Hi Wendy,

Do you know that we the new Mid Florida MLS you should be able to access all the info that you want in Palmer Ranch. And if it does not work, go to the FAR website and use the search engine of MLS Advantage. It's very easy to use.

There are condos in the Palmer Ranch area. If you want your friend to have a Buyers Broker to represent them; negociating the best price, terms, and conditions on the buyers behalf and in addition we'll pay you a 50% referral fee from our buyers co-broke proceeds at closing.

Wendy,

I concur with everyone here and think that you will have the best luck in Palmer Ranch. I am getting to take a beautiful listing of a nicely upgraded condominium in Plaza de Flores (not a condo conversion) that has 2 bedrooms and a nice view. Price should be in the mid to high $100s. Let me know if I can help you around the Ranch.

Wendy: Towles Ct. is out of your market price. Palmer Ranch has Condos and Condo Conversions in your price range. I do know of a pocket listing 3/2 condo near the Sarasota Sq. Mall available in that range.
Palmer Ranch offers many amenities, is close Siesta Key Beach and downtown Saraota. Just check any of the Brokers websites or Agent Website to search the MLS.

Wendy,
I think that you're going to have a very hard time finding something in the Towles Court area that is in your price range, but there are now almost 150 condos in that price range on Palmer Ranch. Unfortunately, there are issues with many of the condo developments on Palmer Ranch that are in this range, and you would be wise to talk to a Realtor who knows the area well in order to avoid problems in the future. You'll want to know things like how many foreclosures there are in a development, how many of the units are owner-occupied vs. rented, what is going on with nearby commercial construction that may adversely affect property values, planned road construction, etc. Palmer Ranch is a great place to live, partly because it is still growing and constantly changing. I'm sure that is one reason why your friend is interested in living here.

I live on Palmer Ranch and do most of my business here, and would be happy to help you. Unfortunately, I don't have any condo listings in the suggested price range at this time, but that's okay. I'll gladly provide you or your friend with unbiased information on the community, without any obligation to work with me. If you'd like my help with the search and the transaction, that's great, but not at all necessary. Feel free to call me or send an email with your questions.

Hi Wendy,

As a courtesy, send me your email address and I will send you a search of properties in the MLS that fit your friend's criteria. Put something in the subject line so I know it is you and don't delete as spam. Hope this helps.
