Nicknamed the “City of Palms” as there are well over 2,000 lofty royal palm trees throughout the area, the trees were first planted along McGregor Boulevard by Thomas Edison. Once home to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford later moved next door to his mentor, and both homes are now historical sites in Fort Myers. Today, McGregor Boulevard is home to prime Fort Myers real estate exuding old Florida charm, some dating back to the early 1900’s.
Fort Myers Real estate is currently one of the 15 fastest growing areas in the southeast according to the U.S. Census Bureau. With more sunny days than anywhere else in the state, it is expected to become a major center for commerce, entertainment and outdoor activities along the west coast.
One of the larger areas in the state, one can consider real estate in Fort Myers Beach, North Fort Myers and Fort Myers. All three have their distinct personalities while offering plenty of housing possibilities.
In Fort Myers Beach, chose from quaint, gulf-view condos to beach houses with sand just outside your door. If golf is what you are looking for, look no further than Eagle Ridge, Fiddlesticks Country Club or Renaissance. Home to the country’s first solar powered community, Babcock Ranch will surely be a model for such future communities.
For nightlife and activities, you will want to visit the Fort Myers River District. Reminiscent to the Savannah River Walk (but on a smaller scale), you will enjoy exploring the area. From museums and galleries to local dining and nightlife, it has something for everyone. And you’ll want to see what special events and farmers market are being hosted throughout the year along the brick streets and cypress
Whether looking for a beach house, gated golf community or boating community, the options in Fort Myers real estate are endless, with new construction supporting the expected growth.
