Neighborhood Focus | Sarasota FL | Willowbend

Willowbend is a newer single family home community on the south side of Sarasota, located in Osprey.  Nearby attractions such as Oscar Scherer State Park and Nokomis Beach, Willowbend has a lot to like.

Willowbend's 282 homes were built by Lee Wetherington Homes between 2003 and 2005, right before the market crash.  Originally planned with eco-friendly Florida Friendly Yards, the landscaping evolved into the more mature, traditional landscaping we see in Willowbend today.

Willowbend went through a purge of upside down homes, and most foreclosures are gone. As of this writing, there are only 4 homes available for sale in the MLS, and only 6 homes have sold here in the past 180 days, another indication of the low inventory market we are experiencing in Sarasota and Venice.  The sales price during this period was $462,750, 99% of listing price after 25 days on the market.

Homes in Willowbend are 2, 3 or 4 bedroom floor plans, with 2, 2.5 or 3 baths.  Buyers will appreciate open floor plans with nice interior and exterior architectural details that distinguish Willowbend from current new home offerings.  The community pool, tennis, and children's playground are also inviting amenities for Willowbend residents.
