Sold on Longboat Key, Florida
Congratulations to John Woodward of Sarasota Real Estate Group for his recent sale at Islands West on Longboat Key located at 2525 Gulf of Mexico Drive.
John’s advice was to contract before the fall so as to not get caught up in competition with other buyers that traditionally enter the market this time of year. The savvy buyer agreed and sprang into action before the snowbirds descended onto our area. That turned out to be a good move and netted the new owners the lowest priced unit sold in Islands West over the past six months. Smart, very smart.
Islands West is an affordable, gulf side, pet friendly condominium on Longboat Key. Situated mid-Key, residents can

Renaissance Luxury Penthouse
John Woodward just sold another luxury property in Sarasota. This time it is a Penthouse residence located at the Renaissance. Situated just north of Fruitville Road at 750 N. Tamiami Trail, the Renaissance is probably one of the most under-rated buildings in town. A newer building with all the modern amenities like a fitness center, Olympic size pool, a business center, a grand entertaining/part room, secure parking and guest suites along with the opportunity to have full bay views would cause any buyer to believe prices would be well

Sarasota Real Estate Market Update - 2014 Q1
The Sarasota Real Estate market continues to show strength in total units sold, average price per square foot and average sale price. Market time is tightening for non-bank involved sales and the list price to sales price ratio is improving. Annual levels are at almost record levels and the shorter term is looking quite healthy as well.
Unit Sales – Q1 2013 vs. 2014
Overall unit sales were flat as compared to Q1 of 2013 but are showing a shift away from short sales. The underlying make up of total unit sales show significant improvement in non-bank sales which are making up the decrease in short sales. What we started to pick up in the 2013 end of year report was the almost two-thirds drop in closed short sales. We view this as a signal that distressed properties are having less impact in the overall market. We believe that sellers may be less inclined to short sale their homes due to the expiration of the deficiency waivers allowed for underwater home owners.
