Sarasota Florida just made another list. This time Portfolio.com named the Sarasota/Bradenton area as the number 1 place to retire in the United States. To see available properties in the area, go to:  http://keith.sarasota-realty.com 

Portfolio.com used a six point formula to rank the top retirement destinations. Results of the survey for Sarasota/Bradenton show that:

  • Nearly 27 percent of its residents are 65 or older, the fourth-highest concentration of seniors in any market. That’s more than double the national average of 12.9 percent.
  • Bradenton-Sarasota has a median age of 48.1. A median is a midpoint, with half of all residents being older and half being younger. The national median age is 36.8 years.
  • Fully 95 percent of the seniors in Bradenton-Sarasota moved to Florida from another state. Only 53 percent of the elderly residents of a typical U.S. market were born out of state.

This choice of Sarasota as the number 1 place to retire comes on the heels of Barbara Corcoran, of The Corcoran Group Real Estate, saying on the Today Show that she considers Sarasota to be the number 1 area in the nation in which you can find the best real estate values. She had mentioned Sarasota on the show over a year ago and reiterated her position just recently that it is the place to purchase real estate.
