FORT MEYERS, FLA./ APRIL 24, 2019 (STL.News)
Engel & Völkers today announced that their residential real estate brokerage, Engel & Völkers Cape Coral has broken the record for the most expensive residential sale in North Fort Myers. Real Estate Advisor, Zaynab Bakir represented the seller in the $2,620,000 deal of 12604 Panasoffkee Dr. The record, previously held by 12590 Treeline Ct, has been unmatched since March 2007.
“I have never seen a property like 112604 Panasoffkee Dr,” said Bakir. “It is truly one-of-a-kind, and like any rare jewel, the price reflects the value.”
This is a significant development for the market as the previous record sale took place just shortly before the bursting of the U.S. housing bubble that triggered the Great Recession. Over the last ten years, home appreciation rates have been 4.67-percent.
“This record-breaking sale clearly indicates that discerning buyers are taking our market seriously and finding value in their investments,” said Bakir.
There are distinguishable differences between the two properties including: 3,194 additional square feet, 17 years newer, two more bathrooms and 0.98 less acreage at 12604 Panasoffkee Dr. Nestled in the gated community of Buttonwood Harbor, the home features impressive attributes like a private beach, expansive terraces that offer city and river views, home theatre, lavish elevator with customized wood inlay and Bellagio-style water fountains.
According to Zillow, the median price of homes currently listed in North Fort Myers is $203,750, while the median price of homes that sold is $187,700. North Fort Myers home values have gone up 2.2-percent over the past year and Zillow predicts they will rise another 1.7 percent within the next year. While the median list price per square foot in North Fort Myers is $134, 12604 Panasoffkee Dr was listed at about $345 per square foot.
Engel & Völkers Cape Coral was established in February 2007 by License Partner Thomas Hopf and in October 2014, Broker Nadja Eisenkeck joined as co-owner.
“We are extremely proud to broker this record-breaking transaction and to have Zaynab on our team,” said Eisenkeck. “In terms of commitment, energy and skill, Zaynab sets the bar high for her peers and goes above and beyond for her clients.”
