Is this a nice area of Ft. Myers to live in? Are there flooding problems there? Just spent a few days scoping out houses in Cape Coral and are now preparing to do same for Fort Myers in a few weeks.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think there is to much of a flooding problem it is a more rural area of Fort Myers(east Ft. Myers). After Fay there was issues with the water in Lehigh but heard nothing about Buckingham. Go to Google maps and punch up Buckingham Rd. Fort Myers FL. or Cemetery Rd. and click street view, any roads outlined in blue you can view and you will see some nice areas with land around them. It would be a bit of a drive if you have to work but the quiet evenings would probably be worth it.

My dad has been thinking of moving here too. He said something about finding topography maps that indicate elevation onlice. That may help you see where they flood.

Default check out Buckingham

Check out Olympia Pointe if you're interested in surrounding areas of Ft. Myers. This community is conveniently located to I-75, Southwest Florida International Airport and shopping. Great clubhouse amenities.

Buckingham is a very rural area and has been designated a rural community so that won't change anytime soon but it's also part of the charm of the area. As far as flooding, it depends what you think of as flooding. If you're worried about your home having to be dried out and buying new furniture every year you're probaly ok in that area. But if you are referring to just having standing water on your property for extended amounts of time than yes that happens often but not just in Buckingham but throughout Lee County. Southwest FL in general is just very low lying and has alot of rain, there will be times (particularly in a rural community without storm drains and sewers) that you wont be able to mow your lawn because either it's under water or just to wet to get a mower through it.
