Martin: As mentioned no Realtor can steer you towards an area more then another. So you cannot get the answer you expect. However what I can say is that a lot depends on the quality of the home and above all the difference between the elevation of the street to the base of the home itself for starters.
The great part about San Carlos is that it is located smack between Bonita and Fort Myers and just before Estero, so its very convienient as a location. and you can get quite a lot for your buck there.
As for demographics just send me your e-mail and I'll be glad to send you a link and a list of homes available..
Just do a spin yourself and get a feel for the area and then pick a Realtor. There are some great deals to be made in San Carlos Park.
