Time to “Fall Back” to Temperatures Under the 80’s

Today is one of those rare cloudy rain days on otherwise sunny Sanibel. Forecasters say that rain bands are bringing a cold front. I can attest to that, as my car showed a temperature drop from 83 degrees F to 73 degrees F in the few minutes that it took me to drive home from the office last night. Clearing is expected tomorrow with weekend temperatures to remain in the low 70’s and below. By early next week, it will be back to sunny and warmer.

At SanibelSusan Realty, it has been busy this week. After our Mariner Pointe condo listing was open for Realtor® Caravan last week, we got two offers, then yesterday, we had our new listing at Sealoft Village open for Caravan. The action since last Friday posted in the Sanibel & Captiva Multiple Listing Service follows a couple of news items below.

First, another good article by my favorite economist, Lawrence Yun. It came from the Fall 2021 “Realtor®” magazine. What he says is in-line with what I hear from clients across the country where renters now also are in multiple offer situations and bidding wars.

Serious Squeeze on Renters

“U.S. needs to put attention on rental, first-time buyer markets.

“Just as the for-sale market is starting to moderate, the rental market is heating up, which will put added pressure on people trying to save for their first home. Rental listings are attracting multiple offers, and apartment vacancy rates are approaching record lows. Consequently, rents are set to soar.

“The reason is twofold. First, the jobs market is improving. Despite a disappointing August employment report, 85% of the 21 million jobs slashed during the first month of the pandemic lockdown have been recovered. Job openings have reached an all-time high of 10 million, and those who might have been sleeping in the basement of their parents’ house are emerging in search of housing.

“The second reason for strong rental demand is that many potential first-time buyers are priced out. The median existing-home sales price was up 25% year-over-year in June, though this is partly because high-end sales are up. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index, a constant quality home price index, was up 18% over the same period. The gain has been a boon for owners but is causing serious anxiety for nonowners. Even near-record-low interest rates can’t compensate. It’s no surprise, then, that the number of mortgage applications to buy a home has been falling, along with the share of sales to first-time home buyers.

“Mortgage rates may further squeeze renters next year. The Federal Reserve will soon slow the pace of buying mortgage-backed securities and will certainly raise its benchmark interest rate next year, which may drive rates up to near 4% by the end of 2022. One bit of good news: Fannie Mae will soon consider rental payment history in qualifying borrowers. That will enlarge the pool of eligible buyers. But to ensure that housing costs remain manageable, America needs more homes, both for ownership and for rent. New construction alone won’t fill the need. Rehabbing dilapidated homes and repurposing commercial buildings into residential units – is essential. There is a massive housing shortage. All hands must be on deck to get the supply up.”

Veterans Day – Fee-Free on Wildlife Drive

In observance of Veterans Day, “Ding” Darling will waive entrance fees to Wildlife Dr on Thursday, Nov 11. Motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians all enter free-of-charge that day from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Check out the new entrance sign to “Ding” Darling too. It features those favored Roseate Spoonbills.

More Restaurant News

As a foodie, it’s always good to get the correct scoop on what’s happening on Sanibel. Here’s the article posted Nov 1 on “Gulfshore Business” by David Dorsey:

“Iconic Sanibel Restaurant, Matzaluna Closing, Rebranding Under New Ownership

“Two restaurant owners who are in different stages of their lives are connected as one expands and the other contracts their offerings on Sanibel Island. Matzaluna, an iconic restaurant on Sanibel Island, will be closing mid-November, ending a 27-year run.

“Local legendary restaurant owner Matt Asen is looking to downsize. And, a younger couple, Jeramie Campana and his wife, Debra Campana, transplanted from Chicago, is looking to boost its offerings of Sanibel restaurants.

”Asen, 69, has been feeding islands and tourists at the Timbers for 43 years. He also owns the Sanibel Grill and the Prawnbroker and the University Grill in Fort Myers. He opened Matzaluna at 1200 Periwinkle Way in 1994.

“Photographs of Asen with hundreds of celebrities adorn the walls at the Timbers. They range from presidents George W. and George H.W. Bush to basketball stars like Larry Bird and Reggie Miller to musicians, like Asen’s look-a-like, former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar.

“Asen will continue co-owning the Matzaluna building and property with three business partners while leasing it for the new concept.

“Retaining restaurant workers, supply-chain issues and aging and health issues combined for Asen to take a step back.

“Jeramie Campana plans to open an Italian-themed restaurant in the space currently occupied by iconic Sanibel restaurant Matzaluna, which will close after 27 years in mid-November.

““We had 27 years which in dog years is like 249, and restaurant years, it’s like a million,” Asen says. “At 27 years at Matzaluna, it’s successful. We’re going to get out while we’re still making money. And enjoy life a little more. I don’t want to be the richest man in the cemetery.”

Asen had spinal fusion surgery seven months ago. He’s back to walking without a cane. But at age 69, and his three partners ages 69, 76, and 79, Asen said the time was right. “It’s sort of sad,” Asen says. “But it’s time to move on and enjoy more than I do, and I enjoy life very much.”

