  • Fri Apr 10 2020, 2:08 pm

Investing in Florida property is one of the wisest decisions you may ever make because, for the past few years, property and home values in the state have consistently increased. Homebuyers and investors from all over the country have taken advantage of foreclosures, residential and commercial acreage, as well as waterfront property and homes inside gated golf communities. Florida real estate offers it all from single-family homes to waterfront luxury and if Southwest Florida is in your sights, here are the top investment cities within Lee and Charlotte Counties.

Cape Coral

As one of the fastest-growing areas in Florida, Cape Coral offers an amazing opportunity for buyers seeking vacant lot property and new homes. Only a bridge’s distance away from the City of Palms, Cape Coral has a growing nightlife, tasteful dining, and everything you could ask for when it comes to family outings and shopping.


With an abundance of gated golf and tennis communities and quiet streets, new home developments and established communities like San Carlos Park offer single-family homes and nearby access to I-75, Miromar Outlets, Hertz Arena, Gulfcoast Town Center, and Florida Gulf Coast University. If you’re ready to raise a family or move south toward an active lifestyle, the Estero area is a fantastic area located between Naples and Fort Myers where residents receive the best of both worlds.

Bonita Springs

Searching for the old-Florida feel in Lee county? Bonita Springs is an up and coming area where Old U.S 41 leads from collier county into its sister county, Lee, and it promotes new bike paths and farmers markets, and cafes right in the heart of downtown Bonita Springs. With nearby golf courses, Bonita Beach, and a quick drive to Naples and Estero, Bonita Springs is a great place to invest in riverfront property, fixer-upper homes or duplexes, or waterfront property. Kayak down the Imperial River or shop Coconut Point Mall or Flamingo Flea Market which is only a ten-minute drive north and stay all-year-round or part-time.

Port Charlotte

For investors ready to purchase land or a home they can rent, Port Charlotte is an up and coming area for future landlords and retirees. Look to affordable waterfront homes and properties, gulf access for boating and kayaking as well as popular outdoors spots like the Peace River Botanical & Sculpture Gardens, Charlotte Harbor State Park, and Port Charlotte Beach Park.

Punta Gorda

The city of Punta Gorda is a quiet beach town a few miles south of Tampa located in Charlotte county. For the retired couple who wants an established home and a vacation destination for the rest of the family, home buyers and property investors will find long stretches of beachfront, amazing fishing, and fine dining. Punta Gorda is a safe community and only a short drive north from downtown Fort Myers and south of St. Petersburg.
