I’m always happy to share these articles which show that Southwest Florida and Cape Coral consistently rank in many surveys as one of the best places to live, retire and find happiness. My goal, as a Real Estate Solutions Provider, is to help my clients find their dream home in this wonderful Floridian paradise that will meet their needs and wants along with their budget.  If you or someone you know is in the market to purchase a home, condo or lot in the area please have them give me a call at 239-425-2503.

Florida is your happy place, a new survey shows

logo-NAPL-27698Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof.

Because you’re happy — at least if you live in Florida, according to a list compiled by HomeAdvisor, a Golden, Colorado-based company that matches contractors with owners who need work done to their homes.

In the spring, HomeAdvisor surveyed 17,629 homeowners across the country, asking them 87 questions to assess how happy they were in their homes.

They found contentment came from three factors:

  • how accessible the house is to important local services and attractions;
  • how safe, diverse and well-knit the surrounding neighborhood is;
  • how comfortable, affordable and well-functioning the home itself is.

Based on those criteria, Florida was in the top 10 states for happy homeownership, ranking sixth.

Outranking the Sunshine State were, in order, California, Washington, New Mexico, Colorado and Arkansas.

The least happy states were Mississippi, Maryland, Indiana, New Jersey and Delaware.

Miami ranks seventh among cities

The survey focused only on the country’s largest cities; breakdowns for the Naples and Fort Myers weren’t available.

However, of 36 cities nationwide, Miami ranked seventh and West Palm Beach 15th.

But other recent surveys have pointed to the Naples area, at least, as a place to find your bliss.

Southwest Florida communities

Last month, the Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island metro area topped the annual Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being survey, which measured everything from physical health to a sense of security in 190 metro areas nationwide.

Naples was particularly rich in people who think their community and social ties are strong and who have a sense of purpose, the study found.

Florida ranked 12th on the list of happiest states, the Gallup-Healthways survey found.

In 2014, two economics professors from Harvard and the University of British Columbia analyzed data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a number of other studies measuring self-reported life satisfaction, controlling for income, race, education, marital status and family size.

The Naples area was fourth on that list of happiest places, after Charlottesville, Virginia; Rochester, Minnesota; and Lafayette, Louisiana.

Top 5 Things You Should Know as a Home Seller about buyers!

Posted in Bob Ashworth, Bob Ashworth Realtor, Buying a Home in SWFL, Buying a Home SWFL, Cape Coral, Cape Coral Home for Sale, Cape Coral Real Estate, Cape Coral Real Estate Market, Cape Coral Realtor, FL Real Estate Market Update, Florida Housing Market, Florida Real Estate, Fort Myers News, Fort Myers Real Estate, Home Selling tips, Homes for Sale SWFL, Lee County Homes, Real Estate Advice, Real Estate Market, Real Estate News, SWFL Home Sales, SWFL Home Selling Advice, SWFL Home Tips, SWFL Homes for Sale, SWFL Market News, SWFL Real Estate, Uncategorized

Home Selling Tips Cape Coral

Home Selling Advice Cape CoralTop 5 things home sellers don’t know about buyers, but need to.

  1. Home buyers decide to not buy your home before they ever see it in person.

Let’s face it, virtually no one buys a home site unseen. What sellers don’t realize however is that more than 90% of all buyers shop homes online. Now they may not decide to buy your home after only viewing it online, however they do decide NOT to buy your home after only viewing it online.

Case in point. Three of my last four buyers viewed less than 4 homes in person before entering into a contact to buy one of them. They weren’t uninformed buyers! They performed their due diligence online and didn’t waste time viewing homes in person that didn’t meet with their approval online. The quantity and quality of your online presence matters more than you know!

  1. When buyers actually visit your home in person, it’s just a commodity to them. A house if you will, but not a (their) home. Buyers establish an emotional connection to your house (now seeing it as their home) once they decide to sign their names to an offer to purchase. Never before though.
  1. Buyers who view you home in person, know in less than 5 minutes from arriving that they do not want to buy your home. 
  1. Buyers almost never offer as much for your home as they are willing to pay. They offer what they hope you might accept. How much they are willing to pay can only be determined after an effective negotiation. (If you’re not an experienced, highly effective negotiator who knows the local market inside and out, hire a Realtor who is.)
  1. Buyers are uncomfortable getting a feel for your home, when you are present during showings. Oh they may be polite, but they can’t wait to get out of there so they can say to their agent “wow that was weird”. Hint: if you must let them in, take a walk down the street so they can get a feel for your house to see if it might suit them as their home. Buyers shop within a range of specifications, but they buy based on emotion. It has to FEEL right!

7  Things Buyers Can Expect at an Open House

Home Buying Tips SWFLTouring homes can be one of the better parts of the home buying process. For a brief moment you can envision your life in what might be your new home! Still, stepping into someone else’s home, especially during an open house, can be intimidating. Here’s what you can expect:

1. To be asked to sign in.
The agent will ask you to sign in with your contact information so he or she can follow up. Of course you are free to decline.

