It has been so nice to see new home construction happening around town again.  Local contractors and subcontractors are back to work and staying busy.  Many waterfront lots in Punta Gorda Isles, Burnt Store Isles and South Gulf Cove have beautiful new homes currently being built on them.  The insurance quotes that I've gotten for customers recently for both flood insurance and homeowners' windstorm coverage have made this a more popular option for those considering buying into the area.