“Asen said he was happy to lease the building to the Campanas, who grew up visiting Sanibel Island with her parents, who owned a timeshare. In 2017, they sold their catering business in the northern suburbs of Chicago and moved to Sanibel.

“It sort of reminds me when we were younger and full of energy and great hopes,” Asen said.

“The Campanas opened their first Sanibel restaurant, the Paper Fig Kitchen, in 2018 at 2003 Periwinkle Way. Since then, they have added 400 Rabbits, a Mexican-themed restaurant that opened last New Year’s Eve at 975 Rabbit Rd.

“Over the weekend, the Campanas opened Fig East End, a deli and convenience store at 359 Periwinkle Way. It has been an abandoned deli, and it’s the only place near the lighthouse and the east end of the island for beachgoers to buy ice.

“The former East End Deli,” Jeramie Campana says, “it’s been closed for a number of years now. We are revamping it. We opened two days ago. We’re bringing some stuff back to the east end that’s desperately needed.”

“Up next: Bamboo, a Pan-Asian-themed restaurant that will be at the former Il Tesoro location at 751 Tarpon Bay Road. It will be the only Asian-themed restaurant on the island. After that, the Campanas can turn their attention to the reopening Matzaluna under a new name yet to be revealed

“It will stay Italian,” Campana says. “It will stay family friendly, it will be place where locals can come and hang out around the bar, meet new people, meet locals and meet tourists. It really is a great spot continuing on that Matzaluna tradition for great Italian food for the island.”

“Campana has plans to revamp and upgrade the pizza offerings there. He and a business partner traveled to Chicago and met with some Italian pizza gurus. “We learned the proper way to do wood-fired pizzas,” Campana says. “Eventually, we’re going to offer Chicago-style pizzas as well. We’re going to make our own dough.”

“There wasn’t much of a debate in changing the Matzaluna name, Campana said. “Change it,” he says. “We need to make it our own. We’re just taking advantage of those opportunities.”

(Note: I confirmed yesterday with Jeramie Campana that it will be called Tutti Pazzi Italian Kitchen, expected to open sometime in January.)

Sanibel’s White Pelicans, Warm Weather, Special Shells, Real Estate, & Veterans

Happy Friday, FB friends. It was another busy week at SanibelSusan Realty with more listing inquiries, more showings, more open houses, more follow-up on upcoming closings, a nice new listing, and another in the works. As the November snowbirds started arriving, there was a noticeable boost in local traffic too. Speaking of birds, the white pelicans are back! Hundreds have been photographed on-island this week – many in the waters of the J.N. “Ding” Darling Wildlife Refuge and Clam Bayou. Those are always an indication of a change in the seasons.

There also was a little drop in temperatures with daytimes now in the 80’s. The forecast for the end of next week has even cooler daytime weather coming. Cooler here, meaning in the 70’s – perfect weather for shoveling beach sand and shells. With good shelling reports including two junonias pictured in today’s “Island Sun”, it is a great time to be in Florida.

Below are a couple of news items, followed by the action posted this week in the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Multiple Listing Service. Not many new sales were announced at our East-end Realtor Caravan meeting yesterday, but business is picking up.

At the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors®, the Christmas tree is up in preparation for our annual “Fall Into Christmas” fundraiser for Friends Who Care which is next Thursday after work. Our members will be donating toys and gift cards for those in need. The Association’s food drive for the F.I.S.H. San-Cap food pantry also is underway and continues until the end of the year.

Protecting Florida Together

For those near and far, following Florida’s water quality reports is challenging. There are many on-line postings, particularly on social media, that are outdated and inaccurate. On Tuesday, during a conference at Lovers Key State Park on Fort Myers Beach, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced the creation of a new website that focuses on state water quality. The website, called Protecting Florida Together, allows members of the public to check water quality status in three bodies of water: the Caloosahatchee River, Lake Okeechobee and the St. Lucie River. The Governor said that by next year, users also will be able to get info on water in other bodies of water in Florida. With 66 million state visitors during the first half of this year, the website is meant to get meaningful information out to Floridians, their families, and those coming here. The site also offers ways users can volunteer to help improve water quality. There also is a timeline of action the state has taken to improve water quality.

Sanibel to Install Red Tide Signs

In another effort to combat misinformation, James Evans, Sanibel’s Director of Natural Resources announced at Tuesday’s City Council meeting that the City is getting ready to install signs on island public beaches. The signage will include red tide info with a description of where there is a red tide bloom, what health symptoms are associated with red tide, and websites/phone numbers to get additional info (via the Florida Dept of Health website). The signs also will have an explanation of the differences between a red tide caution and an alert. Evans described the current red tide status as a “patchy bloom” and that “It’s all about being transparent, but it’s also about providing correct information.”

Who’s Buying Rental Vacation Property?

