The properties at 117 Willow Ave ($1,395,000), 120 Neptune ($1,995,000) and 3603 4th Ave. ($949,000) are all in fantastic locations and are great rentals. 103 81st St has gone under contract.  If you don’t mind being just off the island 9931 Manatee Ave. Bradenton a 2,376 square foot, 3 bedroom 3 bath condo with boat dock and lift 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 starting out 2017 is continuing with the high sales low inventory that we have been experiencing since 2010. Since then we have had a steady 5%-6% increase in prices which has been the history of property values on the island and is a nice steady sustainable increase in prices. Stay tuned for March’s newsletter which will be coming soon.

Keep those calls and e-mails coming! We love hearing from you……Alan, Frank & Scott
