Homes for Sale in Sarasota, FL

If you are searching for a home for sale in Sarasota, FL, you are probably looking for waterfront property.  Sarasota Florida is all about the water.  The barrier islands of Casey Key, Siesta Key, Bird Key, Lido Key and Longboat Key offer a variety of options to buyers desiring a resort lifestyle.  You can choose from single family homes, condominiums, villas or town houses.  Land is expensive on the islands if you plan to build.  You might just find a tiny beach cottage to raze if you do want a new home.  Some of these older beach cottages are priced just at land value.  Keep in mind that waterfront land is premium and even though prices have adjusted, Florida waterfront property commands a higher value than mainland property.
