Lehigh property up 95%

Values up 27 percent across Lee County

Property values in Lehigh Acres were up 95 percent in 2004 based on figures released by Lee County.

"It's the strangest, strongest year I've ever seen," said Ken Wilkinson, the county property appraiser who released the numbers Tuesday.

"Five or six years ago, you couldn't give those Lehigh lots away. Now you can't touch them for less than $30,000 — and the values all over the county just keep going up."

Other areas of Lee County showed sizable gains including 49.4 percent in Cape Coral and 28.8 percent in Ft. Myers.
