Homes For Sale in Venice, Florida Under $200,000

By

   Venice Florida is a great community to live in on the Gulf of Mexico.  Every year people from northern states escape the cold and flood the city to enjoy all that it has to offer most of whom just come here to rent for 3-6 months.  But, what most do not know is that it is easier than they think to own their own vacation home or investment property and that there are great Homes For Sale in Venice, Florida Under $200,000 . 

   I often have the conversation with renters when they come down about the cost of renting during what we call "In Season" or "Seasonal Rent" and the cost can sometimes be triple of what a mortgage payment would be on a home of this price range.  "In Season"  or "Seasonal rental" here is typically anywhere from about September through Easter, plus or minus a few weeks here or there.  Usually after a renter does the simple math of renting for a few years, and then the math of buying the choice becomes easy.  Why just hand someone else your hard earned money when you can own your own home here.  It becomes an even more economically sound investment if you are able to get a renter in your home for a couple of months during the time that you are not here.  Just doing this can be enough to pay for things such as taxes, insurance, HOA fees and other maintenance costs.

   The simple question becomes why rent when there are plenty of Homes For Sale in Venice, Florida Under $200,000 that can be yours.  With Venice being so close to the coast, great beaches and fun outdoor activities there is no wonder that this is the destination spot for so many each and every year.  Do not forget that Venice has an abundance of great golf, dining and entertainment.  Just follow this Venice Community Information Link to find out just how much there really is to do around the Venice area.

Thanks Whitney.  Rental prices are so high here during the fall and winter that I just have to explain and make sure customers understand the value of buying.  I know I would want someone doing that for me.

    Eddie, I just got off the phone with my brother... for the 100th time we talked about moving back to Venice.   You see, Venice is our HOMETOWN.   All these years later, we are thinking, "Why did we ever leave?  Venice is Paradise!"
