Hi Wayne,

We sell in Port Charlotte. There are a lot of factors that go into taxes and insurance. For instance, how old the roof is, when the home was built, how far away it is from the closest fire hydrant, etc.

It's easier to find a few homes you like and then get the information on the homes. Any insurance agent will give you a free quote if you find a home you really like. The taxes can be looked up in the public records.

You can check out our website listed below. We have information on almost every community, beach, school, etc in Port Charlotte.

Please give me a call or email, we'd be glad to help!

I have a new construction to be completed in July/Aug and it's on a nice canal and block with several new homes. The address is 1113 Alton Rd. The builder is Cornerstone and he has a model right around the corner on Shehan Blvd and Peachland. I am putting it on the MLS soon. if interested call me 561-289-6328

You might want to try the area of South Gulf Cove. There are plenty of canal front lots and single family homes that might be of interest. This location is mildly developed and offers some nice value and opportunity. It is worthy of a look.

Good luck

Hi Wayne,
The cost of insurance will be determined by the age, condition and location of the house. Insurance is not required on vacant land unless you would like liability insurance.
We generally suggest taxes on a home will be approximated 1 1/2 times the purchase price. The taxes shown in the public record is what the current owner pays. That is not what you will pay. Check out http://www.charlotteareamls.com and look in areas 101 and 105 for water front property in Pt. Charlotte. Also areas 113 and 115 for water front property in Punta Gorda. Please check out our web site for other good sources http://www.PuntaGordaMoves.com Buy as much as you can afford prices have not been so low in years and that is a wonderful area to live!
Good luck.

You can go about it three ways:

- if you live in the area, drive the streets which interest you and keep an eye open on a regular basis
- go frequently through all the listings in realtor.com and filter out what interests you (though realtor.com has only perhaps 1/3 of the search capabilities that the realtors’ MLS has, so you have to filter a bit more)
- engage the help of a _local_ realtor (not someone 247 mi away, like I saw offered on this site recently), whom you can find here or through Google. The realtor will then do all the work for you, and when s/he found a property, you will hopefully* buy it through her/him.

Good luck,

*Side-bar: please do not fall for the misconception that cutting out or circumventing a buyer’s broker (a realtor who represents the buyer, not the seller) will result in a lower price for the buyer. This is neither case when the property has been listed through an agent, nor is hardly ever the case when dealing with a seller directly.

I would google port charlotte+real estate and see what agents come up. Then contact them, they can create a search for you in the MLS with your criteria and update you as to new properties. At least that is what I do for my clients here in Pasco, where we have a lot of waterfront.
