Fort Myers Real Estate
For those of you who are thinking of buying real estate in beautiful Southwest Florida, there is an abundance of realtors and developers in Lee County to help you find or build the place of your dreams.
The choice of properties available range from magnificent waterfront homes, high rise condos, and upscale gated communities to less expensive single family homes. You can choose to buy an existing home, a pre-construction house or buy a plot of land and have a custom home built.
In addition to retirees, many young families have relocated to Florida to set up home. The climate, the proximity to the beaches and the laid-back lifestyle are all factors which have attracted people throughout America to come and live in the Fort Myers area. Many people who are in a position to purchase a second home have decided to purchase real estate in Florida since it is the 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 such as those on Sanibel, Captiva and Estero Island (the home of Fort Myers Beach) are more exclusive and are price higher.
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 Estero are increasingly popular. San Carlos Park and Lehigh Acres attract younger families because land and home prices are not excessive.
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.
