River Strand Real Estate, 8611 River Preserve - Under Agreement!

Posted by Robert Casella on Wednesday, November 28th, 2012 at 5:30pm.

Who sells River Strand real estate? We do! This home had previously been listed with another brokerage for over 200 days--we have it under agreement in 2 weeks! In fact, homes for sale in River Strand are selling quickly, and prices are inching up with so few homes on the market. We are heading into what can only be described as "the real estate doldrums" for the month of December (hey now, its Christmas--relax and have some eggnog), but I fully expect that southwest Florida, and in particular Sarasota and Bradenton, will experience what can only be described as a mini real estate boom--and it all starts in January!

Unbelievably, there are only a handful of new homes left for sale in River Strand, and that means existing homes will even become more valuable. While we expected to sell our listing at 8611 River Preserve Drive in short order, we were even surprised that it sold so fast. On a related note, while Lennar is building a new section of River Strand real estate, rumor has it that the new homes will not be part of the golf and country club. With no new homes for sale in River Strand (that include the golf and country club membership), single family home prices will continue their ascent. So if you have been sitting on the home buying sidelines, you better hurry! If you are looking to sell, NOW is the only time!
