Some of the properties listed on Trulia are from public record and not listed for sale or rent. The property you've inquired about is not listed. This is why there is no listing agent. The price you see is the price that the property was last sold for and public record has given this information to Trulia. ... more

The list to sell percentage is not a good indicator in our market. Many owners price well above market. Over priced homes and short sales tend to sell below market. Banks often price foreclosures below market and take bids selling over ask price. In all of Collier County the percentage has been 6 to 8 % below list but again I would not rely on those numbers for a particular property. I would rely on a professional agent who can provide sold and active comps to show the true current market value for a property of interest.

The talk is relative to the market your in. I have never been as busy as I am now. For me the market is booming. Everywhere on Marco you can get waterfront property with either direct or indirect access. The better the location and access the shorter the time on the market. If it is a good value then it will close within months if it is still a little overpriced it could be there for a year or more. I work with investors and value buyers who rely on me to do my homework and find them the best priced home and in the best area . Contact me at I will at least get you going in the right direction . Happy house hunting.

Hi Dan
The Marco market has been close to the bottom for some time. Marco was the first area in SW Florida to take off and be in demand. It was also the first to crash. Now it is poised to get busy again. Right now there are investors everywhere buying up property that is value based. There are buyers throwing out ridiculous numbers for properties and they are not getting their offers accepted. If you are looking for great properties and want a local professional who knows the market to get you the best property ,for the best price contact me at I have developed relationships with a lot of Marco Realtors. I get calls on properties every day that are at bargain prices because I work with investors and buyers . I hope I can assist you in your search.

Hi Barbara
The real estate market is in season right now. We had the snow birds over the winter but they were not the ones buying, the the investors are. I have had 5 houses go under contract in the last month. I have more business then I can handle I have hired two other agents to help me and am looking at a third. Properties are selling with the right realtors although Marco Island is a different market it isn't because there are no buyers. Most of the Island realtors will get a listing and only show their listings. They may put it on Naples MLS but I have noticed that a lot have only put it on Marcos Mls. I am a little different in the way I think. I am not interested in putting one hook in the water to try and catch one fish. I want to throuw a net in and catch a lot of fish and be able to pick and choose which ones I keep. If you would like some ideas as to how to market your property email me at ... more
