As real estate markets across the country continue to thrive, more than ever, agents are playing a critical role in the home buying and selling process as housing inventory remains challenged.
Where are the best places for agents to work? Punta Gorda is one of them.

The report also noted home prices in Punta Gorda are increasing incrementally, while the number of days homes are staying on the market is decreasing. The average home price is $271,945 and homes stay on the market for approximately 84 days, two days less than the January 2020 average, according to the report.
