There is every indication that area is primed for growth based on the reasons you stated. I would any day recommend the Paver Park and Arlington Park areas over Gillespie Park to an investor or an owner occupant.

If you are looking for an area that is reasonably priced, has older homes and is close to downtown this area is worth a consideration. Keep in mind that it may take a while for this area to turn around because of all the foreclosures and short sales. However, if you are willing to have a long range view this might be the right area for you.

Jobs that pay for the homes --where there are higher paying jobs and more amenities -- we are finding more expensive homes. Or homes that are being brought up to the value that income earner desires! (and second homes)
Investment gurus say the most promising sectors for 2013 are Technology, Energy (less utilities) and Industrials. Real estate is saying -- move to Sarasota! Both have the most exposure to a broader economic recovery and look to do quite well as we progress into the year. We are taking advantage of industrial growth and family spending.
Sarasota has some strong technology solutions firms. Most notable are Roper Industries, Coldwell Banker's Florida Home Office , Sarasota Memorial -- to Ringling influenced graphics and films. Technology firms show cash on their balance sheets. This sector of business has more cash than debt. Additionally, they offer cash return advantages to their investors and continued industry and job growth to Sarasota. -- helping those neighborhood near by.
