Anna Maria Luxury Real Estate November 2016 Newsletter

    Sales on Anna Maria Island for 2016 looks to be on pace to end the year in the mid to high 300’s.  October 31, 2016 Y-T-D AMI sales were 303(SF-179, Con-89, Dup-20, & Lot-15) still down 14% from  October 31, 2015 Y-T-D at 350 (SF-206, Con-105, Dup-18 & Lot-21).

     Sales in October 2016 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach were 21 (SF-9, Con- 10, Dup-0 & Lot-2) down 22% from October 2015 at 27 (SF-13, Con-10, Dup-3 & Lot-1). The last 12 months sales (Nov 1, 2015 to Oct 31, 2016) were 360 (SF-203, Con-112, Dup-27, Lot-18) down 13% from the previous 12 months (Nov 1, 2014 to Oct 31, 2015) at 406 (SF-236, Con-128, Dup-19 & Lot-23). Of the last 12 months sales only 1.7% or 5 (SF-3, Con-1, Dup-1 & Lot-0) were distressed properties (bank owned or short sales) compared to 5% or 21 (SF-13, Con-7, Dup-1 & Lot-0) in the previous 12 months (Nov 1, 2014 to Oct 31, 2015). Although we’re running 14% behind last year in sales, we are still going to have a very good year. I still believe the low inventory is the primary reason we are running behind 2015 in sales. Inventory is currently at 301 (SF-164, Con-89, Dup-20 & Lot-28). Inventory for the previous five months were 290, 298, 314, 303, 308.
The inventory on Anna Maria Island hasn’t been below 300 since 2005.

     Two properties on Frank, Scott & Al’s Great Buy’s list which were under contract in last month’s
newsletter have closed. The property at 307 Clark in Holmes Beach closed at $675,000 and 308 2nd St N #202 closed at $229,000. The property at 3603 4th Ave, Holmes Beach, a 3BR/3bath single family, three houses to the beach listed at $999,900 is still a great rental and it does $75,000 in gross annual rental income. If you don’t mind being just off Anna Maria Island; 9931 Manatee Ave. in Bradenton listed at $524,900 is a 2,376 square foot, 3 bedroom 3 bath condo with boat dock and lift and a great Palma Sola Bay View . Call me for more information on these or other real
estate opportunities.

     To summarize the Anna Maria Island market for the first ten months of 2016, we continue to run behind 2015 but it looks like we will end the year at about 350 sales + or – which will be one of the top 5 years in sales in the last
ten. Pended properties continue to be strong and still above the average. Pended properties (properties under contract) are at 38 (SF-26, Con-12, Dup-0 & Lot-0). Distressed properties continue to be almost non-existent with two distressed properties for sale on the island, one single family property and one multi-family property.

     The distribution of the single family sales on Anna Maria Island over the last 12 months still hasn’t changed much with 18% <$500K, 32% 500K-750K, 16% between $750K and $1 million and 34% over $1 million.
