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

Homes are selling fast in Cape Coral

Did you know that in recent months the average home in Cape Coral sits on the market for 30 days or less and many with multiple offers?  Sure makes it hard when you are searching for a home from another state or country.  It is nice to sit in the privacy of your own home and spend hours examining each detail and performing your own due diligence on the homes you have added to your favorites, but the reality is that most of these homes will be sold by the time you have narrowed your list.   It is true that searching for a home has become much easier by way of the many search sites, but taking too much time will result in missing out. Certainly know what is available, do your research, and find what specific criterion meets your needs, but if your scouting trip isn’t planned for months rest assured the inventory will have turned over more than once. 


We are now approaching our high selling season, inventory is down from past years and prices are trending upward.  So if you are on the fence about buying, hop a flight and get in on the action.  If we can help you with your buying or selling needs, please don’t hesitate to call.

Yours in Success,

The Florida Future Realty Team
