Join Us on March 11 for Our Client Appreciation Party

You are invited to our Annual Client Appreciation Party on March 11 at 1 p.m. at Amalie Arena.

We are inviting all of the people that have blessed us with their business, bought or sold a home with us, or endorsed our business. You can get tickets to the event here and ask us any questions you might have about the event, such as how many people you can bring.

We have this party every year but this year, it will be a party like no other. We will have at least one Lightning player there to sign autographs and meet and greet the fans. There will also be thousands of dollars available in prizes and free food.

We pride ourselves on giving back to the community. Metropolitan Ministries is our preferred charity for this event. We ask you to please bring a few unused baby items and Metropolitan Ministries will be there to collect your donations.

This year’s party will be like no other.

We’ve always been involved with Metropolitan Ministries and we think they do a really great job. We appreciate all of your business and support, and we just want to pay it forward.

This is a free event, but it’s for past clients, partners, customers, and friends only. The event is not open to the public at this point, so please get your free tickets here.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, just give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help you, and we look forward to seeing you on March 11!

Andrew Duncan, #1 RE/MAX Agent in Florida discusses with his guests, Robert Johnson from his team and Richard Vasquez of Artisan Insurance, the 2017 year end real estate stats for home sales and values and what to expect in 2018 for Sarasota, Bradenton, and Manatee.  He discusses the drop in distressed sales and the overall improvement in median prices as well as overall sales.

In Sarasota, the average sales price is $414,000 compared to $327k last year. There is 4.1 months of inventory vs 4.3 last year. Single family home sales in Manatee county is up from 420 sales last year to 460 this year. More are being paid in cash. The average sales price in Manatee county is $362k compared to $338k last year and 4.2-4.3 months of inventory.

There were more sales of condo and townhouses in Sarasota compared to sales in 2016. 325 homes were sold in 2017 compared to 258 the previous year. The average sales price was $493k compared to $322k the year before.

Rarely do you see the average sales price of a single family home be lower than the average sales price of the condo. This is because there has been a lot of development in the Sarasota county which are mostly waterfront and high end. It is also that time of the year where the wealthy Northeners or snowbirds are in town.

In Manatee county, the average sales price of townhomes and condos is $222k. There were 186 closed sales compared to 160 in 2016 and 4.2-4.3 months of inventory.

In the Sarasota and Manatee counties, we see more new construction sales. More new developments have been built and more smart home technology emerging.
