By September 20, 2016Blog

Bradenton, Florida (Grassroots Newswire) 9/20/2016 — Recent fluctuations in home prices have created a great opportunity for home buyers here in Bradenton according to recent market trends.

Bradenton market trends indicate an increase of $20,000 (11%) in median home sales over the past year. The average price per square foot for this same period rose to $130, up from $117. The Herald Tribune reports — “Six Bradenton thoroughfares are now designated as “urban corridors,” where the Manatee County Commission is willing to consider greater building densities to achieve what it says is much-needed redevelopment.” These things together make it an excellent time to sell or buy. If you purchased a home a couple of years ago, chances are it may be worth more than you think.

“A lot of people are taking advantage of these conditions and are being rewarded by finding excellent opportunities to step onto or move up the property ladder,” remarked Douglas Clark, Broker/Owner of EXIT Sunset Realty.  “What a great time to buy a home.”

Many homeowners have gone beyond thinking about moving, to spending some time with a real estate agent to find a home that best fits their current needs.  “We’re in a bit of a window right now,” Clark remarked.  “I’m pleased with the home ownership options I’m able to share with my clients.”
