Naples, Florida is located on Florida’s southwest coast, set along the sun drenched beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Naples is famous for its shopping, dining and many challenging golf courses. It is also an entry point to the tropical wilderness of The Everglades. With calm seas and great beaches Naples is a popular destination for all beach lovers, with adventure sports enthusiasts being particularly well catered for.

Buying a prime property in an established location with solid rental demand is the key to investment. Land value is worth very little if developers can build on the vast array of swamp land surrounding your own development.

Located quite close to Miami, only 108 miles away or two hours drive north west this is a solid investment zone with beautiful beaches and a host of property options.

But foreclosures aren’t just about the lower end of the market. For around £830,000 you can scoop up a luxury 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom Mediterranean style villa with pool, spa and manicured gardens, all with sweeping views and high quality fixtures and fittings.

A 3 or 4 bedroom detached family home can be yours for around £127,000 in any of the newly built developments along the waterfront, again these are foreclosure deals.

Outside of the repossessions, you can expect to pay around £200,000 for a spacious 4 bedroom property in King’s Lake, Valencia Country Club, Valencia Lakes or Autumn Woods developments.

If you’ve got the money to spend the top end luxury market in Naples will not disappoint. £13.5million can buy you an outrageously lavish movie star mansion in beachfront Port Royal, complete with heated pool and wet bar, state of the art A/V system, ornate gardens and views over the Gulf of Mexico.

If the cheap Naples Florida property is not your idea of a good investment maybe consider other overseas property investment including something a little closer to home like Turkey, Cyprus, or as far away as the Caribbean or Brazil.
