New to Cape Coral /Fort Myers area and investing!

5 Replies

Hello Everyone! My name is Megan and I'm very much interested in flipping and wholesaling. I'm not sure where to start and I'm looking to become more educated and to network with other investors. I just moved to Fort Myers a few months ago and I see a lot of potential here. I'm curious about financing and the steps to get a good deal, preferably in Cape Coral. I've been reading through the different forums for tips and advice, which is very helpful. If anyone wouldn't mind providing me with any further guidance, it would be very much appreciated. 

Thank You,

Welcome to Sunny FL! I live in The Cape and have been investing in properties here for the last 2 years. I'll PM you and you can ask any questions.

Thanks Mark! I'll definitely take a look at them.

Hi Megan,

I'm a Realtor and investor in the Cape, live here too. Cape Coral definitely has good opportunity for investors. There's a real demand for both annual and seasonal rentals here, whatever the product: condo, SFR, duplex, etc. Seeing what I can get for rent for my home this season, I'm considering pitching a tent in my backyard and renting the place :)

Happy to help if you have any questions.
