Homes Near FGCU - College Housing

Since Florida Gulf Coast University opened its doors just a few years ago parents have been investing in real estate in the Estero and Bonita Springs area to house their student.  The real estate boom in the 2004-2006 years curbed investing by FGCU parents but real estate prices have rolled back.  On top of that, interest rates have lowered to unbelievable levels, again.  Investing in college town real estate and student housing is affordable again. 

If you have a son or daughter that will be attending Florida Gulf Coast University now is the time to begin the search for housing.  Incredible real estate values have become available near the school.  Communities such as Stoneybrook, San Carlos Park, Grandezza Golf & Country Club, Bella Terra and Osprey Cove have all had property prices dip into the $100,000's.  While San Carlos Park can offer homes in the mid $100,000's most gated communities are offering availability of condominiums and attached villas under $200,000 depending upon inventory and availability.  Each of these communities is no more than 15 minutes from FGCU, Southwest Florida International Airport, Miromar Outlets and Gulfcoast Towne Center.

Should you be thinking of investing in Estero Real Estate for your FGCU student, know that if the home you choose is a short sale it may take longer than anticipated to close.  Be sure to allow enough time to successfully negotiate and close the home prior to classes starting.
