My name is Bill Arther and I am a REALTOR with Keller Williams Realty in Punta Gorda, Florida. I am an expert in my local real estate market in Charlotte County on the Gulf Coast of Southwest Florida where I list and sell property in Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte. I specialize in waterfront home, condo, and lot sales in Punta Gorda Isles (PGI), Burnt Store Isles (BSI), and Charlotte Harbor. I also have considerable expertise with regard to building and investment lots and acreage. Areas where you will find excellent deals on land include PGI, BSI, Burnt Store Road area, Bermont Road area, Deep Creek, South Gulf Cove, Peace River Shores, Tropical Gulf Acres, and the Rotonda Subdivisions. Charlotte County is located on the west coast of Florida between Fort Myers and Sarasota and is still the most affordable coastal community in Southwest Florida to buy or build your dream home in a tropical paradise.
Southwest Florida is still for sale at bargain basement prices - still being the operative word! It's 2013 and there are still a few waterfront homes, condos, and building lots for sale for 75% less than when real estate prices peaked in 2006 but those deals are getting harder to find every day. Even so, savvy buyers can still get a lot for their money right now. In addition to a reasonable (but dwindling) supply of affordably priced high-end waterfront canal homes there are still over two hundred single family homes for sale throughout Charlotte County with asking prices of less than $100,000 and you can still find a few of them that are less than five years old. If you are an investor or you prefer to build your new home there are still a couple hundred descent vacant lots for sale for up to 95% less than their peak prices. Yes, they are still practically giving them away! And, there are still a few excellent building lots available right now for under $5,000 in subdivisions where they sold in the past for $60,000 to $100,000 or more - and most of these lots have public water and sewer, paved roads, all utilities, fire hydrants, drainage systems, parks and recreation areas, and community boat ramps with access to Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. You can live in a warm and sunny deed restricted community less than 15 minutes from Boca Grande, the Gulf beaches, and some of the finest boating and fishing on the planet. You will find plenty of shopping, restaurants and pubs, arts and entertainment, golf and tennis, and excellent medical facilities nearby. You will be close to two major international airports and fairly central to places like Fort Myers, Sarasota, Tampa, Miami, Key West, Naples, West Palm Beach, and Orlando just to name quite a few. Things are changing fast, so check out Southwest Florida today while there is still time to find your perfect property at prices not seen since the 1990's!
From Start To Finish, I Can Help
If you want to buy, sell, build today, or invest for tomorrow, I can help. Whether it's a bank owned REO, a short sale, or a conventional sale, I help buyers find the right property, negotiate the best price, and minimize closing costs. I help sellers determine fair market value, list and market their property effectively using the latest technology, and negotiate with potential buyers competently. From start to finish, I can handle all of the details by fax, phone, text, email, or regular mail - you don't even need to be here if it isn't convenient for you. I have listed and sold real estate for buyers and sellers from all over the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii, and from as far away as Canada, Venezuela, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, China and more – often without ever meeting the buyers or the sellers in person. I have a proven record of getting the job done in a challenging real estate market. Let me put my 18 years of experience buying and selling real estate to work for you today!
