Port Charlotte will, by far, have the best prices. I wish we could find something like that on Siesta Key... it just does not exist. Englewood is very nice but a little more expensive than PC. Venice is more expensive still. I am showing homes in PC today and compared to what we saw in Englewood and Rotonda yesterday, in PC you get more for your money. Englewood and Rotonda are much closer to the gulf beaches and people are sometimes willing to pay the difference.

Here is a report of homes for sale in Port Charlotte, up to $200k: (you may have to copy it and paste to your browser) http://www.searchsuncoast.com/searchresults.html?proptype=Ho…

Let me know if I can be of further help.

Now is a great time to buy a home since there are lots of homes out there for sale at reasonable prices. You can search for homes on my web site http://www.annekyer.com and click on Property Search. Siesta Key, Venice and parts of Englewood are in Sarasota County and Port Charlotte and parts of Englewood are in Charlotte County. You will need this information because it asks you in which county you want to search. If you see any homes that meet your criteria that you would like to see in person, please contact me. Good Luck.

Without a doubt, the deals would be in Port Charlotte. You will find a home on a canal with gulf access, close to the Port Chrlotte beach complex or 1/2 hour to Englewood Beach. Siesta Key is beautiful but very expensive. Sarasota, Venice and Englewood are expensive and the access may not be as good.

You can see Port Charlotte homes at http://www.searchsuncoast.com

If you have any specific questions about the area, please feel free to call me or email. I will do the research you need.

Hello and thanks for asking about the market in Southwest Florida. There are several homes that meet your criteria in the Port Charlotte and Englewood area. The lifestyle here is laid back and the weather is phenomenal. Would you consider a condominium on a canal with 3br/2bath/200K range? That would give you even more opportunities to buy, if that fits your lifestyle.

If you would like information on the available homes in that price range, you can email me at sallysells@comcast.net or call at 941-916-2934.
