Venice Florida- Best Retirement Destination
Sarasota County which includes Venice, Florida was highlighted by Portfolio.com as being the most popular retirement destination in the United States. Retirees are seeking out Venice Florida because of its wonderful beaches, golf courses, waterfront dining, quality medical care systems, sub-tropical climate and the general walk-ability of the downtown area.
Retirement is a hot topic as over 3 million Americans will reach age 65 in 2011. Many retirees have held off selecting their final residence due to economic conditions and there is a pent up demand. Affordable prices and low interest rates have made this the time to buy. Wayne Welsh, Broker-Owner of Venice Shores Realty stated “We have sold nearly 10 million dollars in transaction sides in 2010 and already have clients submitting offers which will close into 2011. Venice Florida real estate is hot right now. We have clients purchasing homes now for their retirement 2-3 years from now.”
Many retirees wish to be within a 15 minute drive to the beach and have a swimming pool in their back yard. Add some palm trees, and you have the stereotypical vision of Florida. This Home at 4959 Bella Terra Drive in Venice Florida is listed for $349,700 and has it all. It has since been sold.
