I would suggest the following:
1. Begin reviewing properties and communities prior to your visit.
(After you send me your search criteria I will set up a private web page for you to review properties that match your search parameters the moment they come on the market.)

2.Start targeting in on areas and communities that have the amenities you want within your budget parameters.

3. If you are close (within 6 months) of purchasing. You should be prequalified by a lender. PreQual letter from mortgage co will need to attach to any offer you make so we should get that ready. There's nothing worse than finding the right property, in the right location, with the right amenities, at the right price and missing out simply because you werent prpared to make an offer that will be accepted.

So let me go to work for you!
Please respond with the following info and I will begin searching for your new Southwest Florida home:

Size, # Bedrooms, general location (Ft Myers, Beach, Cape Coral, Naples)...waterfront?, pets?, budget, will you occupy? Will you rent it out?, Golf?, Gated?,
there are so many different settings here I'm sure you will find something that fits your dreams.

Good for you - we still have good inventory for you to look at, in lots of different property type catagories. Your timing might be perfect since most of the snowbirds have left and sellers are just a little bit more motivated in the Summer.

Call me anytime, I would be happy to assist you.
