MLS statistics, released by the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors for Marco Island only properties, continue to show a very active market.

Inventory of what is currently on the market ...

– 371 single family homes

– 651 condominiums

– 329 vacant home sites

Sales continue to gain momentum as shown by the 93 properties that went under contract in February – this is a lot. (2012 was a leap year so we did get an extra day to sell.)

There appears to be no let up in demand for well priced properties, and as the supply is shrinking we are starting to see multiple offers on some listings.

The market is clearly showing signs of recovery from a quantity of listings selling standpoint, however the prices continue to remain flat. For the trailing 12 months, the overall average sales price is down 2.3 percent.
