That is a great area, one of my favorites in Sarasota. If it's the house I am thinking of, it's really a beautiful property.

Default Sarasota

I am a residential appraiser in the area, so I know the area pretty well and depending on what they mean by north of downtown Sarasota can be good but also you need to know exactly where it is....If it is south of University Ave and north of Fruitville, and it is definitely west of the trail...you should be ok. The area north of downtown east of 41 to US301 is not the best....lower income area

You said you were relocating to Sarasota area, and if you are working in this area Englewood is far away. It would be a long drive to communte. If you area looking for an unique apartment - I would suggest downtown Sarasota - there are older homes renovated. There is a lot going on in the Sarasota area - festivals, theatre, arts and culture, restaurants, beaches, marina, etc...

Also - $800/month is standard...most places are around that price. There is so much available for rent because of the current market conditions. I wouldn't settle. Negotiate.

I\'m told some of houses next door sell for $450,000 and there is a mix with nicely kept more modest homes. 2) A 1bed cottage (in a duplex) in the resort community called \"Tiki on the Bay\" in Englewood (on Lemon Bay). I\'m told in the 1950\'s it used to be a motel and kind of has an \"old Florida feel\" with a pier overlooking the bay, tiki hut, pool, small private beach. Both options 1 & 2 rent for about $800/month. I\'m the type that enjoys the more unique rental, privacy, and not so much the big \"cookie cutter\" condo/apt. complexes (even with all the amenities). Can you comment on pros and cons of these 2 areas please? Thanks -
