With prices continuing to rise in Southwest Florida, we found a unique sweet spot that continues to climb in price and are limited (location location location) - Cape Coral waterfront homes. There is a solid supply of inventory today, but we don't see this lasting. As waterfront lots are scarce, we saw only 72 permits pulled on direct access water lots in 2017.
