Sarasota Among Top Metros to Retire Young

If you are considering Sarasota area as your retirement home, then you probably already know that the experts such as Money Magazine and Fox News constantly rank Sarasota as one of the "Top Places to Retire Young" as well as the "Nation's Best Small City" and one of the "Best Places to Retire."

Many reasons jump to the front of the list when asked why Sarasota is so popular among retirees. It could be the pristine weather and sugar-sand beaches, world-class art, culture and shopping or luxurious, resort-style communities. Now it's time to add another to that list. According to study done by BUILDER, Sarasota was recently listed among the top 10 metros for home buyers over the age of 55.

The study's data finds that the key motivators for baby boomers to buy in a city are location, low maintenance, walkability within the community and layout of the home, in that order.
