Sanibel & Captiva Real Estate For Sale
For those who have the ability to purchase on Sanibel or Captiva, it is largely regarded as the most desirable address in the area, & is a destination visited by vacationers from across the globe. Much of it has been left in itís natural setting and you wonít encounter a single traffic light or high rise on Sanibel. Everything is at Ďvacation speedí out here, & itís a world apart from the mainland. Visitors will encounter numerous native birds and hundreds of varieties of shells scattered along the beaches. In fact, Sanibelís beaches are considered amongst the top 10 in the Florida. Feel free to view the areaís current listings via the search options below. ...overview continued here

Feel free to view the areaís available listings via the search options on this page, but do note that given the extreme desirability of the area, to restrict the listings to only gulf access is going to cost a hefty amount for single family homes (even more on Captiva, which contains some of the most valuable homes in Florida). In fact, the average single family home price on Sanibel exceeds $1 million dollars (not even exclusive to having waterfront) and over $1.8 million on Captiva), but Iíve seen a number of good deals come along at half those figures before (even less on condos) so donít be discouraged by those numbers if you have reasonable expectations.
As an alternative: You may also review non-gulf access here and consider keeping a boat in a nearby marina as a more affordable option. And because a number of homes are a bit older, be sure to keep the year of construction a bit more flexible for lower priced results.
Those looking for beachfront should view the non-gulf access section instead as well. Also please note that Upper Captiva has no road access and is accessible only via boat (including the ferryboat from Pine Island) or by plane via a small landing strip. The type of gulf access will vary amongst the listings so be sure to read the descriptions carefully.

A b o u t m e :
My name is Dan Starowicz and I am a Realtor with Sand Castle Realty. I have four area offices to better serve my clients, located in Fort Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs and Cape Coral. I specialize in waterfront property (including foreclosures and short sales). As a local resident for the past 25+ years, I can safely say that I know this area quite well and bring my expertise to every transaction. I also enjoy my share of boating in this region, so I can safely advise clients as to the proís and conís of different area waterways, from a boaters perspective.
In addition to being a Realtor, I have a background with years of experience in the mortgage business and as a hands-on Real Estate Investor too. Iíve personally bought bank owned property, imminent foreclosures, short-sale property, auctioned properties and estate sale homes. I am experienced in handling transactions involving 1031 exchanges, estate sales, trusts, self directed IRA purchases, foreclosures, short sales and many others too.
This particular website is one in which Iíve personally designed myself in an effort to give the public the best possible source to learn about the area and to have the most comprehensive information and real time search capabilities as possible. It may not have the prettiest pictures or the flashiest format, but the substance should all be superior. Because I assemble this site bit by bit in my spare time, you might run into the occasional error. If you come across anything notable, Iíd sure appreciate if you could point it out to me, that way I can correct it and everyone benefits from it. As far as other sites go: Itís my opinion far too many use the same cookie-cutter formats, which donít do you any real good. They may also leave up old information to generate inquiries from interested buyers. That is not the case here! I want to empower the public to make intelligent, well informed decisions. Hopefully when you are ready to conduct business, you will consider me for the job. And of course Iím here to answer any questions you may have. Thank you. Dan Starowicz. Sand Castle Realty. 239-603-6100.
