Most of us have too much stuff. When we move we try to sell, give away, and just get rid of much of it. In the end, there's just some stuff you want/need to keep.

Consumer Alert – Dryer Vent Cleaning

Consumer Alert – Dryer Vent Cleaning

Posted by Jill Winchel, Realtor at Royal Shell Real Estate

Keeping your dryer vent clean is important. When lint builds up in a dryer vent the dryer will not perform as it was intended and may cause a fire. It will also take more time to dry a load and cost more money. It is recommended that lint is removed from the trap after each load, although some still escapes and travels through the vent pipe. Dryer lint

Here in Cape Coral, the majority of the homes have the vent installed from near the floor straight up through the attic and out the roof. This vent pipe could be 10-15 feet long. You will see the upside down J vent cap on rooftops. If moisture or debris gets in the vent it may not clear as intended.

Dryer vent top

Vents should be cleaned at least once a year. If you are purchasing a home and are unsure when the vent was last cleaned, go ahead and get it cleaned. A local company that you can call is Reliable Dryer Vent 239-687-6622. Consumer Alert – Dryer Vent Cleaning

Sunset Towers Condos in Cape Coral

 

Sunset Towers Condos in Cape Coral 

Sunset Towers

Is Getting a Facelift

Sunset Towers Condos in Cape Coral

 

Sunset Towers is one of the earliest high-rise communities built in Cape Coral. Built in 1968, the twin 8 story buildings have had some upgrades, both inside and out, over the years. Soon the familiar orange will be no more.

The two buildings are located on Cape Coral Parkway, with the South building (4807) closest to Bimini Basin and the North building (4803) closest to the road. They are on a direct Gulf access canal with tie-up dockage available. A pool is in between the two buildings. Community rooms are underneath the buildings so although 8 stories high, there are only 7 floors with units. Covered parking and a waterfront dock are additional amenities. Community laundry facilities are on each floor.

Spacious two bedroom/ two bath units with multiple sliders and an L shaped balcony affords wonderful views of the Bimini Basin and beyond, depending on the floor. Sailboats moor in the basin throughout the year and the Holiday Boat-A-Long commences there each December.

This complex is located across the canal from Four Freedoms Park, where the city holds many annual events. You are walking distance to restaurants and shopping; biking distance to Yacht Club Beach & Park; and a short drive to the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel. The Sunset Towers Condos in Cape Coral are also right in the heart of the Bimini Basin Project .

My buyers were in town on vacation and decided they wanted to view some listings. Once we viewed a couple of homes together I was clear on what they were looking for...a nice home with a great view in Southwest Cape Coral. I continued to send them listings and show them homes. Just days before they left town we found the home for them. They went under contract and actually had to stay with friends for a couple of nights so that they would be in town for the home inspection. I was sending them Gulf Access Pool Homes for Sale in SW Cape Coral listings.

In My Customer's Words

We called on a sign we saw and were connected with Jill. That house wasn't for us, but she offered to try and find what we wanted. Jill worked hard to match our specific list of must haves with available properties and showed us a lot of homes before we made our selection. The one we bought was one she found and that was "just right" for us. She was very attentive and responsive during the whole process. I would recommend Jill without reservation.

When is the BEST TIME to Sell a Cape Coral Home?

We are often asked “should I wait until season to sell my house?” or “should I wait to buy off-season?” The short answer is no. 

The facts based on 11 years of Cape Coral sales statistics follow:

The highest real estate sales quarter is indeed the 2nd quarter - typically due to homes which went under contract during season.  High season, across all types of residential properties, is 28% to 30% of annual sales. The remaining 3 quarters range from 23% to 24% and account for about 71% of annual real estate sales. Many more home sales occur outside of season than it.

                                    When is the best time to sell a Cape Coral Home           

Do homes sell for more money during “season”?

In general, the answer is no. Off-water homes statistically show no seasonal difference in median sale price. Waterfront homes and condos over the years show about a 2% higher sales price during the peak season. The prices are close enough that the correlation to season is not conclusive.

Conclusion

Buyers and sellers are here all year, so your choice of when to buy or sell a home should be made based on your needs and not thinking that there is a magic time of year. The odds are that your perfect buyer would be one of the 71% buying “off -season”.  Likewise, some other buyer may find your perfect home. Your probability of selling is much more influenced by being well presented in marketing and having the proper price to get buyers attention. As a home buyer, your best bet is to buy when you are ready and use a great agent and real estate search site to see all the best listings as they come available.
