The Current Market in Manatee & Sarasota
The current real estate market in Manatee and Sarasota County is very active. Properties are selling and they are selling fast. Homes that are priced competitively and advertised properly are being sold almost as fast as they are listed. Others are being sold before they are even listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
In this type of market, timing is a key element when buying a home. I have experienced firsthand with my clients the ups and downs of the home buying process. My clients have made competitive offers only to find out another offer was accepted or the property just went under contract. It is certainly a roller coaster. Yet, I have found that each client will find the right house to meet their specific needs.
Patience & Dedication to Find the Right Home to Purchase
I recently had a client who was extremely disappointed when their offer wasn’t accepted. They almost stopped looking. It took a little longer to find another property they liked. But with their patience and my dedication we found a home that was less money and better suited to their needs.
My advice to any home buyer is to be patient and hire a real estate agent who is willing to put in the effort and time necessary to find the home of your dreams. A good Agent is worth waiting for they will help you save money, time, headaches and steer you into a good investment if you allow them the time necessary.
