Buyers are returning, according to the data. Why not? Cape Coral still has its 400 miles of canals, the Caloosahatchee River, Gulf of Mexico, proximity to Naples, Fl and Fort Myers, Fl and desirable Southwest Florida climate to attract those seeking to purchase a piece of paradise at huge discounts when compared to a few short years ago.
