Both are nice areas with much to do. SW Florida overall has quite a bit of resources for people with disabilities. From parks, rec centers, groups that meet, etc. Of the 2 areas, Cape Coral is larger and a little newer, so it has more to offer than Port Charlotte. But both are nice areas, low crime, clean, progressive thinking, great weather, plenty of things to do especially around water. You have LARK, Special Equestrians, UCP of SWFL, and Grace Church who has a great adult special needs program.
Good luck, I hope you like it here. If you need any help, have any questions, or need to see homes, just let me know. I am a native of Cape Coral with 17 years of real estate experience all here in SWFL.

Cape Coral is very beautiful, clean, and safe. Currently ranked 17th safest city in the nation, down from our recent #2 ranking. There are several award winning schools, and of course some that have lower grades. Cape Coral used to be more of a retirement community, and it still is to an extent, but there are so many more young families now. CC has ranked top 10 in many encouraging categories recently, such as affordability, best places to retire, best place to start a new business, etc.

If you need help from some one actually from here, who loves where he lives and knows everything about our area, feel free to reach out to me any time. I could live anywhere. I have been to 4 continents, handfuls of countries, 42 states. But I choose to live here, where thousands of people every year pay good money to come visit.

Very safe. In general, Cape Coral is a safe city. We were ranked #2 safest city in Florida, and #17th safest city in America, with a population over 100,000. You have no worries living here. Crime is everywhere of course, but CC is safe, clean, and a great place to live.

Most of Cape Coral would appeal to you and that age group. If you are looking for a gated community, Sandoval and Coral Lakes might appeal to you. If you'd like, I'll be happy to email properties to you to look at. That way you can look through my Realtor portal.

I am from Cape Coral, which is kind of rare here. I can answer any question you have about our area. I have also been in the real estate business since 2000, so please, fire away.

You can search home here, or send me a message so I can give you a link to my MLS.

Hi Tamarhel:
typically you must have a min of 620 to purchase through secondary market outlets. However if you have a good downpayment you maybe able to obtain Seller Financing as Mohsen Cyrus indicates in one of the answers. It would be wise to meet with a Mortgage Banker and see what steps you will need to take to resolve some of the credit issues and get your credit to the 620 mark. Good Luck! ... more

Jackson Willis answered:
I think it's better to list it at the higher price. If you're giving the buyers a choice anyway, then they'll be pleasantly surprised by the price drop if they choose cheaper countertops. Alternatively, they could get upset or decide not to get a place if the price gets increased based on their selections. I personally think that granite countertops are better anyway and I would just leave that out as an option point and install the granite countertops.

Here is a link to the City of Punta Gorda for items that need a permit.
You can contact them with questions at any time.

Punta Gorda Isles does have deed restrictions and ordinances, so you need to check with them before painting. Here is a link for that:

This is real estate, everything is negotiable, most people will want a year lease agreement, but I'm sure you could get someone to do month to month. Some rent is better than no rent.

I realize I am answering this question 5 years later but I want to be sure that everyone knows
Cape Coral has no more bugs than any other part of Florida. Lee County uses airplanes to spray
and kill mosquitoes, especially after a big rain storm.
I live and play on my canal. Never has it had an odor. We have dolphin, manatees, tarpon and many other fish that I am sure would stay in the Gulf of Mexico if there was a problem.
