Good afternoon. I would be more than happy to assist you with finding a home. My company also handles property management. Port Orange in whole is a desirable area with many new restaurants and shops entering our community. There is a lot of new home construction also taking place so our city is growing. Regarding rental potential, properties in the Spruce Creek High School district are even more desirable. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks. cherylj.realtor@gmail.com

I'm loking to sell my home in the next few months. Asking price $95,000.
It is on Ruth Street Port Orange. 1 mile to the beach and right off the main rd. Dunlawton avenue;
shopping restaurants, gyms parks galore.
There are many long term residents in my neighborhood; but a good mix of rentals too.
It would probably rent for $900 -$950.

The Willow Run area of Port Orange has affordable housing in your price range, centrally located and is a good rental area and NO HOA fees. Another area would be Summer Trees however this area has an HOA but the fees are minimal. Let me know if I can further assist you with your search.

Hi GM,

Sorry about the delay in answering - was a busy day yesterday and today will be too.

Over 40% of the single family residential properties in Port Orange in that price range are foreclosure related. It is an excellent area to purchase a rental - here is a fairly recent article from Money Magazine:


Here is another very useful link. It lets you compare areas and market rents:

We own rental property in this market and have put together a team to assist small and big investors with insurance, lawn care, pools, and maintenance, etc. Our KW company has agents and brokers who are large and small investors, so plenty of free advise is available.

It sounds as if you may be buying now, and renting until you can come here and live full or part time. An excellent strategy. I have some solid ideas about where to buy in Port Orange based on educational attainment levels, school quality, and income levels - these create long term stability in neighborhoods which reduces your risk.

It appears you need to work with someone who is connected to the investor community, has many years of experience in foreclosure related property, has experience with out of state buyers, and can help you put together a plan. We are your one stop shop for Port Orange Real Estate - and the seller pays us - not you.

Thanks for your interest in Port Orange.

Hi G.M.
I lived in the North End of Boston during the early nineties and moved here from Plum Island, MA. I would be happy to assist you with your real estate needs in the greater Daytona Beach area. I just helped a couple from Mansfield, MA purchase a home for 140K in the area so I am quite familar with your price range. I can even help you secure a long term tenant for the house after you close.

Feel free to look at homes on my website or to give me a call if I may be of assistance. The market is heating up here right now, especially with investors. It would probably be beneficial to set you up with an automated email that lets you know about the best homes as soon as they become available.

Best of luck in your real estate endeavors!

Hi Kandi,
Thank you for your answer. I have visited the Port Orange twice and met with few agents, however I did not get a convincing answer regarding the preferred rental area. I was hoping someone’s answer would be more helpful. We would like to find out what is our best option; buying a home around $100,000 rent it out for the next 4-5 years and buy up another one closer to our retirement time or just buy and hold the one we would retire, in that case we could go up to $130000. I will come back to Port Orange in few months maybe then we can talk in more details. I already have an automated listing coming.

Determining a geographical area in Port Orange is difficult without know more of your needs but a majority of the homes in your price range are going to be east of I-95. I would consider the epicenter of town is close to the intersection of I-95 and Dunlawton so I would assume that area will only get more established in the next 4-5 years. As for homes, In general, the newer homes in Port Orange are closer to I-95 and as you move east the homes get older. Perhaps focusing on a rental in a school district may be a good place to start considering future tenants wants? Some highly desirable school districts with homes in your price range would be Sweetwater Elementary and Spruce Creek Elementary. If you would like a list of homes available in these areas please feel free to give me a call (386) 295-5868 or shoot me an email (AaronFSalvador@gmail.com)
