West Wind Condos

Gulf Front Condo Anna Maria Island perfect get-a-way spot.   Ahhhhhh the Gulf of Mexico.

         The Coronavirus continues to show lower sales on Anna Maria Island this year VS last year although Y-T-D sales for 2020 are only slightly down over 2019.  Sales in May 2020 were down over sales for May2019.  The continued low inventory (well under 300) continues to support the current pricing levels without downward pressure on any reductions.  We’ll continue to keep you informed if anything that significantly changes relative to the corona-virus.  Sales for May 2020 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach were 30 (SF-12, Con-12, Dup-4 & Lot-2) down 33% below May 2019 at 45 (SF-28, Con-11, Dup-3 & Lot-3).  Sales for May 31, 2020 Y-T-D were 157 (SF-80, Con-58, Dup-10, Lot-9) down only 3% below May 31, 2019 Y-T-D at 162 (SF-103, Con-45, Dup-9, Lot-5).  Sales for the last 12 months were 370 (SF-214, Con-120, Dup-25 & Lot-11) up 2% above the previous 12 months at 361 (SF-217, Con-112, Dup-24 & lot-8).   The inventory at 261 continues to be below 300 for twenty-one of the last twenty-nine months and nine of the last eleven months.  Inventory is currently at 261 (SF-153, Con-80, Dup-14 & Lot-14).  Inventory for the previous twenty-nine months were 253, 274, 308, 314, 312, 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 continues to be historically low and well below average for this market.

      Since last month’s newsletter three properties from Frank & Al’s Great Buy’s list have gone under contract, 1910 Bay Dr. N. BB,  5614 Guava, HB, and 5823 21st St E. Bradenton.  Still available is the 180 degree Bimini Bayfront view, the ideal boater’s home, 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 take the current home 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.  If you’re looking for a great rental then look at 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 Fhttps://youtu.be/1V92nLz8jOEANTASTIC rental income on this property which did $94,800 in gross annual rental income in 2019.  If you want to be directly on the Gulf then look at the recently withdrawn but still available condo at 5622 Gulf Dr.  a 3 bedroom/ 3bath 1993 sq. ft condo built in 2007 with all the amenities you would expect.  Rental department estimates this unit could gross about $125k.   If you want to see this or any unit just call Lynn or me.  We can put you on your own automatic search for properties with your specific criteria, let us know what that is- today!

       To summarize the Anna Maria Island Real Estate Market for the first five months of 2020, sales were 3% below the first four months of 2019.  Although we expected sales to slow down because of the corona virus they seem to be hanging in there.  The inventory continues to remain in the low range, as shown above, at 261 which means there continues to be no immediate downward pressure on prices.  Pended properties (properties under contract) look even stronger this month at 71 (SF-45, Con-15, Dup-6 & Lot-5) well above last month at 42 and the previous month at 39.  This bodes well for strong sales in the next couple months.  Distressed properties continue to be non-existent as they have been for the last couple years with none in the current inventory and only two in the last twenty-one months.  The distribution of the single family properties currently for sale on AMI hasn’t changed much over the last year or so with only 4% or (6) <$500K, 8% or (13) 500K-750K, 14% or (21) between $750K and $1 million, 45% or (68) between $1 million and $2 million and 29% or (29) over $2 million.  The distribution for Condos currently for sale on AMI is 59% or (46) <$500K, 31% or (24) $500K-$750K, 5% or (4) $750K – $1 million and 5% or (4) >$1 million.  You can see that again 88% of the single-family prices are over $750K and 74% are over $1 million while 59% of the condos were below $500K.  This distribution of single-family prices and condo prices continues to inch up year by year.  Of the current inventory of 153 single family homes the lowest priced property is still $389,000 (a Seaside Gardens 2br/2bath) and the highest is $7,995,000 a one acre gulf front complex built in the 1940’s but totally remodeled.  Of the current inventory of 80 condos the lowest priced is again this month a 1br/1bath TradeWinds condo at $214,900 and the highest $2,295,000 again the 3br/3.5bath direct gulf front Palm Gables unit.  The prices for single family homes continue to creep up while condos remain flat.  Of the single-family properties currently for sale on AMI, the average list price is $1,858,231 and the median list price is $1,570,000 and for condos the average list price is $532,885 and median list price is $479,500.  Condos have gone down while single families have gone up.

       Longboat Key current inventory has dropped down significantly to 295 (SF- 100, Con- 170, Dup- 2 & Lot- 23) at the low end of the last eleven months at 337, 388, 386, 378, 364, 354, 309, 309, 274, 289,359 and significantly lower than the previous seven months at  388, 386, 404, 442, 461, 455, 452. Of the current inventory of 100 single family homes the average list price is $2,152,952 and the median list price is $1,295,000.  For the 170 condos for sale the average and median list prices respectively are $765,256 & $599,000.

Have a great day and keep those calls and e-mails coming and please continue to stay safe!  We love hearing from you and look forward to seeing you on the island……Alan, Frank & Lynn
