Southgate is an older section of Sarasota, built in the early 1960s. Many homes in Southgate feature more "retro" styling, and almost all are one story. The neighborhood is well kept-up, however, and is quickly becoming a place where more wealthy families, who like "fixer-upper" homes, reside. Property values in Southgate have skyrocketed in the last few years, and its close proximity to downtown, beaches, and shopping makes it a very desirable place to live.[citation needed]
