September 2020 Newsletter

A recent Herald Tribune article showcased some of the early developers who came to Sarasota and immediately saw this area's potential. In 1917, Bird Key's first resident summed up the area, "Oh words cannot paint the scene! Imagination cannot conceive of such grandeur."

Not much has changed from these early accounts as we are still blessed to live in a tropical paradise with miles of sugar white beach. Despite the fact that 2020 has been a difficult year all around, our real estate market is thriving. It's hard to believe in 1912, you could purchase a downtown Sarasota lot for $125, which was quite a sum. Owen Burns noted, at that time, "Do you realize that the prices for Real Estate that today seems high will look ridiculously small in a few years?"

Have truer words ever been spoken! In the late 1970's, you could purchase a waterfront home in Country Club Shores for the mid $100,000's! Sarasota real estate has been and remains a good investment. Who wouldn't want to live here, and looking at the current low inventory of properties for sale, I'd say everyone wants to live in Sarasota!

Like the many Realtors who came well before my 40 years in this business, I'm sold on Sarasota - today and tomorrow.

About Bay Isles Longboat Key

Sarasota - A Boater's Paradise

Boaters who live in Sarasota share a great secret. Imagine salty sea breezes, perfect weather, and boundless navigable waters. From all corners of the globe, boaters are drawn here not only by the beauty of the Gulf and inland waterways, but by a noticeable lack of boat traffic, favorable currents and steady winds that make this one of the best boating environments anywhere.
