Are you searching for a luxury home in the Sunshine state, but unsure of where to look? Do you want to invest in waterfront homes or luxury homes in an area that justifies the price? If so, then you need to search for Sarasota luxury homes.

Sarasota is one of the United State's hidden gems. It's loaded with waterfront homes, new construction homes, and is near tourist destinations such as Siesta Key, Longboat Key, and Lido Key, some of the best beaches in the world. 

See below for an in-depth guide on how you can find the Sarasota luxury home of your dreams.

Learn the Areas

When people think of Sarasota, FL, their mind automatically goes to waterfront homes and sandy beaches. There is a lot more to Sarasota than that, however, and there are other luxury communities in the greater Sarasota area.

One community featuring luxury homes near the city of Sarasota is Lakewood Ranch, now the 2nd best-selling Master Planned Community (MPC) in the US. In Lakewood Ranch you can buy or build everything from new construction homes, lakefront homes, golf homes, townhouses, find condos for sale, you name it. 

Lakewood Ranch spans two counties, Manatee and Sarasota, and much of the community lies in the city of Bradenton. Bradenton boasts access to the beaches and barrier islands as well, including the infamous Anna Maria Island (locally known as AMI).

If you're looking to invest in a luxury home in an area on the rise, then Lakewood Ranch is a great choice. If you want to be at the beach in under 5 minutes then a luxury home in downtown Sarasota or Siesta Key might be a better option.

For those of you that need a downtown scene, Sarasota is a clear choice. Its downtown area is a perfect blend of business and pleasure. Main street is filled with incredible spots to eat, Lido Key is right over the bridge, and there are palm trees as far as the eye can see.
