Sarasota Heights has a 10.0% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 64.0% of American neighborhoods).

Either way, if you live here year round, you will find many of the homes or apartments are empty for all or a portion of the year.Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics

After the end of World War II, as GIs came home, bought newly built homes on the edges of cities with the help of the GI Bill, and began their families.
