As you can see from the other responses, things have changed quite a bit in Cape Coral in the last few years. Our inventory of homes for sale is very low, and of course that means prices go up. Here are some current statistics as of this morning: 1,393 single family homes are active on the market. 74 of those are foreclosures, and 82 are short sales. Those are the real numbers directly from the MLS. What you may be seeing on Trulia or some other websites could be deceiving. Most of the distressed homes get multiple offers as soon as they hit the market and end up selling for at or above the asking price. There are still good deals out there, and our values are still relatively low compared to surrounding areas like Ft. Myers and other parts of Florida. But if you are thinking about buying, don't wait too long! We have seen an increase in median home prices of approximately 20% over the past year. Let me know if I can help further. Good luck.
The amount of foreclosures and short sales have declined dramatically in the past year or so, as have the total number of properties that are currently on the market. As inventory decreases, prices have risen.

I don't know where you are seeing these. We are seeing very few foreclosures and short sales on the market compared to what we were seeing. Are these realty trac listings? If so those are not homes for sale. Let me know if I can help.
