Recently Sold on Sanibel…

It’s safe to say the market is hot, hot, hot right now! Periwinkle Way is buzzing with bikes and beach-goers. Home buyers are here in town looking at properties on the market… homeowners are busy with showings and offers… and we are working overtime to help make it all happen!


What an exciting time it is, especially if you are still toying with the idea of selling your home here on Sanibel. Even though it’s the end of February, we still have a number of potential home buyers in town, and a handful of clients with flights scheduled in the coming weeks.

As properties continue to “fly off the shelves,” there’s certainly a need to replenish the inventory of homes here on the island. If you are wondering what your home could sell for… you can get a quick preview just by typing your home address into our online home evaluation tool here. It will ask a few questions about your home and will give you a price range based on previous home sales similar to yours.

Hopefully this helps give you a good glimpse of the market, how quickly homes are selling and at what price point. Of course there are a number of variables that go into each home sale, most of which you can’t see just by looking at the stats. Just keep this in mind when comparing the sales above to your own home, or your neighbor’s down the street.

If you’re looking for the most accurate assessment of your home, we’d be happy to speak with you directly about these recent home sales, and how your home compares to those currently on the market.
