Bonita Bay Real Estate News | October 2015

Where did “Season” go? Typically, there’s a noticeable swing in population in Southwest Florida — a very noticeable swing in volume and duration of residents. Not so much this year. Bonita Bay residents have already begun to populate the golf courses, tennis courts, recreational facilities and restaurants — and we just hit the October mark, so, welcome back!

For those of who recently arrived, I’m certain you’ll enjoy another wonderful Fall and Winter in Bonita Bay — as those of us year-rounders do each day. During the Summer months, real estate remained strong in spite of a lack of home inventory in our area. Florida’s housing market continued its positive track with more closed sales, higher median prices and a tightening inventory throughout the state. Be sure to contact me for the most up-to-date information regarding the local real estate market.

A reminder, you have access to the most comprehensive website devoted to Bonita Bay, www.bonitabaypropertiesforsale.com. I’ve included maps, floor plans, photos, and descriptions of each neighborhood within this desirable community.

Whether you are buying or selling, if you are looking for REALTOR® representation, think of me.

closed sales volume earlier this year than normal, and we continue to carry a large inventory
