The Sarasota Real Estate Market 2017

Here is a glimpse of the Sarasota real estate market trends for May 2017. According the statistics gathered by the Manatee Board of Realtors, average home prices and the month’s supply of inventory are continuing to increase in both Manatee and Sarasota counties compared to April 2016.

From May of last year to May of this year, the average single family home price saw an increase of 14.7%.

The total inventory in Manatee and Sarasota counties showed an increase in active listings of 9.3%, yet inventory continues to be tight in the lower price ranges under $300,000. Single family homes under $300,000 are going under contract quicker than luxury real estate. For Sarasota County, single family home inventory increased 12.3% and condos by 12%. Manatee County saw less of an increase in active listings with 3.6% for single family homes and a 9.7% increase for condos.

The month’s supply of inventory for Manatee and Sarasota Counties is in the range of 4.4 to 5.5, indicating it is still a seller’s market, particularly in the lower price ranges  as indicated above. This statistic indicates the time it would take to sell all the current active listings currently on the market. When the inventory supply reaches 6.0, the market will balance out, and it will be neither a buyer or a seller’s market.
