Fort Pierce, St. Lucie County Real Estate

Fort Pierce has a diverse set of properties and homes for sale, from oceanfront condos to cozy suburban bungalows. Many of Fort Pierce’s neighborhoods are older and well established, avoiding the private golf and canal community structure of many other Floridian real estate markets.

These neighborhoods feature 1,000 to 2,000 square foot homes on variously sized plots, many with carport parking. These neighborhoods are also well-wooded with large stands of mature trees. Homes in these areas would make a perfect second, starter, or rental home, given their fantastic location and affordability.

Hutchinson Island has a more upmarket real estate selection, with modern metal roofed and lanai-pool homes. Private boat access is another feature of many of these properties.
