  Late bookers for vacation rentals in our area are in for a rude awakening.  After years of being able to find suitable lodgings on short notice, there is no room at the inn.  Following world-wide exposure of Siesta Key’s Beach as being rated the number one in the country, the rates have gone higher and the availability is almost non-existent on the island.  One of my potential buyers is now having to rent a home east of I-75, almost a 45 minute ride to the beach because he waited too long to lock in a beach property.  Occupancy in Venice has spiked from about 85% to 99% and the condos and homes on Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island are running full in February and March. This bodes well for buyers who will be searching out investment properties while they are vacationing here.  The q...

Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sandsculpting Competition held at America's #1 beach, Siesta Key Beach.  The Second Annual Siesta Key Crystal Classic Sandsculpting Competition was held this past weekend on beautiful Siesta Key Beach.  The weather was made to order and couldn't have been more picture-perfect.  Siesta Key Beach has been officially named the #1 beach in the United States and is the inspired location for this incredible competition.  The competition was a wonderful way to enjoy this spectacular beach, and money raised from the competition goes to the Mote Marine Laboratory's effort to save our endangered sea turtles through conservation and research. The five day event was held over Veteran's Day Weekend and inspired the Iwo Jima flag-raising sand sculpture to honor vete...

CLICK to Request Our FREE 48-page Short Sale eBook   Siesta Key Short Sale Agent Advice For Homeowners The thought of going through a Short Sale is intimidating to some, but I can assure you that it is far better than the alternative, a Foreclosure. Keep in mind that from the homwowner's perspective, a Short Sale is little different than a conventional property sale; the major differences being that the seller is required to provide the lender(s) with financial information in order to prove a hardship, and the entire process takes more time than a conventional sale, which is a result of all contracts and offers having to go through lender approval. However (and this is important) the homeowner need not worry about dealing with the buyers and lenders throughout the course of the Short S...
