IMO, these two areas are very similar in so many respects that comparing "apples to apples" one would find that these home values are nearly identical.
It all boils down to what you mean "better property value". On the average equilivant houses will normally cost less in North Port, however, many of these will have to depend on well water for the house and require maintenance on the treatment system, many of the roads are in very poor repair, while the majority, not all, but the majority of Port Charlotter is on county water system. There are many homes in the Port Charlotte area with saltwater access while very few in North Port actually have private boating access to the harbor and beyond, even is they do, most require a much longer and more expensive boat ride, (think of the cost of gas at todays prices), The value of a property always boils down to what is importarnt to the buyer and a very personal choice. I will be more than happy to show you around the area and let you decide for yourself which would be the best value for you. Just contact me and I will me happy to set an appointment to show you around and go over deatils that may be important to you.
