Waterfront Homes as Investment

Investment Value: Of course most waterfront homes will have a higher resale value than most other homes in Cape Coral, but keep your choices in mind when considering the resale value of your canal location. A direct access property located closer to the mouth of the river will appreciate more quickly and appeal to more buyers in the long run. Read more about the different canals below. 

Cape Coral Homes on Canals

When deciding on the perfect waterfront home, keep in mind that there are many different types of canals in, including saltwater canals, freshwater canals, preserves, intersecting canals, and some that offer Gulf access.

Cape Coral Gulf Access Canals

Gulf Access If you are a boater, a gulf access home  may be important to you. If so, keep in mind that some properties are a quick five minute trip to the river that leads to the Gulf of Mexico, while others may take an hour or more to arrive. The closer or further down river you are located, the more quickly you'll be on the open waters and out of the 5 mile per hour "No Wake" speed restrictions. More choices to think of include:

Direct/Sailboat access home: No bridges, locks or lifts to worry about. This is the least restrictive type of access and is quite important to the boat owner. If you own (or plan to buy) a sailboat, you'll need to check out the waterway more thoroughly. Just because a listing is direct access does not mean that it is suitable for a sailboat. There are only a few areas that truly have sailboat access, including proper water depth, and obstruction free. For a sailboat, you'll want to be on a DEEP DIRECT ACCESS canal.

Freshwater: Many freshwater canals lead to a lake or even a chain of freshwater lakes. If you would rather steer clear of the ocean, choosing property on a freshwater canal may be ideal for you. Again, if you are a boater it is important to be aware of where your canal leads to. Although most do lead to beautiful lakes, there are a few canals that really don't go anywhere that is suitable for a large boat. If your interests lie in bass fishing or canoeing, these winding canals still offer an excellent way to experience waterfront property at a lower overall price. Our realty team is familiar with the various waterways and will be sure to steer you in the right direction, according to your needs.

Canal Widths: Along with freshwater or saltwater choices, our canals also come in different widths, which provide a variety of water views. Canals range from 80 feet to over 200 feet in width. Some of the most beautiful also offer an intersecting view. The wider the canal, the better the view, so the wider canals are generally prices higher, as are the intersecting canals.
