Sarasota Housing Market Recap

Sarasota Housing Market Recap

2022 Sarasota Housing Market ReacapThe latest Sarasota housing market recap showed 639 properties sold for just over $453 Million during September for the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas.

Everyone is asking about the impact of Hurricane Ian on the Southwest Florida housing market. According to the founder of Florida Economic Advisors and faculty members of the University of South Florida, an already tight supply of affordable housing will likely grow tighter, and buyer demand may grow for nearby beach areas relatively unharmed after the storm such as Bradenton and Sarasota.

Like the rest of Southwest Florida, inventory rose significantly compared to the same time last year. However, it is important to note inventory was extremely low last year. Like the previous month, even though supply has increased, the greater Sarasota area ended the month with less than a 2 months’ supply of properties for sale. When September 2022 housing inventory is compared to August to of 2019 before the pandemic, it is down 43 percent. 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 is quite different than the suburbs of a major metropolitan area. If you have questions about a specific area or neighborhood, contact us for more information.

Sarasota Housing Market Recap – Condos and Townhomes

September 2022 Sarasota Housing Market Recap - Condos


September 2022 versus September 2021 Condo Highlights:

  • Condo sales decreased 29 percent going from 331 real estate transactions down to 235 sales.
  • Pending sales decreased 33 percent down from 315 last September to 211 this September.
  • Inventory increased 85.4 percent up to 586 condos for sale compared to last September when there were only 316 units for sale.
  • New listings decreased from 364 down to 244 which was a 33 percent decrease.
  • Median days to contract was 18 days which was up from 7 days last year.
  • Available inventory of condos ended August with a 1.6 months’ supply of properties available for sale which was a 166.7 percent increase.

Between closed sales and pending sales, inventory remains extremely low. Similar to last month, the number of new listings declined putting further pressure on an already limited supply of condos for sale and it didn’t change much from the prior month when there were 588 properties for sale. As a result, the median sales price continued its upward trend, ending the month with a 23.1 percent increase year-over-year.

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…
