Inventory Drops & Sales Prices Climb

August’s inventory of Manatee and Sarasota homes and condos for sale is about 40% lower than it was when the market reached equilibrium between buyers and sellers back in 2013. This reduced inventory has caused median sale prices to skyrocket in both counties, creating a strong seller’s market.
