Lehigh Acres, Fort Myers or Cape Coral ?

Asked by Prasanna Upperi, New York, NY Wed Mar 6, 2013

Hi There,

I want to buy an investment property for rental purposes. Can experts tell me which one is better and why? I am an out of state investor. So I need some insight here.

The cities are different, they all share our Florida life style and beautiful climate.
It depends also on how much you want to invest. Do you want waterfront property? or prefer the nice countryside with the big trees? or maybe a downtown feel with the river views?
Ultimately the choice is yours.
But don't wait too long our market is great!
If you have any questions call me at 239-297-8933.

I work with a lot of out of state investors like your self. Most important things to think about are: How many you are looking to purchase, Do you want to flip right away or down the road, Are wanting something you can fix then rent and then flip, so as you can see there are several ways to invest, and the communities are just another answer to the questions above. If I can help answer any questions for you or make recommendations, just give me a call at 239-603-4128

Hi Cary,

Thank you for your reply. First I want to start with one property and if I feel comfortable after few months I may one or two more and that about it. I am not looking for fixer uppers. I am looking for turn key rental properties. I am not looking to flip right away. I am planning for rental income may be after 3 - 5 years after that I may sell for profit.

Hope that answers all your questions.

They are all great rental areas. Lehigh probably will give you the best return on your investment and rental income.

I agree with Neil. Each area is different and has it's own strengths and weaknesses.

a lot will depend on your investment strategy ( are you looking to fix and flip? hold and rent? if rent, are you seasonal or annual?) It would be much easier for everyone to answer your question if we had a little more information.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for your reply. I am looking for a turn key properties. I don't have experience in fixing. I want to rent it out annual.

Hope that helps
