I am newly settled in Ft Myers and I dont know the demographics. I live in "Gateway" off Daniels Parkway. It is everything I had hoped for. Secure....safe....convenient..and beautiful.

Some of the neighborhoods in Gateway are quite expensive...but there are some condos and townhouses that are less so. I think I saw them advertising some new ones starting at $150,000.....but I am not too sure about that. There are some nice neighborhoods over near the Gateway Elementary School (not the HS)....I dont know your budget but you might want to check it out.

I am almost directly across from Cypress Lake Middle School. There are a number of nice locations (safe) but then again it depends on if you are looking for a house/condo or townhome. Single family, I would try to get into Whiskey Creek... Condo or townhome, many many to choose from... BUT once again, there can be a seedy area that inter mingles in any gegraphic location, so do your due dilgence.

Thanks,that's very true,it's always so stressful looking for a house,you don't know the neighborhood,and it's just so stressful.

Bear in mind that you can't count on your child attending a particular school thanks to School Choice, now more aptly named School Assignment. However, I do realize that you or someone in your household may be employed at the school and that is your reason for asking.

What is your price range? For example, a non- gated community just down the road from Cypress Lake, Town&River, is a waterfront community. The waterfront homes range from million plus to 450k. The non waterfront homes 125k plus. Most of the homes here were built in late 70's and 80's. there are a few newer homes, you can't miss these McMansions, they are built to 2002-5 code with 14 foot elevations. They tower over their neighbors.

The Daniels corridor is one of the "Hot" places to be in Fort Myers. It is Central to everything. The economics through here have the greatest diversity. 10m down to 35k

Just for disclosure sake, I am not a realtor. I do have quite a few customers throughout these areas.

The only way you can go wrong buying here is your budget limitation. If your shopping 50k or less chances are you are going to end up in an older area with a high probability some of your neighbors will be renters and care about their home less.

I hope this helps.

thank you,it does help a lot,I'm thinking lower in price range,10 m and 35 k is way too expensive,I'm thinking 200 thousand.
