Capital Gains | Real Estate Update | Venice FL

Here's my weekly update on Venice FL home sales that showed appreciation over their previous sale.


Venice FL Notable Real Estate Sales

A 3 bedroom 2 bath home on Venice Island, just a block from the beach, just sold for $390,000 after 22 days on the market.

The previous sale was $120,000 in 1994.

Venice Island real estate is in high demand and this home represented an excellent value based on it's proximity to the beach and it's large 12,000 square foot lot. This home would be a good candidate for a tear down or for a major renovation.

Capital Gains | Real Estate Market Update | Venice FL

The Venice FL real estate market is showing some signs of improving over the 2008 market crash.

Venice FL real estate market improving

A pool home recently sold on Venice Island in Golden Beach for $649,000, a healthy increase over it's last sale in 2006 for $495,000.

While Sarasota is showing more of a general improvement in prices for most property types, prices, and locations, the recovery in Venice seems to most prevalent among entry level homes, new construction, and homes in high demand areas, such as this property in Golden Beach on the Island.

Examples are recent sales in Pelican Pointe and Venetia.  Two upscale homes recently sold in these neighborhoods at prices that were lower than their previous sale price.
