New Home Building Permits 2009 – 2013

The Sandoval development continued its success but represented only 17% of the new home building permits with 87. In 2012 the community totaled 96 and represented 28% of Cape Coral Fl’s total. Sandoval remains a key contributor to the city but is no longer the major player it once was as demand continues to grow in other parts of Cape Coral, Fl. The amenity rich community recently celebrated the opening of its newest addition. Two regulation size Bocce Courts. They each measure 90’ X 13’. The Sandoval Men’s Bocce League continues to grow with approximately 75  participants

Buyers are returning, according to the data. Why not? Cape Coral still has its 400 miles of canals, the Caloosahatchee River, Gulf of Mexico, proximity to Naples, Fl and Fort Myers, Fl in addition to its desirable Southwest Florida climate to attract those seeking to purchase a piece of paradise at substantial discounts when compared to a few short years ago.

Look at these numbers representing new home building permits from 2008 through 2013. The trend is obvious.

  • 2008 – 209
  • 2009 – 180
  • 2010 – 215
  • 2011 – 268
  • 2012 – 339
  • 2013 – 506

Cape Coral, Florida is still nowhere near its peak building boom year of 2005 when almost 7400 new home building permits were issued. Still, no one is complaining about the increases of the last four years after the financial crises the country experienced.  Why should they when data provided by the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Myers and The Beach shows Lee County’s median home prices jumped 21.4% to $170,000  in November 2013 vs the same period last year.

Cape Coral Florida House For Sale – New Home Building Permits June 2013

The new home building permit data compiled by the City of Cape Coral through June 2013 contains more good news for the real estate market in the city. For the fourth consecutive year, since this key matrix bottomed in 2009, the number of new home building permits issued will likely increase when compared to the previous year. The June 2013 results represent a 29% increase vs  2012.

There were 235 new house permits issued through June 2013 vs 182 through the same period in 2012. That number already exceeds the total permits issued for 2008-2010 and is only 33 permits behind the 2011 full year total of 268. Click the chart below to enlarge it and view the trend lines.

Cape Coral New Home Building Permits June 2013

The Sandoval development continued to be a key contributor to the increase. The amenity rich community accounted for 60 of the 235 permits issued for a new house year to date. In prior years, Sandoval accounted for almost 50% of the total permits for Cape Coral. There are a few reasons for the percentage decline. First, Sandoval is a victim of its own popularity. Phase II almost sold out before Phase III was prepped for building. In January 2013 Sandoval recorded only one permit due to a lack of homes sites. Construction in Phase III began in February 2013 .You can view the MLS listings for Sandoval at http://www.capecoralhouseforsale.com/properties/sandoval/ or learn about the community amenities and view over 60 photos at http://www.capecoralhouseforsale.com/learn/sandoval-cape-….

Another reason Sandoval’s percentage is down is because building is taking place in all sections of Cape Coral. New construction since 2007 had been almost totally confined to the southwest quadrant of the city.

Cape Coral Florida property values continue to rise with gulf access, no bridge or one bridge properties soaring in value. Home site lots in Tarpon Point, Cape Coral’s premier community, are listed as high as the $1,000,000 range. Tarpon Point Landings includes spectacular views.

Cape Coral still has its 400 miles of canals, the Caloosahatchee River, Gulf of Mexico, proximity to Naples, Fl and Fort Myers, Fl and desirable Southwest Florida climate to attract those seeking to purchase a piece of paradise at huge discounts when compared to a few short years ago.

The recent announcement that Hertz will accelerate moving its corporate headquarters to Southwest Florida will only add to the number of buyers. The car rental giant will lease space in Naples beginning in August of 2013 while their $60 million dollar, 300,000 square foot facility located in Estero is under construction. The building is scheduled for completion in early 2015.

Look at these numbers representing new home building permits from 2008 through June of each year. The trend is unmistakable.

  • 2008 – 126
  • 2009 – 75
  • 2010 – 125
  • 2011 – 131
  • 2012 – 182
  • 2013 – 235

In my opinion, the real estate crash of 2007-2009 is a distant bad memory.  No matter which article you read or key matrix you refer to, the news is positive. The only question is how long interest rates will remain low. They have recently started to creep upwards. ‘

Cape Coral Fl New Home Permits In 2012

The new home building permit data compiled by the City of Cape Coral for 2012 contains more of the same good news for the real estate market in the city. For the third consecutive year, since this key matrix bottomed in 2009, the number of new home building permits issued increased when compared to the previous year. The final year tallies for new home building permits increased by 71 to 339 in 2012 vs the 2011 total of 268 or about 26.50%. Cape Coral Fl has not experienced that level of new building activity since 2007. (Click the chart below to enlarge)

Cape Coral House For Sale

Cape Coral Building Permits 2008 – 2012

The Sandoval Community development continued to drive the new home permit data for Cape Coral real estate. The amenity rich community accounted for 96 of the 339 permits for new homes issued in 2012. Normally, any one development accounting for 28% of a cities permit total would have the developers jumping for joy. In prior years, Sandoval accounted for almost 50% of the total permits for Cape Coral. There are a few reasons for the percentage decline. First, Sandoval was a victim of its own popularity. Phase II almost sold out by August, months before Phase III’s Grand Opening scheduled for January 26th & 27th of 2013. Only 3 permits were issued in Sandoval for November and December.

Taylor Morrison had four models built and ready to show to anxious consumers for its Grand Opening. Construction of new homes in Phase III is expected to begin in February 2013 . You can learn all about the floors plans being offered in Phase III  by clicking here.

The other reason for Sandoval’s percentage to the total being down is because of building taking place in the Northwest portions of Cape Coral. New construction since 2007 has been almost totally confined to the Southwest quadrant of the city. In 2011 only nineteen permits with a NW property address were issued. In 2012 the number has almost doubled to thirty-four! While that isn’t a big number, it represents the best total in five years! Who can argue with that type of year over year percentage increase?

Cape Coral Florida property values are rising again. Gulf Access, no bridge property values are soaring. It was only a year ago that real estate lots, south of Beach Parkway, west of Sands Blvd and along El Dorado were listed at prices under $200,000. Now lots under $300,000 in that same area are rare. Estate lots in Tarpon Point, Cape Coral’s premier community, are listed in the $1,000,000 range.

Buyers are returning according to the data. Why not? Cape Coral still has its 400 miles of canals, the Caloosahatchee River, Gulf of Mexico, proximity to Naples, Fl and Fort Myers, Fl and desirable Southwest Florida climate to attract those seeking to purchase a piece of paradise at about a 40% discount when compared to a few short years ago.

Look at these numbers representing new home building permits since 2008. The trend is unmistakable.
2008 – 209
2009 – 180
2010 – 215
2011 – 268
2012 – 339

“We appear to be well on our way out of the real estate crash”, said Michael Rogala a Realtor® who specializes in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, Florida properties, “I’m encouraged by the building now taking place in Cape Coral, Fl. Gulf access, no-bridge lots on the spreader are selling again. Several have sold for over $300,000 in the last few months.” Visit Mike’s website at http://www.capecoralhouseforsale.com for more information on his eight featured amenity rich communities, including Sandoval & Tarpon Point, plus prestigious waterfront homes and properties.

Cape Coral Fl New Home Permits January – August 2012

The new home building permit data compiled by the City of Cape Coral through August 2012 contains more good news for the real estate market in the city. For the third consecutive year, since this key matrix bottomed in 2009, the number of new home building permits issued will increase when compared to the previous year.
