I wouldn't recommend building anything. Even though inventories appear low at times we have plenty of homes in the pipeline, you may have to have a little patience as the banks and others list them, but you generally have instant equity if you do it correctly. This applies to all buyers...big or small.. and especially anyone wanting a nicer, newer home at a seriously discounted price.

Don't get sucked into buying an inflated, poorly built home during another building boom. That pattern is starting again as the developers go to work in bad locations like the expansion directly adjacent to I-75 in Sarasota. People will be paying hundreds of thousands of dollars... to be 20 feet away from 80MPH tractor trailers rolling down I-75.

Quality, environmental regard and new construction are not in the same sentence today in the cookie cutter developments. I recommend avoiding them completely. Buy the existing inventory and save $$$. I can help you if you need it.

I have a very nice Villa for sale...foreclosure... they just reduced it to $64,900 today. It will sell fast from here so give me a call. I always get new listings but this one sounds ideal for you.

A New community being built by Neil Homes has cottage style homes. They are small but cute. We can send you a sample listing if you like. Also, to our recollection there is an area in Nokomis that might have cottage style homes. Again, if you want us to look for you, we will be happy to do so.

Our area is more dominated by Mediterranean style homes than Key West style cottages, especially among the new home communities. A couple of communities that come to mind that have close to a cottage style architecture are River Sound and Riverdale, both in Manatee County. You can view some examples of homes for sale in this link:

Some of the smaller, older homes in Venice people refer to as beach cottages. There is a builder in Englewood that builds cottage style homes. http://newpanelhomes.com/ Also, Sarasota has some cottage style homes. I would be happy to help you or send you some listings if you could send your search criteria. You can also search on my web site for listings: http://www.tammyhayes.remaxagent.com/
