What a beautiful place to live! Port Charlotte has a lot to offer! A real tropical paradise with both the Myakka and Peace Rivers flowing through it, this place really rocks!!! For those looking for waterfront homes at prices well below what most waterfront homes cost, Port Charlotte has a network of canals that lead out to the Myakka River. From there it is a short trip down the Myakka into Charlotte Harbor and from there out into the Gulf of Mexico. If you are looking to relocate to the area, be sure to give us a call. We are here for all of your real estate needs.

We have all been hearing about the bursting real estate bubble.  Well, it is a matter of perspective.  We had quite a ride the past few years, and homeowners (and Realtors I might add) came to expect the double digit annual increases in the value of their home.  Now that we are back to a more "normal" market, Sellers and Realtors are singing the blues.  It is true, that if you bought your home in the past two years and are now trying to sell it, you are probably going to get less than you paid for it.  However, if you purchased your home prior to that, you will probably still see some appreciation.  On the other hand, if you are a buyer, this market is great news for you. You can certainly buy more for less than you could even a year ago.  The real estate market here in the Punta Gorda,...

Port Charlotte is a wonderful area to live in if you are a boater! The numerous canals offer you the opportunity to have a waterfront home on one of the beautiful canals that connect directly to the Myakka River. From the Myakka River, you can go directly to Charlotte Harbor and then on to the Gulf of Mexico.By living on one of the canals, you and your home have more privacy than you would if you were directly on the Gulf and you save on the price of your home too! And imagine, fishing right from your own backyard!!! Florida, a little bit of Heaven right here on Earth!

I just purchased a home for investment in Port Charlotte, FL. It was built in 1960 and needs a little updating (cabinets, flooring, A/C, etc). It has three bedrooms and one bathroom and is in a nice neighborhood. I just closed last month and paid $90,000 for it. I figure when all said and done I'll have another $15,000 into it for a total of $105,000. I plan to rent it out for a year or so and see how it goes. Right now North Port/Port Charlotte is the least expensive area from Tampa to Naples (which is SW Florida). We are about 20-30 minutes from the beach. So I think that I've made a pretty good investment on this house.Which brings me to my question...where is everybody investing their money and where do your investors come from? A lot of our investors are coming from the Miami, FL a...
