With it being the season, we’ve been talking a bit about some of the areas that represent serious value for snowbirds. From Longboat Key to Cape Coral, we’ve been exploring the communities that might fit your lifestyle best. When it comes to owning a second home in SWFL, there are some unparalleled opportunities. Not only that, but with warm weather throughout the year, you’re going to love the fact that you don’t have to shovel snow. Then, add in all the amenities we have, from upscale shopping to outdoor adventure, and you’re on your way to living in paradise.
But, of course, I want you to have as many options as possible. When you’re buying a home in here, there’s a lot to consider, especially in choosing the right real estate for you and your family. On that note, here are 4 more cities that offer value and phenomenal living right here in Southwest Florida.
This area of Southwest Florida has several honors. For one, Forbes named it as one of their 25 best places to retire in the entire country. It’s also made similar lists over the past few years as well. What I love best about this area is that the real estate is especially affordable for SWFL. At the same time, it’s a nice halfway point between hip spots like Sarasota and St. Petersburg, but also amenities in Venice and Naples, Florida. Plus, the sports’ fishing is out of this world in Charlotte Harbor.
This part of Southwest Florida is a large community toward the southeast of Fort Myers. Once part of the Florida real estate boom of the 2000s, much has happened in the meantime. Over the past five years, the incredibly affordable homes have been quietly purchased and revamped. Along with its cousin Cape Coral to the north, this area is one to keep your eye on if you’re a snowbird. You’ll find amazing prices, newer homes, and a short drive to the best beaches in the world.
North Sanibel Island
Even though Sanibel is all one community, there’s a slight difference between the north and south ends of the island. For one, you’ll find that the beaches offer slight differences (though all of them are beautiful.) But because the north part of the island is a little further off the main bridge and closer to sleepy Captiva, snowbirds will love that it’s a little more hidden away. Still, property here represents a more upscale lifestyle, but with a tropical feel.
