Why should you use an exclusive buyer’s agent when buying a new construction home? You may know that builders have builder’s representatives that are available to assist them in choosing different floorplans and finishes. However, they aren’t necessarily looking out for your best interests as the buyer. Those representatives are hired by the builder to get the best price for themselves.

Unlike builder’s agents, a buyer’s agent will work exclusively for you to get the best deal possible for your home. Builders love to work with local Realtors. When we bring buyers into their model homes and work with them, the builder usually takes care of the commission, so why not work with an exclusive buyer’s agent? We’re free to work with!



We can help you decide which builders will best suit your needs.


One perk of working with a buyer’s agent is that we can help you decide which builders will best suit your needs. We have the local knowledge of who the good, the bad, and the ugly are. We can help identify the best builder for your situation. We can also provide information about comparables in the area, how much you should be paying, as well as additional community information.

Not only will we be there to help make your initial decisions, but through the entire process of purchasing a home, whether that’s choosing finishes, following up with the construction process, reviewing contracts, and more. With so many options in Southwest Florida, we’re here to help you make those critical decisions along the way. 

If you’re interested in learning more about new construction or what the new construction market is doing in Southwest Florida, you can visit our website, call, or email us. We would love to speak with you!

The Latest News and Numbers From Our Lee County Market

As we look at the latest statistics from our Lee County market, we see that home values are increasing.

For your latest Lee County market snapshot, let’s look at some key statistics from last July and compare them to July 2019.

First, closed sales rose 8.2% and the median sale price rose 2%, which means if you list your home this year, you’ll likely earn a better price than you would’ve last year. This also means if you’re thinking of buying a home, now’s the time to start shopping.

Furthermore, active listings rose 1.8%, which means buyers have more options to choose from. This might also explain why the median time to contract for homes rose 10.6% from 66 days to 73 days. This increase also allows buyers more time to make a decision.

Now, let’s do a city-by-city breakdown:


  • In Sanibel and Captiva, homes sales increased 135.7% 
  • In Bonita Springs, homes sales rose 31.7%
  • In Cape Coral, home sales rose 10.8%
  • In Fort Myers, home sales rose 7%


Obviously, this means now’s the time to buy if you live in any of these areas or you’re looking to move there. Traditionally, the Florida real estate market experiences a bit of a slowdown during the summer (as opposed to the winter, when activity ramps up due to the increase in seasonal buyers). However, we haven’t seen a slowdown this year. In fact, our business has actually increased compared to last year.

In short, the market is hot—especially for condos and townhomes. Sales for these types of homes rose 17.2% year over year, and prices rose 4.4%. If you’re a condo or townhome seller, now’s definitely the time to list it if you want to get top dollar. The season is changing, and we’ll soon see more out-of-state buyers entering our market to escape those cold, snowy winters.

If you’re shopping for a condo or townhome, now is still a great time to buy because there’s still a sizeable amount of inventory available. However, it’s taking buyers longer to get these types of homes under contract.
