Anna Maria Island Market Conditions for 4th Quarter 2018


Anna Maria Island real estate continues to be robust with what seems to be a healthy amount of supply and demand.  Our proprietary inventory absorption metric has spiked in the fourth quarter of 2018 to 11 months of Anna Maria Island real estate for sale but would not characterize the spike as an indicator of problems ahead as we have reached 11 months of inventory for sale on the island several times in the past 5 years.  More specifically 1st and 4th quarter of 2016.  For the last 5 years our real estate for sale has averaged a little more than 8 months on hand.   How well inventory is turning is a great leading indicator for real estate.  It provides a relative measure when supply and demand is out of balance and provides an indicator to watch for movement into a buyer’s market.

For the last five years average transactions per month has ranged from 45 to 22 with the low occurring this quarter at 22.  We have dipped into the twenty’s for number of property transactions 6 out of the last 20 quarters so it is nothing new.  Inventory remains low at 257 so supply and demand continues to remain at what seems to be a healthy balance.  For the last five years our total real estate for sale on Anna Maria Island has ranged from about 350 to 250 properties.  The average for the last five years has been 283 properties for sale at least according to Mid Florida MLS figures.

Happy Holidays!  We hope everyone is staying warm during this cold season.  The island has been unseasonably warm up until December and we are starting to see a few cold snaps and dipping into the 40’s occasionally at night.  Brrr…

Please be sure to call Island Real Estate for your Anna Maria Island real estate needs.  All our sales professionals are full time and we don’t have any weekend warriors dabbling in real estate on the side.   We would love the opportunity to help!

Silhouettes at Sunset 8~8~08

Did you ever have one of those friends that you may only see every five years or so and you could pick up just where you left off in time. Carolyn Haber is just that friend and we  My dear friend Carolyn Haber

have known each other for close to 30 years. She was down from Hudson, Ohio to catch up and realign our souls once again. We were both in need of open ears, honesty and the knowledge we each had found in our two different worlds while time and life had separated us.  Although we look much like sisters, we are sisters of the heart. So it was with much pleasure that I was able to share some truly beautiful sunsets on Anna Maria Island with Carolyn.
Not only did she take home a sense of growth from what we shared but she can visualize how incredible our sunsets are first hand. When she was leaving she described her stay as cleansing, peaceful and very healing as she begins another year teaching underprivileged children.  The nature and beauty of Anna Maria Island will stay in her heart for a long time and I am sure she will not wait five years for the next visit. There were other guests we met at sunset that were visiting friends and family or just enjoying a family vacation before heading back to school.

Maybe it is time for you to visit,  relax and enjoy the sunset!
