Fort Myers Beach is a barrier island snuggled along the coast of Southwest Florida. It is approx 8 miles long and barely a third of a mile at it's widest. The beautiful beach and amazing sunsets make this a favorite among U.S., Canadian and international buyers. While there are some distressed properties here our market has weathered the current challenges much better than most. Fort Myers Beach is a very diverse island community and has an easy going rythem all it's own. Life here is measured by the number of beach walks and sunsets you can pack into your winter vacation. For a lucky few it is our office, our back yard, our dream come true ! I often tell my friiends" I wasn't born on Fort Myers Beach but I got here as soon as I could !"
Our office, Century 21 Tripower, was contacted to list and sell a single family home here on the island. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath and located on one of our canals leading to the Gulf of Mexico. Our rental department would rent it for approx $20k on an annual basis. It is a " fixer " with a lot of potential ! The lender wants it sold and is asking $ 375k. Tthis would be an excellent price for a single family canal home with a pool.
The divorced owners started renovations prior to renting it. The interior is described as a " split " floor plan with master on one side and two guests rooms on the other side. At this price the ne3w owner will be able to upgrade the home to attract an annual renter or sesonal renters.
This house has enough potential to appeal to an investor or someone looking for an island retreat. Located on a canal it is also ideal for the fisherman who wants to park the boat close at hand. The newer pool is caged and appears to be in great condition. The boat lift is in need of repairs with the pilings and power lift are usable but needing motors and carriage.
Flamingo St is a very nice street located mid-island and " walking close " to restaurants, theater, CVS pharmacy, banks, shops, marina, etc. For those wanting to purchase at 2003 prices this is an excellent property. This address is a short walk to the beautiful beach on the Gulf of Mexico !
