Sarasota Real Estate Was a Little Quieter in July! Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte Counties, all saw New Listings and Closed Sales drop for July. Inventory continues at historical low Inventory Levels. Consequentially, Sarasota County has a 3.4 Month Inventory Level, Manatee County has a 3.3 Month Inventory Level, and Charlotte County has a 3.3 Month Inventory. All Counties are lower in July compared to June.
Don’t worry, the Sarasota Real Estate Market remains strong and the Financial Institutions are not giving any money away! We have about 1,000 people per day moving to Florida. The Florida population is about 21,000,000 and in season grows to 103,000,000. Still a great time to Sell or Buy!
