Someone from the area will know better,, but in my opinion from being in the area for a little while in the past,,,, Sarasota is not the money area, like Tampa is. Sarasota has some wealthier areas, but being mostly carnies in the area from being founded by the circus, the wealthy areas are slim. My suggestion would be to look towards the Tampa area or maybe the Braydenton area.
Not saying you won't do well in Sarasota, it's a beautiful area of Florida, and I would want to either be next to interstate 75 or be in the Bayfront area.
Good luck to you and you should do just fine in Sarasota. It is one of the places on my list to look to move to in the future.
