Hello Steve,

Southwest Florida would be a good place to invest your money. Anywhere along the west coast from Tampa to North Port (inbetween you will find Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton, and Englewood). There are some very good buys right now. I can send you some listings to look through via email. Please let me know if you are interested in viewing some properties.

All my best,
