As rental listings are often not on the MLS, it's hard to find accurate data for rental availability across zip codes. You should be able to get satisfactory answers from a local Realtor if you're looking to assess where is a good place to buy an investment property. ... more

Situated in beautiful Venice, Florida is the community of South Venice; located just south of Sarasota. This is actually the largest subdivision in the county, featuring more than 7,000 distinct homes. Nestled between Tamiami Trail and Lemon Bay, South Venice is one of the most popular communities in the area. One of the most unique assets in South Venice is the 1,300 foot deeded beachfront property, boat launch and ferry. Prospective buyers will be able to immediately notice the Old Florida style feel among the parks and streets in this charming community. The subdivision is managed through the South Venice Civic Association, with the South Venice Beach Endowment Trust holding the beach properties.

As a non-need restricted community, South Venice ensures that boat owners need not pay additional funds for storage of their vessels. Many of the properties in the South Venice area feature oversized or double lots. As a result, property owners can enjoy the amenities of living near the water while at the same time maintaining a sense of privacy and seclusion. A number of parks are located throughout the area, including Shamrock Park, which features basketball and tennis courts as well as a clubhouse and beautiful nature walks. There is always something to enjoy when living in South Venice, Florida.

That depends on what you like, and if you want a condo or house.

Let's start with houses.

For golf course living, my vote is Pelican Pointe, where approx $200 per month, your lawn gets cut and you get to use the club house, pool, tennis and fitness center.

For non golf course, new construction, I would say Pennington Place.

For non golf course, slightly older resales, I would vote for Meadow Run, which offers a club house, fitness room, tennis court and community pool.

For non golf course, slightly newer resales, I am thinking the maintenance free section of Venice Palms.

If you want to email me your budget and wish list, I will send you a more focused response.

Hello, Karen. Thanks for the excellent question.

There are some good opportunities for maintenance free living in Venice, Florida. If you could narrow it down to your choice of single family home, villa or condo, then I could make some recommendations. All of these kinds of homes offer a maintenance free lifestyle in this area.

For example - fees in condos tend to be higher, because they can include things like - yes - lawn service - but also, basic cable, sometimes water and sewer, exterior structure insurance, maintenance of the roof, and community amenities (like a pool). Somewhere in that monthly condo fee is the lawn service, for maintenance free, but the total monthly condo fee will be higher than - say - a single family home or villa where the monthly fee covers ONLY maintenance of the yard.

I hope that makes sense. If you can narrow down your lifestyle choice, I can give you more specific neighborhoods or developments to consider.

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.
