Cape Coral topping all lists


Visitors: 204

South west Florida is awash with history and culture spreading right back through the centuries to the time of the Calusa Indians and then a little later the Spanish Conquistadors. In those times there were Galleons bearing treasures sailing the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, often challenged by the many pirates who patrolled the area seeking out easy pickings. Therefore, to talk about the history of a city situated in the heart of those lands that is only around half a century old would seem to be a little futile. However, the story behind the remarkable transformation of Cape Coral is every bit as fascinating and extraordinary as those from yesteryear.

What was once a wilderness is now regarded as a paradise on the mainland and a place for the buying and selling of dreams. Cape Coral real estate listings are bursting at the seems as folk clamor to become part of this spot of perfection. When touring the place today it is almost impossible to imagine the area that presently has magnificent modern housing in fantastic settings and superb landscapes, was once nothing but mangroves, muddy pools, salt marshes, vegetation, pine trees and hard limestone. The land had to be built to 5 feet 6 inches above sea level and a maze of canals were dug out to weave across it.

There was an immediate boom with the brothers behind the master plan completely underestimating the impact of their project and in the first five months of their development land sales rocketed to a staggering $5 million! There was a slump a few years back but things have turned full circle and the place is absolutely booming again. Its history really is quite unparalleled, in some ways it has a Hollywood feel to it, but underneath it all are genuine similarities to the old wild west but all with a magically tropical flavor.

Cape Coral real estate listings are full of every type of residence including condos, town houses, foreclosures, villas, single and multi family homes. They are categorized so as to make things easier for the prospective buyer with things like price range, waterfront or central location, square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms and more, each separated. A typical listing would add details referencing swimming pool size, access to the Gulf if applicable, height of ceilings, single, double or even triple garage, and convenience to local amenities.

Each listing has its own identification number meaning that tracking is simple. Basically everything is set up for those wishing to move themselves into the city, be that on a permanent basis or just as a seasonal retreat. There really are some magnificent homes to look at and plenty more in the lower price bracket too. Its location just 14 miles from South West Florida International Airport makes the accessibility near perfect. Relax in the tranquil surroundings amid temperatures which remain high all year round with hour after hour of constant sunshine, yet should the need arise, it is possible to be amongst the hustle and bustle of the business world in minutes, courtesy of a very short drive. It is little wonder that the real estate market continues to thrive in the region.

If you have a general idea of what you are looking for in a property a visit to is certainly worthwhile. Here you will discover Cape Coral real estate listings of almost every type of residency imaginable.
