Sarasota, The Greatest Place to Live


Sarasota, The Greatest Place to Live

Posted by Marcia Salkin in Arts and Culture, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota Happenings, Sarasota Luxury Real Estate, Sports 29 Jul 2021

Welcome to another month living in such a spectacular city! We all know how wonderful Sarasota can be, and many top real estate and news organizations are seeing it, too. The biggest, perhaps, is Times Magazine, which just listed Sarasota as one of the “World’s Greatest Places.” We were listed #9 in U.S. News’ compilation of the top 150 places to live as well.

An Unbeatable Market

Our own Lakewood Ranch has been labeled as the “hottest market” in the United States after selling an impressive 1535 new homes in the month of June — an 83% increase from the year before.

This huge jump was one positive produced by the pandemic, with buyers finally deciding to grab their dream living space and younger shoppers realizing remote work lets them live in paradise, no matter where their brick-and-mortar headquarters may be.

Quality School Systems to Match

Not only is our city beautiful, warm, and filled with arts, music, and good eats, it has excellent schools, too. The Sarasota County School District was just named the best in all of Florida, making our community a great place for growing families as well.

Incredible Athletes

Did you know Sarasota is well-represented in the Olympics this year? We have 6 local athletes currently competing in Tokyo. Our own Emma Weyant won the silver medal swimming in the 400 IM, and Mary Tucker took second in the mixed team air rifle event. We’re looking forward to cheering on our community members throughout the rest of the events!

If you’re looking to buy or sell in the Sarasota area, now’s the time. I’m more than happy to help you find your dream home in our highly-rated city, or sell your luxury space at a top-dollar price. I’m experienced and confident in our current, unprecedented market — and that’s something not many realtors can say.
