Ring in October and 2018-19 season

by Roger Pettingell

Changes as we approach peak season

Updated information on construction, quarterly figures and new listings

Peak Season listings in REALTALK™ #182
The strategy for new listings as we head into the "shoulder" season, discussed in REALTALK™ #182

After 35 years selling real estate on Longboat Key and Sarasota we have learned a thing or two about setting up for peak season which begins in October. At present the inventory is low but I have a good feeling that is about to change for the better. We have signed a number of listing contracts that will offer a good variety of single-family homes and residences. We will also have a good price range for buyers.

The housing market is faring well too. The Florida Realtors trade group released its second quarter figures for Manatee and Sarasota counties, reporting that median price of single-family homes rose 5.4 percent to $294,990 and residences rose 6.6 percent to $218,000. There are other significant trends for happy home owners. The Longboat Key budget is to pass its fiscal year budget today with no recommended increases in property taxes.

Inventory is also looking upward with the development of the Longboat Key residences that are currently underway. Your first drive from the south on Gulf of Mexico will have this progress in full view, new roadwork to reroute Longboat Club Road by the Chart House Restaurant and our office. This will pave the way for Ocean Properties and its 90 new residences with 250 hotel room complex. A short drive north and you will see the demolition of the old Colony Beach and Tennis Resort. In its place will be 78 condominiums and 166 hotel rooms operated by the prestigious St. Regis company. Travel to the mainland to Tamiami Trail and you will also see the ground broken for the redevelopment of the Quay area in downtown Sarasota, beginning with a new Ritz-Carlton building and 73 new residences that will be connected to the existing Ritz-Carlton by an overhead walking bridge.

A preview of some of the $40 Million in 21 new listings by Halloween

Here is a preview of homes that I have coming onto the market, some as early as next week. The first is a waterfront home with direct bay access in beautiful Cherokee Park on the south end of Sarasota, close to downtown at 1509 South Lodge Drive. This spacious 4BR/5BA home with 5,800 square feet of living space built in 2005 will list at $4,995,000.

Another home with a lot of space and bedrooms will go on sale next week has 10,335 square feet of living space, with plenty of bedroom space for family and friends with 7 bedrooms and 8 bathroom. It is another newer built home in 2000 listing for $3,995,000 at 1744 Seminole Drive in the Sarasota community of McClellan Park. A home in San Remo Estates at 1363 Tangier Way is a 3 bedroom home with 3 full baths and 2,899 square feet of living space set for the market at $2,995,000.

I have three homes in different areas coming on the market in the $800,000 range. On Longboat Key in Country Club Shores, listing at $895,000 is a 3 bedroom and 3 bath home on the canal with 1,918 square feet of living space. Country Club Shores has always been a community with good valued homes. Returning to Sarasota, this single-family home at 76 Osprey Point Drive in the Oaks is a light and bright 3 bedroom home with 5 bedrooms and spacious 4,364 square feet that I featured in my REALTALK™ #180 video last week, a discussion of the Oaks Bayside. It will list as a good value home for $849,000. The third home in this price range is at 4646 Hidden Forest Drive, with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and 3,472 square feet of living space priced at $779,000.

415 L’Ambiance Dr, #C604
415 L’Ambiance Dr, #C604 - $2,395,000

If you like the maintenance-free lifestyle that a condominium presents, I have you covered there too. These three residences offer high quality living on the Gulf of Mexico sandy white beaches, where the amenities are many and the sunsets that will take your breath away. Built in 1992 L’Ambiance on the southern end of Longboat Key combine luxury with many amenities in a great location. The 2 bedroom, 3 Bath residence with 2,820 square feet, Gulf and Links on Longboat golf views in a Sabal floor plan at 415 L’Ambiance Dr, #C604, listing for $2,395,000. Just a short drive up Longboat Club Road is a residence with many of the similar amenities on the Gulf at 535 Sanctuary Drive, #B705. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath residence will list for $1,499,000. Near the heart of Longboat Key shopping with a Publix and CVS is the residence at 2675 Gulf of Mexico Dr, #501 in the Veinte community which will list for $1,250,000. On the beach, what more could you ask?

Check our website in the next weeks as these and other listings will return to the market. With any of these listings coming on the market soon, please contact me at (941) 387-1840 for an exclusive showing this week before they go on the market.

