Sarasota Florida Housing Market

Sarasota Florida Housing Market Update

sarasota real estate marketThe latest Sarasota Florida housing market statistics showed 638 properties sold for just over $395 Million during November for the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas. The highest priced sale was for a single family home on Longboat Key for $10,000,000.

Once again, inventory rose significantly compared to the same time last year. However, it is important to keep in mind inventory was extremely low last year. Like previous months, even though supply has increased, the greater Sarasota area ended the month with just over a 2 months’ supply of properties for sale. Most notable was the minimal increase in inventory from October to November which was only 7 percent.

Overall, inventory ended the month at 2,410 properties for sale which is just over half of what we normally have at this time of year. From a historical perspective, inventory prior to the pandemic was 4,175 in November 2019 and 4,942 in November of 2018. Since a healthy market would be at least 6 months’ worth of homes for sale, Sellers are still in the driver’s seat.

Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is important to keep track of local market trends. What is happening in resort destinations such as Sarasota continues to be different than other areas of the country.

Although single-family home inventory rose significantly compared to last year, up more than 150 percent, it was only up 6 percent from October.

Similar to single family homes, there was a significant increase in inventory compared to last November. The increase in condos for sale between October and November went from 660 units up to 727 units which was a modest 10 percent increase.

Also noteworthy was the change in days on market which went down from 28 days during October back down to 13 days in November. Additionally, 66 percent of the transactions were cash deals. With low inventory, low days on market, and high buyer demand as evidenced by the number of cash transactions, we are still in a strong Seller’s market.

Bottom line, it remains a seller’s market for both condos and single-family homes. So now would be a great time to cash in on the high buyer demand. You might be surprised to learn how much your home is worth in today’s market. What is my home worth…
