Overseas property investors looking to move to Florida, but away from the more traditional area of Orlando are being urged to consider arty Sarasota.
“Many vacationers get 'sand in their shoes', which is local term for the need to find a way to relocate or at least retire here.” commented Wallace Erickson of local agents The Realedyne Group, who is in no doubt as to the area's selling points “Siesta Beach, which has sand the consistency of sugar, was voted the number one beach in the world in 2011. Sarasota also boasts the world renowned Ringling School of Art and Design and the Ringling Fine Art Museum and it's home to a Symphony Orchestra, ballet, opera and many fine live theatres, plus lots of golf courses.”
Erickson is selling a host of property in Sarasota including one bedroom beach front lofts for around £340,000 and three beds short sale villas for £230,000. For more information email [email protected]
