Gateway Real Estate News – Gateway 2017 sees the 2nd Highest Number of Real Estate

Sales & Increase in Sales Price.

 

The local Gateway real estate market saw the 2nd highest number of Real Estate sales in the last 10 years; along with an increase in the average sales price.

The total number of residential real estate sales in Gateway for 2017 was 366 residential units sold, a slight increase over the 363 residential units sold in 2016. But overall 2017’s total residential sales of 366 unit is above the annual average of 340 homes sold since 2008. In fact, the last three years have been the top 3 years of total residential units sold since 2008.

All that in spite of Hurricane Irma, which made landfall on September 10th, causing extensive damage locally and forcing many residents to be without power for several days. Moreover, sales totals for the month of September were actually above the 10 year average with 32 sales taking place. The months of October and November were also above the 10 year average for sales totals (27 sales for October and 26 sales for November) and the month of December finished right at the 10 year average. Quite a testament to the way the community weathered the storm and also to how quick recovery efforts were in the area.

 

Continuing the upward trend; the average sales price for a Single-family residence in Gateway for 2017 was $315,974.00, which was about a 4.2% increase in sales price versus the 2016 average Single-family home sales price of $303,272.00. However, with that increase in sales price Single-family homes within Gateway did see about a 10% median increase in cumulative days on the market. So the average real estate sales cycle, from listing the home to sale, in Gateway went from just over 3 months to almost 4 months.

Multi-Family Residences (example – Condos, Townhomes, Carriage Homes, etc.) saw an increase in average sales price with the 2017 average sales price being $168,989.00 and the average sales price being $156,273.00. That amounted to an almost 8% increase average sales price for a multi-family home.

 

The new construction communities of Hampton Park, Timberwood Preserve and Hammock Cove are bringing more inventory to the area and plays a part in increasing those sales numbers. But, overall those 366 residential sales is a dramatic improvement from the 205 sales that occurred just 10 years during the recession in 2008 and equates to an almost 79% increase in annual sales.

 

The Maciaszek Real Estate Team, one of the top producers within Gateway, has seen an improving trend in their own business with both total number of homes sold and annual average sales price rising for The Maciaszek Real Estate Team in 2017 calendar year.

 

The continuation of new construction, expanding commercial developments and increased hiring of local businesses within the Gateway area make this a very attractive location for new residents.

 

All this information is great news for local Gateway residents looking to explore the possibility of selling their home and assuring buyers looking to purchase within Gateway that they are making a good financial investment.

However, the total number of Single-family residences sold decreased this past year, with 266 Single-Family homes sold in 2016. Comparing that to 295 Single-family homes sold in 2015 is almost a 10% decrease in the number of Single-family homes sold.

 

Multi-Family Residences (example – Condos, Townhomes, Carriage Homes, etc.) saw an increase in both number of sales and average sales price with 93 multi-family homes sold and an average sales price of $155,856.00. 2015 sales for multi-family residences equaled 87 units sold and an average sales price of $136,148.00.

Gateway Real Estate News – 2015 a Record Setting Sales Year for Residential Real Estate in Gateway

Gateway Real Estate News - 2015 a Record Setting Sales Year for Residential Real Estate in Gateway

Gateway Real Estate News – 2015 a Record Setting Sales Year for Residential Real Estate in Gateway

2015 will mark the largest number of Residential Real Estate transactions in the history of Gateway. The current number of Residential Real Estate sales sits at 372 transactions for the year, well above the 8 year average of 327 Residential Real Estate transactions per year.

The average sales price for a single family residence for the fiscal year 2015 within Gateway currently averages $291,737. That current average sales price for a single family Gateway home is 4.08% higher than 2014’s average sales price of $280,292 and almost 16% higher than 2013’s average sales price. In fact, the 2015 average Single Family Home sales price sits almost 53% higher than the average sales price during the housing market decline.

The increase in Residential Real Estate sales for Gateway can be almost directly related to single family home sales, which saw an almost 25% increase in the number of single family homes sold in 2015 versus 2014.

Following that trend Heather Maciaszek, the Gateway Real Estate Expert who is a top producer in Gateway the last two years, has seen the similar increases in average sales prices. The increase in new construction and commercial developments within the Gateway area make this a very attractive location for new residents.

All this information is good news for local Gateway residents looking to explore the possibility of selling their home and residents hoping the market continues to rebound from the lows of the recession.

Heather & Darin Maciaszek at Royal Shell Celebrates their 100th Gateway Real Estate Sale in just 4 Years!!

Heather & Darin Maciaszek of The Maciaszek Real Estate Team Celebrates their 100th Gateway Real Estate Sale in just 4 Years!!

Today the The Maciaszek Real Estate Team celebrated their 100th Gateway Real Estate sale in 4 years with a closing in Stoneybrook at Gateway. Heather and Darin Maciaszek of The Maciaszek Real Estate Team have been focusing on Gateway, a community in which they are long time residents, for about four years now. And in that 4 year period they have not only been involved in 100 Gateway sales, but have become the top producers for all of the Gateway area.

Heather and Darin Maciaszek focus on a professional and personal relationship that is about getting results. They concentrate on selling your home and not themselves. They work to help you buy a home by being plainspoken about the properties you will be making a significant investment into.  That focal point is evident in the numerous positive reviews they receive from customers and the clients that keep coming back to them for their Real Estate needs.

There is something important about having an agent who is passionate about selling your home and the features that encompass the area around it. Darin Maciaszek said, “It is really an easy sell because I love all that the neighborhood has to offer; including the tree lined paths and roadways throughout the community, the parks, local Gateway events, restaurants and the overall community feeling from all the neighbors”. Darin continued, “Gateway is a neighborhood with a lot to offer from the community activities like the Movies in the Park, the Holiday Tree Lighting and sporting events. The convenience and community of a local daycare, church, an animal hospital, salon, dry cleaner and other businesses all right here in Gateway. Additionally, I can enjoy a night out right here in my own community at Boulevard Tavern, Fort Myers Brewing Company, Rock’n Sushi or take my children to the local ice cream shop. Plenty of friends and neighbors work in Gateway or very close to the community, so this is a truly a place you can live, work and play.”

Heather and Darin Maciaszek also take time to give back to the Gateway community by helping friends and neighbors and working with the local community charity Gateway Gives. The charity has run or taken part in several Gateway events including Festival in the Park, the annual Gateway Gives Charity Golf Tournament at Gateway Golf & Country Club, Gateway Community Camp Out, Sports Tournaments and other activities. The money raised at those events has helped the charity assist local Gateway families in times of need, education assistance, donate equipment and items to the local Gateway community. Darin and Heather also work to sponsor local sports teams, neighborhood events or work to help organize those events as well. Additionally they are also fostering a puppy and supporting Southeastern Guide Dogs a non-profit organization that provides Guide Dogs for the visually impaired, Paws for Patriots that act as service dogs or therapy dogs for United States Military Veterans, companion dogs for children or public service dogs.

Heather and Darin are truly honored to have reached such a milestone because of the families, neighbors and friends that trusted them with such an important transaction as selling or buying your home. These Local Gateway Experts are committed to getting the results you deserve. As they also close their 101st Gateway sale today; they hope to continue to grow their Real Estate business in the area, their relationships and their support for the Gateway community. Thank you!
