Sarasota Real Estate Recap

Sarasota Real Estate Recap

The latest reports for the Sarasota real estate recap showed 1,289 properties sold for just over $768 Million during April. Both single family home and condo sales year-over-year decreased 25 percent in Sarasota County which covers the North Port, Sarasota, and Bradenton areas.

Similar to the previous month, 57 percent of transactions were cash sales.  If you find yourself in a multiple bid situation, in most cases the seller will consider a cash offer a stronger offer than one with financing.

On another note, even though inventory remains historically low, 1,608 new properties hit the market during the month. Most importantly, there was a 23 percent increase in single family home inventory which is good news for buyers who now have more options. However, it’s important to note, the median days to contract for both single family homes and condos was 5 to 6 days. As new properties hit the market, they were snapped up quickly provided they were priced properly. As long as demand remains high and supply low, prices will continue to rise.

If you are planning to sell, the increased inventory may start to impact how high of a sales price you will be able to obtain depending on the community.
