The Naples real estate market is a testimony to patience, and a tale of waiting for five long years from 2008 to 2013 to get back to a regular selling market.Property inventory is now one-half the number it was in December of 2008. The number is pretty dramatic; we now have 4,600 units for sale compared to over 8,000 at this same time in 2008.
Supply and demand are affecting some areas, however I find our buyers to be savvy and conservative. Gone are the days when bigger was better! Buyers are consistently buying for the neighborhoods and quality.
More sellers are staying in Naples and making moves that match their family plans. Downsizing for the empty nesters and upsizing for the extended longer stays seems to be the trend.
We are back to the days of new construction and lotteries, with the Naples real estate market alive and healthy!
Buyer Representation Reminder: PLEASE DO NOT register at a new community without a realtor.
The benefits of having a “buyer’s agent” on your side is extremely valuable and the PRICE of the home is the SAME.
Take note: Since my last issue ALL the “hot picks” are ALL SOLD.
Grab a new hot pick before it’s gone!
