aqualane shores: Naples Real Estate Inventory Update - 11/01/17 04:18 AM
Naples real estate inventories should be rising sky high right now but with a 13% drop in new listings compared to last year, some Naples neighborhoods could be gearing up for price increases this year.
Here's are the Naples neighborhoods where prices could continue to rise:
Pelican Bay -  5 months Royal Harbor - 6 months Park Shore - 8 months Tiburon - 8 months Vanderbilt Beach - 8 months Pelican Marsh - 8 months With an under-supply of inventory, it might be tough negotiating!

aqualane shores: Naples Real Estate Update 2/7/13 - 02/07/13 01:40 AM
Hello Naples Friends! 

I want to quickly catch you up to speed with what I've been seeing and experiencing regarding Naples real estate so far this season.  Here it is...

1.  The general consensus is the tables have clearly turned in most Naples markets regarding seller confidence. (Even if the evidence on paper does not fully prove full recovery)  Naples real estate negotiations are geared more in favor of the seller than the buyer at this time.  If you are a statistics person, you may find yourself a little disappointed regarding a seller's response in a negotiation as … (0 comments)

aqualane shores: Naples Real Estate Update 11.30.12 - 11/30/12 12:25 AM
Good Day Naples Friends,  Tis the season! Naples real estate buying traffic is strong, activity is high and lots of exciting new Naples real estate happenings are occurring...
In fact, I just wrote a magnificent Naples real estate post about how the Naples seller behavior is changing only to realize for the sake of some of my deals on the table, I better not post due to the fact that I would not be writing in the best interest of my current clients.  Many times when my posts slow it's because I'm very involved in deals I simply can't write about for the … (1 comments)

aqualane shores: Aqualane Shores Update - 08/20/12 03:12 PM
Aqualane Shores is a Naples real estate success story showing a vibrant sales history during the past year with 34 sales and pending contracts.  With only 9 months of inventory on the current Aqualane Shores market does that mean pricing is on the rise?

I currently analyzed the Aqualane Shores market for a customer who is considering selling his Aqualane Shore home and while I wasn't surprised of the recent sales activity in Aqualane Shores, I am pleased to see the market has more than stabilized. My Naples real estate market experience is vast.  I've seen the tables tilt towards … (3 comments)

aqualane shores: Naples Real Estate Now - 7/25/2012 - 07/25/12 07:04 AM
I was contacted yesterday by a correspondent who’s preparing to write a segment on the current Naples real estate market. When she calls I always try to give her accurate, cutting edge information only a few may have already realized.  Here’s what I told her:
If last year’s big Naples real estate story was dwindling inventories, this year’s big story will probably be about the turn towards a seller’s market, smaller list price to sales price ratios and higher pricing.
Naples Real Estate Buyers: Get Strategic!  Up until now, it’s been fairly easy to march into any Naples neighborhood and find some sort … (1 comments)

aqualane shores: Naples Sales New Format at! - 05/28/11 07:36 AM
Hello Naples Florida Fans!

As some of you have already learned, I've prematurely launched the new sold features on my Naples Florida real estate site.  I received a call from the Naples Area Board Of REALTORS this week explaining I was in violation of our MLS rules by displaying sold listings in the old format on my website.  You can imagine my surprise since I'd been displaying those listings in that format for about 4 years now.  Needless to say, I felt much like Taylor Swift when Kanye West stole her microphone on the night she won the best female … (2 comments)

aqualane shores: Aqualane Shores Naples Update - 12/03/10 01:02 AM
Currently, there are 44 properties in Aqualane Shores on the market.  Pricing ranges between just under $600,000 to nearly $650,000 for an Aqualane Manor condo. Aqualane Shores homes start at just under $1,300,000 and increase to nearly $6,000,000.
There are 4 pending properties in Aqualane right now.

20 sales have occurred on the open market so far this year leaving just over a 2 year supply of homes still on the market.  While some locations have leveled it's apparent that Aqualane Shores still has some selling off to do before she can be considered a stable market. 

Stability is also … (2 comments)

aqualane shores: Naples Real Estate Cyber Monday! - 11/29/10 12:39 AM
When most people think Cyber Monday, I doubt seriously anybody is wondering what kind of discount they can get on a Naples property by purchasing online fact, I'll bet that most people wouldn't even imagine clicking their way to purchasing a property in most places. Of course, the more tech-savvy the town is, the more house purchasing click-happy buyers are but when many people think, "Naples Florida", we're barely what many would consider tech advanced.  In fact, I once saw on Fox News that Naples was at town rated "least likely to tweet".  Being @NaplesSmartGirl on Twitter, I was naturally … (2 comments)

aqualane shores: Brett Arends, Do Your Wall Street Journal Readers A Favor! - 05/22/08 08:56 AM
As promised in my last post, Naples, Florida has recently had a visit by a Wall Street Journal reporter by the name of Brett Arends.  As expected, he has made Naples sound more like a devastation spot instead of the destination spot that Naples is which by any measure is no great surprise.
The unfortunate part of course is that by not reporting all of the facts, he's portraying a false impression of the state of the Naples market and the motivation of many Naples homeowners which in turn will greatly disappoint those planning on coming down here and capturing the … (9 comments)

aqualane shores: Must Dine When In Naples! - 08/11/07 03:27 PM
A friend of mine asked me the other day what my favorite restaurant in Naples was.  My response, was, "gosh, do I have to pick just one".  I eat out all the time, too much in fact and enjoy the variety of places to eat so I sectioned out what my favorite places were for food types.  If you're in town, you must try to stop.
*  Tropical Reef, located across the street from Pelican Bay is an excellent place for seafood.  I love their sesame encrusted tuna but everything I've eaten there has been out of this world.  The outside of the building … (0 comments)
