Marco Island Real Estate For Sale
Marco Island is an exceptional combination of great boating and pristine beaches in one desirable location. For those looking for waterfront properties with the boat right in the backyard, Marco Island certainly fits the bill. In fact, the majority of properties here are either direct beachfront, or on a gulf access canal. Also, the avid fisherman is certain to appreciate the numerous fishing opportunities in the neighboring 10,000 islands. This island location provides you with sparkling blue waters, a notable shade prettier than some of the cities a bit further North. This does however come at a higher pricing point than similar properties in Cape Coral. ...continued below

Think of Marco Island as a relaxing place to get away from it all. This of course means that it is a rather seasonal place, with winter visitors flocking to the island, when the temperatures drop to the North. Marco is indeed a bit removed from Ďtowní but the drive to Naples shopping, dining, and golf courses is under a half hour. Properties on the island average around $800,000, but plenty of lower priced options exist as well.
Fort Myersís airport (RSW) is your closest large airport, though Fort Lauderdale and Miamiís airports are valid options as well.
Note that a high speed water taxi service (Key West Express) provides trips back and forth to Key West from Marco Island. Given the fact that Marco is the last developed section on the West Coast of Florida, this puts it reasonably close to the keys. Great for popping in on Duval Street for a day, but then returning to the relaxed pace that Marco Island offers itís residents thereafter.
A few items to note when searching in Marco Island: this site will easily display all the active listings on the island and itís constantly updated. You can also do customized searches here, much like in the Fort Myers / Cape Coral coverage areas, for example specifying gulf access listings only, minimum square footage requirements, etc. However, there is a couple limitations, due to it falling into a different MLS coverage area. For example, in Fort Myers / Cape Coral this site can easily display foreclosures, short sales, and sailboat access listings, as well as allow for very complex customized searches, specifying numerous criteria such as specific # of stories tall, specific years of construction, etc. In the Naples coverage area though (which includes Marco Island), the system works differently and I cannot display results quite as easily, or offer quite as complex search parameters (though still quite decent). There is however a very good solution, an additional free service called Listingbook.
With Listingbook you can easily specify and view foreclosures only, short sales only, and/or sailboat access properties only, if that is what you are after. For this reason, In locations on this page where you would ordinarily click to view, for example, foreclosures only, it will redirect you instead to a spot to quickly access the Listingbook service. You can also sign up for free Naples Listingbook access at this link.
Please note that there is a difference between the Listingbook service in the Greater Fort Myers / Cape Coral area and the one in the Naples/Marco Island area . Though they look identical, they do not contain the same info (since they are pulling most of their data from separate Realtor MLS systems). So if you already have a Fort Myers/Cape Coral Listingbook account, and wish to access Naples/Marco info, you would want to request the separate Naples account.
One other item: If you happen to be doing a customized search for properties in Marco or Naples, please note: you will want to make sure youíve specified the Naples MLS system, not the Fort Myers MLS. You will have the option at the top of the screen on the customized search page to choose which one you want to search, so just be sure Naples is selected. In most cases the system will automatically be on Naples, but I want to make mention of it to avoid any confusion. (If the Fort Myers MLS is incorrectly selected a percentage of Marco listings are visible... but not all of them! So just be sure to specify Naples MLS).

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 Naples, Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and Fort Myers. 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.
