With median home values close to $270K, Venice is one of the leading Sarasota County housing markets in terms of value appreciation, but you can still find opportunities far below the average price if you look in the right neighborhoods. Waterside Village is a good example of a gated community where two-bedroom villas with two full bathrooms and more than 1,150 square feet of interior can be negotiated under $200K, but you have to stay on top of listings because they sell fast.
Conveniently located west of Jacaranda Boulevard and south of East Venice Avenue, Waterside Village is just a 10-minute drive to the beach. This low-rise condominium consists of about 200 units split into townhomes and villas neatly arranged along many lakes, ponds, and nature preserves. The community is called Waterside for a good reason: Virtually all homeowners can enjoy nice water views from their porches or covered balconies.
Development of Waterside Village started in the late 1990s and continued through 2006. Thanks to manicured tropical landscaping, Italian architecture, and amenities such as three swimming pools and pickle ball courts, life at Waterside Village is akin to living in a private resort; plus, the reasonable homeowners association fees provide a maintenance-free lifestyle.
Being surrounded by nature preserves and the northeast section of the Pelican Pointe Golf and Country Club, Waterside Village offers plenty of privacy. The gates are located along Hatchett Creek Boulevard, which means that homeowners are not bothered by traffic on Jacaranda Boulevard, which happens to be the road that takes you to a shopping center where you will find a Publix supermarket, CVS Pharmacy, a coffee shop, and even a British-style pub. Retirees and golf enthusiasts tend to take advantage of living next to Pelican Pointe and become members.
You cannot go wrong with Waterside Village listings. Homeowners are known to take excellent care of their units, and many have been upgraded in recent years with new floors, remodeled kitchens, and HVAC system replacements. With property values increasing across Venice, this community offers some of the best deals in 2020.
