Gulf Front

SANIBEL ISLAND Condo for Sale

 

Premier location on Sanibel Island, Gulfside Place is 14+ acres of tropical landscaping along with 1,225 feet of beachfront. Unit 215 was the builder’s model and personal home. It is centrally located on the property and overlooks the beach, not one of the pools, so all you hear is the surf.

The 2 bedroom plus den and 2 bath unit feels like a home with 1800 square feet of living space plus a 24’x7’ screened lanai. There are Gulf views from almost every room. This unit has been off the market for over 30 years!

A short walk to the sun and fun on the shell covered beach or to the other amenities: 2 heated/cooled pools, 6 tennis courts, shuffleboard, saunas, bathrooms, outdoor showers, and gas grills.

Contact me for more information on this unit or any other property on Sanibel Island.

Roofing Materials Used in SW Florida

Roofing Materials Used in SW Florida

You will see a variety of roofing materials as you drive through SW Florida or look at houses online. Some may already be familiar to you but you may see a few new ones.

Sample of Architectural Shingle RoofThe most common is the Architectural Shingle which comes in a variety of colors and consists of a heavy fiberglass mat base laminated to multiple layers of water resistant asphalt. Ceramic-coated mineral granules are ingrained in the top layer of the shingle.

 

 

A less expensive option is the Single Tab Shingle which is one layer and non-overlapping. Sample of Single Tab Shingle

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sample of Barrel Tile Roof

 

 

Tile Roofs are made of clay or cement and also come in a variety of colors, although the terra cotta tile is most common and provides a Spanish or Mediterranean feel. Roof tiles are sometimes choosen to match house paint and/or driveway pavers to keep a consistent look. The barrel type seems to be loosing ground as the flat tile has gained in popularity.

 

Sample of Flat Tile Roof

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you choose a tile roof make sure to keep it clean as a dirty tile roof is not appealing! Sample of dirty tile roof

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sample of Metal RoofThe Metal Roof is said to be the strongest and longest lasting of all the roof products but there are a variety of metal products and thicknesses, as well as, exposed screws vs standing seam options. Standing-seam roofs are expected to last between 30-50 years with very minimal maintenance.

 

 

Throughout the area you will come across older homes with a Gable Roof and newer ones with a Hip Roof or some combination of the two. The Flat Roof is reminiscent of commercial buildings but has been much used with modern, sleek looking homes in this area. Sample of Flat Roof

Roofs tend to be replaced or repaired after a major storm or hurricane. Checking on the age and condition of a roof on a home you're considering to buy is essential.

BUYING A CAPE CORAL HOME VIA FACETIME

 

BUYING A CAPE CORAL HOME

VIA FACETIME

5307 SKYLINE BLVD, CAPE CORAL FL 33914

  

I helped buyers purchase a beautiful Gulf access pool home recently and they only saw it via Facetime prior to closing!

Yes, it is possible to make a long-distance purchase in these challenging times.

My customers were interested in a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home with a pool, a nice water view, and a short boat ride out to the Gulf. After noticing a new listing pop up that matched this criteria, I immediately called the buyers and suggested a Facetime showing. The buyers were prepared to make an offer after that showing.

They went under contract quickly. I was present during the home inspection and offered advice for repairs to the buyers. Repairs were made by the sellers.

The buyers came to town for the final walk-through and closing and were thrilled with their purchase.

If you are considering buying a home in Cape Coral, please get in touch with me so that I can provide you with the same personal service.
