The Sarasota real-estate market saw a jump in sales in December.
There were 681 single-family homes and condos sold last month. That’s up from 534 in November — a 28% increase.
“Word of mouth indicates we are seeing more showings and more closings this season than we have in quite a while,” said Michael Bruno, president of the Sarasota Association of Realtors. “And this year, we don’t have the homebuyer tax credit to point to as a reason for the surge. Sarasota is just a great place to purchase a property.”
The median price for a single-family home also rose month-to-month, from $160,100 in November to $165,000 in December.
There was a $1,000 gain in the median sale price for condos, rising to $160,000.
