Making the decision to invest in a highrise home is one that many individuals may consider due to their personal preferences, lifestyles, and financial means. If you’re looking in Southwest Florida, you should consider buying that highrise home in Bonita Springs, but not just because it’s pretty. Read on to learn 10 reasons why you should make Bonita Springs the choice for your highrise home purchase:
#1: Excellent Resale Value
No one wants to make a bad real estate investment. The U.S. has seen an 8.4% increase in home values, and Bonita Springs is not an exception to that rule with an increase of 11.4% from last year. Market trends show that the median property value is on the rise in Bonita Springs, and in January 2016, it reached the highest values it’s been in the last five years with no signs of slowing down. Prior to that, Bonita Springs has enjoyed steady growth — proving that it’s likely you won’t just break even, you may be able to make money on your investment if you decide to sell.
#2: Bonita Springs Brings Options
Currently, Bonita Springs is in a neutral market, meaning that there are options, but you won’t get stuck in a bidding war due to low inventory. Similarly, you also aren’t going to lose money investing in Bonita Springs because of too high inventory. A neutral market is ideal for both the seller and the buyer because it’s not a high pressure environment for either party. And who wants to make a massive investment with added stress? I can’t think of anyone!
#3: Potential for Growth
Much of southwest Florida real estate market has been in a period of stabilization. The great part about that is now that the market has had a chance to relax, it’s in a prime position to grow. Zillow projects home values will continue to increase by 3.6% within the next year.
#4: The View
Situated right off of Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, Bonita Springs is home to unspoiled, jaw-dropping, beautiful beaches, like Barefoot Beach and Lover’s Key — and what better way to take in those gorgeous sunsets than from the lanai of your own highrise home? Highrise homes offer spectacular views that you just can’t get when you’re on the ground. You won’t need to escape to paradise when you own a highrise home in Bonita Springs. You will live there.
#5: Low Inventory of Foreclosures
As the US has continued to recover from the market crash, foreclosed homes have become a more common part of a home search. The good thing is that the streets around town aren’t plagued by unsightly foreclosures — Bonita Springs has relatively few foreclosure listings. Market trends show that both foreclosures and bank owned properties have decreased over the last year. Although you may still be able to find a bargain with a foreclosed home, you won’t be driving past a slew of dilapidated homes in Bonita Springs.
#6: Easy Living
Obviously, whether or not a highrise condo is for you is based on personal preference. However, part of what makes owning a highrise home an attractive option is that they provide you with easy living — no need for lawn maintenance in a highrise! The grounds are typically well manicured and taken care of with a nominal maintenance fee. You will only need to worry
about putting your personal touch on the interior of your home.
#7: Amenities Galore
Many highrise homes, such as Florencia in The Colony, include excellent amenities: a fitness center, pools, security, golf courses, and more. And it’s not just luxury highrise homes that offer these amenities. There are a number of affordable highrise options on the market right now that still provide convenient amenities to its residents. It’s worth mentioning that highrise homes that offer security really offer an additional value as they are great not just for personal safety, but for the safety of your home and belongings should you choose to travel. Beyond that, Bonita Springs is also a great social community, with restaurants, shopping and, of course, the beach!

#9: Low Crime
As I mentioned previously, most highrise homes offer security, which provides peace of mind and comfort in your home. While no community is exempt from crime, Bonita Springs enjoys a relatively low crime rate. Trulia reports the crime risk is relatively low, with most of the police activity being community policing (simple area checks/patrol) and traffic violations.
Because highrise living involves living very closely to your neighbors, many condos promise inhabitants the ability to enjoy their space in peace and quiet. People are respectful of these bylaws not simply because they are required to abide by them, but also because highrise living is community living. You will run into your neighbors at the pool, on the golf course, or in the fitness center. And with all of the activities that Bonita Springs has to offer, you will likely see your neighbors in the hallways or in the elevators, and because of that, it’s important to keep the peace and maintain the neighborhood community-feeling of the highrise.
