A lot of people ask what they can buy at certain price ranges in the SW Florida real estate market, so today we thought we’d pick a price range and report on that. We answer the question, “What does $250,000 buy in Lee County real estate market?”
We logged into MLS but you can do the same at www.LeeCountyOnline.com and search like Realtors do and find the same information.
What Does $250,000 Buy in Lee County Real Estate Market?
In Cape Coral we spotted a brand new home in SW Cape Coral. It is listed for $245,900 and has 2,180 sq ft. It has 5 bedrooms 3 baths and is on an oversized lot.
We then decided to see if we could find any waterfront homes with gulf access in this price range. We found 6. We found a home with 1,588 sq ft and a 10,000 lb boat lift with a spa in SW Cape Coral with gulf access. We found another gulf access home with boat lift and a pool. It has 1,436 sq ft and a single car garage. It is 10 minutes to the river by boat.
Next we decided to look at Fort Myers Beach and see what’s available for $250k. We did find a small single family home for $219,000. It’s a 1 bedroom, 1 bath home with 630 sq ft. but hey, it’s at the beach. When we searched for condos we found 15 in that price range. Some ranged from small 1 bedroom condos at Pink Shell with great investment potential to larger 1 bedroom units along the beach with greater size. Manufactured housing opened up 7 more homes at Fort Myers Beach and many were waterfront.
In Fort Myers we found 69 single family homes listed up to $250,000. For instance, we found a 3 bedroom, 2 bath lakefront home in Botanica Lakes with 1,782 sq ft for $240,500. It was built in 2012
As you go further south into Estero and Bonita the pickings get a little slimmer. We found 33 single family homes available. We found a cute 2 bedroom + den in the Villages at Country Creek for $249,900. It has 1,382 sq ft, a 2 car garage, and has been completely updated with stainless steel appliances.
None of the listings shown today are our listings. We just wanted to show you what your money will buy at this price range and show you how you can search and find these kinds of properties.
Our website allows you to see the home on the map so you can see exactly where it is and what it is close to, like shopping or water. You can view all the photos of each home in the photo gallery. You can setup a showing request when you see something you like, or find out how much it will cost with the mortgage calculator.
You can also add homes to your favorites to easily find them again or check on their status, or save your search and have the system email you when new homes enter the market or when an owner changes their price.
You can search all price ranges and all areas, not just the $250k example we did today. As Realtors we get to see a lot of homes each week. If you’ve been searching awhile and having a hard time making sense of it all, you’re not alone.
Sometimes it pays just to sit down with a good agent who listens to what you’re looking for and they can point you in the right direction for you. Ellis Team agents listen and are experts at finding what you want. Give us a call at 239-489-4042 and we’ll be happy to sit down and discuss the market and homes that may interest you.
If you’re not ready to meet just yet, that’s fine too. Simply search away at www.LeeCountyOnline.com and let us know when something catches your eye. You might not be ready today, but someday you will be, and this site is perfect for those who want to see what’s out there and what is possible.
Good luck and Happy House Hunting!
