With this said, please check the current property taxes on the Lee County Property Appraiser's web site at:
You may shop both markets and the entire FL Gulfcoast MLS and have the tax information for each property at your finger tips by going to http://www.swfloridahomebuyer.listingbook.com. Your login and criteria selected will allow the system to send you matching properties and updates daily.
The tax basis is higher in the Cape than in Lehigh. Similar properties generally sell about $15,000.00 higher in Cape Coral. A new central water plant in NW Cape will continue to keep improving values and eventually water and sewers will be assessed to all areas of the Cape.
Sewers assessments will be coming to Lehigh as well and the concentrated areas will be close to Lee Blvd.
Property values have a lot to do with assessed values and vice versa.
As your buyers agent I can assist you in finding the best value for your particular needs. Helping you with knowing the expenses in making a home purchase are a part of my job. My fees are paid for by the seller or sellers bank. Happy to help you when you're ready.
