When real estate professionals in Sarasota County think about communities that offer true value for homeowners, they immediately think of Nokomis. This micro-housing market is located south of Sarasota and north of Venice, and it consists of a coastal area that extends inland towards nature preserves.
With waterfront properties in high demand and short supply around Sarasota County, Nokomis offers very reasonable options. This is a town that features two bays, a few large creeks, numerous canals, and many lakes. Easy access to the Intracoastal Waterway makes Nokomis very attractive for boaters and anglers, but many families also choose to live in this quiet town due to its quality of life.
Nokomis is home to neighborhoods such as Calusa Lakes, Bay Point, Willow Chase, and Shakett Creek. These are single-family home communities that have been lovingly developed by local award-winning home builders such as Lee Wetherington. House hunters will also find maintenance-free villas and condos next to Old Florida cottages and ranch-style homes. A few years ago, Nokomis was mostly known to attract snowbirds and retirees; these days, the community is far more diverse thanks to many families who have chosen to relocate here.
Nokomis started out as a beach town, but the inland residential development trend in the 21st century has concentrated on creating gated communities with very spacious and upscale homes that can be purchased for less than in other sections of Sarasota County. The eastern neighborhoods are connected to Venice by means of the Legacy Trail, a pedestrian and bike path that offers miles of recreation.
Home buyers in Nokomis who enjoy nature can find homes tucked away in forest patches or near freshwater ponds. Some neighborhoods even feature nature trails and kayak launches. Casey Key and the Oscar Scherer State Park are also popular among lovers of the outdoors in Nokomis.
Residents of Nokomis do not have to travel far for their basic needs. Schools, medical centers and commercial districts are located near the major thoroughfares that connect Nokomis to Osprey. Some neighbors travel to Venice or Sarasota for work, to attend college classes or for the nightlife, but most people who live in Nokomis find everything they need in terms of shopping and entertainment close to their communities.
