Punta Gorda Real Estate Market
Punta Gorda is a real estate market that has become highly desirable. It is located on the south bank of the Peace River and along the eastern shore of Charlotte Harbor. This creates an excellent amount of access for homebuyers to find a home near the water, especially if they are boat-lovers.
Today, real estate remains affordable and available. The median sale price of a home for sale in Punta Gorda is over $213,000 as of November of 2017. The area has a price per square foot of $137. Over the previous 12 months, home prices have grown as much as five percent. This is an excellent reason for homebuyers to purchase real estate here. The area remains one of the most affordable regions along the Florida coast. It's lower pricing comes from the fact that it is tucked into the harbor rather than right on the Gulf of Mexico. But, those amenities, including the beaches and tourism-centered benefits, are a short drive away.
The median rent in the city is over $1625 for a home. For this reason home prices are very attractive. With limited rental options available, this can prove to be an important reason to buy instead of rent here.

This is a very strong inventory level, and one of the reasons why this community remains a buyer's market.
