Many people get an itch for warm weather and Florida often comes to mind, especially in the dead of winter; day after day of gloomy skies, snow and ice with no end in sight. Can’t blame them, that’s exactly why we live here.
North Port is a great place to live. Located in southeast Sarasota County bordering Charlotte County, Florida, it’s a city with its own government and services although the schools are operated by Sarasota County School District, one of the best in the state. North Port has one high school, two middle schools and five elementary schools. Bus service provided for most areas.
No matter your price range, there’s something for everyone in North Port from mobile home parks, single family homes, villas, golf course communities, waterfront, condos and estate homes on acreage with horse property.
North Port enjoyed record growth in the early to mid 2000’s and many single family homes were built. Like most places in the country, the housing crash resulted in tumbling prices and high inventory of homes at rock-bottom prices. Mid 2012 saw prices stabilize and inventories dwindle, but prices are still low with newer homes priced in the low 100’s and pool homes starting near the mid 100’s.
North Port has many fresh water canals and some gulf access waterways via the Myakka River as well as three golf course communities; Bobcat Trail, Sable Trace and Heron Creek.
