It depends what type of neighborhood your are looking for. There are deed restricted communities, gated communities, non-deed restricted areas. Smaller homes, larger homes, mobile homes, condos, villas, townhouses. So the neighborhoods vary quite a bit. If you are looking for crime statistics, you can go to the Charlotte County Sheriffs web page at:

Hi Deb,
The home at 4670 Herman Circle is a bank foreclosure and is being sold on It requires a 5% buyers premium. The home is in a flood zone and with the age of the home the homeowner insurance will be high. The home is located in a decent area of Port Charlotte, but for crime and safety your best resource is the Charlotte County Sheriffs Department. Here is a link to their web site where you can look at the crime reports and the crime map. If I can answer any other questions or help in any way, please let me know. You can search for additional properties of interest on my web site.

These communities are so close that you'll likely see no negligible difference in this and most other features. With this said, consulting with the local police or sheriff's department should provide you with the detailed information you require.

You are targeting one of the best locations in Florida for value and quality of life for residents. I'd be happy to provide you with information as required.

Best regards,

It is on a busy road but speed limit is 35. There is a Sheriff's Station about 1/4 mile down the road. The area is a little rough. Lot's of drug crime in the past on the streets between Harbor and Aaron St. but not so much now. Lots of houses are for rent in the area and for cheap. ... more

Busy lady,

We occassionaly see in the news reports of snakes being let out in the wild as they get too big for the owners. Same is true with Iguana's which seems to be more of an issue than the snakes. For example, Boca Grande has a growing population of Iguanas which are not indigenous to this area. Our recent cold snap was expected to kill some of these predators.

If you are currently working with a Realtor, you may want to pose this question for the specific areas you are looking at. I would recommend a pest inspection when you are ready to buy.

If you aren't working with a realtor, please feel free to call or email me and I can help you.

My website will provide you with the ability to search homes in the area, though I'm quite sure that none will mention snakes!!

Best regards,
