florida: Golden Gate Estates of Naples, FL & The Gulf American Land Corporation - 07/14/13 05:27 AM
Golden Gate is the buffer between what people come to Florida for today and what the pioneers came to Florida for over a century ago.  Centered between these times arose the 2nd land boom.  If you do nothing else, remember the names Julius "Jack" Rosen and his brother Leonard Rosen.  Naples has two diverse types of wildlife.  That of music, dining, dancing and that of swamp, alligator, panther, coyote and black bear.  Your choice is simple in Collier County, head West for the former and East for the latter.
In the late 1950's Gulf American Land Corporation bought 175 square miles … (4 comments)

florida: Find Your Happy Median in Naples, FL Before It's Too Late - 09/14/12 06:26 AM
How does the saying go?  Ask and ye shall receve.  Here the Sellers have been doing the asking and it shows.  There seems to be a nice tempo in place however it took a while to gain the traction.  It is a wonderful sight to behold and one that will need continued monitoring.  Expect to see a slight decline or simply a flat trajectory then renewed growth after the new year.  The shadow inventory remains lurking behind the scenes although anticipate a resurgence later in the 1st quarter and through most of the 2nd.  How deeply it may affect us here … (12 comments)

florida: Naples Florida Condominium Market Not Out of the Woods Just Yet.............But - 01/12/10 11:21 AM
Not only am I feeling the pain I can hear it also.  The Condominium market in not just Florida, but throughout the US is reeling.  Writhing may be an even better term.  Half or more of our available real estate is condominiums.  The prices are fairly flat-lining right now and there is good reason for that.  The secondary home market is flooded with the "baby-boomers" ready to retire here andthere's also a contingent of buyers in the wings who realize this buying opportunity probably will not occur again in their lifetime.  They're looking at retirement maybe 10 years out as of now and are saying to … (0 comments)

florida: Strategic Defaults & Shadow Inventory Notwithstanding Our Delta is Rising - 01/12/10 09:22 AM
Viewing the Naples, Florida real estate market from a year over year perspective is becoming less and less frightening each month.  What is easily seen here is a desire for Sellers to recapture more of their investment that is not quite yet readily available.  I have not included the total inventory of Collier County and am showing only activity in the single family home market.  We're still moving in the right direction, albeit just slightly less than the previous quarters result, nonetheless it's forward. 

Those of you familiar with our seasonality here will be able to take this "up price" trend … (0 comments)

florida: An International Event Here in Naples, FL - The Half Marathon - Coming Soon - 12/30/09 04:06 AM
This is an excellent event for all ages.  Just because the topography is flat never means it's an easy run.
There were more than 1,300 participants last year and we're ready for records to be broken!
If you think you're ready to take on this distance there's no better place to start than right here.

This is a true road race for runners.  Your course is closed to traffic while the race is on which also allows your cheering section to be up close and personal when you whoosh by.  Run through historic downtown, third street south and also enjoy views of the World famous … (7 comments)

florida: Are You Beginning to Like What You're Seeing in Your Marketplace Yet? We're seeing gains in small increments here in Naples, Florida. - 11/19/09 06:15 AM
It is my belief that all Real Estate markets are seasonal to some degree.  When I look at the statistics here it gives a fairly good indication of a positive movement which normally would not be demonstrated at this level at this time of year.  In no way am I complaining about this and the realization is that we are far from a "complete" recovery.  This data simply confirms that as we progress toward our normally more active season our footing appears to be on much firmer ground.  I would be curious if you view your markets as R - rising, D … (6 comments)

florida: Gleaning Some Positivity from Our 2nd Home Market Here - Naples, Florida - 10/08/09 05:15 AM
Most Real Estate experts would agree that a 3.5 to 5 month supply of inventory would indicate a Seller's market.  With the upcoming season we're gearing up to continue this favorable trend.  Note that prices are continuing to fall in several of our market areas.
