Location is everything when considering to purchase a home in SW Florida. From an investment point of view, Supply and Demand is what drives prices. You may pay more for a property in a highly desired location, but also remember when the supply is depleted, your properties value will sky rocket... As you know, you pay more for the location. Cape Coral & Bonita Springs are both great areas and b-t-w SWFL is full of Gated communities. We have well over 120 in between Lee & Collier county. Most have HOA's and feature various ammenities. Golfing, boating, retirement, family oriented,etc. It is added securtiy but more so a choice in Lifestyle. Obviously, price is an issue for everyone; nevertheless, I would rather live in a great location and compromise on home features than live in an area I am not thrilled about. Remember, a pool can always be added to the right property at a later date. A pre-existing pool home may not have the exact size or shape of pool that you desire.Native to South West Florida,Robert TylerSouthern Premier Realtywww.FLeasyLiving.com
I agree with Anthony's post...Cape Coral is a wonderful place to live, play and work. Just like Anthony said.....Cape Coral does have a small beach located in the Yacht Club area. But most important....Cape Coral has over 400 miles of waterfront canals...it is a boating community…so most people park their boat in their backyard and from there visit some of the most private and pristine beaches you will ever see. Cayo Costa and Boca Grande just to name a few are a pleasant boat ride from the NW Cape area. In my opinion....you can get a bigger bang for your buck in Cape Coral than Bonita for a couple of reasons. One, Bonita is closer to the big public beaches. Two, Bonita is closer to Naples and Naples has higher real estate market values. But most important Cape Coral is a newer City--only been incorporated since the 1970's....so for the past 40 years the number one industries in Cape Coral has been building. It is still the same property…still fabulous boating access to the Gulf of Mexico…just got caught being in the wrong place at the wrong time during this economic downturn.
Basically it depends on what you like. Cape Coral is a Big City with a HOMETOWN feel. If you want to chat with people in the grocery store…you found the right place.
If it is the beach access that concerns you…I can tell you this…I LOVE the beach. I love it almost as much as I love my job as a fulltime Realtor. When I do get a day off I'll take a drive over to Sanibel or down to one of the other beaches in Naples or Bonita. Not a problem.
My suggestion is to visit both areas and see what you like.
