Single family home building continues to be strong in Cape Coral. Even after Irma in September, when only 88 single family home permits were issued, the city ended 2017 with 1661 new permits. In August, the city issued 216 permits, which was the first time since October 2006 that the city surpassed 200 permits.
Duplexes also were popular with 123 permits issued in 2017; one of the highest numbers ever recorded !
Commercial new construction permits and addition/remodel permits also trended up. New construction accounted for 24 permits and 162 remodel/addition.
These were the highest annual totals since 2008!
We still have hundreds of vacant lots for sale! Come on down and let me help you build your dream home.
Over the years, I have worked with many Realtors; but Diane stands out! She knows her market, loves her job & it shows. Her blatantly honest comments kept me entertained and informed. We loved her FREE Boat Tour! Such a unique city - you need a Captain like her to fill you in on all recent changes. She is a tough negotiator - got us a better price on the vacant lot than we thought AND introduced us to a quality builder who is getting ready to build our dream home. We highly recommend her!Roxanne & Robert Bruegging
