So, if you are ready to begin your own property search, I encourage you to explore this website to find information about communities in Southwest Florida. If you are a golfer, I specialize in golf community real estate and would be happy to help you navigate over 100 different golf communities to get you started. Or, if you would rather, I will provide a list of properties that meet your criteria.
Interested Golf Communities?
If you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it is more complex than a normal home purchase. As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf courses. Also, there are hidden fees, different membership fees, pet restrictions and very different demographics in each community.
Or, if you are considering new construction, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours. There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you. In fact, I can help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.
So, if you are looking for information about a specific community in Bonita Springs, Estero or Naples, contact me and I will prepare a custom market report for you. Most importantly, I can provide the market information and insights to help make sure you select your dream home.
Lastly, I will handle all of the contract negotiations for your property from the first offer to close.
