This is an appeal to everyone in Bonita Springs but especially to my own grown children, their friends and anyone else who plans on raising a family in the city Bonita Springs, Florida. For the record, my children have purchased homes with the intention of raising their family in the 34135. They don’t realize it but they are at a very important crossroads of what could make or break life in the city of Bonita springs for young families. The future growth of our local economy and the retention of young families actually depends upon it.

Verifying Bonita Springs Homeowner Association Fees Periodically, I get an email with a great question I end up writing a reply to that should be on my website for future Googlers.  Today’s real estate question: Is there a web site we can go to, to get HOA (home owner association) fees and what they cover?  It’s important information in the Bonita Springs/Estero Florida area because we are 75%+ gated and deed restricted.  You need to protect yourself and your Bonita Springs real estate investment going in.
