Realtors have to abide by laws and must refrain from answering questions like this. The internet has many resources to search for statistics. You may also want to visit the local police department as well as speaking to neighbors in the areas you are interested in. ... more

Hi, the best source I could find for you that defines criminal mischief in the state of Florida is at the following link:

http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0800-0899/0806/Sections/0806.13.html

Another good site to go to if you want Pasco County, FL specific crime information is the Pasco County Sheriff's site at:

http://pascosheriff.com/webapps/index.pgm

I would be happy to assist you with other questions you may have as well.

Best wishes,

This sounds like an issue that needs to be brought to the attention of your home owner's association. When taking such action, it's always best when the matter is addressed by a group of people all sharing the same concern as opposed to a single individual bringing up the topic at an association meeting.

Best wishes,

Bill

Drive time to get to Tampa International Airport from 7335 Lincoln Park Ln, Port Richey, FL, according to my own personal experience having lived near by Port Richey, is 45-50 minutes. Google Maps list 3 different routes to choose from. You can check out the Google Map I created for you at the link posted in the web reference.

WARNING: Taking Hwy 19 will always be longer than expected, also, it will cost about $4.25 to get to TIA on SR 589 but it is well worth it in my opinion.If you are making the trip often it would be worth purchasing a Sunpass.

Best wishes,

It depends on the area. I've lived in the Port Richey area for 18 yrs and the worst problem I've had was once kids stole my mail; getting a security mail box fixed that situation. I suspect lack of jobs contributes, but mainlly the people who live in this area don't complain enough to the County; no activism here. ... more

Southwest Florida is in the Gulf Coast Region. The following cities are considered part of Southwest Florida: Bonita Springs, Naples, Cape Coral, Captiva, Desoto County, Estero, Englewood, Fort Myers, Marco, North Port, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Sanibel, Sarasota, and Venice.

Here you will find white sandy beaches, crystal blue warm waters, and light tropical breezes. This is such a beautiful area with many lifestyle choices. You will find it a wonderful place to live. The real estate market offers a variety of homes and condos which are unique to each city. There are properties from magnificent golf course communities...to luxurious estate homes along the beach...to high rises in the sky...to retirement communities.

Home prices are low, interest rates are low and there is no state income tax. Insurance rates are different depending on location. You can compare homeowner insurance rates by going to the following web site: www.shopandcomparerates.com/HOCompareRates.htm. Florida also offers a homestead exemption. Details can be found at dor.myflorida.com/dor/property/taxpayers/exemptions.html.

Some lifestyle activities are golfing, fishing, boating, biking, swimming, tennis, shelling, museums, art, shopping, music, sports, dining, parks, bird watching, and nightlife. There really is something for everyone. Because of our tropical Florida weather, there are events year round. If you would like more information about living in Southwest Florida contact a Realtor or Chamber of Commerce in your area of interest.

IMHO pest tubes are a complete waste of money. You have to distribute a lot of material to cover all the tubes. I feel a perimeter spray on a schedule is a much better use of your pesticides. Who wants neorotoxins in their walls? ... more

Here's a link to the FBI web page on violent crime. Lots of information there. http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius_04/offenses_reported/violent_crime/index.html

And here's the Census Bureau's statistics of violent crime by state, per 100,000 people.

A 1% violent crime rate would mean 1,000 violent crimes for every 100,000 people. And, yes, that would be very, very bad. The District of Columbia tops the list at 1,508 violent crimes per 100,000 people, or a rate of 1.5%. Florida overall ranks 4th highest, at 712/100,000 (or 0.7%). Maine is lowest of all the states, at 115/100,000, or just 0.1%).

Specifically for Zip Code 34668, see http://www.cityrating.com/citycrime.asp?city=New+Port+Richey&state=FL According to that site, violent crime there in 2003 (admittedly, somewhat dated) was 1.54 times the national average.

Hope that helps.
