Market Graph for Dec. 2013

By Brian Tresidder
Reminiscent of September 2012, late summer tends to have lower real estate sales numbers compared to August highs, but September 2013 showed sales were up 22.5 percent compared to 2012. Compare August 2013 sales of 957 homes and September 2013 sales of 817 homes just in Sarasota County alone and you get a 14.6 percent difference. Most September sales were single family homes compared to condominiums. For example, 545 houses sold compared to 272 condominiums. (Information is based on the most current report since the October stats were not available at time of print.)
