 LOT INVESTING RE-EMERGES IN CAPE CORAL
 
2013 finds waterfront lots rising in value: After six years of steadily declining prices, waterfront lots started increasing in value in early 2012 . . . and at a very healthy pace. Depending on the location, gulf-access lot prices have gone up between 15 -30 % in the past year. We see the trend continuing and have invested in several waterfront lots ourselves.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
Reasons For Rising Lot Prices
 
* Substantial decrease in home inventory, leading to increase in new home construction
 
* Savvy remodeling investors have shifted their focus to new construction for higher profits, thus they are buying  numerous parcels of land for future need
 
* Lenders have greatly loosened requirements for new home financing, making it easier for builders to build spec homes (which are selling quickly). Lenders now require less up front capital and a much more reasonable FICO score for homeowners to finance a home of their dreams
 
* The gap between existing home prices and new construction has dropped from 50 - 60% to about 15 - 20%. When the gap is at this level many people are willing to pay the differential to get a new home that is exactly the home they want, and in the precise location they want
 
* With more retiring Baby Boomers wanting to move to the area, or at least own a second home here in Paradise, the decreased inventory and increased prices make building a new home quite attractive
 
Best Method to Buy Low for Maximum Profit
 
The "Neighborhood Aerial Map Program" shown below is the absolute gold standard for finding the best valued lots for investment or for home building.
 
This is a software system that only 4% of local realtors are willing to invest in. However, we have not sold a home or lot for a client or ourselves  without first checking the Neighborhood Aerial Map. Any other comparison method is relatively inferior.
 
The Neighborhood Aerial Map provides a simplified means of comparing all the lots in a particular unit, and determining which is the best value based on size and location of the lot, width of the canal, and rear exposure (ask us about this important criteria).
 
Combined with googlearth map, this Neighborhood Map system provides a level of confidence that has enabled buyers to purchase lots from us sight unseen, something most anyone would be uncomfortable doing with a home.
 
Neighborhood Aerial Maps
 
Below are a random sampling of two neighborhood aerial maps. The unit is shown, along with what would be our top selection for value. The lots in purple are the best value, but by the time you read this that lot is likely sold, and we would conduct an up to the minute aerial map in whatever unit(s) in the Cape you are interested in.
