Sarasota Real Estate

Sarasota has a small-town vibe and abundant urban amenities that combine to offer residents and visitors a pleasant environment and a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. Located on Florida’s Gulf Coast, the city used to be the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus – hence its nickname “Circus City”. Today, the city hosts cultural institutes like the Ringling Museum of Art, and several well-known cultural events like the Sarasota Chalk Festival and the Sarasota Film Festival. The Ringling Museum has been a strong influence on both culture and architecture, and many houses and structures in the area have an Italian design.

The city is also recognized for the Sarasota Modern (most commonly called the Sarasota School of Architecture), a regional architectural style that originated on the Central West Coast of Florida after the Second World War. It’s characterized by its special consideration to weather and topographic conditions.

Sarasota’s real estate market is warm and stable for the time being, with homes selling at a median price of $240,400. The median apartment rent is about $1,800 per month. The average family income is approximately $45,500 and the cost of living is nearly 14% higher than the national average. The city’s population is over 55,000 (2015) and the homeownership rate is about 73%.
