You didn't say how many bedrooms and baths you'll be needing. The majority of home in Charlotte county under $100,000 are 2 bedroom, there are some homes that have 3 bedrooms. But you really don't get much of a home in that price range anymore and the odds are the home will need substantial amounts of work. ... more

Hi Joanna,
Did our rental agent get in touch with you? Many of the condo rentals do not allow pets for tenants. There are 9 unfurnished rentals in your price range in the MLS right now in our area that allow pets. Most are single family homes, there is also a condo, a mobile home and a villa.

I will email the listings to you to look over. If I can help with anything else, let me know.

It is great to hear that you just got a new job at Fawcett in Venice. Yes, Venice has many wonderful places for rent as well as to build or buy, however, it is a 30 to 45 minute commute to Fawcett from that location depending on the traffice. It is a personal choice on which ever location you should choose. Personally, I would chose an area closer to work. Some of the areas that I would consider first would be, Port Charlotte of course, Deep Creek, Punta Gorda, North Port, Bobcat Trail and others in an area closer to work especally with the price of gas now. But as I said to start with this is a highly personal choice and these are only my ideas. I will be more than happy to help you get settled in any area that you would lile, just contact me.

Phyllis Koch answered:
Certain towns, cities, counties, "deed-restricted" neighborhoods, home-owner associations, condos, and co-ops have ordinances or rules for the homes in their communities. They might regulate the color you can paint your home, whether you can park your boat or camper in your driveway, the type of fence you can install, etc.

Some folks like the rules and select a home in the community. They feel that the rules keep the neigborhood looking good and help keep home values relatively higher.

Other folks do not like the rules -- they might want to park their boat in their side yard!

Your Realtor and you should make sure that you understand the rules before you make an offer for a home in one of these areas.

If you have other questions or need help in selecting a home, you may email me at You may search for homes at SEARCHFLORIDAREALESTATE.INFO.

Lori Lewis answered:
As a landlord most of my tennants have fair to bad credit. I pull credit on every application and if there is not any judgements for past due rents, I have them write me a letter explaining what happened. IF the credit is really bad, but i feel they are good people, I will ask for an extra months security.

Good Luck!
