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.

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.

I come originally from Minnesota so for me I would trade the summer rain for the winter snow & cold any day of the week!
1. The summer time is pretty hot. It does rain everyday but usually for no more than an hour. It's just like being up north for me, only opposite. I go from my air conditioned home to my air conditioned car to my air conditioned office! Most homes have a screen on their lani that takes care of the bugs.
2. There are so many homes on the market because (Cape Coral) at least was very desired because of the 400 miles of canals in this town. Many so called "Investors" got 100% financing from sub prime lenders so when the market started to decline they had nothing invested in the property, so they all walked away. Keep in mind also that many people (especially the construction industry) lost their jobs and were forced to leave their homes as many of them had ARM's.
My personal opinion is that Fort Myers has some pretty bad traffic, Cape Coral doesn't have that much. Certain parts of almost any city will have its traffic jams in certain areas at certain times of the day.
The average age of Cape Coral is 46, that is not old!
Good luck and feel free to give me a call with any quesitons.

Hi Chris, I am so glad that you and your husband see the advantages of investing in property here in Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. You may search freely on for 1000's of properties offering varioius amenities at short sale pricing.
Unemployment is at an all time high therefore there are many people competing for the same jobs. However, if you have job experience I would search or contact one of the local recruiter offices. People I know are getting jobs. The Christian Chamber in Fort Myers also helps people with finding jobs. Let me know if I can look some phone numbers up or send you any additional information.
