That's kind of a difficult question to answer, especially not knowing your whole situation. If you say you've always wanted to retire to Venice, then I think that you may have answered your own question.
It would be wise to take a trip down here to get a good look at the different communities. As you know the home prices and rates are at all time lows.
You can do some of the initial research on my website listed below. I have every community in Venice, pictures and a list of homes in each community. I would be happy to help you in your search for a new home in Venice. If you decide to rent a property, I can help you in that direction as well.
