Sarasota Real Estate Market conditions seen during the last half of 2020 continue into 2021 and are being driven by dramatic demand from buyers fleeing their home states, continued low mortgage rates, and an acute inventory shortage of existing homes.
Preliminary data on January 2021 Sarasota market sales are as impressive as the last half of 2020, including pending sales expected to be up more than 50% compared to last year, and with inventory still extremely tight. I am optimistic that the months ahead can be expected to see more record-setting activity.
The Sarasota Real Estate Market had considerable growth in sales, further contraction of inventory and strong pace of pending sales, portending a continuation of a remarkable market into 2021.
The Sarasota Real Estate Market experienced yet another remarkable month of growth in number of sales transactions, total dollar volume, percentage of all cash sales, and number of properties that went under contract.
In August, Sarasota’s Real Estate Market saw more closed sales, higher median prices, significant growth in total dollar volume of transactions, and many more properties going under contract than previous year.
Sarasota Real Estate year-to-date pace of sales is showing promise of erasing the damage done by the shelter-at-home orders of May and June.
