Sales on Anna Maria Island for 2016 ended below 2015 but still a good year.  December 31, 2016 Y-T-D AMI sales were 361(SF-212, Con-109, Dup-24, & Lot-16) down 11% from December 31, 2015 Y-T-D at 407 (SF-230, Con-128, Dup-25 & Lot-24).

Sales in December 2016 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach were 28 (SF-15, Con-12, Dup-1 & Lot-0) down 18% below December 2015 at 34 (SF-16, Con-14, Dup-3 & Lot-1).  Of the 2016 sales only .6% or 2 (SF-2, Con-0, Dup-0 & Lot-0) were distressed properties (bank owned or short sales) compared to 5% or 22 (SF-12, Con-8, Dup-2 & Lot-0) for 2015.  Although we’re running 14% behind last year in sales, we are closing the gap on 2015 which was a very good year for sales.  The low inventory is the primary reason we ran behind 2015 in sales but it looks like inventory is starting to move up again.  Inventory is currently at 325 (SF-182, Con-98, Dup-23 & Lot-22).  Inventory for the previous five months were 290, 298, 314, 303, 308.  The inventory the last two months was below 300 but other than that it hasn’t been below 300 since 2005.
