market conditions: Have housing prices hit bottom in Manatee County? - 01/08/08 01:48 AM
An article in today's Herald Tribune seems to point towards that.  It appears our market has stabalized and is doing fairly well compared to many others in Florida, according to the article.
"Florida's best known economist says the Sarasota-Manatee residential property market bottomed out in September-October and has now stabilized in both price and volume.""Hank Fishkind predicts flat prices for both counties through 2010, as the region chews through excess inventories of new houses and condominiums."
"I'm not seeing any major price declines, and I think volume has stabilized, Fishkind said."

"The biggest positive price jump in 2007 occurred between September and October, where median sales prices increased by nearly $20,000."

I was reading the newspaper online this morning, and was happy to see that condo sales have increased 10% from this time last year in the Bradenton-Sarasota market.

The median price was down slightly, from $226,000 to $224,000."That's very good news for us, suggestive of a bottoming out in that segment of our market."
