North Fort Myers, FL Real Estate News

This is the ceiling of a home I recently inspected. The previous homeonwer fancied himself a roofer and thought county permits were a waster of money. Metal roofing is quite expensive and when installed properly can last a lifetime. When done incorrectly, can ruin a home very quickly. I walked the roof first and noticed the DIY installed the metal roof backwards, allowing water to run straight in at every seam. The entire home was rife with moisture stains which tested as active leaks. This is an example of the deterioration caused by a poorly installed roof.

Not many places in Southwest Florida can offer vicinity to the city, properties with over 10 acres and suitable for horses.This area is one of the very best of Fort Myers Equestrian Real Estate Of course there are other areas.

Some five weeks I got an unusual contact through Activerain. The potential buyer wanted to relocate from Pine Island to North Fort Myers. At first it seem easy enough but the more I read his requirements, the more I realized that it was going to be a challenge.His wife and him needed a property with over mostly cleared and elevated 5 acres, a decent size home with at least 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms,and above all well water which was pure enough to grow bonsai trees. Luckily I had worked already in that part of Fort Myers and knew where to look.They also needed a large garage where the bonsai grower could teach his trade and sell some of his trees and other related items.                                              The farm after the rain end of September This business provides you at ...

I was recently showing properties to clients seeking at least five acres and a nice home.  They preferred the areas of North Fort Myers or Pine Island.  In North Fort Myers, I lcated several properties that fit all of their criteria, including budget.  Although I enjoy "Island Living," I have to say that there is a strong appeal in the quiet and beauty of "Country Living" as well.  These Country properties are all within easy distance to "41" and the City and all of its amenities, yet you can live a life that may include horses.     LLoyd NicholsRight Choice Realty LLCRealtorlloydn@aol.com cell: 239-810-2980Fax: 239-463-4826home office: 239-463-5217Active Rain Blog: http://activerain.com/lloydn Website: http://www.mlsouthwestfloridahomes.comWebsite Blog: http://ftmyershomesandgardens.bl...

Some times the voice of the local community can be heard, and when it's heard good things can happen.  Case in point several months ago I wrote the following letter to Lee County Commissioner Tammy Hall: Tammy, Following up from last nights NFMCPP meeting, when I mentioned Linda Ellis, a NFM property owner who has an interest in the commercial property at 18941 N. Tamiami Trail, NFM she attended our last NFM design & review board meeting 3/4/08 voiced her concerns of the adult sexually oriented located across the street from her property. That the location of the adult business has caused her to lose a potential tenant on her vacant property due to the adult business located across the street. Mrs Ellis has been in contact with Rick Roberts, Lee County code enforcement who recommended t...

ECHO ( Education Concerns for Hunger )This place is located in North Fort Myers and if you haven't been there it really is an amazing place.  They are a nonprofit organization and they develop ways to grow food in 3rd world countries.  I'm not sure exactly how they do everything, it is very scientific but they do cross pollination a lot.  They developed large trees that grow extremely fast and can grow in booth dry and wet conditions.  One leaf off this tree contains more potassium than a whole banana!  They have a plant that looks like a small maple tree that the leaves taste like raspberry, a grapefruit tree with grapefruits the size of watermelons.  They actually let you buy many of these plants there and the money goes to charity.  They grow plants on roof tops, they run dirty water...
