55 and Over Communities in Sarasota

Many Sarasota area home buyers are interested in 55 and over communities, but don't know where to start their search.

The state of Florida has a website that lists state-registered 55 and over communities.  You can view the registered communities for Sarasota County here in this link:  http://fchr.state.fl.us/housing_directory/search/Sarasota/County

I have a page on my real estate website, www.davidbarrhomes.com/55_and_over_communities, with available properties for sale in Sarasota and Manatee Counties from the MLS.

Age restricted communities in this area come in a range of prices and styles.  Here are some examples that are currently for sale as of this writing (price and availability subject to change):

2/2 Villa for sale in Venetian Falls in Venice $249,000

Semi-detached 2/2 villa for sale in Lakeridge Falls in Sarasota $269,900

2/2 villa for sale in Meadowcroft in Bradenton  $114,900

3/2 villa for sale in 55 and over community in the Cascades in Sarasota $335,000

55 and over communities have restrictions not only on age of residents.  Age restricted communities are not a good choice for investors, as many do not allow rentals within up to 2 years of ownership, and guests under certain ages may have a limited length of stay.  Most are pet friendly, but may have restrictions on number and size of pets.  Parking restructions can be a problem for vacationing guests as well.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing a home in a 55 and over community in the Sarasota area.
