There has never ben a better time to buy in the North Port area that today! There is a very large inventory, prices have come down considerably, sellers are motivated, and there are many short sales and bank forclosures. We can provide the insight you are looking for to identify the best place that matches your specific criteria.

Currently, the buyers I am working with are looking for homes in North Port that are in a different price range.
But, what general area in North Port is your property located? You never know when I will have a buyers that maybe interested in your area or type of home.
Also are you currently listed with an Realtor? I am happy to work with another agent if you have one.
Thanks & best wishes on selling your home.

Hi! I am a Realtor who works in Venice & North Port. Now is a great time to buy!
1. You can look up a home before you buy it to see if it is in a flood zone on a federal gov. website. I would be happy to help you with this.
2. CDD stands for Community Development District. Short answer is for example you buy a home in a gated community. The gated community built roads to create the community. Now the residents have a special district to pay for the roads. Once the roads are paid for the district is done & the payment. This is just an example & each CDD is different. So it is a tax district to pay for something. Check out the link I have included below to find out more about different Sarasota county CDD's.
3. Many communities accept pets, but may have restrictions. A Realtor can help you with this info.
4. I would need to sit down with you & find out more info about you to answer this question. It is a complex answer & I can't give you a proper answer without finding out more info.You can also go to the Sarasota county website to find out more.
Please contact me so I can help answer any questions you have or help you find a home.

There are numerous ways to find out... perhaps the easiest is to have a professional do some research for you. If you are comfortable, contact me at and I will find out. Otherwise, you can check with the auction company, check recently recorded public records or try to get in touch with the seller directly. I hope this helps. ... more

Bruce Lynn answered:
Get a new timeline for finishing from the builder. Then take it to local banks or local financial institutions to consider. If they won't do it, try a hard money lender. That's worst case senario. Then once it is complete then refinance to a permanent loan. ... more

Robert Gross answered:
To answer this question you need to tell me whether the property is residential or commercial? If it is residential will you be living in the home you build? How long do you intend to stay in the home? If you won't be living in the home what will you buget for the build out and how quickly will you want to sell the home or would you rent it out? Depending on the answers to these questions will determine whether now is the time to build. ... more
