Anna Maria – Holmes Beach MARKET UPDATE

Anna Maria Island is one of Florida’s best-kept and most enjoyable secrets. This quiet 7-mile island is home to 3 cities – Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria – each with their own little personality. It’s the combination of Old-Florida living, the worlds best beaches and a calendar packed with family friendly events that makes this idyllic barrier island a dreamy place to call home.

Being local experts (and long time residents!) on Anna Maria/Holmes Beach gives us the opportunity to educate clients and friends about current market conditions and projections. This information is key to either positioning your home at a price that makes it sell quickly or knowing the value of properties currently listed if you are in the market to purchase a home. In this month’s review, you’ll find that the number of residences sold has increased 56% year over year, while the number of homes listed has only increased by 2% – it’s a great time to SELL!

Our responsibility is to keep you updated on the community, changing market conditions and emerging trends. This data is also compared on a month to month and year over year basis to paint a big picture of where the market is headed. Contact us today for a private consultation, or to be added to our list for monthly market updates in your desired community.
