Buy as close to the water as you can afford. Waterfront always goes up the fastest!
There are many short sale and foreclosure properties currentlu on the market in Port Charlotte and North Port. It's difficult to project the actual numbers because homes are constantly coming on and going off the market. We would estimate there are more short sales currently on the market than foreclosures and when these homes move into foreclosure status the foreclosure numbers will increase significantly.
Here's an examle of a typical foreclosure in this locaton:
2006 construction, 3/2/2 pool, approx. 2000 sf, and priced under $160,000.
This is a wonderful time to be investigating purchasing options in this location. And on the other hand, no time to be SELLING.
We hope this is helpful