From the Nov/Dec 2019 issue of “Florida Realtor”: “Some 75% of prospective vacation rental buyers have a combined family income of less than $150,000 per year. Over a quarter of prospective vacation rental buyers are in their 20’s and 30’s. This new generation of investors is looking to cash in on the sharing economy-driven vacation rental boom.” Source – Vacasa 2019 Vacation Rental Buyers Profile (FYI, with 5,000+ employees, Vacasa managers 23,000+vacation properties in 17 countries.)

Closing Checklist for Sellers

Good scoop here from homelight.com, the balance.com, Florida Realtors:

“You may already have gathered all the paperwork you need for closing day, but there are a few other tasks to handle before you get to the closing table.

  • Clean the entire house, including inside drawers & cabinets.
  • Close utility accounts & have them shut off or transfer accounts on the day of closing.
  • Place all keys (house, mailbox, pool, etc.), garage remotes, alarm & gate codes, etc. in one place, such as a drawer closest to the refrigerator.
  • Create a packet of appliance manuals, service contracts, written warranties, etc. & place them in the same drawer.
  • Visit usps.com/manage/forward.htm to direct the post office to forward your mail. Also, consider leaving a large stamped envelope that’s addressed to your new home so the buyers can forward any important mail that ends up at your former home.
  • Cancel newspaper subscriptions, if any.
  • Do a final sweep of every drawer, cabinet, & surface to make sure you haven’t left anything behind.
  • Lock up the house, turn off the lights, & close the blinds on the way out.
  • Make a note to cancel homeowner’s insurance after the closing is complete & the title has been transferred or the deed recorded.”

Enjoy your weekend & don’t forget to honor Veterans on Monday (& every day). If you are on-island, keep an eye out for one of these shells. Painted by Amy Cloud & posted on “Sanibel Shells” Facebook page, Amy created these in honor of her Dad who is a WWII veteran & celebrating his 97th birthday. She said the Sanibel Shell fairies will be sprinkling them here. To all veterans, thank you for your service, & a special birthday thank you to Amy’s Dad. Also thanks to Amy for sharing her photo!

Woohoo…Sanibel/Captiva Island Real Estate Activity Has Picked Up!

dolphins-with-baby

It has been another busy real estate week on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Several SanibelSusan Realty listings had excellent showings and we also had several good meetings with owners considering selling. One new listing is effective this week and another will be posted in a few days, and another a few days after that. I was out showing to several parties, several times, while Teammates David and Lisa also were showing yesterday. It’s great to see almost as much action as the November dolphins jumping in the above photo. (Note the Mama with baby on the right.)

Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors®

Sanibel realtors logoYesterday’s Realtor® Caravan Meeting was not as well attended as last week, but the National Association of Realtors annual convention, being held in Orlando this year, may have something to do with that.

This wek the Sanibel/Captiva Caravan of new listings was for West End properties. Next week, when it rotates to East End, we will have two new listings open (from 9 a.m. until noon).

The activity posted since last Friday in the Sanibel & Captiva Multiple Listing Service follows a couple of news items below.

Interest Rates Stay Put, But Door Open For December Hike

Florida Realtors logoYesterday, FloridaRealtors® on-line posted the following:

“The Federal Reserve held its key interest rate steady Wednesday and left the door open to a December rate hike amid an improving economy. In a statement after a two-day meeting, the Fed said it decided to keep its federal funds rate at a historically low 0.4%.

2000px-US-FederalReserveBoard-Seal.svg“The Fed said “the case for a rate increase strengthened,” but policymakers decided, “for the time being, to wait for some further evidence of continued progress toward its objectives.” That largely mirrored the September statement, except the Fed added that only “some” advances are needed, suggesting a rate hike may be at hand. The statement added that “inflation has increased somewhat since earlier this year” and removed its previous assertion that “inflation is expected to remain low in the near term.”

“The Fed’s preferred measure of annual inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, is still below its 2% annual target, but it has edged up steadily this year, reaching 1.7% recently. That could pave the way for a rate hike as soon as December.

“Stocks, already on pace for a seventh day of losses, fell further after the statement but shortly began staging a recovery. Some economists said the Fed was unlikely to send an explicit signal of a December rate increase similar to a reference in October 2015 to a possible hike at the “next meeting.”

With markets already pricing in an increase anyway, Fed officials would prefer not to close off their options, economists said. “Absent substantial shocks, they’re set on December,” says UBS economist Drew Matus.

“Among potential shocks are a contested presidential election next week or a victory by Republican Donald Trump that roils markets, economist Paul Ashworth of Capital Economics says.

“After Wednesday’s statement was released, fed fund futures reckoned there was a 72% chance the Fed will lift its benchmark rate at a Dec. 13-14 meeting, up from 68% a day earlier.

“It was unlikely the Fed would act just days before the election, potentially disrupting markets and coloring perceptions of the economy and presidential candidates Trump and Hillary Clinton.

USATodayLOGO“The Fed has stood pat since raising its federal funds rate in December for the first time in nine years, citing factors such as China’s economic slowdown, the United Kingdom’s Brexit vote, volatile markets and a spring slump in U.S. job growth.” Copyright © 2016, USATODAY.com, USA TODAY, Paul Davidson
