Downtown Sarasota, Florida 

People in the market for Florida real estate quickly learn one thing: downtown Sarasota is hot. This year alone, competition for the downtown homes and condos has escalated. “The Sarasota area is blessed with incredible natural beauty, great cultural assets and tremendous amenities that families enjoy year round,” said the president of the Sarasota Association of Realtors. “We have a tremendous real estate market, and more and more people are finding out about this area, across the nation and around the world.”

Why Choose Downtown Sarasota?

Downtown Sarasota draws a special group of homebuyers attracted to the combination of laidback living and a high-energy city. The Sarasota, FL real estate market has long been considered one of the top in the nation. Newly revitalized neighborhoods have become in-demand for people seeking relocation, retirement or a second home.  Read More...

“Look around and you’ll see families with kids and dogs in tow, retired couples from Longboat Key, artisanal young men with beards who make cheese and furniture, Mennonites from Pinecraft, affluent and tastefully dressed older gay men, and a TV crew inexplicably filming a Spanish language music video,” noted Sarasota Magazine . “[And] you’re in the middle of everything.” While retirees make up a significant portion of Sarasota’s downtown population, the fastest-growing buyer segment is middle-aged adults and their children. Modest inland homes along with high-end luxury properties give buyers a range of choices.

Types of Real Estate

There's quite a variety of inventory in the downtown Sarasota area. Luxury condominiums assist in creating the city's gorgeous skyline.  The Ritz Carlton Residences offer the finest in appointments and amenities or you might like some of the historic Sarasota neighborhoods.

  • Single Family Homes
  • Condos
  • Town Houses
  • Villas

Location/Weather

Known as Florida’s Cultural Coast, Sarasota benefits from a centralized location, providing easy access to Orlando, Tampa and Naples. The area is served by three nearby airports, and though you can drive to many points of interest, walking remains the best way to enjoy downtown Sarasota with its many restaurants and shops.

Just a few months residing in Sarasota reminds you that you’re nestled in a tropical zone. That means a warm, mild winter, where the lows seldom dip below 50 degrees F and daytime highs allow for shorts and sandals, even in February.

Things to Do in Downtown Sarasota

With 32 local golf courses, thousands of wilderness acres to hike within 30 minutes of downtown, and even a chance to catch Major League Baseball teams at spring training, Sarasota doesn’t lack for activities and attractions. Your day may begin with a swim at your health club’s private pool and then breakfast at an outdoor café in town. Take in the shopping on Main Street and Palm Avenue or stroll the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens by day. Sarasota Bayfront is a great stop too!

Then, plan for an evening of fine dining, club hopping, theater or live music - it's all within steps, courtesy of a well-planned downtown.
