The U.S. News and World Report's annual "Top 10 Best Places to Live in the U.S." report has ranked Sarasota No. 9 in their 2021-2022 edition. The list ranks metro areas taking into account the job market, housing affordability, quality of life, desirability, and net migration ratings. The report noted Sarasota's "distinct vibe that's different from Florida's relative coastal cities, with its own vibrant arts scene, beachy atmosphere, and burgeoning food culture," specifically recognizing St. Armands circle and the "up-and-coming" Rosemary District. The U.S. News and World Report also ranked Sarasota as the 2nd fastest growing city in the U.S. and No. 5 on the list of "Safest Places to Live in the U.S."

As if these accolades weren't enough to prove the region's popularity, Lakewood Ranch was recognized as the Nation's Top Selling Community according to a mid-year survey by the national real estate firm RCLCO. There were 1,535 new homes sales through the end of 2020, surpassing last year's numbers by 83 percent. Lakewood Ranch homes offer more square footage per dollar compared to high-density cities in states like New York and New Jersey, prompting many of those residents to make the move and take advantage of the more than 1,000 businesses in Lakewood Ranch
