A quick look at the housing numbers

A typical housing inventory of homes for sale is 180 days and considered a balanced market between buyers and sellers. Sarasota has a 21 day supply of homes, and Manatee has an 18 day supply of homes. That is a significant advantage to home sellers and explains why we are experiencing a multiple offer situation with buyers. As an experienced Realtor, I can help you sort through numerous offers from home buyers.
