Waterfront living in the low $100,000s
Homes on Cape Coral’s freshwater canals offer the same wonderful water views without the price tag of a gulf access home. Many Cape Coral freshwater homes are newer as a significant number were built during the boom years when gulf access lots were priced out of sight.
Cape Coral freshwater canals are popular for fishing and many offer navigation to a chain of canals and freshwater lakes. One of the things that I really like about freshwater canals in Cape Coral is that they are not nearly as built-out as gulf access canals. Many freshwater homes have adjacent vacant lots or a vacant lot across the canal. These settings offer a peacefulness and serenity second to none in Southwest Florida!
Some of the best values right now are with Cape Coral freshwater foreclosed homes. Newer Cape Coral freshwater foreclosed homes are currently selling in low $100s. There are also some interesting opportunities with non-distressed Cape Coral freshwater homes. With the price reductions over the past couple of years, the opportunity to live the Florida lifestyle in a waterfront setting is now an option for a much broader set of buyers.
