South Tampa Real Estate Market Report

The numbers for March give validation to our continued belief that we have reached the bottom and the market is getting better.  Realtors are getting more calls, showing properties,and writing offers. Builders are seeing business coming back, building custom homes and even thinking about building specs.

But temper your glee – the recovery is slow and the road promises to be bumpy.

The average sales price came in 25% above March of 2010 and 16% higher than February of 2011.  And for the first time that I can remember, the Average Price Per Square Foot actually moved upward.

Every indicator shows substantial progress in terms of transactions. The number of sales for February topped last year by 12% and is a whopping 70% above the anemic days of ’08 and ’09.

The “Year To Year Comparison”; the last twelve months show an increase in transactions of 18% over the year before and 33% above the ’08 – ’09 levels. It’s enough to make me giddy.

The information on sales prices is not as positive or clear-cut.
