Whenever you're thinking of moving or checking out a new place, it's natural to ask about the cost of living. With so many people moving to Sarasota from other markets, this is a question I've been getting A LOT. The good news is that Sarasota is a very affordable market, especially when you consider the incredible natural and cultural amenities that you get to enjoy here. Florida in general is a relatively affordable state because we don't have a state income tax. But even in comparison to other cities in Florida that have the same tax benefit - cities like Miami and Naples - Sarasota has an affordability advantage plus the benefits of crystal blue waters, powdery white sand, and a thriving downtown and cultural scene.
