Cape Harbour Single Family Home Market Update


There are currently 10 Active listings on the market in Cape Harbour with a median price of $1,098,250. The highest priced listing is a 11447 sq. ft. 6 bedroom 9 bathroom home for $6,950,000. The lowest priced listings in Cape Harbour are currently two homes listed at $699,900.

There are 3 homes in Cape Harbour that are under contract.

Sales have been fairly strong in Cape Harbour so far this year. There have been 8 homes sold through July. This  is nearly as many as were sold in all of 2010. This shows me that there is strong demand even as prices continue to rise. Out of those 8 sales 7 of them were Gulf Access homes. None of them were distressed properties (short sales or foreclosures).

The median sales price so far this year is $808,500. The highest sold single family home went for $2,100,000 and the lowest sold price was $515,000. The average sale price in Cape Harbour so far in 2012 is $970,875. This is slightly up from last year.

The average days on market was 79 and the homes sold on average at 96% of their list price.

With the amount of inventory decreasing prices will continue to rise. With other factors such as extremely low interest rates now is the time to buy in Cape Harbour.

Cape Harbour High Rise Condo Market Report

Cape Harbour High Rise Condo Market Report

The median sales price of a condo in Cape Harbour has rebounded off the bottom from 2011 of $265,000 and is currently $284,500 through the first half of 2012. While most economic indicators have shown housing prices rebounding in Lee County and Cape Coral specifically it has taken condominiums a little longer to catch the wave of recovery.

So far in 2012 there have been 10 sold units with the highest priced sale at $430,000 and the lowest priced at $190,000. The average sale price so far this year is $284,000.

There are currently 10 active listings in the high rise towers at Cape Harbour. The least expensive list price is $190,000 and the highest price unit is $337,000. The average list price is currently $272,090. Four of these are short sales and the rest are traditional sellers. There are currently 6 units under contract. At current sales rates there is about a 6 months supply of inventory. This is a little on the high side and is because prices have increased so demand has slightly decreased. Buyers are still trying hard to find a deal.

My belief is that the prices have bottomed and are on the way back up. How quickly they increase is going to be determined by many factors. With interest rates at historical lows now is probably the time to buy before prices and rates increase much more.

Cape Harbour Market Update February 2012

 There are currently 14 Single Family Homes on the market in Cape Harbour. The highest priced home for sale currently is $1,970,000 with the lowest being listed at $449,000. The median list price of a Cape Harbour home is $799,450. Only one of those properties is a short sale and none of them are foreclosures.

In January one Cape Harbour home sold for $2,100,000 and two went under contract.

There are only 5 condos in the high rises the are Active on the market. Marina South had one sale last month and 8 condos go under contract. There are currently no foreclosures on the market and only one short sale. The median list price for a Cape Harbour Condo is $284,900.

There is less than one month worth of inventory for a condominium in Cape Harbour which is good news for sellers as supply and demand should drive prices higher.

Only 2 units are available in Marina View at Cape Harbour. One of the Mid-Rise condos is listed at $350,000 and one at $590,000. Both of these listings are non-distressed sales. One unit sold in here last month for $430,000.

There is only one Townhouse available currently in Cape Harbour and it is listed for $255,000.

Cape Harbour is an extremely desirable place to live and buyers are realizing that now is the time to act. As inventory continues to diminish prices will continue to increase.

Cape Harbour High Rise Condo Sales Report 2011 Review

Marina South at Cape Harbour saw a decrease in both number of units sold in 2011 and in median sales price. Compared to the rest of the condo market in Southwest Florida, my opinion is that  overall the condo market in Cape Harbour is pretty decent and has probably already bottomed out. Like most areas of Cape Coral and really Lee County for that matter the number of distressed properties seems to  be shrinking. Real Estate is a commodity much like oil or corn. It is simple supply and demand. The benefit that the high rise condos have is there is little in the way of competition in Cape Coral with Tarpon Point Marina being the only similar project here. The demand is still high for luxury condo living with the kind of amenities that Cape Harbour has to offer and as the supply of short sales and foreclosures is sold off, the prices should rise going forward. The graphs below represent year over year sales comparisons in number of units sold and median sales price respectively.

Units Sold by Year:

2007- 9 Sold

2008- 26 Sold

2009- 20 Sold

2010- 25 Sold

2011- 21 Sold

Median Sales Price:

2007- $479,200

2008- $349,000

2009- $374,500

2010- $282,000

2011- $265,000
