Lee County New Building Permits Increase

Lee County New Building Permits Increase

New Building PermitsDuring January, contractors pulled 162 new building permits to build single-family houses. The estimated value of the permits pulled was about $35.3 million in unincorporated Lee County. That compares with 126 permits issued in December 2017 and 134 issued in January 2017, according to the Lee County Department of Community Development.

Also, during January, 26 multi-family units valued at about $3.8 million were permitted. That’s almost double the number pulled in December 2017 which was 16 and a significant increase over January 2016 when only six units were pulled.

Finally, there were 10 commercial units pulled valued at about $16.1 million during the month. And, compared to December of last year, this is a slight decline from about $19.5 million. However, it was almost double January of 2017 when approximately $9.6 million’s worth of permits were pulled.

Overall, Lee County Community Development issued 5,704 new building permits of all kinds in January.

Begin Your Own Property Search:

So, if you’re ready to begin your Southwest Florida Real Estate search, I encourage you to explore my website to find information about communities in Southwest Florida.  If golf is your game, I specialize in golf community real estate and would be happy to help you navigate the more than 100 different golf communities in our area.  If you prefer a more direct approach, I will provide a list of properties that meet your criteria and/or communities that meet your needs.

Bottom Line:

Naples Florida Homes SoldIf you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it’s more complex than a typical home purchase.  As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf communities.  There are many different fee structures, membership options, pet restrictions, demographics and many other details that apply to the SWFL golf communities.

Also, 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 may be able to help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.

If you’re looking for information about a specific community in Bonita Springs, Estero or Naples, please contact me and I will prepare a custom market report for you.  I will provide the market information and insights to help make sure you select your dream home!

Lastly, I will handle all contract negotiations for your property from offer to close!
