I live in Cape Coral just south of Placida. My aunt lives in Placida, and has for 22 years. We are seeing steady price increases in the entire area. With rates so low and prices down many are purchasing their retirement home now. They are renting them out or using them as vacation homes for now. We also have many Europeans, Canadians and snow birds picking up the good buys. I don't have a crystal ball, but price points are moving up, short sales are going through, and the foreclosures have almost stopped. If you would like any additional information on the area, or homes in the area, I would be happy to help.
Have a great day,
