As a real estate agent in Cape Coral, I probably shouldn't tell anyone not to move here. It's a beautiful city, with over 400 miles of canals (more than Venice, Italy!), local festivals and parks, sporting and recreation around every corner, and amazing diversity in housing options. But this isn't enough to "move" to Cape Coral.
Because if you're going to buy a home in Cape Coral, FL, you'll want to become a Florida resident! And living in Florida changes your life! Leisure is the name of the game; golf, swimming, fishing, unique local restaurants, and boating are no longer amenities-- they're a lifestyle!
But I Want a Vacation Home!
I find that nearly 50% of my business comes from vacationers looking for a permanent house during the winter months, and to visit on a regular (or irregular) schedule. And Cape Coral is a wonderful destination, outside the larger, busier cities, but still close to the beaches and popular waterfront destinations.
It's our job to get to know you, and learn about your likes and dislikes, reasons for vacationing in Florida (there are so many!), and what sort of home you're looking for. Each person is different, and each has their own tastes, completely unique to their own. Yet, we give everyone the same advice:
Don't just "move" to Cape Coral. Become a part of the Cape Coral life. We did and we couldn't be happier!
