Bargains in Castles, Mini Mansions and Estates in Waterfront Sarasota, FL


It's never been a better time to search for Sarasota FL real estate!  Sellers of luxury waterfront properties are becoming much more realistic in the price range between $1 million to $5 million.  Recently, buyers have come to town seeking luxury homes and making reasonable offers.  Sellers are countering offers and with successful negotiations, a meeting of the minds occurs.  Last year, sellers weren't so willing to consider low offer.  Prices have come down, offers are up, and sellers are more reasonable -- it's a good time to search!

Sarasota FL offers more than waterfront properties.  The cultural venues of the ballet, opera and theater offer our residents the best of the arts.  Museums and art galleries are frequented by our residents and visitors as well as our excellent restaurants and high-end specialty shops.  St. Armands Circle is a shopping mecca.

If you are a seller of Sarasota FL luxury real estate, consider having a current appraisal of your property before placing it on the market.  Contact your real estate agent in Sarasota and get your property listed correctly.  There are buyers of Sarasota properties, but the buyers are very educated.  Buyers will not pay too much for a property in today's market.  They possess today's Internet tools and the skill to check all resources for purchasing a property, including tax records, school ratings and crime statistics.  Informed buyers are purchasing great properties at great prices.

Sarasota neighborhoods to consider for a castle, mini mansion or estate:

Mainland Sarasota:

West of the Trail, Oyster Bay Estates, The Landings, Harbor Acres, Cherokee Park

The Sarasota waterfront communities of Bird Key, Lido Key, St. Armands and Casey Key have a terrific selection of reduced waterfront homes.  If you are searching for a Sarasota waterfront home, inventory levels are still in the buyers favor offering a wonderful selection of homes. 

If an urban address is your desire, Sarasota's downtown real estate is worth a look.  The downtown area is vibrant and there are several condos available with marina and Bay views at fabulous prices.  Call us for location and prices.  Call Annette Smith at 941-504-3992 tol help you search for the perfect bargain mansion!

Hi Norma, let's hope the recipe is baking at the right temperature.  It seems to be so much better since sellers are not just staying at their price.
