To summarize the Anna Maria Island Real Estate Market to start 2020, sales have started strong and the inventory is at a healthy level….not too high but not too low to inhibit sales. Pended properties (properties under contract) stayed very healthy again at 68 (SF-33, Con-25, Dup-8 & Lot-2) above last month at 56 and a very healthy number which continues to bode well for a strong sales year in 2020.
