Good Morning Sharon,

As you have heard, we have an incredibly safe city. When you decide which Realtor to use. Be sure to have them discuss the 4 quarters of Cape Coral. SW, SE, NE, and NW. We have a much different kind of market here and depending on your likes and dislikes, a good realtor will be able to establish which area fits you best. =)

Feel free to check out my website for more answers. Have a Beautiful Day!

Cape Coral has a land mass of 105 square miles and a population of about 155,000. This means comparing developed area to none developed areas more importantly than . The most “desirable” areas are the SW, SE close to the Caloosahatchee River. Otherwise, Cape Coral offers a wonderful lifestyle with reasonable priced homes, low crime rate and great weather. Cape Coral was recently selected as the 5th best place to live in Florida by Movoto

Cape Coral was recently ranked one of the safest big cities in America by the FBI.

In terms of understanding specific neighborhoods, it is important to work with a Realtor who is either a native, or a long time resident who at any moment, at any location, can give you the history of that area, and outline the expectations of that neighborhood in terms of crime, values, local schools, etc.

I am here to help! I remember when Cape Coral installed it's first traffic light. I have grown up here, gone to school here, and played on these streets and canals since I was a little boy.

We have one of the lowest crime rates for a city this size in ALL of Florida. Check it out on our local police and sheriff depts websites. Or just google it.

Without knowing your budget it is difficult to be specific. There are excellent values all over southwest Florida including Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island. Please feel free to contact me or brouse properties on my web site

If you are concerned about safety, your best source of information is the local police department, why not visit/call and ask all your questions. If you are not too familiar with the areas, consider driving around the neighborhood(s) more than once and at different times of day, look at everything that is important to you and then make your determination--keep in mind opinions are often suggestive, and what's good for one may not necessarily be the case for another.

I would say the SW Cape followed by parts of the SE area.

Not really other than the fact that in some areas of the North Cape alot of vacant lots exist so if you purchase a home surrounded by vacant lots it does make it easier for your a/c condensor, water equipt get stolen. I have lived in Cape Coral since 1988 and have always preferred the SE section but that is just my own personal preference. Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions...after over 20 years living here, I know the area very well.
