Probably, as long as there isn't another stock market crash. Call me for Homeowners Insurance
quotes. I live right down the street from Madison Park.

Well that depends....

There is no denying the real estate frenzy. An influx of investors led by Blackstone, among the nation's largest private real estate owners, have flooded into Southwest Florida to buy up distressed properties for use as rentals.

In many cases, the cash-powered institutions have bullied traditional home buyers and smaller investors out of foreclosure-buying opportunities by routinely paying well above the bank's asking price — sometimes even when no other parties are bidding,.....

In the latest article from UCF Institute for Economic Competitiveness, "Looking for Bubbling in the Real Estate boomlette", they say: (see link below for full article)

So far, these groups have paid, on average, 45 percent more for the homes in Manatee and Sarasota counties than the properties' value, RealtyTrac's analysis shows. [Naples has not seen this -- yet]

Sustained demand for real estate from traditional buyers also has whittled down housing inventory to just five months' worth at the current sales pace, leaving slim pickings for buyers to choose from, records show.

Brokers say the result is something of a frenzy among buyers for certain classes of properties, because they fear they also must overpay to land the home they have been waiting for — which, in turn, drives up prices further.

The institutional investment purchases also set asking prices for future bank-owned properties and for comparables used in appraisals...."It's a dangerous market for your amateur real estate buyer or investor," he said. "They can get hurt when they look at all of these numbers that are artificial."


After the dot.com bust, real estate was seen as a safe investment, the frenzy began and here we are today. I wish I had a crystal ball.

Currently Madison Park has 8 active listing -- 2 pending -- 5pending contingencies -- let me know if this helped or not :-)

Madison Park is a newer home owners community which has relatively high homeowner fees in relationship to the amenities offered. The community is not gated and there is no community club house for the single family homes which do not have swimming pools. It is much easier to sell a house in Florida which has some kind of access to a swimming pool.

If you are looking at purchasing one of the new coach homes in the community, the last time I checked the last 8 properties being built by Lennar do not, at this time have an agreement to be able to use the swimming pool for the existing homeowner's community for the coach home called Quincy Square. At this time those last 8 properties will have to try to negotiate with the other coach homeowner's at Quincy Square to get pool privileges.

Also, there is a road expansion property happening in on the South side of the community which is going to create a good deal more of road noise for those owners who currently back up to the road.
The existing road noise for the back of those home owners is already not very pleasant. There is a wall being constructed between the road expansion area and the community, however, walls only help to buffer some of the noise. Location within the community is very important. If the pricing seems very low, look out!

There are other areas which will give a buyers a better opportunity to invest in a newer homes to obtain good appreciative value in the future.

"The most important thing a buyer can do is work with a buyer broker." As stated by AARP and the Consumer Federation of America in REALTOR News.

Well I can't offer a reading as to value two years from now, however it's a desirable community. The question is do you feel real estate is rebounding in SW FL ? Does the rebound have legs ? I think so.

Yes you can! This is what people do here. You can purchase almost every real estate in SW FL because the prices will rise shortly. The property inventory is low and that's why builders have already started to build new Developments here in Naples for example. I live in Naples and see every day how quick the builders are.
Please give me a call.
