This condo is located in Dolphin Tower in Sarasota. The 2011 tax assessed value for this condo was $39,200. That is for tax purposes only and does not refer to the appraised value of the condo. The comparable solds are in the $32 to $43k price range. The building is undergoing structural repairs and cannot be occupied. It is recommended for investors only.

Sandra,
Hello. I have used them in long large bedrooms to divide space. They have served there purpose and did work. But keep in mind, they are not fixed and can move and may be safety issues depending on the age of people living in the house. Before we sold the house and relocated, we changed it back to the original state. However I have never used them for common living areas. In those areas I have made defined areas with furniture, carpets or a combination.
I hope this helps and if you need to ask more questions, please feel free to contact me at 813-545-5711.

Sandra, are you asking permission to hang silver trays on the wall for decoration? The remainder of the question does not make any sense. Best to try re phrasing it again.

It's good, but it costs more. With new homes you have access to walls with no dry wall, are you removing drywall? If so you can use it easily.

Here is a blog I wrote on dog parks.


Southwest Florida pet friendly parks and beaches

Are you looking for a place to enjoy the outdoors and take your pet with you? Southwest Florida provides recreational opportunities for dog owners and their pets. Here are some options.

Pet Parks
Hounds on Henry Street is a dog park located at Henry and Shreve Streets in Punta Gorda, FL. The park has a fenced area for large dogs as well as a small dog and puppy fenced area. There are water spigots, benches, picnic tables, trash cans, and disposal bags available. They do not have public restrooms. The surface type is grass with cement paths. Dog owners are responsible for their dogs at all times.

Paw Park is located at 24410 Bayshore Rd in Port Charlotte, FL. This park has a fenced area where your pet can play off the leash. There is a separate small dog area, water hoses, water bowls, and disposal bags. There are restrooms and a playground nearby.

Edgewater Paw Park is located at 22410 Glass Lane in Port Charlotte, FL. This park does allow dogs and has over one acre of fenced-in land where your dog can roam. They have a picnic area with picnic tables, a playground, restrooms, trash cans, and bag stations. Dog owners must be in the fenced area with their pet at all times and must have their leash in their hand.

Judd Park, or sometimes called Pooch Park, is located at 1297 Driftwood, North Fort Myers, FL. This 14 acre facility offers a lighted softball field with clay infield. Other amenities include four tennis courts, 2 pavilions, playground, canoe/kayak launching, dog park and restroom facilities. The dog area is gated and fenced in and has potable water for dogs and owners and several signs indicated which areas are for large and small dogs. Dog lovers are encouraged to use the facility and to please pick up after their dogs.

K-9 Corral at Estero Park is located at 9200 Corkscrew Palms Blvd, Estero, FL. You can bring your dog to the park to exercise and socialize with other dogs. The fenced area is open during normal park hours. Small and timid dogs have a designated area while larger dogs have a separate area for themselves. This two-acre canine wonderland is surrounded by large trees that offer much shade for you and your pup. Disposal stations and water locations are provided.

Barkingham Park is located at 9800 Buckingham Rd, Fort Myers, FL. The park has two fenced in areas for dogs to play. There is a small agility area. There is also a smaller fenced area for shy and small dogs and puppies. They have dog water fountains, a cool off dog shower, dog waste disposal stations, and park benches. They also have many trails to walk such as the mitigation lake and primate back trails through pine and palmetto habitats. Dog owners are required to have proof of vaccinations, dog licenses, and keep their pet under control at all times.

Dog Beaches
Dog Beach is located at the south end of Lovers Key just west of New Pass Bridge and north of Bonita Beach, 8800 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers, FL. There are no restrooms or running water. Parking is free. This is an off-leash beach area that can be used for dogs. Owners must clean up after their dog, prevent them from harassing wildlife and shorebirds, and control their dogs at all times.

South Brohard Beach and Paw Park is located at 1600 Harbor Dr. S., Venice, FL. This park is for dog lovers. It has a fenced dog play yard, doggie drinking fountains, showers on decks for dogs only, fire hydrants and leash posts. The park is also adjacent to the only beach in Sarasota County that allows dogs to roam free. Dog lovers have declared this park and beach to be the best doggie park in the state.

Cindy,
If you're willing to consider a sleepy little town on Florida's east central coast, I would suggest where I live.

New Smyrna Beach is a great place to call home. It has something for everyone. In addition to a wide beach with sand as soft as talcum powder, New Smyrna Beach also has the Indian River with its inlet from the Atlantic Ocean.

We have fishing, boating, kayaking, eco-tours, paddle-boarding, bicycling, art shows, antique shops, a historic district, 50s-style cruise nights in our old-fashioned downtown, and lots more. Perhaps it`s the right place for you. Good luck with your home search.

Hi Cindy,

Yes, there are plenty of 2 bedroom homes within your price range. Just depending on what area you are looking in. Sarasota covers a pretty large area. Do you want the city of Sarasota, Venice, North Port or a specific location? You can search the MLS on my web site at tammyhayesre.mfr.mlxchange.com or I can send you some listings to review.

Mike Winger answered:
That is what some consider the "cross over point" when the MLS has more inventory than can be sold off in 6 months you are trending to a buyer's market. When there is LESS inventory such that at current transaction rates the entire MLS would be sold in UNDER 6 months then it is trending to seller's market. Hence at the WORST of the bubble when there were times the MLS had 2 YEARS of inventory - well that was a buyer's market.

We are seeing though, here in SW FL, at least at certain price points, inventory at or even well under 6 months... so the pendulum is swinging back.

You can contact the Sarasota County Zoning Department and give them the address of the property. They will tell you the setback requirements. https://www.scgov.net/DevelopmentServices/Pages/Zoning.aspx

You would also need to have a survey of your property to know where the property lines are. As David said below, if you are in a deed restricted community you may not be able to park your boat and trailer at your home.

get ready for an ugly Mr. Toad's Wild Ride!

Shart Sales are a Clown Car Full of Horrors as many find after 10 months waiting on a Hope To Gain!

Don't stop looking for re-sales and foreclosures because that Short Sale bank can care less about buyers trying to buy a home they are being forced to allow to be sold for less than what the owners owe!

Alex,

Have no idea how it works in Arizona because real estate laws are different from state to state. However, in Florida you must have a real estate license or be an attorney to receive money from the sale of real estate for someone other than yourself.

Re-plumbed means they replaced the plumbing in the home. There have been a lot of instances of pin-hole leaks in copper plumbing in this area. Here is a link to information on that in Sarasota County. http://naca-nokomis.com/copper.faqs.6.05.htm
