In a city of approximately 155,000 residents, Cape Coral is home to less than 20 gated communities. This limited number of gated communities is significantly different from neighboring Southwest Florida cities like Fort Myers, Estero and Naples where gated communities dominate the residential landscape.
Prospective buyers searching for available homes in Cape Coral’s gated communities continue to be among the most active on our Southwest Florida real estate website. Many buyers appreciate the deed restrictions that are in place in the Cape’s gated communities that can protect property values and limit neighborhood disturbances. Buyers also welcome the centralized amenities like fitness centers, community pools and activities often found in gated communities.
Cape Coral’s gated communities are also served by the city’s municipal utilities, eliminating angst over future assessments that impacts many non-gated sections of the city. Residents enjoy strolling through the neighborhood as many of the gated communities have sidewalks and other recreation paths and the gated aspect restricts non-resident pass-through automobile traffic.
