I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and staying cool! It sure is hot here in FL but with smaller crowds, coastal breezes and afternoon storms to cool things off a bit, many are finding SWFL enjoyable to visit even in the warmer months. We are seeing a record # of summer visitors.
Inventory! It’s just keeps shrinking and there are quite simply not enough properties available for sale to keep up with the high demand across all price points and housing types making it a challenge for buyers to find the right fit for their tastes and requirements:
Overall, the Naples area market has 0.9 months of inventory, down from a 7.3 month supply of homes a year ago moving from 6,003 properties for sale to only 1,271!
The volume of new listings has actually increased 10% from last year over the 1st half of 2021 but still hasn’t been able to curb the shrinking supply.
The lack of supply has started to constrain the volume of sales as pending sales have decreased 14.5% from the surge of activity experienced last June.
Examples: Currently, there are only 3 properties on the market in Grey Oaks (out of 900) , 11 in Mediterra (out of 900+), 8 in Port Royal (out of 600+), 19 in Bonita Bay (out of 3300) and only 35 in Pelican Bay (out of 6000+ residences).
Across Naples & Bonita Springs, sales prices have increased on average 23% from $655k to $807k over the last 12 months.
In the luxury market West of US41, average single family sales prices increased 12% to $4.09M and condominium pricing remained relatively the even at $2.11M compared to one year ago.
A true community with over 6,500 residences in 95 associations.
A diverse range of homes covering everything from condos of all kinds to magnificent private homes in neighborhoods or gated communities.
The fabulous private beach club with tram service through Clam’s Pass for easy access, fitness classes, beachside dining at 2 restaurants, and 3 miles of North and South Beach paradise (the tram cars/system makes 900,000 trips annually for residents and visitors).
