Condos for Sale in River Strand: Thrice as Nice!

Condos for Sale in River Strand: Thrice as Nice!

With the new addition of the verandas in River Strand, buyers now have the opportunity to pick from three different style condos for sale in River Strand: 1) the terraces, 2) verandas, and 3) coach homes. This abundance of variety, with 9 different floorplans, gives the seasonal snowbird quite a few maintenance free options from the 100's to the mid 200's. The Herald Tribune readers' poll (a poll that distinguishes services and products in Sarasota and Manatee counties) announced River Strand as the winner of the Readers' Choice 2012/2013 for the best golf course community. What does that tell you? Well, for starters--River Strand is doing something right! Most notably, it tells me it is a fun community...isn't that what it's all about?

Among condos for sale in River Strand, the mid-rise condominium terraces have the most attractive price point. If you are looking to dip your toe in the market at a reasonable point, this is the place to be. They start in the mid 100's and the views are nothing short of breathtaking. Many of the terraces on the higher floors even have views of the Manatee River in addition to panoramic lake, preserve, and golf course views.

The verandas are the newest condos for sale in River Strand. They are a little bigger than the terraces and every floorplan comes with a den--and we all know that den can come in handy when friends and family come to visit...over and over again! The verandas start in the high 100's and top out in the low 200's. Again, there are no shortage of views in the verandas. With both front and back lanais, the veranda have a very expansive feeling. The top floor units also sport vaulted ceilings!

Finally, the old man of the group are the coach homes--but the incredible sales pace show that the coach homes certainly have not lost their luster. They coach homes feel more like single family homes than they do condos, which lends to their popularity. The coach homes range from 1800 square feet to 2100 square feet, and include a 2 car garage. Walking into the door feels like you are walking into your home up north...with the palm trees, of course!
