For many, spending a cold winter in the northern states has pushed the limits of their tolerance and having a winter home in Florida is certainly an attractive option. Now that many have recovered previous loses in the stock market realized in the economic downturn and with interest rates on the rise, now is a good time to take some money off the table and invest in real estate. Many agree that now is the best time for a purchase as home prices are showing signs of recovering.
But where do you start? If you search for Florida real estate has led you to Sarasota but you are not familiar with the area how do you know where the best neighborhoods are? As a Sarasota real estate broker I strive to provide information on Sarasotas best neighborhoods to help make your search efforts easier. One development I feel offers something for nearly everyone is Palmer Ranch.
Palmer Ranch is a Master Planned Development comprised of 25 residential communities that do not have any ownership restrictions. Many of the communities here are gated and offer 24 hour security. Palmer Ranch homes for sale range in price from $60,000 for a 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo in Vintage Grand, to over $1 million in communities such as Silver Oak on Palmer Ranch and in the Prestancia real estate development which is home to the TPC Prestancia golf course.
For those who will only reside in Florida in the winter, maintenance free home are a very smart option. The homes come with yard maintenance and exterior insurance as part of the Home Owners Association monthly fees. While you are away your home will be well maintained so you can enjoy your summers up north worry free.
One Palmer Ranch real estate development worth considering is the Hamptons on Palmer Ranch. This community consists of three neighborhoods, The North Hamptons which provides the lowest HOA fees of the community however it is not gated and it is not maintenance free. Then there is the South Hamptons, this community is also not gated but it provides maintenance free living. And then there is the West Hamptons, this neighborhood is gated and features some very attractive home with private swimming pools.
The Hamptons on Palmer Ranch homes for sale range in price from $250,000 to nearly $400,000 and the floor plans in this community vary in size from 1,700 to 2,700 square feet. The Hamptons is a wonderful residential community and the selection of Hamptons homes for sale is always small, a testimony to the popularity and desirability of this Palmer Ranch community.
Palmer Ranch real estate is certainly some of the best real estate in Sarasota Florida. If Palmer Ranch sounds good to you then you will probably like the community of Turtle Rock as well. Turtle Rock homes for sale are located behind manned security gates and there are a lot of maintenance free homes in this community. Whatever you desire, Sarasota Florida Real Estate has something to offer everyone.
