December 7, 2009

Stoneybrook on Palmer Ranch is an excellent choice for investment and enjoyment.  As one of Sarasota’s most affordable gated country club communities it is made even more desirable by it’s close proximity to the beaches of Siesta Key.  Sarasota Square mall is also very close by.  The clubs amenities include restaurant, pools, fitness center tennis and many social activities.  Currently there are 42 condominiums for sale ranging in price from $169,900 to $335,000.  The average price is $236,811.  Because of the amenities, transferable golf memberships and proximity to the beach these condominiums are readily rented for the winter season.  This year 18 condos were sold in Stoneybrook at an average selling price of $239,550.  On average the properties sold garnered 92% of their sales price.  For more details about the available properties, click here.
