If you’re looking for a good real estate investment, Cape Coral duplexes and multi-families may be the way to go. While the city’s not as populated as nearby Fort Myers, Cape Coral does offer a prime location and a relatively more affordable price point.
Since its early beginnings, Cape Coral has been an attractive location for real estate investors. With relatively affordable property prices, a tight rental inventory and a growing pool of renters, it is possible for real estate investors to generate positive cash flow for their Cape Coral investments. Much of the housing stock in Cape Coral is not inside the gates of a communities with high HOA fees that eat into investor returns.
Morgan Stanley analyst Oliver Chang recently declared that 2012 will be “The Year of the Landlord.” Chang further elaborated that “Rents are rising, vacancies are falling, household formations are growing and rental supply is limited,” the Morgan Stanley report stated. “We believe the demand for rental properties will continue to grow.”
