This depends as to if you are looking for a community that you own the lot as well or not. Some of the communities offer clubhouses,pools ,golf ect a range of ground rents go from a low of $300.00 per month to over $600.00

You may want to consider a different type of housing.

You don't have the community linked to your question. If you are buying there are restrictions in most communities and if you are renting there can be even more restrictions. Email me for more info.

Peppertree Pointe is part of a few subdivisions along and towards a larger river development off Iona road.It is located in South Fort Myers.
below are a few Spanish Mediterranean style condos in the low $100's and the third one is a luxury home with over 4000 SF. The first 2 have access to a marina( dock to lease) and fishing pier and more. It is certainly a community to take a look at. This is a gated community.With just over 1300 sf these condos offer a lot with leasant architectural designs and vistas.

Forced air furnaces run off natural gas; everything is electric here. The air handler has a heating element vs forced air systems.

Typically if split correctly, a 7% commission will make you look more desirable than the competition. Ethically a real estate agent is not supposed to look at commission first when deciding what to show a client, but people are people and it happens sometimes. With a 3.5% offering, you look VERY intriguing to ALL agents. The proper split should be giving out 3.5% to buyers agent and sellers agent keeping 3.5%. I hope this answers your question. Just ask what the split is before you sign the contract. Here in NJ it is BOLD on our contracts so you can not miss it, but I am not sure how it is in Florida. Best of luck! ... more

Hello, I believe the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area is still the place to be for investment. A cap rate of around 10% is still possible with certain properties. There are still single family homes and multi family homes well worth looking into. Vacancy rates are not very high for good properties in good locations. I am a Realtor in Cape Coral/Fort Myers since 1997. ... more

In my experience, they're pretty much the same and you should only be charged one or the other. HOA stands for Home Owners Association, so, pretty much your condo association IS your homeowners association. ... more

Hello Contessa1486:

Eagle Pointe is in Gateway which is a mixed use community of single family homes, townhouses, condos, schools, some shops and an amazing golf course. It is located close to SW Florida International Airport and I75 and the new Jet Blue Park where the Boston Red Sox spring training games are held.

Very nice community. I see there is 1 single family home on the market in Eagle Point at this time.

There aren't that many houses for sale in Lehigh, half the houses you see as available show up on sites like Trulia and as Active and available, when in actuality they are probably short sales that have multiple contracts on them. Under the status of Active Contingent Short Sale, these homes still show up as for sale to the consumer on these sites. If you'd really like to see what is available out there and what you can get in your price range, email me at and tell me what you are looking for, or call or text me at 239-699-8233. Thank You.