Protecting your waterfront property and boat

by Roger Pettingell

Beauty and recreation on the waterfront

Boat lifts and davits, with special seawall information for home owners

Two sets of boat lifts at 1449 Hillview Drive
Two sets of lifts - This home for sale at 1449 Hillview Drive in Harbor Acres has two sets of boat lifts

We love great water views. The bay, Gulf and intracoastal provide great vistas from sunrise to sunset. The sound of the waves lapping up on the shore is a great way to relax. It can also be a great resource for recreation, boating, kayaking or a thrilling ride on a Jet Ski. When it is time to protect your precious belongings and views, you look to the experts.

And there are great companies here in Sarasota to protect your seawall, build docks that will last for years, and offer solutions to protect your watercraft with lifts or davits. If you are moving from a landlocked property to the waterfront we hope that you will find some of the information in this article to be useful.

Even moving from an area where you may not have had problems by leaving a boat in the water, there are some concerns here with salt, waves and creatures that can cause problems underneath. You can avoid the harmful effects by lifting your boat out of the elements. You can ask advice on which is better for your situation, either a lift or davit.

For personal use with your own dock you can choose a lift, typically for boats from 1,600 pounds to as high as 60,000 pounds. If you are lucky enough to have a boat over 30 tons you should consider professional storage. That is approaching super yacht size. You can determine the weight by consulting your manufacturing specs for dry weight, then adding the weight of full fuel and water capacity along with any gear storage. Your consultant can determine an additional margin of error, typically around 20 percent.

There are different types of boat lifts to consider. The common cradle lift allows you to pull the boat between a set of pilings, then raise the boat out of the water with motors on each side pulling the cradle up through a series of cables. With this type of lift you should consider other factors. The length and width of the boat will determine the distances between the pilings. The lift height will account for such considerations such as tide variations and extreme weather or wave conditions.

Cradle lifts can be designed for boat usage such as pontoon, pleasure craft, fishing boats or even sailboats. They can be used with motors that are remote and automatic for lift, but also by using the mechanical advantage in large wheel construction for smaller boats. A cover as a roof of the lift is also useful to keep the area above the waterline from being exposed to the elements. These canopies also help prevent damage from bird droppings.

There is another type of lift that is becoming popular for smaller boats up to pontoon size. Floating boat lifts can be an economical solution worth considering. The boat operator simply pulls up to the dock with a floating lift, then powers the boat up onto the floating dock. There may be a center to line up v-hull boats so the boat is evenly distributed on the float. To help start the boat on this guide there may a cutout section on the stern to help funnel the boat to the center and to provide an area for the lower unit. Then the propeller can be raised or trailered so that it is kept out of water. Personal Water Crafts (PWC) are popular docking uses of floating lifts.

Boat davits can be mounted on seawalls, docks or on pilings. Useful for PWCs and smaller power boats, davits are matched to its construction type by the weight and surrounding conditions. A davit that mounts to a seawall can lift more weight while dock mounted davits may be able to lift only 1,000 bls. An average Jet Ski, or PWC, is roughly 850 pounds.

Davits act like a crane that pivots the boat into its place. Some actually rotate 360 degrees for maximum usage. They also have other uses. A boat davit can be installed on a yacht or sailboat to hoist a small dinghy out of the water. A boat owner with a nonambulatory guest can have a davit rigged to safely board the guest. They can also be used to lift heavy objects such as batteries onto the boat.

Cost differences aside, most boat owners prefer lifts over davits. A davit used to hoist a boat out of water leaves the boat open to swaying in the wind. If used in tandem, davits can be used like lifts for more stability. Spreader bars can also be rigged on davits to make the boat more stable out of water. Some single davits are useful if they can swing the stern over land for easier engine and propeller maintenance. There is a lot to consider if choosing between a boat lift or davit. A reputable dealer can offer suggestions depending on your situation.

Marina and Moorings of the Longboat Key Club
Modern Seawall Techniques - Special guest Jim Smith of Custom Dock & Davit in Sarasota discusses seawalls in this REALTALK™ #179 episode

One thing to consider in your lift selection is your seawall. Seawalls protect the properties from soil erosion due to wave and storm surges. A typical seawall is made of a concrete base that is anchored to the property. A special machine drills a horizontal fastener that attaches to a tieback rod. A concrete cap protects the seawall from damage above. Last week I had a good conversation about seawalls with Jim Smith of Custom Dock & Davit of Sarasota as a special episode of REALTALK™.

