Help the community by answering this question:


Bella Terra's fees are comparable with other similar communities in Estero. There are a few things to consider when evaluating properties in Estero such as amenities offered (Golf, Tennis, Etc.) and whether of not you'd take full advantage of what the community offers. For instance you may not want to buy a property in a community that requires a golf membership if you're not a golfer. Bella Terra offers a lot of amenities that appeal to a vast majority of people and I've sold several homes in there that have made my clients very satisfied with their decision.

I live and specialize in Estero. I sell a lot of homes in Bella Terra and their fees are very reasonable....especially considering other communities around. In Bella your fees cover the amenities, basic cable, guard 24/7, and lawn mowing.....along with other small items. Stoneybrooks down the road may be less but they do not include the Lawn maintenance and have a higher CDD attached to the tax bill. All in all.....it is a great community and one that almost everyone enjoys. If you would like to view any of the homes let me know and I can set that up.

Estero has many nice communities and other can be found all over Lee County and Naples below are other that may interest you too:


You question is a hard one to answer and wise ones too, however I do not know anything about you and your interest.

The first question I need to know, where your comfort zone in price range and monthly HOA fees is.

Second, what is fun to you? Your hobbies? You like Golf? Golf can be an important issue, since there are fees you have to worry about, and with some communities you are mandated to pay them, even if you do not like golf?

Do you have kids? Would a 55 plus community interest you? Is this a primary residence or an investment/second home?

I will post some Bella Properties on my pinterest that may interest you. If Estero your main interest Kevin Below looks like an interesting person to talk with

Good luck

You are in a great opportunity now to interview agents and hire one that can help you and work best with your style,with questions like you have and deal with the issues like this that comes up.

In trulia you have a great opportunity by looking at blogs and profile and answer they have given on this site, to decide who you feel comfortable with.This way, you have a real person that you can deal with directly and email and can call, you also have a real estate agent that help in your searches and steps you need to do to be successful in our market here in Southwest Florida.

I have written blogs on Trulia as well as my weblog and those links are provided for you below to decide if I am an agent for you.There are others in Trula you can look at as well. I would think, if I was a buyer, I would want someone locally that knows the area and help save you time so you can do what you need to do for yourself. This does not stop you for looking at properties, but I will send you properties you have expressed interest in, offer other you can decide if they interest you, and your needs,the price range you are comfortable with in the area you want. Trust me, this will work very well and if that agent u pick does not work for you, Fire him/her and hire another,





I am sure you can find many capable agents, chose one that serves your best interest, before you ready to place an offer on any property. You do not need 3 different agents. Loyalty and trust works both ways.

Remember: “Pictures without ALL the information are never the total picture and always the entire story ~!” Realtor Ron W ..”Pictures being shown, are attention gotcha, use to draw your interest. The rest, the information, will help you decide. Where that information comes from is IMPORTANT to you, and it may not all be on the listing information! Having an agent will get you the missing pieces. Then when you actually view the property; have it inspected where everything begins to fall into place having a pre-approval letter or proof of funds ready done ready for the seller’s hands. Sellers and Banks expect this information, before reviewing yours or any offers. Do not lose out by not having this or a Realtor® that is not the listing agent that serves the seller. Remember, the seller pays the commission!! You Get to choose your Realtor®!”

Thank you amaash for your time.

Good Afternoon!

There are actually many variables to your question...such as, are you looking at a condo, a villa, a townhome, or a single family home? Each 'style' of home differs and carries a separate sub-association fee. Please feel free to call me or send me an e-mail and I can better answer your question with more information. I live in Bella Terra and have a few active listings in the community.

I look forward to hearing from you!
