In signs of an improving market in the region, sales totals for single-family dwellings and condos in Sarasota and Manatee counties remained near record highs for 2016, and median sale prices also showed improvement.

Sarasota Interest Rates

This week mortgage rates rose again. For homeowners looking for a 30 year fixed rate they can expect a 3.39 rate. This is up from a week ago. It seems that rates seem to be staying right between 3.19 and 3.39 percent. This information is being quoted by the Zillow Mortgage Marketplace.
