According to the recent numbers compiled by Florida REALTORS® from My Florida Regional MLS, March 2017 proved to show strength in both Sarasota and Manatee County. The combined closed sales for condos and single family homes in the two-county area increased by 6.2 percent from March of 2016. 

  The inventory of active listings continues to improve over levels last March, up 12 .2 percent in the two-county area. Inventory increased across both counties in March, with single family homes increasing by 13 percent in Sarasota , while condo inventory increased by 18 percent in Sarasota.  The month's supply of condos is at 6, indicating a buyer's market, while single family homes remain at a 5.1-month supply.
