Abandoned lot auction

County to sell 2,220 lots in Northport

Plans by Charlotte County to sell all 2,200 abandoned lots in Northport between November and February will certainly impact the local market for vacant land. The County is currently evaluating what process will be most effective in selling these lots.

One of the challenges surrounding selling these lots is that only one third of Northport been surveyed for Florida scrub-jays which are common in the area. Lots with active scrub-jays have limited value as they require permitting approval by both state and federal agencies and often require a 2:1 property mitigation.

We will be monitoring this lot sale process and may jump in if it appears to be an economically effective means of acquiring lots.
