    Buyer Tips in Low Inventory Market

    Buyer Tips in Low Inventory Market

    Inventory and economics create the demand that produces real estate market conditions. While buyer's don't like to hear the term "Seller's Market" any more than sellers like to hear that it's a "Buyer's Market", these terms simply convey the current inventory or market absorption rate. The absorption rate is calculated by dividing the number of homes sold in the allotted time period by the total number of available homes.

    How buyers can prevail in a low inventory market:

    1. The first step is to acknowledge and understand that you are in a seller's market and adjust your home buying strategy to reflect it. One way to determine the market conditions is to understand the absorption rate. The absorption rate is simply how many months or days it will take to seel all the remaining inventory on the market in a given area and or price range.

    Golf Courses on Sanibel

    Golf Courses on Sanibel

    Golfing in Nature on Sanibel Island

    The surroundings are part of what makes a golf course special. Pebble Beach offers spectacular Pacific Ocean views, TPC its mountains, Augusta its azaleas, but here on Sanibel, you can enjoy the game in a setting of unusual wildlife and tropical foliage.

    Bermuda hybrids are typically the preferred grass for the sandy soil. Palms, gumbo limbos, poincianas, and other exotic trees line the golf courses. Yellow and red canna lilies bloom along the edges of the water, allowing you to enjoy the beauty even while hunting for a wayward golf ball.

    Equestrian Facilities and Resources

    For the Horse Enthusiast in Southwest Florida by Amy von Keyserlingk

    When we first decided to move to Sanibel, I began dividing my search time between real estate websites and equine websites. I admit, it was tough getting used to the idea that I would have to spend time commuting over half an hour or more in order to see my horse, especially since I like to ride at least four days a week.

    There are no longer any horses on Sanibel, and riding on the beach is prohibited. A friend of mine did have a small barn here with three horses and a dressage arena before moving away.
