult to justify buying homes.

The Gen Y group is attracted to the area for a number of reasons other than housing and schools; the downtown Fort Myers River district has a fantastic night life with multiple restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, and coffee shops. The luxury style updates made to the entire district in the past few years has increased the level of interest for all ages. Beautiful Cobble Stone style roads to keep the old time feeling, palm trees lining the roads, and older brick buildings keep the old world feeling with new world amenities.
Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel are always a relaxing choice for the Gen Y population. Beaches in SW Florida are rated some of the best in the country every year.

A few other Neighborhoods that the Gen Y groups tend to be attracted to are Cape Harbour, Gateway of Fort Myers, Colonnade at the Forums, and The Timbers. If you are interested in more information on any of these communities and what they have to offer then contact us at 239-542-8521 or email

Foreclosure Purchasing Guide for Cape Coral Florida

What is a REO or Foreclosure Property?
A foreclosure is a property that has been repossessed by the bank, lending institution, or investor also known as a REO (Real Estate Owned). Foreclosure by definition is “A legal process in which a lender attempts to recover the balance of a loan from a borrower who has stopped making payment to the lender by forcing the sale of the asset used as the collateral for the loan”. Florida Future Realty in Cape Coral provides home buyers with a REO specialist that is highly trained in the process of negotiating with the lenders to get the best price.

How Do I Get Started?
The first steps in buying a home in Cape Coral are critical to successfully purchasing your next home. Below are a few tips to get started.

Before even considering looking at a home in person you need to contact a qualified lender for a consultation. This will save you time and money!


  • A Pre-Qualification letter will let you know the estimated amount of home you can obtain financing for.
  •  A Pre-Approval letter will allow you to pin point a dollar amount you are qualified for. Also when you submit an offer the seller will see you are a more serious candidate and is less likely to cause financing delays.


  • Finding an agent that is qualified to assist you in your pursuit for a REO property is simple. Pick up the phone and interview potential agents in the Cape Coral area with the following questions.
  1. Are you familiar with distressed property sales and transactions?
  2. Have you successfully closed many REO or short sale transactions?
  3. Do you have any formal training for distressed property sales?
  4. Are you a licensed REALTOR®?

A great place to start is by calling 239-542-8521 or stopping by Florida Future Realty at 2816 Del Prado Blvd s#1 Cape Coral Fl, 33904.



Your real estate agent should be able to assist you in this part of the process. Be as honest and forthcoming as possible so they can narrow down the search for you.

  • Ask the agent to email you properties coming onto the market daily.
  • Search online via the agents website for potential deals
  • Keep an eye out for yard signs and write down the address for your agent

After viewing all of the potential homes in Cape Coral, you and your agent need to sit down and discuss what you are thinking in terms of price. Your agent should give you comparable properties sold in the past few months to help you gauge what the property is worth and how much you should offer. Be sure and list all the items you see wrong with the property and consider them when deciding on a price. No one can tell you what to offer other than yourself.

Important to have these items ready when you sit down to make the offer:

  • Your pre-qualification letter or proof of funds
  • Check book for an escrow deposit
  • A list of any stipulations you want in the contract.
  • Be prepared to negotiate there may be multiple offers on a home listed below market value.
  • Be patient

Florida Future Realty Inc will be happy to assist you with your real estate needs. We have agents certified in multiple areas of the market ready to help. Call us at 239-542-8521 or email

Is Your Agent Still Using A Yard Sign and Newspaper to Sell Your Home?

SoldTake good pictures for your listings

In today’s competitive market inventory is high and good buyers are few and far between. As a seller you must be able to reach as many potential Cape Coral buyers in the shortest amount of time to be able to compete with all these foreclosures and short sales. Yard signs and newspapers just do not do it anymore. With a yard sign you may get that lucky buyer driving by. You may also have an ad in the Sunday newspaper where a reader happens to see your tiny ad in a 200 page newspaper with no pictures and hope for the best.

The simple advertising strategies in Cape Coral and surrounding areas no longer work but there is an easy solution, “the internet”. The internet provides us with some of the most valuable tools available to ANYONE in the real estate industry. Exposure of your home for sale instantly to 6 billion plus people. We have the knowledge and experience to properly market your Cape Coral real estate listing across the internet for maximum exposure.

It all starts with the PICTURES of your home. You can have the most beautiful home with gorgeous views, swimming pool, granite counter tops, customs closets, and marble floors but without GREAT pictures you are just another house for sale. The pictures of your home should be focused on the main selling points such as kitchen, master bath, master bedroom, and spacious living room. They must be well lit and taken with a high megapixel camera. Be picky with your photos and do not be afraid to ask your agent to change out the ones you do not like. This is your first impression to the world, make it a good one. We live in Florida with sunshine 350 days a year so there are no excuses for dark boring pictures.

