To provide update to the answers below, Yes there is movement in the $300,000 + market. Of course the homes that are being sold are being purchased by Buyers that are savvy and have done their homework. Most of these sales are in well established areas that until recently did not offer discount. Within these areas people are finding that there are very nice homes being offered at historically low prices. (Stop me if you have heard this) The difference is that these premium situations typically will gain traction first as heath of the overall market kicks in. Look at areas like Boca Royale, Cape Haze, and Palm Island. These all have seen a uptick in sales above $400,000. this a is a sign that we are at, or bouncing off of, the bottom of our market low. Now is definitely the time to learn more about any area that you have been looking to buy.

272 homes sold in the last six months in Englewood. Average number of homes sold per month over the last 6 months in Englewood: 45 homes
#sold (45 homes) X 12 (months) = 540
divide 540 by 52 weeks= 10 units per week
If 10 units sell each week divide that number into the number of active listings 10 divided by 540 = 54 weeks of inventory or a little more than a years worth of inventory in Englewood.

The average list price in Englewood for the last six months was $230,241 and the average sales price was $199,920. Average days on the market were 228. And the average size home that sold was 1620 sq ft under air.

Hello New Jersey,

Yes there are a few homes selling here in Englewood. There are lots of signs on lawns and so I would suggest you will find some spectacular deals if you are in the market just now. And if you are in the market, I would suggest that you contact a "national mortgage broker" (maybe Bank of America or that ilk), and bring a pre-approval letter with you when you come here to look at homes.

If you are a seller and wondering why your house is still for sale, join the club. Probably it has little to do with the efforts of your agent, and more to do with the smell of the economy. I would surmise that mortgage rates will stay low all year (2009) and the flood of inventory that we have on our hands will begin to dry up as property transfers due to foreclosures and short sales skim the cheapest homes out of the pool of homes for sale.

If you are a seller and thinking about listing your house, think 2003 prices. There is no hard and fast rule except that homes that are priced to attract buyers--attract buyers.

Englewood--like many towns in the US--has homes at all price levels. From $40,000 up to $4+ million. But what is selling are the homes at the lower levels, say up to $300,000. Above $300,000 homes are selling for about half what they were 2 years ago...AND, most of those are empty of people and furniture, and worse, are not getting any maintenance of landscape, pools and etc.

Good Luck,

Yes, homes in the Englewood area and Cape Haze Peninsula are selling.
To answer the second part of your question: currently in the Englewood area and Cape Haze Peninsula, there are 25 homes with sales pending that were listed for over $300,000. In addition to these pending sales, there have been 18 homes closed since September 1, 2008 which were over $300,000. Of the 18 homes sold, the list-to-sell ratio varied between 75% and 100% of the listed value. The average list-to-sell was 89% (with a median of 88%).

I am an agent in Englewood and I agree with the others, priced right the homes are selling. For the most part it is a laidback and unspoiled area. If i can help please contact me at napoleon50@earthlink.net

Most homes are selling if the price is right, through-out the Greater Sarasota and Manatee county areas. There are many good homes to choose from at prices you afford to buy more. FHA Loans have available for these homes and a good Buyer can be particular in his choice. Homes are selling and Buyers have an abundant choice. Be careful of foreclosures and/or Short Sales, if the utilities have been shut off. Select a Realtor and Lender you can trust and knows the inner workings of the FHA.

SMiller,

Based of information available there has been 285 homes recently sold in the Englewood area. Records show the average listing price for Englewood property is $425,000 while the median sale price for the period between July and September was $137,000.

The reason for the large difference in asking price to median price could be because of the large number of homes currently on the market located on Manasota Key, a high end location with homes priced significantly above the Million dollar level.

Please let us know if you require any additional information. We would be happy to assist you.
