Average value of a gulf access lot means little. If you would like to explore the market value of a lot that you own or would like to purchase, contact a Realtor to find comparable sales of SIMILAR lots that have recently sold. There is just too much variance in the value of water lots, because of location and other factors. I hope this helps.

Lots of things affect price of waterfront lots: Distance to the Gulf, river, Matlacha Pass or Pine Island Sound. One key factor is the number of bridges and the height of the bridges that your boat must pass under. "Sailboat" access is considered to have no bridges blocking the mast for instance. Depth of the water going out can dictate the kind of hull that your boat has and therefore affect price of the waterfront. Also the direction that your lot faces can also affect value, as southern exposure is highlly desired to keep pools their warmest, to provide summer's breezes, and to allow the house to block the lanai from winter's northerly cool winds.
I've lived on the water here and boated here for 17 years. Plus I worked at a yachting community (Cape Harbour) for 10 years. Call me for more info and to answer any further questions you may have.

As you probably know gulf access lots in Cape Coral are priced according to their proximity to the gulf, size of the lot, and view. It is really hard to give you an average price as there are lots from $30k-$500k. You are usually better off to buy a lot without a seawall or boat lift, and add those after the fact. The reason is it is usually more expensive to buy a lot with the seawall and boat lift already installed. I have several gulf access lots that aren't listed in the MLS. Please visit my website or call me for more information.
