Punta Gorda MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area which includes all of Charlotte County Port Charlotte, Deep Creek, Rotonda, Englewood, Gulf Cove) has been named by realtor.com as the number one ‘Boomtown’ for retirement. In rating the Top Ten cities for retirement living, the website analyzed statistics of the 1.2 million people 55 years or older who moved out of their home state in 2016 and 2017, the highest number ever recorded.
Among the reasons the Punta Gorda MSA was chosen as the number one location is the downtown area of the city and neighborhoods such as Punta Gorda Isles (PGI) waterfront community, Deep Creek, Port Charlotte and Rotonda West. These affordable towns have the lowest Median List Price of homes of all ten on the list at $275,100. It is possible to find a waterfront home to enjoy fishing, boating and sailing in PGI in the $300,000 range and a newer, absolutely luxurious single family home under $500,000. Waterfront condos in PGI are available from the mid $100,000’s.
In deed restricted communities like Deep Creek and Rotonda West, luxury single family homes list at median price in the mid $200,000’s while in Port Charlotte the median is the low $200,000’s and many nice properties can be bought well under $200,000. Condos sell for far less.
Charlotte County has much to offer persons of all ages, including beautiful gulf coast beaches and Charlotte Harbor, the protected bay estuary formed by the confluence of the Peace and Myakka Rivers. The clean waters of Charlotte Harbor are great for boating, kayaking, fishing and sailing. The many uninhabited islands provide inviting anchorages for enjoying an afternoon relaxing and swimming. The marinas on Charlotte Harbor and Englewood’s Lemon Bay have charter boats and tour boats. Many people take afternoon tours to the harbor islands for lunch and scenery or choose to take a sunset cruise to cap off an evening.
