I’ve written about how hot sales throughout Sarasota are right now and one of my recent listings illustrates the trend perfectly.
A great townhome in the Valencia stretch of Rosemary Park, a specific development in the Rosemary District, flew off the market as soon as it was made live. The address on Boulevard of the Arts is directly across from The Sarasota Modern hotel where residents can access amenities, including the pool. Plus, the location is perfect for walking to the Rosemary’s cool spots like The Overton, downtown, and the Bay. When The Bay Sarasota (the huge new waterfront park) is finished, this address is going to be even more incredible.
For the buyer who snapped up this property, location was one of the factors, but lifestyle was just as important in sealing the deal. Townhomes are having a MAJOR rebound in popularity because they couple zero-maintenance convenience with single-family style privacy and separation. Coming from Colorado, this buyer is thrilled with how his new house makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors even while working from home. There’s so much to say about the type of buyers who are relocating to Sarasota that I’ll save the details for another post. In short, there are more and more pre-retirement and young professional residents coming and they are interested in inventory that combines access to downtown with low- or no-maintenance living. If you’ve got a condo or townhome to sell, this works in your favor!
