With median home prices approaching $405K in Manatee County, smart home buyers are exploring more affordable opportunities north of the Manatee River, especially in the historic and picturesque city of Palmetto, which is a favorite of Hollywood film directors who wish to portray the lifestyle of the Florida Gulf Coast.
