The Housing Market in Lee County is Back!

In February 2009, five years ago, The New York Times offered a story under a Lehigh Acres dateline: “In Florida, Despair and Foreclosures.”  The first sentence was not just a report but a harbinger of unhappiness still to come: “Despair has moved into this once middle-class exurb of Fort Myers.”  That sentence might have been written to introduce horror stories about other exurbs or suburbs or the cities of the Southwest coast themselves, Naples or Bonita Springs, Fort Myers or Cape Coral or Port Charlotte.  The real estate market, which had suddenly begun to resemble an unhappy rodeo bull, had thrown the economy of the region, the state and the country on its head.

But that was then. Now, the unemployment rate hovers around 6 percent and real estate statistics continue to rise as well.  From south to north the numbers have changed. Buyers, significant percentages of them, are “end users” as the parlance goes, not just investors, but whoever they are, many are buying land in Florida with cash.  Mortgages are secured only with solid credit, and now in each market here, slowly shrinking inventories have reached roughly a six-month supply, a comfortable base from which to do business.

But numbers are always tricky and sometimes even misleading.  Since inventory is down prices are rising at 8 to 12 percent, depending on where one is in the market.  If you want to sell a home below $200,000 (the sweet spot is $150,000) you will be happy to be in a seller’s market because the inventory is four to six months. If you are selling between $200,000 and $350,000, you’re in a pretty even market.  But if you own a home valued at above $350,000, the inventory is 12 to 18 months and buyers are still in control.

Purchasing Land for Long-Term Investment

Vacant land can be a great alternative investment to other risky investment scenarios such as stocks and bonds.  For investors that purchase land as a long-term investment, buying land in a growing area is as vital as the investment land itself.

Studying the direction of growth of a city or town highlights areas that have become populated over a specific timeframe and where this activity has been focused.  This information is beneficial to landowners and potential land investors for a multitude of reasons.

Successful long-term land investors are picky when it comes to where they purchase real estate for investors.  They study area growth and development closely.  The more developed an area becomes, the more profitable and desirable their property will be.  Highly developed areas attract more interest, whether it is for developing businesses or residential neighborhoods.

Eventually, businesses and neighborhoods will expand throughout the majority of the town center and land for sale will be scarce.  Due to its popular location and scarcity, land that remains vacant throughout the growth of an area will become more valuable than it was in previous years.  This increases potential profit if and when a long-term investor sells creating a potential for high return on their original investment on the land.
