To continue our weekly features, we have a new Siesta Key community of the week! There are dozens of amazing condos, villas, and homes on this beautiful island!

This week's featured community is CRYSTAL SANDS

Address: 6300 Midnight Pass Road, Sarasota, FL 34242

# of units: 152

Year built: 1970

Minimum lease: 2 weeks

Leases/year: 26

Beach or Bay: Beach

About: The beautiful vista and the refreshing breeze of the Gulf of Mexico are just some of the fine things you have at your disposal, day and night, at the Crystal Sands condominium property. The property stands tall along Midnight Pass Road, one of Siesta Key Island’s major thoroughfares.

Inside the Crystal Sands neighborhood is a clubhouse, two heated swimming pools, and a barbecue grill. Residents will surely enjoy the fact that Crystal Sands is just adjacent to Crescent Beach, one of three frequently-visited beaches in Florida because of its powder-fine white sands. The other two beaches in the Siesta Key, Turtle Beach and Siesta Beach, are also only a short walking distance away. These beaches welcome an endless wave of tourists from the United States and the world over, which is why a number of facilities for boating, scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, and other water-based sports have been built as an answer to high demand.

Crystal Sands offers its residents the convenience of condo living as nearby are local establishments for shopping and dining. Beyond-the-beach adventures may be appreciated at Florida’s mainland, which is only a bridge away from the beautiful barrier island of Siesta Key.

For more information and available Crystal Sands properties, call us at 941-993-6565 or email us loveyoursiesta@gmail.com!

# of units: 101

Year built: 1970

Minimum lease: 1 week

Beach or Bay: Across the street from the beach

About: One of the most magnificent condominium complexes in the Siesta Key Island is Crescent Royale.

Additional amenities in the Crescent Royale include an Olympic-size heated swimming pool, barbecue and picnic groves, fitness center and sauna, shuffleboard facilities, table tennis, billiard table, and a multi-purpose room for social events.

A number of recreational activities may also be enjoyed in the beach premises such as swimming, boating, parasailing, fishing, and many more.

Have you been renting for a while and want to know where to start saving for your first home? Here are some tips:

1. Figure out what you can afford. Be realistic and factor in the monthly costs for repairs, property taxes and more you’ll face as a homeowner.
2. Talk to your Realtor about special financing programs. Many programs for
first-timers offer lower down payments and/or provide down- payment assistance.
3. Based on your research, determine how much you’ll need to save. Include closing costs in the figure.
4. Create a timeline for buying a home and then a budget to get you to your goal.
5. Pay off credit cards, auto loans and any personal loans. This will make it easier to get a mortgage at a lower rate.
6. Pay your down-payment fund first. Start a separate home-buying account and set up an automated transfer that moves a portion of each paycheck there as soon as the check is deposited. We love Qapital!
7. Look for creative ways to save faster. Cut back on luxuries and other costs where you can. Put windfalls, such as tax refunds, into your home-buying account. Consider working a part-time job.

To continue our weekly features, we have a new Siesta Key community of the week! There are dozens of amazing condos, villas, and homes on this beautiful island!

This week's featured community is CRESCENT ARMS

Address: 6308 Midnight Pass Road, Sarasota, FL 34242

# of units: 88

Year built: 1968

Minimum lease: 1 week

Leases/year: 52

Beach or Bay: Beach

About: Laze under the glorious Florida sun for that perfect tan in one of Siesta Key Island’s enviable condo residences. One such property is the Crescent Arms condominium complex, which was constructed in the years 1965 to 1968. It is one of the first properties developed in the eight-mile long barrier island of Florida.

Crescent Arms enjoys a strategic location along Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key’s major transportation artery that leads to just about everywhere enjoyable in the barrier island. Crescent Arms is very near Stickney Point Bridge, one of two causeways that link Siesta Key Island to the Florida mainland. Residents will enjoy the heated swimming pool inside the property’s premises.

Across the Crescent Arms community is Crescent Beach, naturally beautiful for its fine white sands. It is a more secluded option compared to Siesta Beach, which is one of the reasons why it is frequented by vacationers from the United States and all over the world.

Food craves and shopping impulses may be gratified at the nearby town centers of Crescent Village and Siesta Key Village. If a livelier atmosphere is desired, a short drive to downtown Sarasota is a must, with its endless options for shopping, dining, and entertainment.

For more information and available Crescent Arms properties, call us at 941-993-6565 or email us loveyoursiesta@gmail.com!

Thinking about buying a vacation home? Here are 9 tips to consider!
1. Consider how you’ll use the home.
Will it just be for family and friends,
or do you plan to rent it as well? And realistically, how many times will you use it per year?
2. Evaluate locations. Are there enough amenities and attractions to keep you— and renters—coming back year after year?
3. Talk to the locals and your Realtor. What do they love about the area? What’s changing? And what’s it like during the off season?
4. Study local laws. If you plan to rent the home, local rules may restrict rental periods or cap the number of days you can rent each year.
5. Calculate costs. Along with mortgage, insurance, property taxes and association or amenities fees, plan for wear and tear.
(A good rule of thumb: Budget 11⁄2 percent
of home’s value on repairs annually.) And if you intend to rent, add the cost of a property manager.
6. Talk to an accountant. This person can advise you on such issues as the tax implications of rental income and changes in federal tax laws that could impact deductions.
7. Test before you buy. Once you’ve settled on a spot, you should rent in every season so you can gauge busy and slow times.
8. Work with an experienced Realtor. Pick someone who knows the community and who can recommend
the other experts you’ll want to consult.
9. Take your time. Don’t let the excitement of one great vacation push you into an impulse decision to buy.

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY WEEKEND!!!!
➡️ Let’s hear your answers! ⬅️ .

I have been blessed with fabulous gifts over the years but my favorite would have to be last year when I was treated to a trip to Scottsdale, Arizona and stayed at the fabulous Omni Resort. 🌵 
My love for experiences far exceeds my desire for material items, although any and all gifts are gladly accepted 😂 
What was your favorite birthday gift?! 🎁

Tried the newest flavor #gelato, Ricotta with Honey and Mascarpone, from my favorite #gelateria, @madeinromeorganicgelato #siestakey. Delizioso! 🍨😋👌
