Cape Coral was founded in 1957. Real estate developers Leonard and Jack Rosen purchased a 103-square-mile (270 km2) tract known as Redfish Point for $678,000 in that year and, in 1958, began development of the city as a master-planned, pre-platted community. With over 400 miles (640 km) of navigable waterways, Cape Coral has more miles of canals than any other city on earth. In its early years, Cape Coral was known as a community with many retired residents. This changed with a population and construction boom in the 1990s, which brought in younger families and professionals. Twenty percent of the population are seasonal residents. Nowadays, the city has a wide variety of businesses, retail, and restaurants on its major arteries.

These Islands have all the wonder that an Island Paradise can offer but is easily accessible by a bridge. Apart from the notorious history as a Pirate’s den, Sanibel’s had several periods of light inhabitation until May 1963, when a causeway linking Sanibel and Captiva to the mainland was opened, resulting in an explosion of growth. The city then put in new restrictions on development; these were challenged by developers, with no results. Currently, the only buildings on the island taller than two stories date before 1974, and there are no fast food or chain restaurants allowed on the island except those which were on the island before the laws were enacted. This limitation on development has had a direct effect on the Island’s Real Estate Values, keeping them durable, even during the toughest of economic times.