2. To remove your shoes.
After all, the homeowners has worked hard to make the place sparkle. Tracking dirt onto the carpet or hardwood destroys their effort.

3. (Not) to meet the seller.
Sellers working with an agent usually leave during open houses. This provides you the opportunity to explore free from the distraction of a hovering owner.

4. To scope out the competition.
The number of other people touring the home (and the amount of traffic throughout the day, which you can track on the sign-in sheet if you visit on the late side) can give you a good indication of the level of interest in the property.

5. To wait your turn.
If there are several groups during your visit, wait for them to leave a room before you enter. It’s a great chance to eavesdrop as they may ask the Realtor questions you hadn’t thought of, or comment on features you might not notice yourself.

6. To meet the neighbors.
Chances are, they’ll stop by for a peek. Ask them about the neighborhood. They’re the experts, after all.

7. To hold your tongue.
The Realtor will most likely ask you questions about your home search. Be savvy about what you reveal. Don’t give away any information that could compromise your bargaining power.

Not all homes on the market hold an open house. To expand your touring options, consider working with a buyer’s agent. Talk to Bob Ashworth today about your home buying needs in Southwest Florida. Click here to view original RE/MAX blog post.

Not all Real Estate Agents are Created Equal

SWFL Home Buying Tips

Should home buyers call the listing agent when making a home purchase?

The short answer is NO!

Cape Coral Home Buying TipsBeyond that, let me start by stating the obvious, that all real estate professionals are not created equal. While you certainly may end up dealing with an agent who is helpful and honest, he or she has made a commitment to represent the seller’s best interest in the sale of their home.

It’s like going to court and using the other side’s attorney. Think about it, you just wouldn’t do it! Oh sure, a few buyers believe that if they deal directly with the listing agent, that they will be able to get the home for a lower amount because the agent will reduce their commission with not needing to pay a cooperating broker. While this may occur, don’t count on it! Though regardless, there is still no experienced real estate pro protecting your interest.

In all honesty, many buyers don’t have any idea the ways in which a good experienced real estate professional looks out for their interest in a contract negotiation. Most buyers think that the price is about the only thing in play. Wrong! Every real estate transaction is about price and terms, including timelines for inspections, appraisal, loan approvals etc. My experience tells me that all buyers need guidance. Even those who don’t think they do. Sometimes especially those who don’t think they do!

A full time real estate professional is writing and negotiating real estate contracts every week. If you have your thumb on the pulse of the market and negotiate dozens to hundreds of deals every year, go ahead and make an offer with the list agent. Otherwise, tap into the experience of a good buyers agent assist you with your real estate purchase. The best agents of course are the ones who list and sell homes as well as work with buyers to make a purchase. For instance, I use my experience with buyers on other listings to counsel my sellers on the current mindset of the buying public, and vice versa.

As an added bonus, in virtually all cases, including shopping for a builder to build your new construction home whether it be on your own lot, a lot you purchase, or a home in a developing community; your agent’s commission will be paid by the seller, or builder as the case may be. What many people fail to realize is that the Multiple Listing Service or MLS, is the greatest networking platform ever devised. All Realtor listings get uploaded into the MLS by the listing agent, with a cooperating commission amount clearly displayed to any and all other Realtor’s in that area. While the listing agent may not yet have a buyer for that new listing, maybe one of the thousands of agents associated with the MLS is already working with a buyer looking for a home just like that.

So the next time you are going to buy a home, commit yourself to working with a good experienced Realtor. If it’s SW Florida where you’re buying, I’ll be happy to help you. My pledge is that I will never try to sell you a home; I’ll help you buy one. The one that is right for you and your budget.

Let the SWFL Real Estate Expert Help you Sell Your Home!

Bob Ashworth photo card 2Listening to a radio ad by John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan Law Offices reminded me that I work in a very similar way as Morgan & Morgan.

This particular ad focused on helping people with legal problem while shouldering all the expenses along the way. All of the legal filings, depositions, investigatory work etc. Mr. Morgan claims that he will do all the work necessary to reach successful conclusion to your case, or you owe him nothing!

This is the exact same offer that I pose to everyone of my sellers. I will use my knowledge, skills and experience to market your home. Guide you in contract negotiations, then manage the myriad of items necessary to reach a successful closing on your home, or you owe me nothing!

If you are thinking about selling your home, call me to discuss how my Unique Home Selling System will ensure that you get the most amount of money from your sale in the least amount of time that the market will bear.

If on the other hand you are planning to make a home, land, condo or new home construction purchase you’re in luck. As in virtually all cases, you can take advantage of my experience, tap my knowledge and in general have me help you make the right choice for you and your budget, and the seller or builder / developer, as the case may be, will pay my commission. Why would anyone you pass that up?

The bottom line is there is good experienced professional help available. If you buy or sell a 1/2 dozen homes a year, you may be able to go it alone. If you’re like most people who buy or sell a 1/2 dozen homes in a lifetime, call me to help you. On average I’m helping either a buyer or seller close on a Southwest Florida property 2 or 3 times a month, and have been for over 10 years. Experience matters! Put it to work for you..
