Market Recap: Two weeks I said that "A common thought is that no one sells property during the summer, and I am here to attest to how false that is for Gasparilla Island". The reason I want to repeat that is because Gasparilla Properties is proud to say that we have set a record for July island sales with more than $16 million in pending contracts (so far).
Well, nothing really.
At least in terms of new listings.
There have been just 3 new listings in all categories in the last 60 days, and one of those has already sold. Going back 90 days, 3 of the 11 properties listed have already sold. Just 157 listings are available on Gasparilla Island, which includes boat slips, condos, vacant land, commercial, and residential property - in ALL price points. This number of listed properties has steadily declined throughout the year. It's not rocket science to figure that when the inventory is going down, down, down that it shouldn't be long before sellers tighten their negotiations and drive the market up, up, up.

Call me with your "wish list" for an island property and I will send to you listings for review. I work with properties that are not publicly listed, so chances are good that I have a private listing that could be an option for you.
