Published on Saturday, January 03, 2015 by Land Century

Lehigh Acres FL land for sale is going at an extremely high rate. This once booming city saw its peak between 2000 and 2007 where the population skyrocketed. Between 2000 and 2010, more than 50,000 people moved to Lehigh Acres causing a population increase of 159%. While times have changed and the city is not building as many homes as it once was, there is still a lot of potential for land owners.

Lehigh Acres FL, Land for Everyone


You’ll find that there is a lot of land to be had in the city. Unfortunately, the economic boom caused the city to grow quickly and decline when the bust was seen. Not unique to Florida, this happened all across the country.

Nearly 25% of all houses in the city remain unoccupied; a result of the real estate crisis. Now, this same land can be purchased by anyone looking to invest in the city. After all, the housing market is soaring back at unseen rates and the city has been able to reclaim some of its former glory and finally see an upturn as a result.

Unemployment in the city is dropping and as a result, more people are looking to buy.

Lehigh Acres Florida vacant land opportunities are among the most popular. These are parcels of land where no structural buildings exist. However, vacant land may or may not come with city sewer and water. The land may need immense maintenance to clean up litter or other garbage that has been placed on the property.

What to do

Fort Myers is a couple hours away and has so many unique places to see. If you want a truly esoteric experience check out the Corkscrew Camp Sanctuary, the surroundings are eerie and mesmerizing. It’s famous for the wildlife and orchids it sustains.

The typical day often ends at the coconut point mall. Eating, shopping and settling in for an evening movie before heading home or tucking in for the night is just enough to finish off this little excursion. Only a portion of what you get with purchasing your next acreage in Florida.

The Ideal Opportunity