Jim explained basic seawall design in our discussion. He was then able to compare construction designs of 50 years ago to modern techniques that have a 50 year limited lifetime warranty. Once the cap is removed, he demonstrated the new technology that involves driving an interlocking PVC corrugated panel into the seabed. Concrete or seashells fill the space for three layers of seawall protection. The cap and anchoring system is then restored.

We also discussed the differences in prices and construction restrictions by comparing Bird Key to Country Club Shores. He explained these restrictions may be changing within the Sarasota and Longboat Key jurisdictions as they prepare for predicted higher water levels. The information is excellent and is worth checking out at REALTALK™ #179. We can help with your dock, davit, lift and seawall plans. Please contact me at (941) 387-1840 if you have a property to sell or buy.

Arts and Quirky Annual Festival Schedule

by Roger Pettingell

Annual festivals for many occasions

Sarasota events that feature the arts and sports culture of the city

Sarasota Opera House
Many of the activities of the Sarasota Film Festival and other events will be held at the Sarasota Opera House.

Now that we are approaching peak tourism season and the snowbirds are planning their return, we can look at the upcoming festivals that will attract millions to the area. From the now defunct Ringling International Arts Festival (RIAF) in October to the Englewood Pioneer Days that recently concluded, the area has something for everyone as one festival ends and another begins. Many of these festivals center on the arts. In November last year the Ringling Museum startled the city by announcing plans to halt the RIAF after nine seasons.

Area venues will pick up the slack with a variety of Oktoberfest celebrations hosted locally by breweries that have sprung up in recent years. Mandeville Beer Garden pre-empts the slate with the first on September 29. Select from 11 German beers on tap from 11 AM to midnight. At 2 PM on that Saturday Calusa Brewing in Sarasota offers authentic Bavarian beers and cuisine. Monday, October 1, the Suncoast Oktoberfest has it all for German heritage complete with three German bands, chicken dance, stein hoisting and costume competitions, along with a good variety of beer and food. The fun starts at 11 AM in the Westfield Sarasota Square Mall. Get a true feeling of the Munich atmosphere October 6 at Mr. Beery’s in Sarasota. Save your costume and stein hoisting techniques for more prizes at this festival that starts at 3 PM and extends to midnight. October 27 the fun continues with the Oktoberfest at the British Open Pub in Venice, from 4 to 10 PM and at the two-day downtown Sarasota Oktoberfest starting at 10 AM each day.

The attention then shifts to pumpkin festivals, multi-day events to prepare us for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Many of these festivals have stood the test of time. The 30th Annual Fruitville Grove Pumpkin Fest is held over four consecutive weekends in October, beginning with the first on October 6 and 7. This family-friendly event has many activities for children and a live band starting at 4 PM each day. Extending over three weekends, the Hunsader Farms Pumpkin Festival offers similar activities for children and adults beginning at 10 AM each date. The festival is in its 27th year at the farm off County Road 675 in Sarasota, ten miles east of Interstate 75.

Lido Shores Umbrella House
Rudolph's Umbrella House in this 2015 renovation

We celebrate some of the best architects in the area in a series of fall keynote speeches, panel discussions and architectural tours. I do sell real estate, after all and the architecture in Sarasota is widely known. SarasotaMOD is a weekend tribute to great local architects such as Paul Rudolph and Tim Seibert. Held each fall, the sixth annual schedule has not been announced by the Sarasota Architectural Foundation. The prestigious Sarasota School of Architecture is attributed with many of the honorees and its mid-century modern architectural designs.

Over the next couple of months one- and multiple-day festivals fill the weekend schedules to celebrate religious themes and holidays. One of the biggest one-day festivals is Fright Night on St. Armands Circle, held every year on the night of Halloween. The highlight of this special evening has been the traditional dance to the song Thriller in the center circle, performed by Sarasota High School drama and theater students. We have been told this is to be their last year so make sure to catch it. It is a Thriller.

