Hi jb...

There are two main types of rental in the Sarasota area...annual and seasonal. Seasonal rentals are always furnished and command a higher rate because of this and the fact that your rental period is in "peak season." In most cases you can expect to pay nearly double or more compared to the annual rates.

Of course other factors enter into consideration when determining rental rates as well: size of unit, proximity to beaches, newer vs older, pets, pool, amenities, etc. etc. At this point in time, finding a three month rental could be a challenge...but they are out there. For a decent two bedroom condo/single family home, you can plan on a minimum monthly rate of $2,000 to $2,500.

I recently sold a single family home that the owner is planning to rent. It's a 2/2 single family home, six tenths of a mile from the beach and located in Venice(25-30 minutes from Sarasota). I would be happy to put you in touch with the owner if you have interest.

Hope this information is helpful....

Best of luck,

Bill Eckler

JBToth, your question is too vague to provide adequate information. Any rental under six months is subject to a 15% tourist tax which is part of the rental rate. Rates vary based upon the time of year and location.

Typically, seasonal rent rates are double the annual rate. They could be more or less. Depends upon demand.

If you are thinking about the current winter season, you will have to begin looking now uncovering all possibilities. Most reservations were placed last year. If you have any special needs requirements best to disclose them up front; a pet.

Good luck,
