Sarasota, Florida, Real Estate, Report, Data, and Statistics

It’s clear after looking at 2012’s  first month of real estate data, for the Sarasota area of Florida, that we’re seeing a substantial increase in home buyer activity.

Pending (homes under contract) for MLS  home transactions, increased by 38% over December of 2011.  And, if you’re anxious to hear more great news, the median home sales price increased by 20% in January 2012 over December of 2011.

“Homes on the market”- inventory- has seen a significant decline of 22% in January 2012 over December 2011.  That is very encouraging news for sellers who may be thinking of selling their home in 2012.  If these inventory home numbers continue to decline the logical result:

Less competition/supply + more demand = increasing home values

Although distressed property sales are still a prominent factor in our market, short sale and foreclosure sales numbers declined slightly in January of 2012 over December of 2011.
