First, what size are you looking for...a 1, 2, or 3 bedroom? How many baths? Pool/no pool? Deeded beach access or boating/canal? And, price range? There are loads of deals right now, but until I know those answers, I can't guide you. We specialize on Fort Myers Beach, in fact we live here. Let us know if we can be of help.

First I want to welcome you to Fort Myers Beach. We do have a few fixer uppers under $200K and a few more in the low to mid $200's. I am sending you a link to what I believe are some of the better fixer uppers on the island.

My first suggestion would be to take a closer look at the home on Palmetto at $209K. It has been siting on the market for awhile as not everyone wants to fix a home or can see behong. I do have extra pictures of that property on Palmetto.It has been remodeled with taste but never finished.There is quite a bit to do. The potential is very good. I have over 12 years of remodeling homes before this present career and I can tell you that it is very promissing. As a Realtor and resident in Fort Myers Beach I have previewed many of these homes personaly. You may be interested to check my blog on activerain mentioned below on a link. Many are about FMB.
Contact me about this one or other " fixer uppers" on Fort Myers Beach.What size and # of rooms your need.

and Happy Hunting from Fort Myers Beach!

This year marks a milestone, its been about 5 years since you can get a beach cottage on the island for about $200,00! There are some great deals. I have lived on the island all my life and know the houses, the people and places. If you want to talk to someoone or email, I do know have an endless amount of beach knowledge. I am a Fort Myers Beach area Realtor, it makes a difference when you deal with a true local. Our website is http://www.loffreno.com please visit it for all MLS listings or call me for a custom list.
Thank you, Christian

Hi Shirley
There is a great cottage on Palermo Circle that could use a little TLC but is still super cute. There is also two on Delmar for under 300K. Let me know if you want to email them to you with the pics.
