Are you still looking? What price range? You will get more for your money in New Port Richey. I would be happy to do a search for you based on what is currently available that has a canal or similar. Do you want gulf access from your own canal? What price, how many rooms, bathrooms? Size?

Once I have that information, I will find you some homes and email you home brochures for homes that are good possibilities for you.

Sincerely,

Fred Strickroot

don't go into gulf harbors. the water system is horrible, the "private beach" is a joke I know, i've spent many a birthday party there. open gulf access is hard to find with the canals if you don't live way into the neighborhood. it used to be a great place to live, but now it's one big retirement community. i think i was the last generation to live in there! it's run down now. actually, pasco county as a whole is a dump now. you're better off going south into pinellas county.

Fris,

Good afternoon. While there have been several good answers below, for value and quality of life I would suggest my Coastal Community of Gulf Harbors. While maintaining a comparable knowledge well into the Clearwater area, besides a considerably lower tax base, we offer deep water Canals, a Private Yacht Club and Private Gulf front Beach.

As a Gulf Harbors Resident, Waterfront Specialist and Developer's Representative from 2000 to 2010, it would be my pleasure to assist you.

Fris,
I've just completed an inventory of single family homes and a few town homes, recent construction or older well maintained homes, from St Peter Beach to South Tarpon Springs. These are homes I have viewed, They are all big water view or wide canal. The list willl provide construction date, water feature and community. Prices will range from $500,000 to 2.1 Mill. The list will also allow you to identify the prevailing values in the communities. For instance, you are are looking for a $300,000 fixer upper, you may want to avoid the $900,0000 communities.

You sould consider sticking with a home closer to 200k to:

1. stay out of renter/investor areas as 150k and below are what people are buying to rent out

2. a 200k neighborhood is much nicer

3. will appreciate better

Contact me to see what a 200k 2nd home purchase with only 10% down and NO PMI payment would be, then at least you'll know your options.

Below are some of the best programs from A to Z available, including the all new Stated Income Alt Loans for Self Employed borrowers

After reviewing programs below, please email me at Steve@pro-option.com

Yes I checked Port Charlotte but most of the locations I viewed and conducted "Virtual street drive bys" of were in the $200k range and New Port Ritchey seems to have an abundance of homes in the the $100k range.

I don't want to spend $200k for a 2nd home if I can avoid it --- especially with so many going below $100

Have you considered a little further south? There are a lot of beautiful waterfront properties available in the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area, as well as one of the largest waterfront cities Cape Coral.

Cape Coral has over 500 miles of canals comprised of freshwater, lakefront, or gulf access. Enjoy easy boating around the Cape's chain of lakes, or a short ride to the Gulf of Mexico. Homes in the Cape Coral waterfront area range from below $100k for gulf access condos, to over $3,000,000 for pure luxury.

Cape Coral is among the leaders in the nation in both market recovery and future economic growth. Take a look at the Lee County market, you may find it to your liking.
