Fort Myers Beach Affordable Housting Solutions

This morning I did a quick search in MLS for a client who has a budget of $ 200,000 - $ 300,000 for a home on Fort Myers Beach. There were 96 listings, 56 of them with two or more bedrooms. Of these most are condo's and some are gulf front, have views of the back bay, walking distance to the beach, close to entertainment and furnished. I want to highlight some of my favorite developments and Condo's in this price range.

The first is Leaonardo Arms Beach condo community. This is a beach front condo on the south end of Fort Myers Beach. It has excellent views in some of the units which average just over 1000 square feet and a price of about $ 270 per square foot.

Now let us look at the back bay at another one of my favorites, Santa Maria II. These units range in size but average 1060 square feet at a current average list price of $ 282 per square foot. The two bedroom floor plan is a smart use of the space. The views of the back bay are excellent and you are a very close walk to the beach. Some of the units include boat docks which are steps from your condo and 2 minutes from Fish Tail Marina where you can fuel your boat and get bait for a day on the water.

We will wrap up my favorite buys with a brand new community called The Harbour House at The Inn which is a resort condominium. It is located near the back bay but on the north end of Fort Myers Beach in the downtown area. This resort condominium offers excellent amenities, spacious floor plans and on-site rental management. This is part of the Matanzas Inn Resorts group which will give you access to fitness, beach chairs, etc. I have toured this property twice and showed units here on several occasions and it reminds me of Key West with a whisper of clean modern interior design. The units range in size; however at the 2 bedroom 911 square foot floor plan the average list price will be about $ 329 per square foot.

There are many options in the price range of $ 200,000 - $ 300,000 right now on the market. Weather you are looking at investment property to produce income or a place to spend your winters, Fort Myers Beach has soft sand, tall palm trees, cold beverages and great things to occupy your time.
