PORT ARANSAS, Texas - Perhaps you are back at work and daydreaming about "Starting a new life in the palm trees" as Jimmy Buffett puts it.  You hop online and start researching everything there is to know about condos and homes in Port Aransas.  Hopefully that is what lead you here.  

In the past ten days, I've written a series of posts to help provide an overview of "Vacation Home Ownership In Port Aransas."  Here they are in case you missed them:

In this final post of the ten-day series, I'll point out some online information resources that are helpful for research and Doing Your Homework

I hope that you have bookmarked/saved the Port Aransas Real Estate Blog.  I try to provide useful information on local news, events and the real estate market.  I often hear from readers with follow up questions.  If I can offer any information, please feel free to post a comment, send an email or give me a call.

It was only a few years ago, that Port Aransas was not part of a Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  That has changed as more people get information online.  The enhanced MLS Search available at Texas Island Properties offers helpful features that make it easy to search, find and track condos, homes and lots.  Many users benefit from automated email alerts that they set up to notify them of new listings.

The Port Aransas South Jetty is the weekly newspaper that has been serving the community for decades.  The paper is published every Thursday and offers a wealth of local info.  Subscriptions are available for print and online versions.  And now, you can follow them on Twitter.

The City Of Port Aransas website provides information on City departments, facilities, ordinances and official notices.  The most popular pages are the Port A Ferry Cams that show the lines at the ferry landings.

The foremost online authority for Port A information is Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce website.  They offer a complete list of places to stay, eat, shop and have fun.  The Business Directory can be quite helpful to find local contacts for a variety of services.