One of the biggest festival draws is the Sarasota Chalk Festival, moved five years ago from downtown Sarasota to the Airport Festival Grounds in Venice. Each year professional and amateur artists visit from around the world in competition to create masterpieces using chalk on pavement. The theme this year is Garden of Wonder, four days from November 9-12. Another big draw on those same days using a different medium is the Siesta Key Crystal Classic Master Sand Sculpting Competition. Sand sculptors from around the nation assemble on the beach to create artwork, visible to the viewing public starting at 10 AM each day. The first Saturday each May, amateurs display their sand sculpting talents in competitions of several categories on the fine sands of Siesta Key beach. The 2019 festival will represent the 47th year of this event.

Marie Selby Lights in Bloom celebration
Lights in Bloom - A month-long annual event to ring in the new year at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.

The Lights in Bloom celebration at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is a collection of over one million holiday lights to transition us to the new year. This year from December 20 to January 6 special events will be held to enjoy the spirit of the season, and each night the local popular band SoulRCoaster will perform for its guests. There are plenty of holiday festivals and performances that brings us into the new year, catch our upcoming events schedule which lists over 600 events through June 23, 2019.

Advertised as Florida’s finest, the Wine and Food Festival January 24-28, 2019 features a series of classes, winemaking events, food demonstrations and wine tastings. The Forks and Corks Grand Tasting will be held January 27, 2019 in the main courtyard of the Ringling Museum. This popular event can be sold out so set your calendar for November 5 when tickets go on sale. We do love our wine festivals so set the dates of April 4-7, 2019 for the Florida Winefest & Auction. Over the years this benefit auction has funded 85 local children's charities with over $8.5 million.

The Sarasota Film Festival is the Sundance Film Festival of Florida. For a week and a half, April 5-14, 2019 films and special events attract film fans to see selected movies by local and international filmmakers. A huge kickoff film party begins all the activities, typically in the Sarasota Opera House setting. The red carpet parade can have stars made famous by their films portrayed during the festival. Over 200 films are selected with a morning through evening schedule at the Regal Hollywood 20 Theater in downtown Sarasota. In the past other events have been set on Lido Beach or the Ringling Museum.

The largest world whiskey festival in the United States, with over 250 whiskies from around the world, will take place April 10-13, 2019. Whiskey Obsession is a series of panel discussions, master classes, VIP tours, bartender academy on-site sales, cigar pairing and more in downtown Sarasota. A free Whiskey Rocks street party will take place on Main and Lemon the last night of the festival. A portion of the proceeds, in its seventh year, benefit the Child Protection Center of Sarasota.

The very serious, well almost serious, Shark Tooth Festival at the Venice Airport Festival Grounds, April 12-14, 2019 is a collection of vendors and entertainment to accentuate the popular shark teeth hunting activity in Venice. The Gator Creek Band is scheduled to play on Friday night. Venice Beach and the waters offshore contain a vast amount of small to large megalodon size teeth. A walk with a Florida snow shovel along the beach will generally reveal one or two shark teeth, but a conscious effort may uncover many more. A Florida snow shovel has a waist-high handle attached to a metal strainer, a popular item sold in local beach stores.

Classical concert students from around the world audition for a unique opportunity to learn from the elite masters in the annual Sarasota Music Festival, to be held June 3-22, 2019. While students match up with masters each day of the three-week period the public, the masters perform each Thursday in an Artist Showcase concert. Friday nights are highlighted with its Festival Concert series, typically classical masterworks compositions. Saturdays are devoted to full orchestration in the Saturday Symphony series, and may feature a visiting artist. The Rising Star students display their talents in Sunday matinee performances. Jeffrey Kahane is the festival music director. These concerts and lectures are held in the Sarasota Opera House and Holley Hall of the Beatrice Friedman Symphony Center.

Powerboats make their way out to the Gulf of Mexico
The Grand Prix Festival is a popular July attraction.

While the classic musical students and visiting artists are packing to return to their homes, the Sarasota PowerBoat Grand Prix Festival boats and fans are pulling into Sarasota. This nationally televised race event on July 7, 2019 will be broadcast on CBS, with a rebroadcast on July 22. The AquaX and Powerboat qualifying races on Saturday with finals on Sunday are best seen off the Lido Beach shores in the Gulf of Mexico. Now in its 35th year, the festival features the Bob Rizi Memorial Golf Tournament, car show, boat and PWC fun run, comedy night at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre, swimsuit contest, motorcycle charity ride and plenty of parties in downtown Sarasota and Centennial Park where the boats will be on display. The fireworks show on July 4 is one of the festival highlights.

