SARASOTA REAL ESTATE MARKET TREND
ON SOLID GROUND
Aside from predicting a solid performance in the real estate market overall, the takeaway quote from
a new report, “Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2018,” published by the Urban Land Institute and PricewaterhouseCoopers is, “We are in a long cycle, not in boom/bust. The key to the next few years is to expand horizons, market by market, property type by property type.”

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices new york properties on Madison Avenue, NYc - Bringing Buyers to Sarasota!
Bev Murray took time out this month to maximize on the marketing and referral networks offered by Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in Manhattan, helping to attract northern buyers to condos, homes and new developments in Sarasota.
“It was really interesting to meet with the New York agents to get an overview of their market and share information on the Sarasota area. We are seeing a greater influx of buyers and investors from the New York/New England markets and I find it invaluable to my business to create connections with agents looking to refer business to Florida’s Gulf Coast.”
