marco island: Are You Ready For A Seller's Market? - 08/26/13 03:48 AM
I've been talking for a while about lack of inventory. Now, for the first time since December of 2004, inventory is below 1000 for both Marco Island(homes,condos & lots) and Naples(homes & condos). This is significant since the laws of supply and demand will most certainly be kicking in some time in the near future. The laws of economics state that as supply decreases and demand increases, the cumulative effect is an increase in price. We've already seen marginal increases in price quarter over quarter. However, there are still some factors that are limiting the exponential growth that we saw in … (0 comments)

marco island: Marco Island Real Estate Market Update for September 2011 - 10/25/11 07:42 AM
The Marco Island Real Estate market continues to show consistent improvement in September 2011. New Listings were 25% lower than last September and overall inventory was down 14.5%. Overall Closed transactions were up almost 33%. While the month to month average and median prices were positive, all signs of a stabilizing market.
Individually, the single family homes were on pace with last month but below last September's numbers. We believe that due to the strong interest in homes in the past that the inventory has been depleted of quality homes that are well priced. Good properties are leaving the market quickly. The silver lining is that average home sales price was up nearly … (0 comments)
