Sarasota Maintenance-Free Homes – Sarasota Fl. Real Estate
Some Sarasota home buyers are looking for retirement or vacation homes that are specifically located in “maintenance-free” communities. Sarasota maintenance-free communities refers to the neighborhood’s homeowners association taking responsibility for a list of exterior tasks to be completed on a specified community maintenance schedule.
For some Sarasota maintenance-free communities, the homeowners association is responsible for each residence’s lawn, landscaping, exterior painting, and roof maintenance. In other maintenance-free communities, the association may only be responsible for lawn and landscaping. It is important to review the specific maintenance items that each community is responsible for maintaining in order to make an informed decision.
Many buyers start out searching for Sarasota maintenance-free home communities specifically, however make the switch to a broader search for homes that include non-maintenance communities as well in order to find a much wider selection of homes. In many cases, homes will have much lower HOA fees in communities that are not maintenance-free, and in these cases, the buyer can always hire a landscaper to perform scheduled grass cutting and occasional landscaping maintenance.
Also, it is important to know that many communities offer both maintenance and non-maintenance free sections within the same community, so individual listings shown on this maintenance-free neighborhoods page may or may not actually be in the maintenance-free section of the community. Our website shows the communities that are known to offer maintenance-free homes and villas, however not all listings in each community may be in the maintenance-free section.
