Newer homes may have living areas up to 9,000 square feet but most homes range in size from 1,000 to over 8,000 square feet. Buyers purchase in Royal Harbor because it provides them with access to the downtown area and the beaches and allows for bridge-free Gulf access by boat.

Locals enjoy some of the best sport fishing and cruising waters anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico here.

 Homes in Royal Harbor are located on Naples Bay canals that lead by means of Gordon Pass to the Gulf within just a few minutes. Boaters are close to the famous 10,000 islands, a favorite haven for fishing enthusiasts. The deep water canals can accommodate larger boats that are up to thirty (30) ft. in size. The community is also popular with buyers who are looking for a prime waterfront location that may provide a less costly alternative than many other Naples homes on deep water, as properties can range from less than $900,000 to over $6Million. Many buyers have found the area to provide them with excellent value as they enjoy boating, proximity to Naples attractions and convenient beach access within minutes. Residents can apply for a Beach Pass and park without cost in the many areas found.

The condos in Royal Harbor are located in Harbor Lakes, Sandpiper Bay Club, Royal Bay Villas and Casa Granada. They were built during the 1970s while single-family homes began construction during the late 1950s. Many buyers are purchasing these units and totally renovating- updating units to taste.

Buyer Broker Agereement 2024

Buyer Broker Agency Agreement 2024

Real estate commission UPDATE 2024:

Buyer Broker Agreement Naples FL real estate for sale.

Commissions have always been negotiable and are not set by law. Sellers retain the discretion to offer compensation to buyer’s brokers. However, this compensation is no longer allowed to be advertised on local MLS. The proposed US GOV. settlement would also require that every buyer represented by an agent sign a Buyer Representation Agreement outlining the relationship between the buyer and broker before touring a property, something that is already required in many states for over a decade. We provide a Buyer Consultation meeting so that buyers can review our credentials and decide if they would like us to assist and represent them here in Florida as their agent to purchase property.

Naples FL real estate for sale, Buyer Broker Agreement.

We cover our experience, training, continuing education, agency duties and communication commitment with our clients. Most buyer clients understand and realize the importance of representation in a transaction that may be their largest financial investment.

We look forward to hearing from our buyer-users on our websites and lead generation marketing online. Please contact us at your convenience to schedule a time to discuss YOUR real estate needs here in Florida. The NEW agency law will most likely take effect in August 2024, until then sellers are still paying both commission sides (buyer agent and seller agent) at closing in 2024.
