Venice Palms is a very nice area. I would recommend contacting a local real estate property manager to obtain a seasonal tenant.. "Season" has just started, so time is of the essence. There are a number of agencies and you may need to consult with more than one. I would try www.homeandcondo.com. Best of luck.

HI , You could check with Sarasota County, or the state of Florida at myflorida.com. There is an impact fee that's included with the price of the home. There are no other state tax fees to my knowledge. Venice is in Sarasota County. Please feel free to contact me to see the newly built homes in Venice. Or you can visit my web site to see "new construction' which I have listed, showing all the communities that are currently building new homes in the greater Venice area. I would be happy to show you these communities. Together I'm sure we can locate the house of your dreams! You can visit newhomesinveniceflorida.com... more
There is no address to assist you. I can tell you Some other things you should know prior to bidding on a bank owned home are that you should do your inspections prior to bidding as the sale is as is and the bank will not negotiate with you after they agree on a price. You should include your preapproval with your offer. Your deposit should be at least 1% of the sale sprice and in certified funds. As well you should not ask teh bank to fix anything or include any contingincies as your offer may not be accepted. Lastly be ready to close within 30 days from acceptance. Good Luck with your purchase.... more

Depending on who you ask, you will get a different answer every time. It's a buyers market and many people are taking advantage of the market by purchasing homes. Many people have predicted prices to become lower and many have predicted them to start rising again. The truth is no one knows what the future holds. It is a great time to buy..... more
That's kind of a difficult question to answer, especially not knowing your whole situation. If you say you've always wanted to retire to Venice, then I think that you may have answered your own question.
It would be wise to take a trip down here to get a good look at the different communities. As you know the home prices and rates are at all time lows.
You can do some of the initial research on my website listed below. I have every community in Venice, pictures and a list of homes in each community. I would be happy to help you in your search for a new home in Venice. If you decide to rent a property, I can help you in that direction as well.

The street view photos come from Google. They will give you an idea of the homes positioning on a lot but can vary in accuracy. The listing photos were usually taken by the Realtor listing the home or in our case we hire a professional photographer to generate photos and a virtual tour. Listing photos should be the best quality for you as a consumer to view.
It all about visibility.....and the most important form of visibility in today's real estate market is pronounced internet presence. It's essential to have an attractive website that is "optimized" so that web traffic is directed to their site.
The importance of identifying the "Buyer" prior to arriving in Venice is critical. Many agents wait for the buyers to come to them when they should be tapping into ways to attract them before they arrive in Florida.
We will keep your condo in mind and given the opportunity to show it, we will.
Be patient, this is a slow time. I'm sure your agent is taking measures to sell it for you ASAP.

Any community that started sales in 2004 is in the same boat. High number of foreclosures. Pros and cons....Pros, if the builder is still selling inventory , you should be able to buy a NEW home at equivalent pricing to the foreclosures with factoring in the cost to bring foreclosure into "like new" condition- the foreclosure could end up being more costly. If the builder still has lots and are only offering "to be built" then buying one of the foreclosures might prove better. Cons: lots of foreclosures in a neighborhood will take a long time to absorb and in the meantime deterioration and transient tenants ( a whole other story) lowers quality of life.
Check very carefully...you can get a list of pending foreclosures as well as bank owned from several sources online.
All in all Lennar does a great job statewide with their Stoneybrook concept. If they are still in control of the the HOA they should provide you with the annual budget. If it has already been turned over to the homeowners, send a letter to the management company and the representative handling the community will provide same.... more

Phyllis, Are you asking the people at Trulia for this, or do you need a REALTOR to help you? I could be wrong, but I don't think Trulia sends information, as you're asking. That's a REALTOR's job.... more
The rule of thumb that I always used was about 1.35% of the assessed value in Sarasota county. That rule used to work pretty well until the market changed and now I would estimate less. The tax system in Sarasota county certainly has its inequities however, so I could better help you if I knew what particular neighborhoods you are considering. In my professional experience, I have found that newer properties tend to have a higher tax bill than older properties. Your taxes would also be affected if you choose to homestead the property.
Flood insurance only covers flood- and is only required if you are buying in an area desginated by FEMA as zone V or zone A. You can buy optional preferred risk coverage for less that $300 per year depending on your price point of purchase.
Newer construction is much cheaper to insure- I have had quotes in Venice for abour $600 for new construction. Older homes can be up to 3x as much for the same coverage. You would have to check with your insurance agent, but homeowners should cover all other major perils.... more
As a poin t of reference, we personally bought a Venice Island home in 1997 for $119,000 and sold it in 2006 for $360,000. During the 10 years prioe to 1996 prices in the same area hovered in the $90,000 to $100,000 price range. Currently, decent Island homes remain in the $300,000 to $400,000 range.
