Is It A Good Time To Buy or Sell in Sarasota?

by Roger Pettingell

People always ask whether or not it is a good time to sell or buy.   In our area, the answer to both questions is YES.
If you are a Seller, this is certainly the time of year to consider putting your home on the market.  The closer we get to the winter months (i.e. the colder it gets up north), the more Buyers there are here in town to consider buying your property.  While you won’t get as much for your home as you might have four years ago, we don’t expect a huge increase in the value of your home should you decide to wait until next season.
If you are a Buyer, you are entering the “perfect storm” time to buy!  Prices haven’t been this aggressive in eight years.  You have a good selection of homes to choose from, though not as good as six months ago, and I expect the inventory to continue to decrease.  Interest rates are ridiculously low, and there are plenty of lenders looking to make good loans.  While we can never know for certain, we certainly all agree that we are much closer to a bottom than the top.
