The Sarasota area is full of arts, culture, golf and boating. Anywhere you live here you are no more than 20 minutes to the beach. Tampa and Ft Meyers airports are an hour and 20 minutes away and Sarasota has it's own international airport. Disney is 2 hours away and close enough for a day trip. Daytona and Miami are a 3 hour trip so, Sarasot area is centrally located. I suggest you do your homework and check out population, crime and make sure you at least visit the area for a brief time before you make a purchase. The Sarasota area according to recent articles has hit bottom. This article was just in the paper April 22, 2009. http://www.sunnewspapers.net/articles/bznews.aspx?NewsID=688… I do hope this helps!

May I suggest Melbourne on the East Coast of Florida a few miles south of Cocoa Beach and 20 mins from Cape Canaveral for all your Shuttle & Rocket launches. We have some great suburbs that are not overcrowded and we are not overrun with tourists and snowbirds. Weather wise we are not as humid as South Florida and it can even get down too freezing 6/7 times per year!! (Overnight). House prices have bottomed (Nearly) and inventory levels are dropping and currently we have a healthy rental market. Hope this helps.
Best Regards
Paul Whitehouse
