Hello there! In terms of the safest areas of Cape Coral I can tell you that compared to most cities of this size (a population of over 150,000 people and growing!) Cape Coral honestly does not have a "bad area" ~ however ~ if we're speaking honestly I would tell you that in terms of property value, the most desireable area of the city would definitely be along the SW and parts of the SE, say south of Cape Coral Parkway. That being said, it should not suggest that other areas in Cape Coral are rougher or less desireable. The fact is, property values are always higher as you get closer to the water, and if you're asking where a Realtor would want to live, it's definitely where the biggest most beautiful houses are!
On a more serious note, go to http://www.city-data.com and look for Cape Coral. It will give you everything from crime statistics to median age group and income. It's an excellent resource. Also, if you check out http://www.capecoral.net, you can view a weekly police log, minutes from city council meetings, everything you might need to know or are just a little curious about pertaining to the Cape! I hope that helped :)

I suggest you visit http://www.sheriffleefl.org.
You will be able to see the crime activity on their crime map for the entire Lee County which includes Cape Coral. I've been living in Cape Coral for 19 years and overall this is city is close to Paradise. Clean streets, beautiful city, great parks, (SUNSPLASH what keeps me here) & much more. Come visit you won't want to leave CC!

Hello, Although technically a city, Cape Coral is a sprawling suburb with 400 miles of canals of which over two hundred are gulf access. It is not legal for Realtors to tell you what they think is a high crime area or not. That may be considered steering. You need to do your own research in this area. There are many websites like Trulia that provide such information. Sorry, it is a common question that we simply can't answer.

If you are serious about buying here visit my website below.

Cape Coral is a wonderful area. If you check official statistics, you'll find we have less crime than many of our larger cities in Florida. I especially like my neighborhood near the intersection of Burnt Store Road and Pine Island Road. Our waterfront has easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, 2 city parks, and great neighbors. My husband and I moved here 16 years ago from Wash. D.C., and we're glad we chose this area.

Hello,

I know that when I was considering a move I found a neat site where I was able to compare crime rates of my current zip code to other zip codes ... I don't remember the website but bet you can google something like this.

I hope this helps you.

All The Best,

Debbie Stack

Agents can't discuss crime rates. Visit Forbes Magazine and Money Magazine online. Cape Coral is rated very safe by both magazines. You can also contact local law enforcement with your question.

No need to reword;
Realtors cannot comment on CRIME, RACE, RELIGION, etc.
Either positively or negatively; it would be called "STEERING" and a Realtor could lose their license.

Contact the police department for crime statistics - http://www.capecops.com

I think you'll find most of us live all over CC for different reasons, most that I've heard have to do with having too many or too little neighbors.
