by : Robert Lipply

Why save the sun, sand and surf for your vacation? Port Richey offers the best features of Florida's vacation land in a small, comfortable community that's perfect for your everyday life. Located on Florida's Gulf Coast, Port Richey is home to about 4,000 lucky residents who enjoy 240 sunny days a year on white sand beaches that are convenient to popular attractions, excellent shopping, fine dining and cultural and sporting events.

Port Richey, best known as a bustling community for retirees, offers something for everyone, from young families to professionals. There are housing styles to suit any lifestyle including single family homes, condominium communities and townhouses. Many of the homes in the area feature waterfront access for boating, fishing and swimming. The Gulf view from Port Richey is a stunning backdrop for breakfast on your terrace or the view from your living room window.

Like most of the Florida Central Gulf Coast, the Port Richey real estate market has been affected by the recent slump in home sales. The slowdown in sales after five years of rising prices has combined with low interest rates and an abundance of properties on the market to turn Port Richey into a buyer's market. Prices for newly listed homes in Port Richey are surprisingly affordable, especially when you consider Pasco County's status as one of the nation's fastest growing communities.

Whether your idea of a weekend in paradise includes a round of golf at the local club, a waterfront stroll along a quaint main street with craft shops and art galleries, or dinner at a world class restaurant, you'll find it within an easy distance of Port Richey. Even sports enthusiasts will get their fill of professional sports with pro football, baseball and hockey teams competing throughout the year. If your sporting tends toward personal play, there's scuba diving, hiking, parasailing, swimming and a wide variety of other activities to enjoy under the sun off the coast or on the canal leading to the Gulf. Now is the time to come home to Florida's Gateway to the Tropics with a vacation or primary home in the friendliest town on the coast. Come home to Port Richey. The sun is waiting for you.
