Sales at North Star Yacht Club, a luxury riverfront condominium community, have flourished since December with 17 home sales reported within the last 45 days. In addition, weekly walk in traffic more than doubled during last quarter 2009. This sudden surge of activity is one indicator that the real estate picture is brightening in Southwest Florida and that astute buyers recognize the benefits of good timing.
The Marketing Directors, exclusive sales and marketing agents for North Star Yacht Club located in North Fort Myers, FL, announced that 23 residences have been sold since March 2009, attributing success to several factors which include:
• Value pricing starting at $229,900 for a condominium which was originally listed at $758,900, and other dramatic reductions on the large two and three-bedroom floorplans, all with water views;
• Increased interest from international buyers seeking a second home in FL;
• An aggressive marketing effort that includes advertising in airline and international publications, on-line banner ads, the launch of a redesigned website (NorthStarYachtClub.com), online videos and a social media campaign;
• An offer of a one-year deep water slip lease included on select homes.
“We are making great strides in the Southwest Florida market,” commented David Tufts, president, The Marketing Directors. “Value pricing has stimulated a strong jump start, with recent sales results reflecting the trend toward diminishing real estate inventory.”
