That's a great question. The best way is work with a realtor that has been living in SW Florida for many years as their knowledge of neighborhoods and the surrounding areas would be extensive. I moved to Cape Coral in 1987 and have raised my family here so I am very familiary with Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Sanibel and The Beaches. I would love to help you in any way. Please email me at email@example.com or call (239) 910-6485. I can give you a free account on our MLS service so you can check out all the properties for sale in many different areas. I look forward to hearing from you.
