With the Florida real estate market in full swing in 2012 and buyers from all over the United States, Canada, UK, Germany, Italy and China coming to Southwest Florida to look for second homes from Naples to Cape Coral I wanted to talk about some of the great deals in gated communities. Gated communities make sense for many second home buyers that use the property only partially during the year as most of the gated communities in Florida that cater to second home buyers as primary home owners that live in these communities provide many of the services that you would have to get on your own if you were not living in a gated community such as weekly landscaping, pool servicing, inclusive internet, cable tv and phone packages, 24 hour security and amenities such as community playgrounds, pools, private bundled golf courses, clubhouses and much more. Here a summary of some gated communities in Southwest Florida that have homes priced exceptionally well in the under $200,000 price range and offer many of the amenities listed above.

One of my favorite communities is Sandoval in Cape Coral. There is a listing right now for a brand new to be completed 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom home listed for only $191,500 which is an exceptionally priced listing in Sandoval.

At the Cascades At Estero which is a 55+ community there are 3 properties currently listed below $200,000. The community features a fitness center, indoor and outside resort style pool and spa, several lighted tennis courts, bocce ball and community meeting rooms. Here are some properties currently for sale in this neighborhood:

At the Island Club at Corks in Estero which is located Located close to the airport, FGCU, the new Coconut Point Mall and lots of restaurants there are 3 properties currently listed for sale in between $150,000 and $175,000.
