The Venice Real Estate Market

The Venice MLS inventory is brimming with properties of all types and price ranges.  But single family Venice homes priced under $350K are especially popular, thanks to market conditions that have enabled many buyers to escape the rental scene.  As elsewhere across Florida, lender-mediated listings such as bank-owned homes and short sales are abundant and are serving to keep prices down.  As this type of inventory dwindles, you can expect prices to go up.

Other types of real estate in Venice, FL for sale include beach properties on Venice Island built in the 1980’s.  You can also find some nice homes on golf courses priced as low as $300-350K, as well as some older and newer single family Venice homes with beachfront for as little as $700-800K.  New construction on the mainland by prominent builders such as DR Horton, Lennar, and Neal Communities offer newer homes that start at jaw-dropping low prices around $220K or so.

At Home in Venice

Buy real estate in Venice and you will always have plenty of things to do.  Own a Venice home and you will have quick access to wonderful beaches that offer all kinds of water sports – swimming, boating, snorkeling, surfing. Venice Beach is famous for the shark teeth you can pick up on the beach. South of the pier you will find a beach for dog lovers, the only one in the area. The pier is always packed with people who like to fish. If you don’t have luck to catch one, you can sit at “Sharkeys” enjoy fresh fish, a drink and listen to live music.

A stroll at downtown Venice brings you to nice restaurants and art shops. You will love the old fashioned “Soda Fountain” on Venice Ave. The newest addition is “The Pineapple Restaurant” with great food, live entertainment and a big outdoor area and a huge bar with a big variety of tap beer.
