I wouid suggest Horizon Village in North Fort Myers. If you were to look in Del Tura Golf and Country Club and Lake Fairways or Pines Lakes, they are strict on the credit issue. Although it is not fair, and I object to this criteria for ownership in those communities, there is no way around it. I am sure I can find you a nice home in Horizon Village for $10,000. When will you be in the area to look at homes? If you give me your e-mail address, I'd be happy to send you listings of homes that are under $10,000 or close in price.
Also, the lot rents in Del Tura, Pines Lakes and Lake Fairways continue to rise. My lot rent just went from $697 to $714 starting January 1, 2013, so lot rents go up about 3% per year and the management gets away with this.
