Genova, the new gated, resort-lifestyle condominium community in Estero, finds itself perfectly positioned in the area’s hot real estate market.
According to the Bonita Springs-Estero REALTORS® (BER), in July 2020, pending sales increased by over 60 percent compared to July 2019. Realtor.com also reported 18.5 million property search result page reviews in the area, a 3 percent increase over June 2019.
Additionally, BER stated in a press release that increased interest in the Bonita Springs/Estero area has included a surge of buyers from the Northeast and Midwest regions of the country who are looking to make the area either their permanent or part-time home, and for good reason.
“Southwest Florida is known for its beauty, beaches and year-round gorgeous weather,” said John Debitetto, Sales Associate at Genova. “After being quarantined inside for months on end, Northerners are prepared and looking to leave the frigid winters for what feels like a never-ending vacation.”
In fact, the Lee County Port Authority Department of Communications and Marketing reported that July 2020 flights into the Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) increased by 8 percent from June 2020, which was already up 66 percent from May 2020.
These statistics culminate to create strong demand for Bonita Springs and Estero homes with limited inventory on the market. With Genova’s premier location and move-in ready homes available, this puts Genova in the middle of a real estate hotspot.
Located conveniently in Estero, the community finds itself positioned perfectly between Naples, Bonita Springs and Fort Myers. Buyers quickly recognize that Genova’s superior location will give them easy access to all Southwest Florida has to offer.
Genova is just minutes from sugar sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the many shopping and dining options at Coconut Point, has convenient airport access and is surrounded by quality healthcare, education, recreation and more. Here, residents have access to everything locals and tourists alike love about Southwest Florida without the bustle of some of the area’s bigger cities.
Each floor plan at Genova allows for modifications that potential buyers commonly seek. These include converting bedrooms to dens, adding a double shower to the master bathroom, a multitude of finish options for the flooring, cabinetry and counters, combining rooms to make for larger great rooms and adding coffered ceilings and wall niches, which adds architectural interest and additional detail.
“Our buyers are always very excited to hear our floor plans and residences can truly be made their own through the endless upgrade options we offer,” continued Debitetto. “It affords them the ability to really showcase their individual personalities.”
Prospective buyers can witness firsthand the many design options and upgrades in Genova’s recently completed model located in Building D.
The new model, which is the Spinola floor plan, is a two-bedroom/two-bath plan with 1,476 square feet under air and 2,336 total square feet. Priced from $389,000, the Spinola features a large great room, expansive outdoor living area, gourmet island kitchen and private master guest suite.
Like every Genova residence, the new model in Building D has a private, two-car garage with an 18-foot door and opener. Guest parking can also be found in the under-building garages.
Due to the increase in interest at Genova, the community has reopened its Sales Center and announced its grand reopening incentive.
For a limited time, buyers can receive $10,000 to $35,000 off options depending on the residence purchased.
The incredible list of amenities at Genova begins with the private club which features an Italian Riviera-style clubhouse with an expansive community room equipped with a large-screen TV, lounge seating and a hospitality prep kitchen, ideal for hosting private events.
There’s also a beach-edge, resort-pool outside that overlooks one of the community’s lakes, a lakeside sundeck that overlooks Genova’s water features and a covered 25-meter lap pool, perfect for year-round swimming.
The fitness center, which hosts clinics and private sessions, is a state-of-the-art facility. Adjacent to that is the aerobics studio for exercise, Zumba and dance. Locker rooms with showers, as well as a sauna and massage room are also a part of the amenity package.
And finally, close to the front entrance of the clubhouse, are two regulation bocce courts.
Between the amenities within the community and those additional amenities right outside the gates, Genova truly is a fun place to live and play.
Private appointments remain available and can be scheduled by calling ahead. Potential buyers can visit the Sales Center and tour the new model in Building D, as well as the other luxury models at Genova Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
Now that the state has begun to reopen and businesses can safely welcome guests back again, Genova encourages those who are interested in the community to visit and see Genova and its amenities firsthand.
