I see alot of homes for sale in Gulfport. Is this a good area of St. Pete's? Why are there so many homes for sale?

Remember that Gulfport is not part of St. Pete; it is a separate entity in its own right. I don't know why there are so many homes for sale. It is a pretty nice area, but you have to go through some kinda crummy parts of St. Pete to get there. Just from driving in and around there, I would try and avoid anything in the immediate area of Gulfport's eastern border. Again, these are observations from a non-Gulfport resident.

Default gulfport

See how much I know!lol I like the old renovated homes and bigger tree lined lots I see in that area. How about the Lake Maggiore area? Is that a nice area too? Does it flood in these southern Pinellas communities when it rains so hard? I would think that since there are many still standing old oak trees, that hurricanes haven't been too tramatic in these areas?

I honestly don't know about flooding. I'd assume so, because of the lake and the fact that Pinellas is so low. The neighborhood may be okay, but you'd definitely be surrounded by a lot of riff-raff, which might filter in. I'm not too familiar with South St. Pete neighborhoods.

Flood insurance is an issue for Gulfport and Pasadena. And, as noted, there are some..um...less-than-exclusive parts of St Pete that not only border on Gulfport but are referred to as Gulfport in real estate ads. If you can find a house for 100K in Gulfport, trust me-- you probably don't want it (unless you have a major sense of adventure).
