Well another year is gone and real estate sales on Anna Maria Island for 2019 ended the year-to-date number of sales is down 6% below 2018 but still very healthy.  Sales for December 2019 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach were 34 (SF-24, Con-6, Dup-4 & Lot-0) up 89% above December 2018 at 18 (SF-12, Con-6, Dup-0 & Lot-0) ending the year up significantly for the last two months of the year.  Sales for 2019 were 375 (SF-237, Con-107, Dup-24 & Lot-7) down only 6% below 2018 at 397 (SF-234, Con-131, Dup-23 & lot-9).   The inventory continues to remain low but popped up to 312 after being below 300 for nineteen of the last twenty-four months.  Inventory is currently at 312 (SF-179, Con-96, Dup-19 & Lot-18).  Inventory for the previous twenty-four months were 289, 279, 282, 292, 296, 293, 305, 334, 338, 319, 291, 257, 249, 231, 214, 223, 240, 254, 267, 297, 297, 310, 290, 298, and still historically low and still healthy for this market.  Average sales for the last 16 years which includes 2004 and 2005 (the peak sales years) were 342.  As I predicted in last month’s newsletter based on the trajectory of sale the last couple months we would end the year in the 375 range…….. Right on…..a healthy year.

There is something for everybody on Frank & Al’s Great Buy’s list this month.  Since last month’s newsletter two of the duplex properties went under contract, the duplex with a pool, steps to the beach at 200/202 66th St.  and  5616 Guava with an additional platted lot.  If you want the ULTIMATE new modern Tampa Bay Front home see 661 Key Royale.  It has it all, OMGoodness 4+ bedrooms and 5 Baths with 7000 sq feet of FLORIDA under “roof” living area, .  Next, for a 180 degree Bimini Bayfront view, ideal boater’s home then check out 543 67th St. HB . The city says this lot is big enough to split in half and build two homes or ready to be taken to the next level, the existing 2,909 sq. ft.  4bedroom/4bath Bimini Bayfront is the ultimate in boating paradise, deep water minutes to Tampa Bay or the intercostal; there is a ground level mother-in-law (MIL) suite.  For a great rental you can’t pass up 129 52nd St. HB.  West of Gulf Drive and a block from the beach and close to shopping with 4bedrooms/4 baths.  Call us to see the FANTASTIC rental income on this property.  If you want to be almost on the Gulf then look at 103_47TH_ST. HB  a remodeled beach cottage with new pool and spa, 3bedrooms/3.5baths, one house from the beach and peaks of the Gulf in a very quiet part of the island.  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, let us know what that is- today!
