Bradenton for Boaters
Bradenton is a historical landing place boasting protected natural deep water anchorages along the west coast of Florida. The Manatee River offers quick access to the Gulf of Mexico and from there the world by boat. As a home base its safety in the nature of the rivers mouth to the Bay of Tampa was utilized by the Calusa Kingdom and the Spanish conquistadors.
Today some of the luckiest boaters in the world call this their home base as they live the dream. The length of the river and number of safe anchorages with deep draws make this a natural choice for the real boater. Property along the waterways is enhanced by the natural beauty of the area and the development of the social resources in the the Bradenton and Sarasota area which continue to make this one of the most highly prized final destinations for the ultimate boater who has done his homework.
Bradenton boasts international boat-works and and there is a historical reason for that. The water way tradition lives on in our yacht clubs and marinas. The sailing squadron takes teaching seriously with prams racing the protected areas of the river. The Coast Guard is stationed nearby. Communications and safe boating classes abound.
A perceptible shift has happened to the Sarasota real estate market thus far in 2013; prices rising and inventories are low bringing in a “seller's market”. While still nothing at all like the fevered , cheap money buying spree that sent things into a tailspin, the market has definitely become favorable for sellers. Many Bradenton and Sarasota area realtors are reporting multiple offers and with a limited amount of inventory, competition for for buyers has been increasing. It seems to some unbelievable that we could shift from such a deep decline in housing to once again a n active and rising real estate market so quickly, but along with the Sarasota area's long list of amenities that offer a uniquely attractive location, several demographic changes are also working in our favor. Chief among those demographic forces working to heat up the market is the Baby Boomer generation coming to retirement age. In fact the numbers are staggering, nearly 10,000 baby boomers are moving into retirement every day. Of course with Sarasota's wonderful charms and the comparatively higher tax rate of many northern states, it's no wonder why so many are looking into Sarasota and Manatee counties for retirement. Adding to that influx of out of state home buyers are international buyers. Seeing their window of opportunity for low Florida real estate prices possibly starting close, has motivated many wealthy internationals to purchase homes and condos for both their residence or investments. With a highly skilled group of luxury real estate agents and marketing programs like the RE/MAX Collection available to further woo international home buyers, it's no small wonder that sellers are able to demand more for their homes. Also contributing to the increase in residential homes sales demand, are the high rental prices and ever increasing rental home demand. If you are a renter and thinking “gee, it is really hard to find a rental home I can afford!” you are not alone. According to Axiometrics Inc., The Sarasota-Bradenton-Venice area has the fourth highest rental demand of all metropolitan statistical areas in the country, with an average occupancy of nearly 97 percent. If it's that difficult to find and afford quality rental homes, many will decide to make the move to buy a new home. Area developers are not unaware of the new market conditions and moving to fill the demand. With new communities and homes planned and under construction... ...read full post
Across southwest Florida the real estate market continues to improve even during November, traditionally a slower month. With a declining a declining supply of homes for sale and fewer foreclosures destabilizing prices, home values in the Sarasota – Bradenton area continued to increase. While home sales were only 2 points from October, with 1,119 homes sold, sales were up full 25% from the previous year! Amazingly Southwest Florida is having the fourth highest year in nine decades. However the recession left such a deep depression in home prices – prices declined almost 60% at the deepest point – that normal market conditions may not completely return for while longer. In fact, if inventory continues to fall, economists say the lack of properties may have a slight negative affect for a time. "The numbers reflect a market that has been recovering the past 18 months," said Peter Crowley, broker and co-owner of Re/Max Alliance Group in Sarasota and Bradenton. "The consistency is there now to look back and see we made steady improvements in both sales and prices." A number of factors have contributed to the strong real estate activity. Many retirement age home buyers had put off making a real estate transaction until the time was “right”. With a consistent increase of activity and prices on the rise for many that time was now. Also helping to drive increased Florida home sales are the historically low interest rates on home mortgages. Sarasota seemed to be at the epicenter of the increases with SAR (Sarasota Association of Realtors) selling 556 properties and home sales up 8 percent from October and nearly 30% from 2011. Bradenton and Manatee county continued the marked improvement over last year with Bradenton area sales up fifty percent over 2011. The improvements were not limited to volume in Bradenton either, with the median home sale price in Manatee county at $174,900, the median price was up more than 25%. Even the hard-hit North Port / Port Charlotte area is experiencing price increases over 2011. The median home sale price in November 2012 was more than 23K higher than the same period in 2011. All in all, Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties should continue to look for a steady improvement in housing prices.... ...read full post
Remax Alliance Group jump starts Goodwill Industries Manasota Inc.'s effort to employ 50 war veterans this year. After giving so much for their country many, Bradenton and Sarasota area vets have returned home to a tough job market. Even with the local real estate markets showing continued month over month improvement, the job market is still weak. To help give back to the vets retuning from harms way RE/MAX alliance group has donated $10,000 in seed money to help kick off the non-profit jobs initiative. The donation caught the attention of JPMorgan Chase who has contributed another $25,000 to the effort. The donations will allow this important initiative to be funded throughout 2013. The job market has been especially tough on returning vets who have returned from tours overseas to find an unemployment rate in 2012 of 12.1%. It's been even tougher for younger vets. For veterans aged 18 to 24, the joblessness rate was even at nearly 30 percent. While the unemployment rate for vets has begun to decline slightly as of late, many vets also face other personal challenges after years of re-deployment. Goodwill recognized the difficulties facing returning vets and began the "American Veterans and Their Families Initiative" in 2012 to help unemployed vets get jobs. So far the organization has been able to give 33 jobs to Sarasota and Bradenton area vets and a dozen vets preparing for new careers in the private sector. Goodwill said the money is used to hire a life coach to assist in preparing for new, private sector jobs and navigating the complex paperwork to receive federal benefits. Peter Crowley, Re/Max Alliance's co-owner, also sits on Goodwill Manasota's board. He said the donation dovetails with an international company initiative, which trains returning veterans to become real estate agents. "They deserve the opportunity to find gainful employment as much as anybody else, and in some cases, maybe more so because we owe them something for their service," Crowley said.... ...read full post
