A post office called Palmetto has been in operation since 1868. Samuel Sparks Lamb is considered the “Father of Palmetto,” having surveyed and plotted the city at its outset and donated several plots of land. He owned a general merchandise store in town. Samuel Sparks Lamb was from Clarke County, Mississippi and would arrive in the area near the Manatee River in 1868 establishing Palmetto. The city received its name from the palmetto trees near the original town site. Palmetto would first be incorporated in May 1893 as a village with its first mayor being P.S. Harlee. Palmetto would be reincorporated as a city in 1897 and in the following years grew. In 1902 with the arrival of the railroad, the center of town moved from the waterfront to the Seaboard Air Line train station, served by Sarasota Branch from Turkey Creek near Plant City through Palmetto to ‘Bradentown‘ and Sarasota. By 1921, the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad would be operating a Tampa Southern Railroad Branch from Tampa to Palmetto and ‘Bradentown’.
Compiled during the late 1930s and first published in 1939, the Federal Writers’ Project‘s Florida guide listed Palmetto’s population as 3,043 and described it as:
on the north bank of the Manatee River, has low frame-and-brick business buildings and numerous clapboard houses. The riverfront is alive with fishing and pleasure craft. Much of the town’s income is derived from the packing and shipping of fruits and vegetables.— Federal Writers’ Project, “Part III: The Florida Loop”, Florida: A Guide to the Southernmost State (1947)
A dolomite mine existed in Palmetto on the Manatee River from the 1950s to 1974. Several failed attempts were made to redevelop the property. In 1974, the property was almost sold for residential development but the company backed out due to the economic recession that was occurring. In 1978, a proposal was made to create a residential community on the site. The site’s master plan contained a nationwide motel chain with a restaurant, high-rise apartments along the Manatee River, single-family houses, and a shopping center built around a lake created from mining activities. The former 214-acre dolomite mine site was bought by WC Riveria Partners. It was then redeveloped in 1998 as Riveria Dunes, a residential community with a marina, townhouses, and homes

Who Else Wants To “Sell My House Fast In Palmetto, Florida?”
Selling a house through a real estate agent is pretty common… but it’s not for everyone. For some folks, it costs too much money and takes too much time to sell through an agent. Yes, you might get a higher price selling on the market (although you might not), people are learning that it’s not always worth the cost or the time.
With an agent, you’ll pay to fix up your house, then you’ll wait months while they try to find a buyer (and you’ll pay bills the whole time), then you’ll pay a commission when it’s all said and done.
But there is another option, and that’s what we do at Manatee …
We buy houses directly from homeowners. We don’t list houses (like an agent does), which means you don’t need to fix up the house first, you don’t need to wait (we’re ready to buy right away), and there are no commissions or fees to pay.
Yes, it really is that simple!

Pros and Cons to Each of the Top 3 Ways of Selling a House
We’re here to help you make an informed decision. That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide for you to help you determine if Manatee might be a fit for your situation.
Selling a house using an agent:
Selling using an agent is the most expensive way to sell a house, however, depending on your situation, it might be the way you want to sell. If your house is in great condition, you have no urgency to sell, and you do not want to market and show the property yourself, this might be the best route to take.
Pros: You don’t have to market the property yourself. You also have someone else handling most of the paperwork for you. Additionally, you will usually get close to full market value.
Cons: This process takes longer, (about 3-12 months depending on location and market conditions) and is the most costly way to sell. You should expect to have cost about 10% to 15% after commissions, any buyer concessions, escrow fees, closing costs, and holding costs. (Taxes, insurance, mortgage interest).
Timeline: You should expect to sell the property in about 3 – 12 months, depending on the market.
Selling a house yourself (FSBO):
Selling FSBO takes work and time, but can save you some money. If you’re not in a rush, are familiar with the process of selling real estate, and your house is in great shape this might be a good choice for you. If you’re selling your house to a retail buyer, expect that people will be nitpicky about your house, especially in Palmetto, Fl.
Pros: You’ll save money. This is one of the less expensive ways to sell a house and is generally about 3% to 8% cheaper than selling using a real estate agent depending on how long it takes you to sell.
Cons: FSBO’s typically take the longest to sell. You should expect 3 – 12 months depending on your market. Additionally, if you’re not familiar with the real estate process, or not very good with people or marketing, this might not be the best route to take.
Timeline: Expect to sell your house within 3 to 12 months depending on the market.
Selling to a Cash House Buyer:
If your property is in need of some work, you need to sell quickly, or just want an easy transaction selling to a “we buy houses in Palmetto” company is the way to go. Selling to a cash buyer is by far the easiest way to sell a property. Cash buyers are experienced, and can usually close quickly, without inspections and appraisals. Additionally, cash house buyers are not like retail buyers. Retail buyers are pickier and require inspections, appraisals (sometimes 2 appraisals) and more time. Important to note that cash house buyers rarely can pay full market value for your property.
Pros: Selling to a cash home buyer company in Palmetto, Fl can get you a faster close using cash. No waiting on banks. Fewer inspections and no appraisals. No back end fees, and sell “as-is” without putting one penny into fixing the place up.
Cons: Cash house buyers can rarely pay full retail value.
Timeline: Expect a 7 to 30-day close, or really whenever you’d like to close.
Each way of selling has its advantages and drawbacks. The important thing to do is to assess your situation and determine what route is best for you to take.
