I keep reading that the NE part of the Cape is not desirable. But I didn't see a huge difference between between here and other areas of Cape Coral. Having said that I have huge concerns of where the area could be heading if some things aren't addressed. I may be naive, but I think that the residents need to be more active in their community, get to know our neighbors and be involved when things do happen. I see an area that needs to have residents that are aware and involved because we have a lot of open space and vacant homes, if criminals think they can get away with it - they will. This area has a lot of potential if those who live here live beyond their four walls

Well the NE isn't just the area by Hancock. And the map looks pretty equal to me in the past 30 days.

Hi my brother and I are planning on moving to the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area.
I have been looking on the internet at apartments to rent but I know they can look good but are dumps.
Could some of you give me some names of nice complexes or preferably a town home community for rent?
I have a beagle - no problems at all.
We are looking for a 2 but hopefully 3 bedroom 2 bath with washer and dryer in the unit. We pay 1600.00 here in Minnesota. Your help would be great for when we come down for a week to look around.
Also, how is the job market for part time work at places like Home Depot and Target?
We are in our 50's and only work part time right now.
Thanks for your help!!
Laurie

I own a home in the NE section in Cape Coral.. I saw a map listing the crime that took place and the NE area looked clear as far as crime goes .. I live there 5-6 winter months out of the year. I am heading down to CC in a few days and have great neighbors who check out my palms and feed them if they start to yellow. We take pride in our homes and are adding more landscaping. That is about the biggest problem with the NE.. need more trees and bushes .

All in all the Cape has friendly people and many of them are from the North retiring here for the beautiful weather. Haven't spend a summer in the Cape yet but will be in the future.

Cape Coral was built as a boating community when it was developed. The problem with the NE section is the canals don't have any access to other bodies of water, either the Gulf, or the river. You can buy a house on a canal in the NE section but you can only go as far as that canal takes you. They are fresh water canals...so called. That makes this area less desirable to the boating population.
As far as crime, I don't think is any worse than the other sections. Its a little sparsely developed but its all in what you want.

The downsides of the NE are : (like Beak said) no gulf/river access canals, its close proximity to a couple of bad areas like Suncoast and it is further from the beaches. The upsides are: it is closer to downtown Fort Myers, no tolls in and out of Fort Myers, homes are cheaper than SE and SW, some newer homes and the new Del Prado extension is attractive.
