Even with the 2017-18 season well past, the rental market is still ‘very tight.’ A search of the local MLS-controlled public access sites for a 2019 season rental at a rate of between $2,000 and $4,000 per month in Naples, Marco, Ft Myers Beach, and Bonita-Estero — reveals only about 100 properties.
Is that all there is? Well, no. Continue reading Rentals: what to expect.
“The Green Flash” is a worldwide phenomenon — but lots of people learn about it in Naples. That’s because watching sunsets is in Southwest Florida second only to golf as a favorite sport.
Only a handful of folks I chat with on the green flash topic claim to having seen one. That, I believe, is because of two factors.
(1) The name. It’s not really a flash — more like a blip. A very brief one, like a half a second. Don’t look for a bolt of green lightning. The disc of the sun, seconds before slipping beneath the water line, turns from yellow to green for that brief moment.
(2) Weather. It takes a very clear mass of air and a sharp horizon to create the optical conditions necessary for seeing ‘the green flash.’ We don’t get much cool, dry air here other than in the winter. If you’re not wearing a sweater — it’s probably not going to be a good evening for experiencing your first green flash.
It’s however worth the effort. Legend has it that those who have seen a green flash at sunset (or sunrise) will henceforth never go wrong in matters of the heart.

We do have wet and dry — with the latter more famously called “season.” That means when snowbirds and winter residents are here. Continue reading Language: What is a “season?”
As a certified Resort and Second Home Property Specialist, I’m in daily contact with some component of the new home industry because, frankly, I truly believe there can be significant upside to brand new construction over that associated with the resale market. Now, blanket statements never apply universally and I readily admit one should weigh both options as part of the due diligence associated with any sizable transaction. The new construction market does have some very attractive aspects that most buyers of second home properties should at the least seek to have weighed and evaluated by qualified professional advisors.
