Luxury Home Buyers are Back! January Home Sales Set the Stage for Solid 1st Quarter Naples, Fla.

February 21, 2020– Despite a tug on inventory that resulted in a 26 percent decrease to 5,761 properties in January 2020 compared to 7,773 properties in January 2019, overall closed sales in Collier County rallied in January, especially in the luxury market. A 22 percent increase in January’s overall closed sales has many broker analysts optimistic that continued strong sales activity can be expected through the first quarter.
Aside from the 26 percent decrease in January’s month-end inventory compared to January 2019, we actually gained 360 more listings in January than what was available to buyers in December. Collier County has a 6.6- month supply of homes, which is much higher than many other hot markets in Florida. A recent Realtor.com analysis showed that other areas in Florida also experienced double-digit decreases in active listings for January including Tamp/ ...

Home Showings Lead to Increased Sales



The Naples area housing market enjoyed another 7 percent increase in overall closed home sales for the third month in a row.

Strong showing activity during the summer resulted in 698 closed sales during September 2019. Only 28 percent of the available inventory experienced a price decrease in September.

August Home Sales Strong as Prices Hold Steady



Naples, Fla. (September 20, 2019) – Closed sales of homes in Collier County increased 7.4 percent in August, but overall inventory fell 17.8 percent to 4,917 properties compared to 5,980 in August 2018, according to the August 2019 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). This reduction in inventory – which included 616 homes that were either terminated, expired or withdrawn from the Southwest Florida MLS in August – resulted in a six-month supply of inventory for Collier County at the end of August. We know that traditionally, inventory will begin to creep up in September, October and November as many sellers try to get a jump on the competition that might list their properties closer to our winter season. But the pre-season months (September through November) can be a great time for buyers a ...

For most people, the prospect of going to view homes they like is thrilling. It’s tempting to think that that is the first step to buying a home, but it’s not.  

Assuming you have your down-payment, mortgage pre-approval and other financial issues handled, the first thing you need to do before viewing any home is to determine what you’re looking for.

What is your criteria?

How much are you willing or able to spend?
