  Anna Maria Island Real Estate Sales continue to keep pace with 2021 but also continue to slow down because of low inventory.  Sales for the month of February 2022 were 30% over February 2021 at 35.  The Inventory has not significantly changed from last month and is currently at 79.  Sales for Feb 2022 for Anna Maria City, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach were 44 (SF-23, Con-16, Dup-3 & Lot-2) compared to Feb 2021 at 35 (SF-22, Con-12, Dup-0 & Lot-1).  The inventory continues to be the lowest it’s been in 30 years and continues to be well below 300 for 36 of the last 44 months and 23 of the last 26 months.  Inventory is currently at only 79 (SF-53, Con-20, Dup-3 & Lot-3).  Inventory for the previous 44 months were 88, 82, 72, 72, 72, 76, 100,135, 145, 155, 162, 175, 196, 230, 261, 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.  I continue to think we’re close to the point where we are going to see the sales start to slow down, and the inventory starts to build gradually.  Looking at Manatee County the average sale price of single-family homes in Manatee County for January 2022 was up again 3.5% to $378,000 above January 2021 at $365,000 and the current inventory is down 70.4% at 155 from 524 in January 2021As I noted above, the average sale price of a single-family home in Manatee County is $378,000 and the median sales price is 302,965 and the Pending sales are at 328 vs 373 last year. Again.…. I CAN NOT say this strongly enough; for those of you thinking of selling within the next year or two now would be the time to put your property on the market before the market slows down.  As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter, I took my own advice and put one of my properties, a duplex, up for sale, it closed in January for $1,200,000.  As far as you buyers…buying sooner is better than later unless you aren’t going to buy for more than two years.  Call (941) 232-2216 or email me at alan@alangalletto.com  for an opinion of the value of the property you may want to sell, or for starting a search to find a property to buy today.

        Since last month’s newsletter, there were 38 properties that went pended SF-23, Condo-13, multi-family- 2, and the lots- 0.  The single families were listed between $1,200,000 and $7,875,000; The condos between $400,000 and $1,695,000; The Multi-families between $1,899,000 and $5,390,000.  Of the 53 single-family properties currently for sale, there is only 1 single-family property under $1 million ($995,000) and only 4 between $1 Million and $2 Million the remaining range is between $2,250,000 and $12,875,000.   We have left out Frank & Al’s best buys again this month since there is so little inventory, and it changes so fast.  If you want to see any properties just call Lynn or me.  We can also put you on your own automatic search for properties with your specific criteria so you can get them as soon as they go up for sale because the inventory is turning over so quickly, let us know what that is today!

        To summarize the Anna Maria Island Real Estate Market sales for February 2022 were 30% higher than in February 2021.  The inventory continues to drop and continues to be among the lowest I’ve seen it in 30 years, at again only 79 (SF-53, Con-20, Dup-3, Lot-3) slightly down from last month but still lower than 8 of the last 11 months at 88, 82, 72, 72, 76, 100, 135, 145, 155, 162 & 175.  Pended properties (properties under contract) continue to remain about where they have been for the market at 55 (SF-33, Con-16, Dup-3 & Lot-3) dropping slightly from the previous twelve months at 63, 70, 85, 94, 95, 101, 87, 86, 90, 94, 112, 92.  Distressed properties continue to be non-existent as they have been for the last couple of years with again none in the current inventory and only two in the last thirty-six months. The distribution of the 53 single-family properties currently for sale on AMI continues to skew to the high end with 0% (0) <$750K, .1% or (1) between $750K and $1 million, .8% or (4) between $1 million and $2 million and 20% or (10) between 2-3 Million and 70% or (38) over $3 million.  The highest-priced single-family home currently is $12,875,000 a remodeled 1,880 sq. ft. 1950’s 4BR,3.5 bath  house on a .27 acre gulf front lot.  The lowest-priced is a half-duplex, 2 BR/2 bath, 866 sq. ft. in the 400 block of Holmes Beach.

         Longboat Key current inventory has dropped down again to 41 (SF- 19, Con- 19, Dup- 1 & Lot- 2)  the lowest it’s been in the last twenty-five months  62, 48, 63, 59, 75, 127, 129, 156, 172, 178, 199, 218, 275, 295, 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.
