Your Guide to Buying Cape Coral Real Estate

cape coral real estate

Cape Coral real estate has so many things going for it - great deals, great location, and great weather!  Cape Coral is also known as a golfing, boating, and fishing paradise.  There are so many things to do in Southwest Florida, whether you like shopping, sports, art, music, theater or nature.

Cape Coral is a great family town, it may have started out as a retirement community, but that has changed, we now have a younger population than surrounding SW Florida cities.  The city also boasts the lowest crime rate in the state, 39 parks, and some of the best schools in the area.  It's also a place that you would find the best investments in SWFL.

When the bottom fell out of the economy, Cape Coral real estate was one of the area’s most affected by the crisis in our country.  Now that the economy is rebounding, the deals and steals are mainly gone and prices have gone up, but the city still has many investment opportunities that can be bought at a great price and with great value.

Cape Coral real estate offers tons of beautiful neighborhoods, loads of waterfront and golf course homes, busy downtown areas and all kinds of recreation.   And don't forget about the sunshine!

It you are considering purchasing Cape Coral real estate, here's a little run-down of each of the  4 quadrants of the city that all investors should know:

Southeast - The oldest section of town, built in the 1960’s.  This quadrant is close to downtown shopping, Yacht Club Beach and Cape Coral Bridge into Ft Myers.  It offers many canals and riverfront properties, some downtown neighborhoods and older homes.

Southwest -  This quadrant is considered the most desirable part of the Cape because it has newer homes, yet is close to shopping areas and Cape Harbour, Marina Village and Sandoval.  It has many waterfront homes and gorgeous neighborhoods.  The SW is convenient to Ft Myers on Midpoint Bridge, shopping on Pine Island Rd, Matlacha's art galleries, and to points north by way of Burnt Store Rd.

Northwest - This section is not so built up and many people like it that way.  If you like privacy, no special assessments for at least a little while, yet newer homes, then consider the NW.  There are plenty of canals and it is convenient to shopping on Pine Island Rd, Matlacha and Coral Oaks Golf Course, Burnt Store Rd which goes north to Punta Gorda and shopping there, such as Fishermens Village.

Northeast – If you are into a private, country lifestyle the NE section of Cape Coral is for you!  This part of town is starting to get more built up with new homes and gated communities in those outer areas, and there are some lovely neighborhoods in the older parts of the SE along with more commercial areas near busy Del Prado Blvd.
