According to a recent RealityTrac report, North Fort Myers has been identified as one of the top-15 retirement hotspots in the country, as well as being an ideal place for real estate investors to focus on for long-term value creation. 

RealityTrac analyzed factors such as the percentage of residents who were above the retirement age, rental capitalization rates, and home appreciation. With numerous popular communities available throughout the city, North Fort Myers is quickly becoming the most popular place in Florida, if not the nation, for both Northerners escaping winter’s chill as well as permanent residents who are looking for a relaxing, tropical lifestyle year-round.

If boating is your passion, you’ll fit right in. Bordered by the cool waters of the Caloosahatchee River, North Fort Myers is an incredibly popular location for avid water-goers. It is home to the North Star Yacht Club, a luxury, waterfront community of high-rise condominiums, as well as desirable boating neighborhoods such as the Admiralty Yacht Club, Waterway Estates, Buttonwood Harbor, The Yacht Club Colony, and many more.

But you can’t forget about the golf, either – when not on the crystal blue waters of the Gulf or the surrounding lakes and rivers, residents of North Fort Myers enjoy some of the best golfing in the entire state. Courses with lush, rolling fairways, flawlessly smooth greens, immaculate landscaping, and clubhouse atmospheres that rival that of a luxury resort are the norm here, and many have been designed by the world’s finest course architects to be ideal for golfers of all age and skill level. Play the fabulous Heron’s Glen course, a highly-rated challenge that features beautiful lakes, pristine bunkers, and crisp tee boxes – or, make a casual game with some friends at the incredible Gordon Lewis-designed Magnolia Landing championship course. No matter what you love to do, the rating speaks for itself – North Fort Myers is the place to be.
