Last time I checked, the average selling price for a home in Cape Coral was about $280,000. So I wouldn't say they are cheap. Prices reflect cost of living, and here in SWFL, the cost of living is affordable. We have lower taxes, so we get to keep more of your income. First, don't listen to the perpetually miserable complainers whop don't understand simple economics and would rather scare you away. Wages are lower here than SOME states, and higher than SOME states. I had a Buyer move to a state up north for a job making "more money". After he got his first pay check, he called me to tell me that after all of the taxes, he actually took home less than what he made here. But here's the good news.....this was during the recent blizzard where they got 5 feet of snow. I am reading below some comments from the habitually miserable who probably don't work and wish they could live here. I can count handfuls of lies and exaggerations. Rather than address them here one by one, I'd be happy to clarify the facts of any concerns you or a Buyer may have.
I am a Cape Coral native, and I know the facts about my town. If you let the chronically broke and miserable people who don't live here effect you, you'll only be fed lies. Like the person below saying there are no canals in Cape Coral, only drainage ditches. And only 10% of them lead to the Gulf. This is just a couple of the countless lies I see him telling below. These are easily debunked lies from someone with a problem. You'll find them in every city.
