I am moving to the cape coral / fort myers area soon- just not sure where.
I come from NY (Long Island)-and am weary of the pace, weather, cost of living etc.
I have a few questions: Is the san Carlos park area of FM decent?
what are the nice things about each area (CC vs. FM) that you can tell me about? what are the draw backs?
I am married with grown kids but still working as a nurse so I will most likely be able to get a job - my husband is a hardware computer technician and AV technician- what is his shot at getting work there?
Is cape coral a foreclosure "ghosttown"- someone told me that.........
We are really looking for a nice place to live, not too expensive as we can outright buy a house under 200K, and that I can actually know my neighbors..........what area would you suggest ? All opinions are welcome and would be appreciated.
I moved to Ft.Myers from NY 8 yrs ago. Grew up on LI. The best thing I can say about Ft. Myers is the weather is great. I would like to move from where I am (The reason I say this is because I live in a "gated" community. Too many restrictions for me, but you may value that type of thing.) I want more land. Overall, Cape Coral and Ft.myers are nice areas...but certain sections you would look to avoid, just like you would
on LI.
Getting a job is #1. Don't move, and don't buy until you've got that! Jobs are scarce all over the nation. The Cypress Lake Estates section could work for you. It's an older section of single-family homes, that has rentals
and sales definitely under $200K. Close to the hospitals and lots of medical care facilities. Close to everything else too. shopping beaches parks schools churches
I'm sorry can't tell you about San carlos park..but like I said every place has its certain sections. Cape coral has lots of ex NYers. And that is my 2cents. Good luck!
