4 Reasons to Build your Next Home in Cape Coral
Think Naples and Bonita Springs are the only places in Southwest Florida where you can enjoy a fun yet luxurious lifestyle? Think again! Cape Coral is increasingly becoming the go-to spot for singles, families, and retirees. Not yet convinced Cape Coral is the place for you to enjoy all of the sun, golf, and pleasantries that our area has to offer? Consider this:
#1 Cape Coral is growing fast
In fact, it’s THE fastest growing cities in America, according to Forbes. “We went from top of lists for fastest-growing cities to the top of the list of cities with most foreclosures," says Connie Barron, spokesperson for the city. Close to a decade, later things are looking up again, and all of those new residents can’t be wrong. According to the article in Forbes, people are being drawn to the Cape by 335 days a year of sunshine, safety, and low taxes. We couldn’t agree more!
#2 Unemployment is down, and families are moving in
It’s not all retirees coming to Cape Coral, of course. Unemployment is down in the city, a great sign for everyone. The workforce is rising again, according to U.S Department of Labor statistics and that’s putting more and more families into homes. Because the job market is getting better and Cape Coral has so many three bedrooms / two bathroom homes available, the entire area is becoming more family-friendly. More new homes mean more new grocery stores, restaurants, and Friday night activities...which creates more new jobs and the cycle continues!
#3 It's Consistently one of the Safest Cities
While just about all of Florida may be sunny, not all of it is safe. That’s what makes Cape Coral truly special- it's a crime rating. The city is well below the state average and even below the national average, as well. According to crime statistics, it rates extremely well for both violent crimes and property crimes like home break-ins. Neighboring cities can’t boast the same; it’s just one of the reasons Cape Coral is so great!
#4 There's Actually a Lot to Do
Living in Cape Coral is anything but boring. Whether you like kayaking in natural rivers, golfing just miles from your home (or right in your own backyard!), or experiencing the downtown nightlife, this city has it all. That’s not even including the yearly festivals and events like Oktoberfest, the Burrowing Owl Festival, Red White & Boom, and so much more.
