Another day….another report recognizing the growing momentum of the Fort Myers-Cape Coral real estate market. The Trulia Metro Movers Report - Fall 2011 ranked the Fort Myers-Cape Coral market 5th nationally in its Metro Movers Index. The Metro Movers Index is the ratio for a given market of where Americans are looking to move to vs. move away from. The data was culled from page views on Trulia's website. Our region scored a 2.09 on the Trulia Index for a 5th place ranking nationally. The Trulia data supports user trending on our popular Greater Fort Myers website which has had heavy traffic throughout 2011 including the typically slower summer months. Visitors to our site are heavily dominated by the Midwest and Northeast regions. After Florida, the top five states whose residents are visiting our website are: New York; Ohio; Illinois, Massachusetts and MIchigan. No surprise that these are all cold weather states with blistery, snowy winters. With several million baby-boomer generation Americans retiring each year, the ongoing interest in Southwest Florida is both predictable and understandable. The strong draw to the Fort Myers region is driven by a number of factors including tropical weather, rock-bottom prices, Gulf beaches, year-round golfing and boating, spring training baseball and a modern international airport.
