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.

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