Types of Sarasota Waterfront Properties

There are a variety of water front options in Sarasota, Siesta Key, Bird Key, Lido Key, Longboat Key and Bradenton areas. You could live near author Stephen King in a palatial beach front estate on Casey Key or on a small pond in a starter home. Both homes are considered to be on the water. We often get requests for a "waterfront home" or "waterfront condo". These people generally mean either the beach or boatable water. Below are the various types of Sarasota waterfront homes. They start with the least expensive first and end with the most expensive (beach). 

Lakes, Ponds and Creeks

You don't have to be a millionaire to own a Sarasota waterfront home. In fact, there are quite a few condos and home options on a lake, pond or creek. These bodies of water do not offer boating to the bay or gulf. This water is simply there for visual enjoyment. These views beat looking into the back of another house or a busy road. These are the most affordable waterfront properties in Sarasota

Canals

Prices jump up considerably when you can offer the home owner boating access. These Sarasota waterfront homes sell for more than the average. Some of the most expensive canal front homes are located on Bird Key and start around $1 million. There are more affordable options in other areas of Sarasota. You will be hard pressed to find anything less than $400,000. Canal homes are more affordable as you leave Sarasota and enter into Bradenton and Venice

Bay

The expansive bay views are in high demand and thus can be quite expensive. In the more desirable areas of Sarasota expect to pay a minimum of $2 million for unobstructed water views. Some of these communities include Harbor Acres, Country Club Shores and St. Armands Circle. However, you don't need to spend that much to get a nice home on the bay. There are some great bay front values in nice neighborhoods like Southpointe Shores, Whitfield Estates, and Coral Cove. The bay front makes some of the most expensive Sarasota waterfront homes. 

Gulf/Beach

Living on a sandy, walkable beach is going to be the most sought after and thus expensive waterfront homes in Sarasota. Most dream of a nice home with majestic beach and Gulf of Mexico views from the living room. Some communities where you can find a nice beach home include Sanderling ClubPoint of Rocks, and Gulfmead Estates on Siesta Key, Lighthouse Point on Longboat Key, Lido Shores on Lido Key and of course the wonderful homes on Casey Key

Water View vs Water Access

Are you looking for boat or beach access or do you just simply want a wonderful water view? If you are in a downtown condo you can get a fabulous water view without actually being directly on the water. Downtown Sarasota offers a variety of condo options that provide those majestic water views that you seek. Lido Key, Siesta Key and Longboat Key also offer a variety of condos with water views. These are typically on the beach or bay.
