I am moving to Port Richey from out of state and have heard a lot of bad things about the area, however I have heard a few good things. What I would like to know is how is the Jasmine Lakes subdivision? Im looking at a house on Hickory Hill. Also who can I get homeowners insurance through that wouldnt be sky high? I dont know the companies in the area as most larger companies I know of wont insure Florida homes. Thanks in advance for your responses.

You are on the east side of US19 so Ins won't cost as much as it would west of US19. The area is mixed with rented homes and nicer kept homes.

Looks like a nice home and a GREAT PRICE. I don't think you will find too many people here that think this is a Great area however.

Default Thanks

I know I have seen many posts about PR being bad and have seen some that say try to stay east of 19. The prices in Port Richey are unbelievable! The house that we are looking at has been well maintained, pretty green grass, and a very nice pool, very clean inside. I am from close to Cincinnati and there are some areas up there that would be downright awful, but in a small part of the town are nicer homes and less of all the drama. I have checked the Pasco co sheriffs report and seems that most are domestic or civil problems, landlord tenant disputes. We're pretty quiet and the way I figure you are what you make it. If you are full of drama then drama will follow you. Im just hoping the surrounding neighbors are good people.

Why the rush to buy a home in an area you are unfamiliar with and have been told parts of the area may not be to your liking?
Renting for 6 months to a year would be the logical course of action..

Better check what people are paying for water bills in that area. Some are getting ripped off with insane water bills.

Jasmine Lakes sounds like the name of a trailer park

It's still much better than Westport. People are paying 100 to $150 a month for nasty, black water in that area.

I dont know why anyone who is not on section 8 would want to live in that part of the metro area...

Section 8 *****'s can live where they are told to, when you arent paying for ****, you can get told where to sleep
