Generally Venice is more expensive than North Port. If you take the same 3/2/2 newer home and put it in Venice you'd probably pay 75K-100K more depending on where it was.

I'd say 95% of newer homes (built in the last two years) are located in gated subdivisions. It would be at the very least, double what you would pay in North Port.

I agree with SoFLGal, North Port is the area to look if you want a newer or new home. There were many houses built on spec in North Port and many are being sold for less than you can build the same house today.

There are "good buys" in Venice but you're buying location and getting less house.
I'm seeing homes within walking distance to the beach listed and selling under $300k. They are older homes but it's been years since you could find that type of location in that price range.

Hi everyone, My husband and I will be relocating to Venice in May and I wanted to get some information on the area before the big move. We are currently living in the Bahamas and now with a new job offer, we are making the move. I am 28 and my husband is 26, we are expecting our first child and love outdoorsy type of activities. I am just a little concerned because I have heard that it is an older crowd and I dont know how easy it is to meat others around our age. Any feedback is super appreciated!

Peter's suggestion of Osprey, is a decent one. Mission Valley in Nokomis or Rivendell in Osprey are worth looking into.

In Palmer Ranch-Turtle Rock, Stonebridge, The Hamptons, Deer Creek are also worth a look.

Palmer Ranch one of Sarasota's most popular and largest master planned communities with over 10,000 acres. Palmer Ranch actually consists of many neighborhoods, all individually operated under their own HOA. The common areas of Palmer Ranch are maintained by a master association. The overall look and feel of PR is "green" - the roads are grass and treelined, the sidewalks wind throughout the entire community, and they have recently been able to add the Legacy Trail to the many great aspects. The Legacy Trail is a paved walking/biking trail that runs through the woods along the path of the old railroad track.

Palmer Ranch is districted for great schools, is only 10-15 minutes to the beach, and is next door to the mall, new 12-screen movie theater and a fantastic YMCA complex, including a huge waterpark. Palmer Ranch is very popular with families.

Silver Oak and Prestancia are going to be your more upscale neighborhoods. Silver Oak has a championship golf course, tennis, canoeing, nature and bike trails, clubhouse, pool/spa, exercise facility. All home sites back up to a lake or preserve. It is one of the newer neighborhoods in PR.

Prestancia has two championship golf courses, country club, etc. The boundaries for Prestancia are-Palmer Ranch Way, McIntosh and Beneva. It pretty much runs inside of those streets-it encompasses 565 acres.

Reymore St is the southern boundary for Palmer Ranch. The eastern boundary runs out to I-75, the western boundary goes to Beneva and the northern boundary runs nearly to Clark Rd. This tells a little more about Palmer Ranch: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmer_Ranch Within Palmer Ranch is CJ Lofino YMCA Complex. It has a full aquatic center, gym/fitness, basketball, swimming, tennis, and water park for the kids.
