The Realtor® Association of Sarasota and Manatee counties just released the sales numbers for all of 2014 and what an incredible year of real estate for both counties!!
Manatee county missed beating the 2013 annual record for sales by only 28 transactions and Sarasota county finished out the year with a total of 11,550 transactions, breaking the all-time record of 11,482 sales, which was set back in 2004.
“Sarasota and Manatee counties have never seen this level of combined sales activity, which actually surpassed the 2004-2005 boom years of a decade ago,” stated Association president, Stafford Starcher. He went on to add that the steady rise of home prices doesn’t seem to be hampering sales and therefore, believes we can expect to see home sales continue to soar in 2015.
