The Sarasota metro area has seen more home sales than nearly anywhere in the nation on a per capita basis, according to a report from Porch.com.
That company used data from the U.S. Census Bureau and real estate brokerage Redfin to compare how quickly homes were selling across the United States from January to September.
From North Port to Bradenton, on average, there were 29.5 homes sales per 10,000 residents. In the last Census, the Sarasota metro had 833,716 people.
That’s an average of about 2,500 homes sold each month.
Of all mid-size metropolitan areas in the country, only three others had more home sales on a per capita basis.
Those areas were: Naples, at 39.1 home sales per 10,000 residents; Fort Myers, at 31.4 home sales per 10,000 residents and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, at 30.1 home sales per 10,000 residents.
