Estero, FL: growing by about 80 residents every week!

Estero is a small town in Lee County, Florida with a population of only 18,176 people. It’s main claim to fame is the Germain Arena, which is home to the Florida Everglades ice hockey team. The town is centered around the spring-fed Estero River, and is also home to Florida Gulf Coast University. It’s a lovely and relaxing place to visit and live and its residents boast about the peace and calm one can find on the nearby beaches and state park.

What to Know about Estero

While renters make up only 10.44 percent of the population in Estero, there is a 39 percent vacancy rate! This means there is a lot of opportunity to find apartments to rent! The median home cost, at $211,900, is a little higher than the national median. There are many homes, apartments and condo units available, so keep an open mind, and you’ll be able to find pretty much anything you’re looking for.

Be sure to bring along all the necessary paperwork. You’ll need your ID, credit history, proof of employment and any other items your landlord or broker may have requested. Be sure to check with them beforehand to make sure you don’t show up without the right stuff! It will save you time and energy in the long run. Although, with the high vacancy rate, there’s a good chance that realtors will be barking up your tree rather than the other way around. Still, it never hurts to make a good impression, so be sure to show up on time and have a happy, optimistic attitude about your search. 

Living the Good Life in Estero

Estero is a hidden gem in southwest Florida. It offers history, natural beauty and luxurious living conditions with a cost of living that isn’t as exorbitant as other areas in Florida. It has a small-town feel and a family-oriented vibe that makes it appealing for young parents or parents-to-be. There are many state parks and recreation areas that are popular for young and old alike. The Lighthouse Park Beach is a beautiful place to spend the day, and the Cape Coral Yacht Club is a great resource for boat lovers.

The area is known for its excellent schools and better-than-average healthcare facilities. It also has two big performing arts centers and a lot of shopping and great dining options. Top it all off with almost year-round sunshine and a number of biking paths, nature trails and golf courses, and its hard to find any fault with Estero! It also has a rich history and heritage. The Mound Key Archaeological State Park features ancient shell mounds that are made of bones, shells and old pottery pieces. It’s said to have been the center of ceremonies for the Calusa Indians and it definitely gives Estero a little bit of extra mystery and intrigue! There's also a number of outlet malls for great shopping and easy ways to get to the fascinating Florida Everglades, including soaring over them in a helicopter!

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
