Naples Beachfront Homes

Naples offers 12 miles of beachfront homes – with single family homes (mostly estate homes) at an average sales price of $7M+. The activity level in the form of number of sales here is more important than the ASP, because of the vast differential in these ultra-luxury homes prices.

Bonita Springs

Bonita Springs Single Family Homes - Beachfront Cottages

Bonita Springs offers a 4-mile beachfront stretch that is mostly single-family homes – divided between the Barefoot Beach development (a private community) and the Hickory Blvd.-Bonita Beach area and known for its relaxed and quiet lifestyle. Average sales price $3.M+.

With only a total of 125 beachfront home sites, the supply will always be low and currently the demand is high. 50% of these homes were old Florida beach cottages that have been torn down and replaced with new luxury homes. In the last 4 years approximately 7 new homes/per year have been under new construction – so pretty soon it will be very hard to find a simple, charming beach cottage.

Fort Myers Beach FL

Fort Myers Beach area is a 6-mile long island and favored by buyers for its young spirit and very active and lively lifestyle. If you’re looking for a true beach cottage, this would be the right place to search. Average sales price $1.4M+.
