It has been another week of blue skies and sunshine which definitely makes one thankful to be here, rather than amid overcast days with ice/snow. Roadways are busy with more contractor vehicles, as debris removal trucks now are picking up the remainder of what was put curbside by Mar 1 (which was the cut-off date).
There was no City progress update this week, but the big news on Tues, 2/28, five months after Hurricane Ian, was the relighting of the Sanibel Lighthouse. It was announced late Mon on social media that it would occur at 6 a.m. the next morning. Amazing how many people were there to witness and film it. Lots of videos are posted on social media. The new LED light is bright!
The next official City update will be during the upcoming City Council meeting on Tues 3/7 at BIG ARTS Performance Hall. Meeting begins at 9 a.m.
I also got a little island scoop while in line to pick-up mail yesterday. A proud guy from Island Beach Club said that they will have the first elevator to be operational since the storm. It is expected to be today, with another elevator there to follow shortly after. Like many gulf-front complexes, that complex had some serious damage, but are now seeing recovery results from adjusters, insurance, contractors, etc.
Sanibel & Captiva Islands Assoc of Realtors
The Association of Realtors© also didn’t meet this week, but there was plenty of real estate action posted it the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Multiple Listing Service. That info and the activity with our listings are after the inventory summary below.
Because what is happening at condo communities is different, our Association Multiple Listing Service (MLS) added a new resource for Realtor use. As agents get listings and receive info about what damage insurance is covering, progress schedules, changes in fees, special assessments, etc., they can be entered into this new condo database that is shared with our members.
Our MLS also added a new “yes”/”no” field regarding if a unit owner has flood insurance. In many cases these policies are assumable which helps a new buyer.
On the commercial front, following last week’s announcement that the parcel where Sandbar Restaurant site is for sale, this week the sale of the shopping center at the San-Cap end of Rabbit Road was posted. Buyer was Rosalita’s Cantina (for $6M). Their Facebook page says they opened yesterday, serving “classic Mexican dishes and more modern specialties”. Hours: Mon-Thur 11 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.; Fri & Sat 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sat 10 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. & Sun brunch 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
