Are there any sink holes reported in this neighborhood? Also, any idea how long it would take to commute to MacDill AFB? Thanks.

All of Florida has sinkholes.
New Port Richey doesn't have that sugar sand that they do up in Spring Hill florida so the house doesn't collapse. Purchase sinkhole insurance no matter where you live in Florida. It's about an hour from MacDill if you take the expressway. Longer depending on traffic.

Disclosure will require the seller to tell you if the house had a sinkhole.

There are sinkholes in this area, and as other have pointed out, there are various government sources of finding where the KNOWN sinkholes are. I should mention here that I am the only Realtor in this area who is also an active licensed sink hole adjuster. I would like to further explain in detail the sinkhole/insurance situation in this area if you care to contact me. Jim Blandford castletocondo@gmail.com

Nadine,

It appears you have some good answers from previous respondents. I would like to point out that just because an area does not have a past history of sinkhole/ground settlement activity does not mean that there will not be future issues. The Florida Department of Enviornmental Protection has a good FAQ page which you may find useful at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/geology/feedback/faq.htm .

Commute to MacDill is 45 to 55 minutes depending on traffic.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Fred Strickroot

no sink holes in this community area and about 40 minutes or a little more to Mc Dill depending on the times you're commuting.
