There are great benefits of owning more than one property including:

  • Tax benefits and deductions
  • Long-term profits
  • Rental income
  • A head start on retirement

The key to getting the most out of your second home goes back to the three key elements in real estate: location, location, and location.

Southwest Florida has become a mecca for people to buy a second home and build immense wealth at the same time. If you’ve never been to Sarasota County, check out these seven special reasons you should consider buying a second home here.

1. Beaches

Sarasota County is lined with miles and miles of key islands and white sandy beaches. The sand here commonly referred to as sugar sand is so pure, soft, and white. The beaches here are so special, they have been voted the number one beaches in the country!

2. Arts & Culture

Sarasota County also offers you a variety of arts and culture for you to consume. Art galleries, theaters, opera, museums, and live music performances can be found every day of the week throughout the city.

3. Golf Courses

The golf courses here are lush, perfectly maintained, and designed with precision. If you love golf, you owe it to yourself to at least visit Sarasota County.

5. The Sunny Weather

Do you love shoveling snow and trudging through slush and mud? Of course not! There’s none of that nonsense in Florida. Instead, we get to enjoy easy, breezy sunshine nearly every day of the year. While rain is common, it usually only lasts long enough to create a rainbow.

6. Fishing and Boating

Snag yourself a snook right here in the harbor surrounding Marina Jack or venture further offshore and grab yourself a giant grouper to fry up for dinner. Craving some adventure? Rent a jet ski or try your hand at kite surfing. There are also plenty of ways to rent boats of all sizes by the hour, by the day, or for the year! Life in Florida is all about soaking up the sun, sand, and salt so get out there and make the most of it.
