Artistry | New Homes for Sale Feb 2018 Update | Sarasota FL

The last time I updated you on Artistry new homes in Sarasota was back in November 2017.  Since then, a lot of new construction progress has been made.

The community pool is about 90% completed, and a large group of new home sites has been released for sale.  Artistry set out to be different from the prevalent Mediterranean-themed architecture found in our area's new home construction.  Artistry is marketing themselves as more contemporary, but you may have to look past some of the over-the-top decorator elements in the model homes to appreciate their floor plans.


For more about Artistry, including floor plans, pre-construction homes for sale, and HOA fees, visit my website www.sarasotadavid.com/artistry-sarasota-homes-for-sale.

Zillow | Local Real Estate Marketing | Sarasota FL

More in the news today about Realtors afraid of Zillow. The problem is not data; it's how we present real estate data to potential customers online. After all, Zillow doesn't have any data we don't give them.

Zillow does a good job at presenting public information in a friendly user interface. There are not enough individual Realtors who understand user experience and online marketing, who are ready to take on the hyper local marketing necessary to combat Zillow and their 3,200 employees in their Seattle skyscraper. Gathering local information about condos, neighborhoods, new homes, videos, photos, schools, nearby attractions and amenities, is a lot of work, but it's necessary.


I decided a while ago to take on Zillow with local information, exclusive HD video, and photography that only I can provide as a local Sarasota and Venice FL Realtor. Visit my websites for a true picture of our real estate that only a local Realtor can provide.
