According to RealtyTrac, Charlotte County’s housing market’s 18th in the nation for house flipping. NBC2 reports in the past year, more homes have been flipped in Charlotte County than in Miami Dade, a market 15-times larger. Most of the flips have been in Punta Gorda Isles, but that’s also changing. House flipping is when a property’s bought, improved, and then sold in a short span of time.
