grey oaks: 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! Always go in with a Naples real estate negotiating boss if you deal with lower inventories. 
Here are the … (9 comments)

grey oaks: Naples, FL Luxury Golf Insight - 08/03/13 02:24 AM
It's funny how life introduces new experiences.  Lately, there's been a great deal of chatter about golf, which seems weird to me, considering so many people who enjoy golf in Naples typically get out of here during this time of year and head back home...wherever that may be. 
I compiled all that chatter into one big fat's time to learn how to play. 
I was introduced to David McQuade, the Director of Golf at Collier's Reserve, quite some time ago by a great friend of mine.  I'd heard he was a great instructor, and I knew he had a great personality, so … (2 comments)

grey oaks: More Foreclosures Coming To Naples? - 12/10/12 04:23 AM
The short answer to, "is there going to be more foreclosures in Naples"? Is yes.  It's normal for there to be some level of distressed properties in our market. In fact, there are currently 159 foreclosures on the market which represents 2.9% of the overall market.

But if you are primarily interested in Naples luxury real estate, I wouldn't get too excited.  There are only 2 properties listed over $1,000,000 that are being advertised as foreclosures. That represents .0003% of the total active Naples real estate inventory.  One is in Grey Oaks the other is located in Naples Boat Club. … (0 comments)

grey oaks: 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)

grey oaks: 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)

grey oaks: Naples Real Estate Enters Official Dog Days Of Summer! - 06/13/12 12:19 AM
Hello Naples Fans,
While most real estate markets around the country are gearing into high season, South Florida actually works almost completely opposite to the typical schedule...(almost like the way your toilet flushes backward when you're on the wrong side of the world :) I wondered if this day would even come this know...the day when the average list price from the week before is higher than the current average list price.  See the Trulia graph below:
While this is a natural trend every year, I am amazed at how late in the season this is occurring.  These are typical statistics we … (3 comments)

grey oaks: The Gift Of Naples Florida - 12/26/11 02:22 AM
I hope everybody finds themselves this morning with some shiny new Holiday memories! As I reflect on my own memories one that stands out is a phone call I received around 7:00 on Christmas Eve.  Clients who purchased a home in Grey Oaks in November were in town and on their way to the airport to pick up their two children to celebrate their first family Christmas in Naples. I could hear the excitement in her voice when she told me of their arrival and how they were going to spend their time in Naples this year.  She thanked me again … (2 comments)

Here's the latest Southwest Florida real estate information from my ever so smart COO, Dottie Babcock!   I love illustrations like the one above that shows the current Naples area real estate market.  If I were making a purchase right now I might hone in on Grey Oaks since there's some serious opportunity there.  I just closed a home in Grey Oaks and I must say, the buyer got a terrific deal!  Of course if Grey Oaks isn't your preference, we should be able to come up with some interesting talking points in almost any Naples negotiation...that's not something you get from … (0 comments)

grey oaks: 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)

grey oaks: 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)

grey oaks: Naples, Florida Doesn't Kiss and Tell! - 08/21/07 05:59 AM
Why would someone want to own a piece of Naples real estate?  It just occurred to me...who wouldn't want to own property here, especially if they were famous?  I did a few searches on the net and really couldn't find too much regarding the famous people who own real estate in Naples, Florida.  In fact, on there are only 4 "notable residents" listed.  Why?  Is it that our residents don't get caught up in the hype or that we don't have very many paparazzi running around town?  Is it that our Naples real estate agents respect the rights and privacy … (5 comments)