Next you will have your home entered into the Fort Myers or Cape Coral MLS (Multiple Listing Service) with a well thought out description featuring just enough to intrigue a potential buyer into seeing the property or calling to ask for more information. Too much information gives the buyer no reason to call. The MLS will provide your listing exposure to all of the other real estate agents and their buyers in the area. Next is one of the most important tools that we have available, a great “syndication” program. The syndication will send out your home listing to 100’s of nationally recognized websites with millions of viewers each day. (See why the pictures are so important?). Maybe you have heard of a few, Realtor, Zillow, Trulia, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Bing, Homegain, Craigslist, Homes, New York Times, and hundreds more. The goal is to be on EVERY SINGLE website that buyers would search for Cape Coral homes.

Now that you are on every website we can think of, you need to have great call to actions in your listing to entice the buyers to click for more information. “If you build it they will come” does not apply to real estate listings in Southwest Florida any longer. Virtual tours, E-flyers, printable flyers, share buttons and sign up forms, are a few helpful tools that lead buyers into making the next move, CONTACTING the agent! These interactive tools are critical to the success of the marketing campaign for your Cape Coral house.

Here at Florida Future Realty Inc, we have developed a wide variety of online tools made available to all of our agents which helps accomplish this massive worldwide exposure campaign. Our highly trained web developers and agents will custom build you a single page website like THIS ONE with a maximum rate of buyer lead capture. A wonderful virtual tour that will create even more interest than your pictures and has proven to increase visitors by 20%. The first week your home is listed you will want to let everyone you know that it is for sale, send them a custom made JUST LISTED eflyer via email, share it on your Facebook wall and have us share it on Facebook and Twitter with our 1000’s of followers. Have a smartphone with a QR reader? Then scan the barcode below and see what happens.


This will bring up and save your home listing on anyone’s IPHONE or ANDROID phone. These QR codes will be placed on almost every piece of advertising across the internet we do.

Cape Coral real estate SOLD


Have a SOLD sign in your sw Fl homes front yard

Did your listing agreement for your Cape Coral or Ft. Myers property expire last week? Do you still need help to sell your property?


I ask because today I received several phone calls & emails from Fort Myers & Cape Coral homeowners asking for help. For one reason or another some homes are not selling while others are selling quickly and at a fair price. There is a good reason your home did not sell and I am sure you want to know why!


Yesterday I had a gentleman call me and ask if I could sell his home for him. He has had it listed for 6 months and only 2 showings. After about 30 minutes we hung up and agreed to meet tomorrow for coffee and discuss his options. Naturally I started researching the property and found why it had not sold almost instantly. The problem was not price


This is a lovely home in a gated community on a golf course. The agent only had 4 photos of the Golf Course property. They used the photos from our property appraiser’s website. This consists of one front photo (with a truck in the driveway & garage door opened) and an aerial photo showing the roof. Two photos of the living room with the television on and him sitting in the chair drinking a glass of Iced Tea. Are you kidding me? And the agent probably said they don’t know why it didn’t sell. Well I do! To top that off there were about 2 lines of description in the MLS. Basically, “Look, here is a Golf Course house for sale, you wanna buy it?”.  I’m guessing that this property can NOT be found on any real estate search websites either( I checked and it is not). It is truly sad. The seller should have known about this. The listing agent should have known better.


Why didn’t they try everything to sell your property? Did they think they’d get the buyer themselves & didn’t want to ‘share’ their commission? Did they just not know any better? OR Were they just lazy?


The good news for this seller is that he found us. We specialize in getting properties sold. I don’t take listings just to increase my inventory. I take listings to SELL them.  We help traditional sellers compete with the bank owned and short sale listings. Your house must STAND OUT.


We also handle bank owned and short sale listings in Cape Coral and Ft. Myers. Sometimes short sales take a little longer to sell but we still market them just as well as any other listing! We use multiple photos, a great description, video, national advertising, virtual tours, and many other online marketing tools we have developed! How could you not? And how could you not expect your agent to at least take multiple photos? Some real estate websites even allow up to 20-30 photos per listing. Think of the possibilities. Most MLSs allow for at least 20 photos. We make use of those available spots.


BUYERS WANT TO SEE PHOTOS – AND LOTS OF THEM. Buyers often even ask me to exclude any listings that do not have multiple photos. There are just too many ‘unknowns’ for them to deal with. Over 90% of buyers begin their search for a new home online. This means that YOUR LISTING must look appealing to them. The internet may not ‘sell’ your house but it will get it on their ‘list’ of prospective properties to view.  Video tours are also important. This will weed out the tire kickers and get INTERESTED buyers through the door.


Finally, if you have not checked to see how your listing appears in the local MLS or on national & international websites PLEASE go check. If your agent is not doing their best to show your house in the best light then let them know. Give them the opportunity to FIX it or hire a new real estate agent.


And most importantly, if you have property that you need to sell in Cape Coral or Ft. Myers, Florida please give me a call. We will give you the REAL market value of your home & market your property to its full potential.


Your time is valuable and selling your house is important to you. It shouldn’t be something you have to stress about after you hire a real estate professional! That’s OUR responsibility!


What do they say about employers? They should HIRE SLOW & FIRE FAST….so should YOU. Do your research! Ask Questions! Call us! 239-542-8521
