Fall in Southwest Florida

            The best season in SW Florida has finally approached us! Fall is the time of the year where pumpkins grow, temperatures drop, and celebrations last all day. Everything in sight is beautiful as the temperature drops to the low to mid 70’s and humidity slowly disappears. A slight breeze blows that keeps you refreshed while the sun warms you when you feel a slight chill. Fall is the perfect season in SW Florida and is great when planning outdoor events; such as, camping, canoeing, and festivals!


Every year hundreds of people come down to Punta Gorda to  attend the “Dragon Boat Festival” at Laishley Park, on October 29. As adults watch manually boats racing, kids play on bouncy houses while taking a big bite into a snow cone. A variety of booths are set up during these festivals to entertain you with games, face paint, and inform you about  more upcoming events in SW Florida.  For instance, the International Airshow and Haunting on the Harbor in Punta Gorda. The International Airshow fly’s jets in a sequence giving a spectacular show on October 21-23. Haunting on the Harbor is a spooky way to get everyone in the spirit for Halloween. It includes a haunted house, costume contest, and live music/entertainment held on October 28-31 in downtown Punta Gorda.

At the end of the day people listen to music and hang out at many of the beautiful parks or Harbor front restaurants  to watch Fall’s most colorful sunsets in Punta Gorda. Many have stated that the sun looks exactly like a pumpkin during Fall at sundown.

Living in Southwest Florida by Tammy Vaughn, Realtor, Re/Max Harbor Realty

 

Hi All!!  Well, we are at the end of April, after an early Easter this year… and looking forward to Mother’s Day!  The SW Florida Real Estate season has only slowed down minimally, but we do have another good month of season left.  The expected season is typically from November to May, with the busiest Real Estate months from January to May. Temperatures in the SW Florida area this week are expected to be in the high 80s (The Highs) ; and being 6:30 AM the temperature now is 68, degrees.

  As summer approaches, the traffic will slow down, the restaurants will have readily available seating, and the Florida sun will heat the air.  The boaters in the area are already spending weekends out at the sandbars and packing coolers to spend a day on any one of our beautifully natural  barrier islands.  I am reminded everyday what a paradise I live in, in SW Florida, every time I talk to you, the customers about the area, and what is so great about living here.

A couple of the Summer Highlights in the  SW Florida area are..

At Fishermen’s Village, 1200 W. Retta Esplanade, May 14th 10-4 is the Annual Key Lime Festival,  packed with KEY LIME, and more Key lime, as village merchants offer samples of many key lime products.  There will also be live music, face painting, a fun photo booth, and FREE admission. Last year Key Lime Fudge and Key Lime Margaritas were my favorites.

Also at Fishermen’s Village, King Fisher Military Appreciation Month in May is offering half price admission to any of the  sightseeing  cruises to for all those who served in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, and Coast Guard, with a valid Military ID or proof of service. Call the ticket office at 941-639-0969 for more information.

The Punta Gorda Blues Brews and BBQ Fest will be on June 24 to 26th, located behind the Four Points Sheraton at 33 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, FL, 33950, featuring singer and songwriter Randy McAllister, and  brews from local kraft beer brewers.

That’s just a small taste of the upcoming summer adventures in SW Florida. 

Where to eat?  For Fine dining  I have to recommend Turtle Club, 139 W Marion Ave, Punta Gorda, mainly because this is where my husband took me to dinner on Saturday and everything was superb, from the waiters, waitresses, and hostesses.  The food was delicious (I had the salmon) and the staff was happy to personalize my dinner, upon my request.  Before our amazing dinner, my husband and I enjoyed the First Wine Tasting at the Turtle Club.  This was the first Wine Tasting I have experienced, and ironically, my first Boss, Jerome Presseller, from my first Job, at Howard Johnsons,  (30 years later)  was offering the cheese samples from The Big Cheese Gourmet Shop and Sunart Gallery located at 307 Taylor St, Punta Gorda.  His lovely wife and local artist, Patty Presseller, Sunart Gallery, was also offering  cheese samples with their daughter Julie. It’s such a small world.

So, to sum it up, the location is Amazing!  The area is Spirited!  And the Real Estate Market is strong.  New construction and newly built is still the most popular choice with many home buyers.  Most  primary and second home buyers that I have had the pleasure of working with recently,  have been purchasing 55 Plus or Deed Restricted Neighborhoods with Villas/ and  Single Family Homes in the $225,000-$300,000 price range in local Communities with a clubhouse, community pool area, activities, and  with monthly Dues of less than $300.  There are  still new construction villas available for very close to $200,000 in 55 plus communities in SW Florida. 

As a Realtor, I appreciate working with you, my customers and providing the Information you are looking for .  I make every effort to offer a positive experience through to the closing of your new Florida Home.  Give me a call for more detailed information on pricing and Communities in the Area… 941-628-6768. I look forward to it!
