“SOUPY SALES” MARKET IN PUNTA GORDA, FLORIDA – WHO’S GETTING THE BEST PIECE OF THE PIE TODAY – BUYERS OR SELLERS?

 

Comedian Soupy Sales made a pretty good career out of getting hit with a Pie in the Face nearly every day.  Why do I bring that up in a real estate update?  For two reasons…

Our market today could accurately be defined as simmering “soup” in a cauldron pot.  As we enter August 2010 we are at the stage of cooking where someone sarcastically says, “Staring at the pot doesn’t make it boil any faster. Just let it happen.”  They are of course correct. . The good news is, shortly thereafter it starts bubbling and boiling and all the ingredients thrown into the pot come together and cook!  If you start out with the best soup stock you can…the end result is usually very good!  Punta Gorda is the Paradise of soup stock!   

Everyone wants the biggest piece of the pie for dessert afterward!  None of us, however, (except for good old Soupy perhaps) wants to end up being hit with a pie in the face! We always want that to happen to “the other guy”.  So…we go back to the initial question.  Who gets the best piece of the pie today here in Punta Gorda, Florida…It is undoubtedly the buyer!  This is without a doubt after analyzing all of the ingredients that are in this soup cauldron – the very best time to buy here!  That’s not bad news for Sellers either.  It means there will be buyers!  Buyers who wait could well be the one with the pie in the face.  Sellers who sell now…it depends upon how receptive you are to pie…whipped cream isn’t all that bad if the end result was a sale you needed to make!

Here’s the thing…You never know with soup…will it turn out really good or perhaps need a little more salt?  Do you let it cool down a bit first before taking that first delicious slurping swallow, or do you take advantage of it while it’s good and warm!   Experience shows, letting it cool down a bit is what the average person does.  The astute soup eater dives right in and takes that sip while its warm for its maximum benefit!

 Buyers…this is the time to slurp up the delicious bargains that are out there.

Why act now?  Because it is currently at its peak taste and temperature!  As everyone knows, as the cauldron bowl starts emptying, a good soup gets more valuable as the amount of it diminishes.  Look at the available inventory below…Anyone for pie?

  2. I apologize if you are having trouble finding properties. There are actually 3 different places on the home page to find properties. “Start a Search”…”Featured Homes”…and “My website” Were they not working for you? What was the difficulty you had?
