I have listed and sold homes in North Port, FL and would be happy to help you. Generally I recommend getting financing through a lender here in Florida. I could send you listings of homes to view. If you have properties that you would like to look at, I recommend visting Florida to see them yourself. However, I have taken photos of the home and sent to buyers and buyers have bought homes site unseen. I can explain all of the details to you. You can contact me as follows:
