Port Charlotte was a NO BRAINER!
Coming from NC, my husband, an avid fisherman, and I retired recently. We couldn't wait to pick out a town in FL to move to. Anywhere was fine as long as it was on the west coast between Sarasota and Venice/ Ft Myers area. Our criteria was:
At least 1200 sf
in a Town with promise/growing
Where we could get the most bang for buck/best value for the $
has to have local eateries plus some of the chains i love like Panara Breads, etc. and of course great shopping!
The research began. I've interviewed, read local and statewide, blogs and studied every kind of data from crime rates to elevation rates, blah blah.
Buying and moving to PORT CHARLOTTE was a no brainer. What a place to get an incredible deal on a house- still. It is our paradise. We were just getting ready to make an offer on a house at Cape Corral but I'm so glad we picked Port Charlotte. Crime is so low. It is transitioning - very much like Bonita Springs - into a very Tony Town! People here are beyond friendly. Love it!
