Inventory of what is currently on the market

287 Single family homes

506 Condominiums

270 Vacant home sites

Recap:

I am happy to once again report that Real Estate sales activity on Marco Island remains strong. The benchmark 30 year fixed rate mortgage continues to remain at historic lows BELOW 4% which continues to fuel the sales market. Smart buyers continue to take advantage of this “cheap money” and are jumping in to get their piece of Paradise. It also appears that many buyers are end users, not speculators. Currently, the strongest individual market segment is vacant home sites with the number of Year-To-Date sales at 114, compared to 59 for the same period last year. That is a 93% increase in the number of sold home sites!
