The Sarasota Association of Realtors and Manatee Association of Realtors joined the Mid-Florida Regional MLS a few months ago. The Mid Florida MLS system encompasses 13 Realtor associations across the middle of the state of Florida. Agents who belong to the Mid Florida MLS can now search as far south as Port Charlotte, as far north as Ocala and east to Brevard county.
Belonging to the Mid-Florida MLS will provide more accurate sales statistics for Sarasota and Manatee counties. In the past a Realtor would list a property in both the Sarasota MLS as well as the Manatee MLS. This created duplicate listings. Realtors would frequently report inventory statistics for Sarasota and Manatee counties. They would add Manatee and Sarasota counties together for total inventory figures. These numbers were inaccurate due to the duplicate listings. Sales were also skewed a bit.
Visit my Sarasota MLS page to view virtually all properties for sale in Sarasota and Manatee counties. My website is updated daily with fresh information. The only properties I don't show are those Realtors who do not want to market their listings on other agents websites. In a market like this I don't see too many reasons why a listing agent would make that choice.
