Sales on Anna Maria Island for May 2019 continue to run well behind sales for May 2018. Sales in May 2019 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach were 45 (SF-28, Con-11, Dup-3 & Lot-3) down 15% again below May 2018 at 53 (SF-30, Con-19, Dup-1 & Lot-3).  Two months into the second quarter sales for May 31, 2019 Y-T-D was 163 (SF-104, Con-45, Dup-9 & Lot-5) down 18% below May 31, 2018 Y-T-D at 198 (SF-120, Con-64, Dup-8 & lot-6).  The inventory has dropped down this month and has been below 300 for thirteen of the last seventeen months.  As I mentioned last month the average inventory over most of the past 30 years has been 400-450 properties for sale at any one time.  Inventory is currently at 293 (SF-185, Con-74, Dup-21 & Lot-13).  Inventory for the previous eighteen months were 305, 334, 338, 319, 291, 257, 249, 231, 214, 223, 240, 254, 267, 297, 297, 310, 290, 298.  Although a little above 300 for the past four months it has again ticked down below 300 this month.

There is something for everybody on Frank & Al’s Great Buy’s list this month.  If you’re looking for a fixer upper or tear down property close to the beach and Bay, then 2901 Ave C is for you.  This ground level duplex is on two platted lots and ready for a new buyer to totally remodel or tear down and build a new home on each lot.  Listed at lot value.  If you’re looking for a 180 degree Bimini Bayfront view and an ideal boater’s home, then 543 67th St. HB  is the one for you.  This 2,909 sq. ft.  4bedroom/4bath Bimini Bayfront is the ultimate in boating paradise minutes to Tampa Bay or the intercostal.  Another great boater’s home is 517 Key Royale Dr.  It has 5bedrooms/5 baths with a great open water bayou view.  Call me for more information on these or other real estate opportunities.  We can put you on your own automatic search for properties with your specific criteria.          

To summarize the Anna Maria Island Real Estate Market for the first five months of 2019 continues to run slower than the previous 5 years.  Pended properties (properties under contract) continue to be good at 55 (SF-32, Con-17, Dup-5 & Lot-1) a little below last month but still good.   Distressed properties continue to be virtually non-existent with no distressed property for sale on the island and none in nine of the previous ten months.  The distribution of the single family properties currently for sale on AMI continues to skew upward with only 2%  or (4) <$500K, 19% or (36) 500K-750K, 20% or (39) between $750K and $1 million, 42% or (80) between $1 million and $2 million and 17% or (32) over $2 million.  The distribution for Condos currently for sale is 57% or (48) <$500K, 29% or (24) $500K-$750K, 7% or (6) $750K – $1 million and 9% or (6) >$1 million.  You can see that again 80% of the single-family prices are over $750K while 56% of the condos were below $500K.  Again, the lower prices on condos is due to the fact that most of the condos on the island were built in the 70’s and 80’s and are 2 bedroom/2 bath, 1100 sq. ft.  and there is not much you can do to improve them to increase the value other than new kitchens and bathrooms since they can’t be enlarged.  Of the current inventory of 185 single family homes the lowest priced property is $419,000 (seaside gardens) and the highest is $5,750,000 an old gulf front cottage on a one-acre lot (the cottage is about $50K of the value the rest is the lot).  Of the current inventory of 74 condos the lowest priced is $228,900 (Trade winds) and the highest $2,569,000 (Vista Grande).  Of the single-family properties currently for sale on AMI, the average list price is $1,450,666 and the median list price is $1,225,000 and for condos the average list price is $568,092 and median list price is $475,000.

Longboat Key current inventory is 386 (SF- 115, Con- 237, Dup- 3 & Lot- 31) significantly lower than the last five months at 404, 442, 461, 455, 452 which were up from the six previous months at 314, 276, 277, 307, 320 and 377.  Of the current inventory of 115 single family homes the average list price is $1,999,547 and the median list price is $1,362,500.  The lowest priced single-family home on Longboat Key is $298,500 and the highest is $15,900,000.   For the 237 condos for sale the average and median list prices respectively are $776,507 & $549,450 with the lowest $214,900 and highest $6,100,000.  The Longboat Key inventory took a significant drop this month the same as the AMI inventory.
