Depending on your price range, Estero (contiguous to Fort Myers' southern border, between Ft. Myers and Bonita Springs) is a great place to live. There are no city taxes here as we are in unincorporated Lee county.
An important consideration is the financial viability of the condo association. You may get what you feel is a great buy on a condo, but if the association is in financial trouble, it's defiinitely not a bargain.
You can buy a condo in Naples in the $40K's, but your share of the association budget could be make it cost prohibitive. Buyer Beware. Your agent will be able to steer you in the right direction.
Your association fees can go up from year-to-year and become a burden. You can expect most developments current fees to be $300 a month at the least and some associations go up to $650 mo.+, so fees play a major role in your buying decision.
Everything depends on your price range. Age of condo? In general, try to buy as new as you can. Watch for Chinese drywall, though. Be sure to choose concrete block. Most of them are. Check on % of delinquency in association. A long check list.
If Estero seems like a community you'd like to check out, please call or e-mail.