For two weeks in August, Venice is alive with the Venice Cabaret Festival, short-run live performances in a black box theater. Local performers are on display with a series of plays and tributes to such notables as Frank Sinatra, sold-out performances in consecutive years by John Lariviere recreation of works from the Sinatra Songbook. The 2019 festival will be the seventh year of this series.

9-11 Flag Memorial
9-11 Memorial - Longboat Key remembers 9-11 with 2,977 flags lined the entire 11-mile length along Gulf of Mexico Drive, one flag for each victim. President George W. Bush stayed at the Colony Beach and Tennis Resort, Longboat Key, on September 10, 2001 and attended an event at Booker Elementary School in Sarasota when he was informed of the attack.

There are many arts, seafood and music weekend festivals in Sarasota throughout the year. Check our list of upcoming events to note which you might like to attend. There are also more somber events, including those tomorrow as a memorial to those who died in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

Beachplace - September Community Showcase

by Roger Pettingell

Amenities in a great beach location

Showcasing three newer listings for the month of September at Beachplace

REALTALK™ #76, the Beachplace community spotlight
Beachplace video - I highlighted this Gulf-front community in my REALTALK™ #76 video.

It’s been a year since we visited Beachplace, the community on Longboat Key overlooking the Gulf of Mexico with 11 buildings on 31 acres. And since we have three newer listings there, we can discuss the residences and the 1,450 linear feet of beach frontage that stretches along the southern end of the island. It is our Community Showcase XXVI for September.

Arvida Corporation, which had much to do with many developments in the area, built the community over three years from 1979 to 1981. Since then Beachplace has evolved into one of the most socially active neighborhoods on Longboat Key.

It’s location makes Beachplace very attractive to owners, who have a short drive north or south for fine dining. A shopping plaza with a Publix, Chase Bank and CVS pharmacy are within a short bicycle ride. This year the Ringling College of Art and Design announced plans to build an 18,000 square-foot Arts, Cultural and Education center in the same plaza where a restaurant once stood. The initial plans have been introduced to include a courtyard and amphitheater to separate two buildings that will include classrooms, computer lab, black box theater and arts gallery.

REALTALK™ #76, the Beachplace community spotlight
Columbia Restaurant - This award-winning restaurant with its rich history is in the heart of St. Armands Circle.

Being on the southern end of Longboat Key has other advantages for its location. The world renowned St. Armands Circle is a short distance. This active area has fine dining and boutique shopping, some of which I covered in my REALTALKplus™ article on St. Armands Circle and in this interview with Diana Corrigan, association executive director, in REALTALK™ #58. The Sarasota Yacht Club and the Ringling Bridge is all that separates St. Armands Circle and downtown Sarasota. There you will find more fine dining and the heart of the cultural arts center of the city. Within blocks of each other you will find the opera, orchestra performances and live theaters.

McCurdy’s Comedy Club downtown has just celebrated 30 years of high-class comedy. The Black Diamond Burlesque had its eight anniversary show last night. Upcoming performances are scheduled to include Jon Lovitz, Dennis Blair, Jay Mohr and Gallagher. The waterfront Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, with its world-class entertainment is also downtown.

But you may not want to leave Beachplace with all of its amenities. Relax on the beach or take a swim in the Olympic size pool before relaxing the warm-water spa. A fitness center with state-of-the art equipment is available to residents and guests. You can also practice your tennis finesse on any of the three Har-Tru courts of Beachplace. The peaceful lake has a fountain in its center that adds to its beauty.

Beachplace is also attractive to owners who desire an income-producing residence, as rentals are handled through third-party companies or on-site management. The 24/7 manned guard gate is the second level of security as visitors also checked at the gates of the Longboat Key Club roadway. There are four floor plans of two and three bedroom designs, ranging from over 1,800 to nearly 1,200 square feet. Many residences have their own laundry facilities.

Membership in the Longboat Key Club is a priority of some Beachplace owners. The location is sandwiched between two of its championship golf courses, Links on Longboat and Harbourside Golf Course. Members also have access to four fine restaurants, spas, swimming pool, tennis courts and special events.

All in all, Beachplace is a wonderful piece of paradise on Longboat Key.
