Median Sale Prices and Inventory Continue to Rise

rasm_logo

The Realtor® Association of Sarasota and Manatee recently released the regional sales numbers for the month of July and while the number of residential sales substantially differ from the record numbers we saw in 2015, Sarasota and Manatee counties are starting to see a more normalizing trend as median sale prices and inventory continue to climb.

Over the past year, Manatee County increased in sales from 2015, with a 0.7 percent increase in single family homes and an 11.5 percent increase in condos, but by contrast, Sarasota County sales are more than 20 percent down for both single family homes and condos.  Additionally, in 2015 pending sales remained very strong through August, but this year, we saw significant slow-down in pending sales as early as May.  In July, records showed that pending sales are 18.5 percent lower than last year for Sarasota and Manatee counties.

However, median sale prices for single family homes in Sarasota County are up 10.5 percent from 2015 to $242,500, while Manatee County experienced an 11.7 percent jump from 2015 to $279,250. Year over year, condo median sales prices rose 7.9 percent from 2015 to $205,000 in Sarasota and 21.9 percent to $185,250 in Manatee.

Inventory is steadily rising as well with single family homes in Manatee and Sarasota each showing a 19.5 percent increase from July 2015, which equates to over 4 month’s supply of inventory.

“July marks the seventh month this year where pending sales are down. This is also the sixth month where listing inventory has been higher than the same period last year. It’s reasonable to expect that the prices will adjust to the slowing demand,” says Linda Formella, 2016 President of the Realtor® Association of Sarasota and Manatee.

Just Listed – Jasmine by the Bay at 420 North Casey Key

I am pleased to announce my newest listing on North Casey Key, a highly coveted neighborhood known for its privacy and unobstructed water views. Jasmine by the Bay, located at 420 N. Casey Key Road in Osprey, Florida is a home that is full of quality and craftsmanship and was designed with the ease of living in mind and features every imaginable function for the active family that loves to entertain.

The moment you walk through the front door, walls of glass immediately draw your eye to a stunning view of Little Sarasota Bay.  As you move further into the home on this first level, you notice the spaciousness and sophistication of the music room that leads to the gracious living room.  Once in the living room, the cypress ceilings and walls combined with the stone flooring and hearth give you the warm feel of a private cabin retreat, and this is where you can sit and relax and take in the bay and garden views up close.  Waiting for you just beyond the walls of glass is the heated salt-system pool and spa, the trex covered dock and a separate pool house with a full bath that could be used as an additional bedroom.

Tucked away on either side of the music and living rooms are three large guest ensuites, two of which could easily work as a second master suite.   Walk down the north hall and you will find a mirrored exercise room with a steam shower, a conditioned wine storage room big enough to accommodate approximately 350 bottles, and a caretaker’s suite with its own separate entrance.

Take the stairs or the elevator to the second level, where you will find an elegant sitting area and formal dining room.  Beyond that is the kitchen fit for the master chef in your life that opens up the expansive family room, making it a perfect combined space that is ideal for entertaining.  Just off the kitchen is a screened-in patio with an outdoor kitchen for a casual dining experience. The separate office has wonderful bay views as well.  At the end of the day, retire comfortably in the master suite complete with his and her separate baths.

The Higher End of Casey Key’s Luxury Market Continues to Make Significant Strides

DB eNewsletter Header

Luxury Market Update

It is hard to believe that we are already half way through 2015!  What a busy year it has been thus far and Casey Key’s real estate market is still on track to meet or exceed 2014’s sales figures.  Year to date, we have had 12 single family homes sales and 2 vacant land sales on the key, which is slightly higher than 2014 for the same time period.

However, this year, the higher end of the market continues to make significant strides.  During this same time period in 2014, Casey Key home sale prices ranged from $1.4 million to $2.94 million.  Sale prices for 2015 YTD range from $860,000 to just over $5.3 million, with 4 of the 12 sales being above $4 million and 1 more single family home pending sale with a list price above $5.5 million.  Even vacant land is seeing large numbers, with one gulf to bay parcel selling at full price, $3.7 million to a developer.
