Punta Gorda Market Update-September 2009

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Sometimes it truly does depend on how you look at the situation to decide if it is good or bad.  The Punta Gorda Isles/Burnt Store Isles (PGI/BSI) real estate market has good news, bad news and some that I am not quite sure is which. 

Transactions in Punta Gorda Isles and Burnt Store Isles are definitely up.  There are simply more buyers buying properties which is good for any market.  Whether the buyers are back due to pent-up demand, lower prices, more confidence in the economy, or lack of any real hurricane threats is anyone’s opinion. 

An example of the up tick in transactions certainly can be seen in Burnt Store Isles.  In 2008, there were 24 single family residential homes sold.  Through September 1 of 2009, there were 24 single family residential homes sold with 6 currently in Pending.   With 6 in Pending and 4 more selling months, there will certainly be more homes sold in Burnt Store Isles this year than last.

However, this up tick in transactions has not resulted in appreciation.  I believe that this is due to the still very high amount of properties for sale (inventory).  In August 2008, the average sale price in PGI/BSI was $414,856.  In February 2009, the average sale price was $379,765.  In August 2009, the average sale price was $359,780. 

Good news – more sales due to more buyers
Bad news – prices still dropping due to very high inventory

The Interactive Fountains

This truly unique area at Laishley Park is for the kid in all of us. Recently I took my daughters here to have a one-of-a-kind water experience.  It mixes all the fun of a backayard sprinkler with the beauty of the Bellagio’s famed fountains. The interactive fountains have seating for parents, a neighboring play area and offer lots of fun for kids of all ages.

Punta Gorda recently saw the kick off of the seventh annual Redfish Cup. The Redfish Cup coincides with our city’s Redfish Festival and Punta Gorda has the distinction of being the only permanent stop for the circuit. Ask any of the anglers and they’ll tell you that the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area knows how to treat its boaters.  There are celebrations, kids events and even dog jumping contests that all happen around the actual fishing tournament providing lots of excitement and entertainment for locals and visiting fishermen alike.

Punta Gorda Isles Christmas Boat Parade

Typical Lighted Boat

Typical Lighted Boat

Well, it’s that time of year again. Our palm trees are adorned with Christmas lights, festive cheer is everywhere and the annual Punta Gorda Isles Christmas boat parade will be making its way along the perimeter canal turning around in the Key Largo basin and heading back out again.

For those of you Northerners who may be unfamiliar with a Christmas boat parade, it is a parade of boats decorated to the nines with Christmas lights that travel through the neighborhood canals bringing good cheer to homeowners along the canals. Landside, many homeowners host holiday parties on the night of the boat parade so that their guests can enjoy this annual event as well. 

This is just one of several boat parades throughout the area. There is also a much larger parade that crosses Charlotte Harbor from Port Charlotte to Punta Gorda.

Burnt Store Isles Lighted Boat Parade

Saturday, December 13th, 2008

If you lived in Burnt Store Isles, last night you would’ve witnessed an annual tradition: The lighted boat parade. The BSI parade is sandwiched between the Punta Gorda lighted boat parade and the Punta Gorda Isles boat parade. Basically, three weekends of boat parades. We sat on the lanai and watched the boats as they passed by spreading their festive cheer.

Burnt Store Isles offers sailboat access throughout the community, meaning there are no bridges to go under on your way out to open water. Waterfront properties feature no less than 30′ of seawall upto more than 200′ of seawall. Find the perfect Burnt Store Isles home or property for you.
