Good Afternoon to All and Many Thanks to Every One who has found a common thread in my blogs about the Beautiful Sarasota / Bradenton / Venice Area! Best Wishes for an Amazing New Year as we swing into January!
We're getting a taste of Winter as another Polar Vortex blasts into the state from Canada's border in an attempt to share Jack Frost's company! But we'll have none of that as we bravely bundle up for a few days and wait out the chill! I see forties in our future... BRRRRR (calling L.L.Bean!) OK, OK so it's only the overnight forecast, but that's COLD FOR FLORIDA!!!
I'm sure it feels balmy to the Michiganders, Ohioans, New Yorkers and Dakotans! Well that's GREAT! Come on down and let's pick out your very own Piece of Paradise!
If you feel overwhelmed and need to sort out your options, you can call our Team to discuss the TRUE 3 "L"s of Real Estate. It's not simply Location, Location, Location any longer!
Let us help you build your new story around LOCATION, LIFESTYLE, and standard of LIVING!
The LOCATION might be the Number One Criteria. In MOST cases, the WHERE can't be changed. (Notwithstanding moving a home to a different lot, etc...) Impacts: Profession, School, Healthcare, Family Proximity, Commute. When a home is purchased outside of the Target Market, one of the "L"s has to flex.
The Standard of LIVING is predicated by Lifestyle but fulfilled by physical Location. WHAT one can accept as the minimum level of comfort, function and beauty to live happily and successfully is always evolving on an individual basis, but not as fast as Lifestyle changes.Impacts: Area Cost of Living, Personal Wealth, Community Assets.
The LIFESTYLE is tied to the Standard of Living and supported by the Location. HOW ones lives life can determine the Location, but adjustments are easier to make to Lifestyle than Location. Impacts: the Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Volunteerism, Family Pursuits.
You decide what takes precedence with you and your family! Then we create a strategy to find the right home for you here in Sensational Sarasota, Beautiful Bradenton or Vibrant Venice!
Clients provide the WHO, WHAT, WHY and HOW of the equation. We help them with the WHEN and WHERE in writing the next chapter of their life story.
Call us to visit Sarasota and discover WHY it’s such a special place to live!
