Call Rossi and Associates. They are honest and careful with their searches. They listen and are very accurate in melding renters and landlords.
Sotheby's does not assist with rentals but these folks will be truthful and very helpful in your search.

I have a beautiful four bedroom home on Siesta Key on a wide canal for rent.
It is approximately five blocks to Village and Beach. I can provide pics if interested.
The price is $3,200/mo.

That would be fantastic... but a little out of our budget. We are looking for something closer to $1500/mo. Thank you for your response :)

Waiting to buy will only cost you money. In the $50-$250,000 price range we are seeing multiple offers on homes and condos, and in many communities prices are rising.

If you need a mortgage reference please contact me. In the meantime, you can search http://www.davidbarrhomes.com/sarasota_mls to search for homes in your price range with a pool.

Please let me know if I can provide any advice or assistance to you for your housing needs in Sarasota.

Hi Robyn,

Some good sources to check in the other answers.
Rental inventory is definitely tightening up, so you will likely be best off to do lots of checking around.
You can go to my site, http://www.JimSweat.com and click the Search Like an Agent blue tab on the right.

That will give you access to a free search engine that pulls directly from the same MLS that agents use. You can then search all of the rentals that are listed. (and homes for sale, when the time comes)

Unfortunately, not all available rentals are listed in the MLS, so that is a great source, but not the only one.

We moved from Michigan and love it here!

All the Best,

Robyn Hawk, to find a home with a pool your best bet is to contact an apartment complex. Homes with a pool to buy are difficult to find. The inventory is very slim right now.

Try apartments on or near Palmer Ranch.

Good luck,
