The middle school bus in my neighborhood alone lets off 10-15 students at one stop. So nice the see families moving into our area. I live in Venice. Check the ratings of our schools and I think you'll be pleased. It would be my privilege to help you find a home for your family.

There are still foreclosures,however the are going quickly. Some have has as many as 10-15 multiple offers on them. Do I think they are over, no! As for an abundance the answer is depends. An abundance of move in ready bank foreclosures, no. Homes that need new roof, cleaning up, fixing up, are still waiting for buyers. As for gated communities I would not consider our current inventory an abundance.

Since you are an agent would you mind me asking has the forclosures slowed up and are there an abundance of empty homes in these gated communities?

Apewired, The information requested is pretty subjective. Best to call the Sarasota school district for schools in the Venice area and also check out This is a website with public forum questions just like the one asked here and answered by the public.

Perhaps you should consider Port Charlotte or North Port. These are communities just south of Venice and have a much younger median age. My wife teaches second grade in Port Charlotte and the schools are very highly rated and most have been upgraded to the best current technology. It is a great town for a family.

The median age in Venice is in the 60's. However, there are children living in Venice. You can go to the Sarasota County Schools web page at You can also go to the City of Venice at Both sites should provide you with more information on the area and schools.

We live in Sarasota FL which is just a town over from Venice. Lakewood Ranch usually has more of the young family vibe you are looking for. If its not too far away you might want to look there. I teach in Lakewood Ranch if that helps. Of course there are children in Venice and young families as well it does have a charming appeal to it and is still a nice place to raise a family.
