Fort Myers Real Estate

For those thinking of buying real estate in beautiful Southwest Florida, there are an abundance of realtors and developers to help you find or build the place of your dreams! Whether your plans are for living in the area seasonally, or making Southwest Florida your permanent address, the choice of properties available is vast. From magnificent waterfront homes, high rise condos, and upscale gated communities to less expensive single family homes, there are options in a variety of price-points. You can also choose to buy an existing home, a pre-construction house, or purchase land to have your custom home created. 

In addition to retirees, many young families choose to relocate to Southwest Florida. The climate, proximity to beaches, and laid-back lifestyle are all factors that have attracted people to make the move to the Fort Myers area. Many people in a financial position to purchase a second home choose to purchase real estate in Southwest Florida, since it is an ideal place for them to vacation. 

The demand for property has given rise to the development of many new residences and this has also led to the development of commercial properties, shopping complexes and other community facilities. Increasingly more people are buying homes or lots as an investment.

The City of Fort Myers has expanded its boundaries with many building projects, many along the Caloosahatchee River. On the opposite side of the river North Fort Myers is an affordable area. Beach-front homes or properties within close proximity to the beach can be found on Sanibel Island, Captiva Island and Fort Myers Beach.

Cape Coral has been the most rapidly growing area over recent years, its popularity attributed to its many miles of waterfront, and abundance of canal properties with Gulf access. Bonita Springs and The Village of Estero are increasingly popular. San Carlos Park and Lehigh Acres attract younger families as land and home prices are less expensive than some surrounding areas.

Purchasing a property is one of the most important investments you will ever have to make, so make sure you get the help of real estate professionals to answer any questions you may have.
