Wondering About the Weather?
Southwest Florida has perhaps the best overall annual climate in the sunshine state. The most popular time of year is October through May, when there are warm days and cool nights. The average annual rainfall is just over 52 inches with June to September being the rainy season. During the rainy season, an afternoon shower rolls in, rains for about an hour, and then a wonderful evening follows.

Buy Now, Retire Later
These days, many 40-year-olds are already thinking about how and where they want to live when they retire according to Business Week, Money Magazine and other investment journals. And so while not ready to retire yet, many of our clients are making the wise move to buy now while prices and interest rates are low. They enjoy a vacation retreat and investment vehicle now, and are set for retiring to their vacation property later. Our newsletter issue Ten Years from Now illustrates how the math works, even for those financing a portion of the purchase. And many of our clients put their vacation home in a rental program to cover carrying costs (minimally). This post on our Southwest Florida real estate blog is an overview for buyers thinking about renting their future vacation home.

Fort Myers Beach real estate on Estero Island consists primarily of condos, hotels, and some single family homes directly on the Gulf of Mexico’s beautiful white sand beaches. On the back side (called the back bay) of Fort Myers Beach, you’ll find both contemporary new properties and charming “old Florida” style homes and condos, some on saltwater canals with boat dockage.
