What is Marco Island like in the summer? Stellar sunsets like this one are just the beginning! Many of our island’s winter visitors have never ventured here in the summer and off-season months. Maybe we shouldn’t reveal the secret that in many ways, Marco Island is even better in the summer!
In addition to less visitors on our beaches, summer on Marco also means it’s easier to get a table at one of our fabulous restaurants, more lounge chairs by the pool, extra room on our sidewalks for biking and walking, and less boats on the water.
We also have the nesting season for many birds, our beloved sea turtles, and burrowing owls in summer as well. There are warmer gulf temperatures and easy tee times on the links! You can even see manatees while snorkeling around the island! There are so many reasons to experience Marco Island in summer, and luckily, as least for the past several years, our real estate market remains strong, and in some case even grows stronger during the summer.
One thing is for sure when it comes to summer, if one of our island’s properties is priced correctly, it’s sure to be snapped up right away! Some of the stats that back this up are as follows…
In May 2017
- Vacant lot sales are up an astounding 266%!!
- Single family home sales are up 10% over last year and 23% overall since last year for the same time frame.
- The median sale price for lots, homes, and condos all increased as well.
If you haven’t considered visiting us in the ‘off-season,’ this should be the year you take the plunge! Come experience the island’s brilliance in the summer! We have a gorgeous selection of vacant lots available at this time, but they won’t last long. As you know, vacant lots are getting scarce, escalating demand and driving prices up.
