Happier House Hunting with New Additions to the SPF Website!

The face of Sarasota is always changing, and that means any real estate resource worth its salt must adapt to the city's evolution. That's why the Sarasota Property Finders site has recently undergone an expansion, now offering the ability to browse listings of villas, townhouses, and newly-constructed homes!

As the economy improves, developers are back in action and builders are back to work. You can witness the changing landscape of the downtown area in real time as over 500 new residences are being added to the community, but there are also quite a few homes that have just become available -- and might be just right for you.

New homes ranging from under a hundred thousand dollars to well over eight million have come on the market lately, and it's exciting to see so many opportunities for those who want to make Sarasota home. With each new home that is built, we not only increase the property value of the surrounding homes and give a facelift to the encompassing neighborhood, but we also get to see a family get a new start. And with the variety of new homes available, it seems like there's a new start available for just about everyone.

These new homes also bring a change in the traditional housing for Sarasota. Where much of the building around here was once devoted to ranch-style houses, these days we are seeing a lot more villas and townhomes. A villa brings added luxury to a single-family home and creates an atmosphere of tasteful opulence that Sarasota residents have grown to love.

Townhomes have become extremely popular with young families and people who appreciate low-maintenance living. Whether they are located on one of the keys or in Sarasota's more urban communities, villas and townhouses are rapidly remaking the fabric of Sarasota housing.

And of course, as the practice of home-building advances, so do the techniques. As we have seen, buildings are a huge source of our power consumption, and newer homes are taking this into account. With improved standards for energy efficiency, high-performance windows and doors, and alternative power and appliances, new buildings are getting smarter and more green.

With Sarasota's rich cultural history of art and diversity, one of the most exciting aspects of these new buildings' development is the growth of architectural prowess. In each new building, whether it is a villa, townhouse, or condominium, we get to see new creative horizons pursued through building design and décor. 

If you're considering a move toward becoming part of the new face of Sarasota, take some time to browse some of the listings in new home construction. And if the idea of living in a villa or townhouse intrigues you, be sure to check out some of the fascinating amenities that are being integrated into these new homes. Explore by clicking the links below:
