Sarasota Home Prices Up 5%

November 12, 2009

I have always said that when there is a recession Sarasota is among the last to experience it and among the first to recover.  The National Association of Realtors indicated that homes prices have fallen in 8 of 10 cities in the US in the third quarter.  At $185,200, the median home price in the Sarasota-Bradenton area is up 5.3% from the second quarter of this year.  Total home sales in Sarasota-Bradenton for the third quarter of this year  topped 2,314 which was about the same as in Q2 but up 32 percent from last year.    The Today Show named Sarasota the number one place to buy and it looks like now is the time to buy.  Visit www.todayshowsarasota.com for more information.

Forest Creek Parrish

November 5, 2009

Forest Creek Parrish FL

One of our clients just went to contract on a new home in Forrest Creek. This Parrish neighborhood is really a great value. Forrest Creek is a Neil Community that was originally planned for homes in the $500,000. The developer shifted with the market and began building more modest homes in the low $100,000s. The great thing about the neighborhood is that the entrance gates, landscaping and amenities were all constructed with higher end homes in mind. The result is neighborhood with homes priced under $150,000 and large preserve areas, amenities and the feel of a much more expensive community.
