Homes and Condos For Sale in Cape Coral
Please call us with any questions you may have. Cape Coral is very complex in many ways. The 400 miles of canals do not all lead to salt water and the Gulf. Some are fresh water canals. There are 2 large "Spreader" canals at the western most part of Cape Coral which lead to open waters. Many canals west of Santa Barbara lead to these main Spreader canals which lead to the Matlacha Bay or south to the Caloosahatchee River, which borders most of Cape Coral. Canals on the east side lead to the Caloosahatchee River if they are not fresh water canals. When you buy a waterfront property which is located near the center of Cape Coral, you will have an extended boat ride to get to open water. Cape Coral is called "Paradise" by its residents and it offers many canal front homes with boat access to the Gulf of Mexico. Combined with our sub-tropical climate you may find "Paradise" right here in SW Florida. Homes sell from $100,000 to $7,000,000.
