Cape Coral lots with new assessments for city water and sewer

If you own property in SW or NW Cape Coral which has recently been assessed for public utility betterment of city water and sewer, contact me before paying your balance in full.

There is demand for affordable land that will soon be served by city water and sewer. The assessment balance can and very often does transfer to the subsequent property owner. Then the balance, which will be automatically added to the annual tax bill, is gradually paid over 20 years.

Think about it! Many of these buildable lots have a current value of $12,000 to $15,000. We can sell those lots and transfer both the benefit and burden to the buyer. Should you decide to pay off your nearly $19,000 assessment balance in its entirety, you must now sell the lot valued at $12,000 for $31,000. Bear in mind that there are no comparable sales to support that sales price. In addition, people will part with $12 or $15,000 fairly easily to own a piece of land in Cape Coral. The fact that city water & sewer will be available really soon will be another benefit for the buyer. Their burden is that their annual tax bill will include an additional amount of approximately $1500. Not a big deal. It pales in comparison to forking over $31,000 up front.

The same principle applies to homes, although it’s not as dramatic.

Are you sitting on an undeveloped piece of land?

Envelope with Last Will and Testament

Envelope with Last Will and Testament

Have you or your parents been holding onto SW Florida property with no intention of ever using it? The time to sell it is now while the owners are alive and of sound mind. The property may not be worth a whole lot of money, assuming it’s vacant land not on gulf access canal, but the expense associated with trying to sell it after it has been left to heirs via a will, may likely eat into the value by far too much.

Florida is a probate state. Property left to an heir by will must be probated by the courts prior to any transfer of ownership taking place.

I’m currently working on a situation now where the market value is $6500 however the property was never probated after it was left to the heirs in the will. About $1500 in charges is now necessary to get the property through probate.

If you have vacant land in Cape Coral or Lehigh Acres that you never intend to use, and you’re getting along in years and plan to give the land to your children or others after your death, please do them a favor, and sell it now. You can always give them the cash after your death if you wish. They will appreciate it much more than hiring an attorney to probate the property before they can sell it.

Contact me. I can help!
