It’s not easy to describe the real estate
scene in the Englewood area. We
have deed restricted communities,
neighborhoods dominated by families,
mobile home communities where planned
activities keep residents busy day and night,
houseboats, and sprawling residences with
spectacular views of the water.
Whether you’re looking for a lowmaintenance
condo on the beach, a familyfriendly
home with room to play outside, or
a luxury home in a gated community, you can
find it in the Englewood area.

But can you find it for the bargain price you
might have seen several years ago? Probably
not. Following the state-wide trend, the
median list price for a home in Englewood
has increased, while the inventory, days on
the market and percentage of short sales and
foreclosures have decreased significantley.
Now is the time to build, rent or buy in
Englewood. Take a drive around the area and
talk to people in a neighborhood you like.
Stop in and see one of the area’s Realtors.
They are knowledgeable and will help guide
you to your perfect place in the sun.
