The Data Is In And Fort Myers Ranks #2….

The rest of the country is learning what many of our residents already know: U.S. News & World Report released its 2019 rankings of the country’s top 100 metropolitan areas in which to retire – and in spot No. 2 was our very own Fort Myers!

The publication’s rankings pull data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and their own list of Best Hospitals, as well as a nationwide survey of both pre- and current retirees to judge each location on six criteria:

  • Desirability
  • Healthcare
  • Retiree taxes
  • Job market
  • Overall happiness
  • Housing affordability

And speaking of affordability, no other local community hits every mark on the list quite as well as Venetian Pointe by Zuckerman Homes. Our owners enjoy a 5-mile proximity to Fort Myers Beach, 2-mile proximity to Health Park Medical Center, gated entry, and a maintenance-free lifestyle with no CDD or flood insurance requirement.

Not to mention fully-customizable estate villas starting from $285K!
