(April 21, 2017) - According to the recent numbers compiled by Florida REALTORS® from My Florida Regional MLS, March 2017 proved to show strength in both Sarasota and Manatee County. The combined closed sales for condos and single family in the two-county area increased by 6.2 percent from March of 2016.
Sarasota condo sales increased by 13.5 percent from last year, while single family homes increased by 2.6 percent. Manatee single family home sales increased by 11.7 percent, while condos were down by 4.4 percent from 2016.
"It's common to see an increase in sales when we near the end of our season," explains Xena Vallone, 2017 President of the Realtor® Association of Sarasota and Manatee. "And the bump in pending sales in March will likely lead to more closed sales in April and May 2017."
Carol's Commentary: Season 2017 was very busy and I continue to see homes sell well. But just because season is over it does not mean that your home will not sell. Homes sell at every time of the year and families with children might prefer to move in the summer months. I also see a real need for homes in the $200(k) to $300(k) price range, especially with pools and in good condition.
