The Sarasota Association of Realtors just released the sales statistics for the month of April which report that Sarasota County saw the second highest level of sales in its history in April 2014 – a total of 1,195 closed transactions recorded in the My Florida Regional MLS system. That figure was topped only by the 1,223 sales reported a decade ago, in April 2004, just preceding the real estate boom that saw rapid price escalation.
The other months close to that figure were in the spring and early summer months of 2004 and 2005, and in March, April and May of last year. In April 2014, 759 single family home sales closed, and 436 condo sales were completed. The totals were higher than March figures, (698 and 352, respectively) and last April’s figures (703 and 429, respectively).
