Depending on your price range there is a mobile home community on the Island of Venice called Country Club Estates. There is a monthly small maintenance fee for the public club house and other amenities. I just sold a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit in there 3 months ago for $82,000. It is walking distance to the beach, church and shopping.
Call me if you want more information.

I am currently working with some out of state investors and would be happy to help you. I do just that, take photos and send to them. All transactions, documents, and closings are done as a mail away by email or FedEx. If you could send me your information I can send you some listings to review and I would be happy to answer any other questions you may have. I preview properties and send photos as well as detailed information. I run a permit search to see if they have had updates, look up the taxes, county records and more.

Some of the descriptions in the MLS will say either turnkey or furnished, but the best way is to have a Realtor set up a search for you with the criteria of furnished. Some of the homes are sold at the asking price furnished and others will want a separate contract written for the furniture. Many lenders do not allow the furniture to be a part of the contract. I would be happy to help you if you could provide me with your search criteria. You can also search for properties on my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remax-florida.com/.

That's a question for you to answer for yourself and if its purchase and you then qualify for a mortgage, buying may never be better.

Good Lick

There are about 19 condos right now that allow pets within your price range in Venice. What are the max HOA fees you want to pay and are there other amenities that you would be looking for? How many beds and baths? Are you looking for 55+ or not? What is the weight of your pet? Some allow dogs but not cats. Some have weight restrictions for pets. I would be happy to send you some listings to review. You can also search my web site at: http://www.tammyhayes.remax-florida.com/

If I can answer any questions or help you find a condo, please contact me. I am showing condos on Monday in the Venice area.

I ran a search in the MLS in Venice. There are 6 homes available with either lease option or seller financing. The prices of the homes range from $339,900 to over $2 million. Most homes that are offered with owner financing require 20-30% down and offer at a much higher interest rate than the going rate. They also require you to have proof of good financial standing and consecutive payments either with a rental, utility bills, etc. You may want to check some of the for sale by owner sites to see if there is anything available as well.

Good morning, Judiith.

This is an excellent question - one that will help many people considering the Venice area - so thanks for asking it.

I live and work in Venice, love it's clean beaches and small town charm, and very familiar with the area.

When you say, walking distance to "town," do you mean the Historic District on Venice Island? In that case, you would need to live on Venice Island to walk, or quickly bike, to its quaint boutiques and sidewalk cafes.

If you mean, walking distance to nearby shopping and restaurants, there are opportunities for you all along Venice Avenue, Jacaranda Blvd, Shamrock and US41.

It would be depend on your budget, if you want deed restricted or non deed restricted, gated, new or older, public utilities or well and septic.

If you email me your wishlist, I can send you some listings to consider.

Thanks!

Try the Sarasota County Code Enforcement to see if there is anything they can do. Here is the web site: https://www.scgov.net/DevelopmentServices/Pages/CodeEnforcement.aspx
Phone: 941-861-5000

I am not sure if you are located in the city of Venice. They may have their own Code Enforcement Department.

Tammy Hayes answered:
The winter season is considered in season. That is when the snow birds (northerners) come down to Florida for the winter to get away from the cold weather up North. Some people rent for the winter and others are considered seasonal residents. They live down here from 3 months to 6 months. In season is usually Oct to March. Rates for rentals are much higher during the in season. I would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

David gave you the search site below that has 55+ communities. I can set you up with a search in the MLS that will just result in 55+ communities with your criteria if you would like. You can also look at the list of 55+ communities in Sarosota and Charlotte County on one of our company web sites at http://www.tropicalfloridaproperty.com/. The Sarasota list will give you the Venice 55+ communities. If I can answer any questions or help in any way, please let me know.

Sachin,

There are several alternatives that you could pursue. Investing in rental property is of course one. Others are owning a small business enterprise. I would be happy to discuss your goals and how I could help you realize them. At your convenience, please give me a call.

Hi,

There are 7 condos currently for sale on Venice Island, within walking distance to the beach. Their prices range from $70,000 to $175,000.

None of them can be rented by the week. A couple have a one month minimun rental and the rest are 3 month minimums. Very few places on Venice Island rent by the week.

If you would like to me to email you the list of properties just drop me an email. I'd be happy to send them along.

Best Regards,
Susan
