Buying a Home in Sarasota

buying_a_home_in_sarasota_341Searching for your next home should be an exciting time. I remember when my husband and I began searching to move to Sarasota  in 1999.  Back then we didn't have the internet like we do today so we would hang onto any pictures that we had sent to us from our realtor in Sarasota. 

Today with what you can see from your home computer, iPad or your smart phone shopping for real estate has become just like being there. 

In order to make your search easier and quicker we have designed 7 ways that you can search for a home and we have also included a Mortgage Calculator at the bottom of this page.   
Below is a description of those different ways with links to our Search the MLS Sarasosta Property Search page.

Enjoy and have fun, if you need help please feel comfortable in calling me, Sara at (941) 586-4790 or you can email me directly at

or you can fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
