Sarasota Florida Real Estate Review

Sarasota Florida Real Estate Review

2023 Sarasota Florida Real Estate ReviewThe latest Sarasota Florida Real Estate Review showed 899 properties sold for just over $578 Million during June in the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas.

The luxury market was strong, as evidenced by the 103 properties which sold at $1 Million and above. The highest-priced sale was for a single-family home in San Remo Estates overlooking the Gulf of Mexico for $6,950,000.

Overall, inventory ended the month at 2,956 properties for sale, up from 2,170 listings during the same time last year. Similar to the prior month, inventory increased slightly month-over-month. There was only a net increase of 56 properties for sale from June to July.

Although inventory has increased significantly over the last year, we’re still well below our historical norms. In June 2019, the area had 4,157 homes for sale which is 40 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.

The Sarasota area continues to be a top destination for both people and businesses relocating. According to a recent report by Checkr – an employee background-check firm – Bradenton was among the top 25 Boomtowns in the U.S. Boomtowns are U.S. cities and metro areas attracting the most people – new business as well as movers looking for better jobs – that other areas of the country.

Further evidence Sarasota remains a top destination for people relocating is the addition of more new direct flights to Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. Starting in November, Avelo Airlines will add direct flights to Wilmington, Delaware. Avelo also flies to New Haven, Connecticut, and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, from SRQ.

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 Florida Real Estate Review – Condos and Townhomes

July 2023 Sarasota Florida Real Estate Review


July 2023 versus July 2022 Condo Highlights:

  • Condo sales decreased .8 percent going from 289 real estate transactions down to 266 sales.
  • Pending sales increased 2.9 percent up from 280 last July to 288 this July.
  • Inventory increased 65 percent up to 1,033 condos for sale compared to last July when there were only 626 units for sale.
  • New listings fell from 377 down to 331 or a 12.2 percent decline.
  • Median days to contract was 36 days which was up from 10 days last year.
  • Available inventory of condos ended July with a 3.4 months’ supply of properties available for sale which was a 112.5 percent increase.

Similar to single-family homes, condo inventory increased significantly over last year. However, it actually fell for the third straight month down to 1,033 units for sale compared to 1,069 condos in June.

Similar to the last two months, we ended with just a 3.4 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 36 days up from 35 days in June and up from 10 days during July of 2022. Finally, the percentage of cash sales was 55.6 percent of all condo sales which was down from 60 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. In fact, Florida was ranked as the number one state for new home listings in the country.  Should I use a Realtor if I’m buying New Construction?
