I would also suggest that you call a number of demolition contractors in the Saraota area.
Here is one to call: Graber Excavating and Demolition 941-321-0463. Good Luck! Bob Schult, Exit Realty 941-915-9797

The average cost for a home that size would be around $10,000, but there may be other factors that could increase the price, such as damages to the house that could be a risk. I would suggest contacting a demolition contractor to get a quote. Also, be sure to get several quotes so you can get the best price possible.

There are a lot of variables that are involved with demolition. Your best bet is to talk to a demolition contractor. They will be able to give you a quote that you can go off of. They might even come out to the sight and tell you what they're able to do.

Our experience supports $10,000 as a good rule of thumb for a "fifties" type house and at the risk of suggesting any Contractor, you might try "Roots". But get ready for Bob.

As a matter of fact, I just saw a Builder quote on a teardown to build a brand new home {West of the Trail}. They itemized that portion as $10,000.

Hope that helps and best of luck.

Hi Aunt Carol,
My suggestion is to talk to building contractors usually they will handle the project from A - Z.
Salvaging any items from the old structure that can be re-used is wise also, and donating what is determined not to be re-purposed in your project. Habitat for Humanity will come and remove doors, fixtures, cabinets, tubs, etc., etc., etc. with volunteer labor (free to you) and you get a donation tax write off vs. a big hauling bill by the pound for bringing it to the dump.
I would recommend MyGreen Buildings as your contractor - they have done numerous projects on Siesta Key. Check out their website ( ) from medium to multi-million dollar projects.
Call Grant or Steve at (941.366.7280), tell them I sent you and about re-purposing what you can, and donating to Habitat the rest.
If I can be of further assistance feel free to contact me.
Best of luck,

Make sure you have a qualified demolition contractor. County permints are needed and disposal permits as to where construction debris will be disposed of. Ask for references. Check with the county.

That's like asking how much is a car. Becasue of it being on a barier island, there is usually a premium of approximately 20%. I suggest you approach companies in that industry and get some quotes. A real estate agent, although well versed in many areas, does not usually have this in their bag of tricks.
