February housing market update

Lee County February Housing Market Update

The February housing market update for Lee County showed there was more than $925 Million in properties closed during the month, up from $860 Million during the prior year. Both single family home and condo sales year-over-year decreased double digits in Bonita Springs, Estero and Fort Myers.

The percentage of cash transactions during the month increased  from 47 percent to 51 percent compared to the previous month. For our company, Downing Frye Realty, approximately 80% of our transactions over the past month have been cash deals. If you find yourself in a multiple bid situation, in most cases the seller will consider a cash offer a stronger offer than one with financing.

On another note, even though inventory remains historically low, there was positive news for new listings in February. The number of new properties hitting the market increased slightly for both condos and single family homes year-over-year. In all, there were 2,402 new properties were listed during the month.
