Real Estate in Venice Florida

This charming and quaint community on the gulf coast is known for its great cultural events, but also for its breathtaking beaches. One of the most intriguing aspects of this unique beach community is that ancient shark teeth regularly wash up on its shores. Venice is widely known as the shark tooth capital of the world, and has been washing up on their beaches for centuries. It is thought that ancient shark burial grounds are located just off Venice’s shores, resulting in hundreds and hundreds of shark teeth coming into shore. These teeth are generally black, brown or gray and range in size from 1/8 of an inch to 3 inches long. Shelling is also a favorite pastime for Venice residents, and after a storm their beaches are littered with hundreds of shells and teeth.

Venice has four great beaches to visit; Brohard Paw Park, Casperson Beach, Venice Municipal Beach and Nokomis Beach. Brohard Paw Park is a dog friendly beach with drinking fountains, showers, decks, fire hydrants and leash posts for your favorite K-9. This has been called the best dog friendly park in Florida by many and is the only beach area in Sarasota County where dogs may roam free. Casperson Beach is the longest beach in the county and is located just south of Venice Airport. This is the beach to visit if you long for a secluded and unspoiled natural setting and also a great place to look for sharks teeth. In fact, Casperson Beach is the site for the annual Sharks Tooth and Seafood Festival. Venice Municipal Beach is also an ideal location to look for shark teeth, and is visited by divers all over the world for their coral reef, located ¼ mile off shore. Nokomis Beach is considered to be the family friendly beach of the four and is the oldest beach in the county. It is a great place for a barbecue, swimming, shelling, sunning, boating, fishing or just enjoying a day of leisure.

Venice is also an ideal location for boating and fishing enthusiasts because there is water, water, and more water as far as the eye can see! In fact, beautiful waterfront properties are abundant in Venice, making it easy for you to find a beautiful home where you can dock your sea vessel right in your own back yard. This corner of the Gulf of Mexico is notorious for its great fishing, with over 1,000 species living off of Venice’s shores, including red snapper, tarpon, grouper and other game fish. Venice is quite literally a boaters’ paradise and even if you don’t own your own boat, there are many for rent or for charter so anyone can enjoy exploring the sparkling blue waters of the gulf.

Vacationers in the know also flock to Venice because of its proximity to great attractions and its myriad of beautiful gulf beaches. This is an ideal location for purchasing a piece of investment property, whether you intend to rent to vacationers or as a winter or vacation home for yourself. Venice is known for its relatively large “snowbird” population, making rental homes and condominiums in this area very profitable. Waterfront homes in Venice are also considerably lower in price than other popular areas like nearby Sarasota and Naples, but with the same spectacular gulf views and beautifully constructed and landscaped homes.

Venice remains one of those little known gems on Florida’s gulf coast, and is an ideal beach community for families, winter residents and retirees alike. With a booming real estate market, you are sure to find just the single family home, condominium, townhouse, lot or land or luxury estate that you have been looking for. Whether you are looking for a beautiful and culturally aware center or vibrant waterfront community to live in, Venice has something for everyone.
