Sarasota FL Real Estate Review

Sarasota FL Real Estate Review

Sarasota FL Real Estate ReviewThe latest Sarasota FL Real Estate Review showed 1,150 properties sold for just over $778 Million during June in the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas.

The luxury market was strong, as evidenced by the 141 properties which sold at $1 Million and above. The highest-priced sale was for a single-family home on Siesta Key overlooking the Gulf of Mexico for $12,600,000.

Overall, inventory ended the month at 3,012 properties for sale, which is up from 1,954 listings during the same time last year. Similar to the prior month, inventory increased slightly month-over-month. There was a net increase of 115 properties for sale from May to June.

Although inventory has increased significantly over the last year, we’re still well below our historical norms. In June 2019, the area had 4,514 homes for sale which is 33 percent more than what we have now. So even though we’ve moved in the right direction, we still have just over a 3 months supply of homes for sale leaving us in a solid Seller’s market.

As for demand? It remains strong for the luxury lifestyle Sarasota and other Southwest Florida cities have to offer. Sarasota was recently named the Best City to Retire by Travel + Leisure magazine. Additionally, Naples and Ft. Myers also made the list.

Further evidence Sarasota remains a top destination for people relocating is the latest study released by PODS Enterprises, a Clearwater-based portable moving and storage company, which ranked Sarasota the 2nd Top Destination for Movers.

So, between low supply and high demand, prices are expected to rise. Just not at the same pace as the past couple of years.

Sarasota FL Real Estate Review – Condos and Townhomes

June 2023 Sarasota FL Real Estate Review - Condos


June 2023 versus June 2022 Condo Highlights:

  • Condo sales increased 1.3 percent going from 376 real estate transactions up to 381 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 4.5 percent down from 309 last June to 295 this June.
  • Inventory increased 85.3 percent up to 1,069 condos for sale compared to last June when there were only 577 units for sale.
  • New listings fell from 491 down to 379 or a 22.8 percent decline.
  • Median days to contract was 35 days which was up from 7 days last year.
  • Available inventory of condos ended June with a 3.5 months’ supply of properties available for sale which was a 133.3 percent increase.

Similar to single-family homes, condo inventory increased significantly over last year. However, it actually fell for the second straight month down to 1,069 units for sale compared to 1,073 condos in May.

Similar to the last two months, we ended with just a 3.5 months’ supply of condos for sale. We’re still only halfway to a balanced market which is traditionally a 6-7 months’ supply of units for sale.

Additionally, days to contract increased to 35 days up from 27 days in May and up from 7 days during June of 2022. Finally, the percentage of cash sales was 60 percent of all condo sales which was down from 68 percent during the prior month. With low inventory, low days on market, and high buyer demand, the condo market remains a strong Seller’s market.

Bottom Line

It remains a Seller’s market for BOTH condos and single-family homes. You still have time to cash in on the high buyer demand. What is my home worth…

With low inventory of existing homes for sale, there’s been a notable increase in buyers turning toward new construction. From ultra-luxury waterfront condos at The Ritz-Carlton Residences at Sarasota Bay to a brand NEW world-class golf community Soleta, there are a wide array of options available.  Should I use a Realtor if I’m buying New Construction?
