Fort Myers Real Estate has been on a wild ride. At one time we were the nations leader in real estate sales and new construction sales. Unfortunately a couple of short years later, we were the nations leader in foreclosures and job loss when the construction came to a screeching halt. However, what goes down must come up.

Realtor Magazine just released a new article placing the Fort Myers Cape Coral real estate market as  number two nation in the market behind Miami for recovery and price rebound. Naples and Punta Gorda also cracked the top ten. However, we are not out of the woods yet. Overall prices for homes sold in Lee County fell 3.5% in August while sales rose 2%.  But prices were still well above where they were a year ago. Here is the article with the list of the markets and how they rank.
