naples florida: 1st Week of Pre-Season in Naples, Florida - 10/09/17 03:54 AM
Good Morning Naples Enthusiasts!
Everybody wants to know how the Naples Real Estate market is going to perform this season. The copy-cat canned response has formulated. Here's how it goes:
"Naples endured a category 3 storm head-on. Much of our structure remained sound with landscaping being the biggest victim. We will get that cleaned up and then people will marvel at how well Naples performed in the wake of what could've been impactful destruction."
I don't think that is as telling as real statistics so let's get started.
Here are the stats:
New Listings 230 Closed Sales 194 Terminated Listings 36 Expired 54 Back On … (11 comments)

naples florida: Port Royal Naples Florida Update - 08/25/14 11:29 PM
Hello Naples Friends! As many of you know, Port Royal Naples, Florida is kind of like the "Beverly Hills" of Southwest Florida.  Most people love it, few can or want to afford it but it is considered the best location in all of Naples. Let's get started with the basic market trend statistics:
42 Port Royal homes are on the market with an average list price of $10,937,476. 4 Port Royal homes are under contract with an average list price of $7,473,750. 47 Port Royal homes have sold during the past year with an average sales price of $6,982,477. That makes … (3 comments)

naples florida: Sellers- The Top Isn't Always The Best. - 10/07/13 03:37 AM
Hello Naples Friends,
There's been quite a shake-up when it comes to which Naples real estate agents are holding the listing lion's share of some of our favorite Naples neighborhoods and Naples lifestyle properties.
It's tough competition to obtain and maintain the lion's share of anything and top listing positions in Naples real estate are no stranger to volatility.
Chances are if you own a Naples luxury property, your business acumen is considerably higher than the typical homeowner's.  Most of you are business owners or have made your career doing lots of tasks similar to many of the aspects to which real estate is … (0 comments)

naples florida: 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)

naples florida: 12339 Collier's Reserve Drive Just Listed! - 06/26/13 01:11 PM
12339 Collier's Reserve Drive is a FABULOUS 4+den home featuring 4+ baths, a full 3 car garage with golf cart storage, 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest house with living and kitchenette on over 1/2 acre.  She sits at the back of Collier's Reserve where all you hear is nature...unlike many of the golf course homes found throughout Collier's absolutely tranquil here!
Fabulously remodeled and expanded between 2005 and 2006, you'll find features here you won't find in most other Naples golf homes.  As an example, one of my favorite features is the 9x8 bonus room located in the master bedroom that … (3 comments)

naples florida: Naples Smart Girl's Naples Real Estate M.O. - 04/15/12 08:03 AM
Hello Naples Friends,
I've noticed there seems to be a common thread with many of the Naples real estate customers I've worked with this season that begins with a bit of perhaps...bewilderment. 
The first phone call starts out with something like:
Hi, this is _______ we've been using your Naples real estate website and we're thinking about buying and wanted to call you first... Hi this is _______ we're in town and saw these properties on your site and wanted to see if you're available... Hi we're not sure if we want to purchase or not but we're considering doing something in Naples … (0 comments)

naples florida: Naples Real Estate VIP - 01/19/12 02:30 PM
Hello Naples Friends! Are you tired of getting vague or incomplete information on tremendous Naples real estate deals and other meaty information about the Naples Florida real estate market?  Quite frankly, I'm exhausted posting half baked information because I don't have permission to blog or post about listing information I know you really want to be alerted about.  Unfortunately, the way our Naples Area Board of Realtors works, I'm unable to do that without permission from the listing agent and ultimately the listing company.  Because I primarily find these terrific deals in the Naples luxury market, the odds of getting permission … (1 comments)

naples florida: 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)

naples florida: Naples Luxury Real Estate Update - 12/13/11 05:07 AM
Hello Naples Fans! I just attended a contract seminar presented by one of the best real estate attorneys in Naples.  He shared best practice points on how to protect buyers and sellers from some of the gruesome pitfalls he's seen so far this year.  Also in the audience were about 45 of the other top agents in town. This is an invite-only seminar which means this type of information is not readily available to just any agent and yet another reason why you want to list and buy with a Naples Realtor who:
is properly connected knows the contract knows how … (2 comments)

naples florida: Naples Real Estate Market Update 12/12/11 - 12/12/11 08:10 AM
There is some really good news for the Naples Florida market!  Here's the latest Naples area real estate update from our fabulous C.F.O., Dottie Babcock.  As you can see there are still terrific buying opportunities in Naples and there are also places where inventories have leveled and are even in an under-supply scenario. 

Inquiring minds are always asking me what's going on with the Naples real estate market. While I do believe we saw a bit of a successful pre-season, I along with all of my super intelligent Naples real estate colleagues agree that it is too soon to … (2 comments)

naples florida: Cocobay at Pelican Bay - 10/31/11 01:45 AM
Cocobay at Pelican Bay Naples Florida is STABLE! Here are the current Cocobay at Pelican Bay real estate statistics:
2 Cocobay homes are on the market. 1 Cocobay at Pelican Bay home is under contract. 1 Cocobay sale has occurred during the past 12 months. With only 33 homes in Cocobay at Pelican Bay, there hasn't been a year where there was ever a plethora of activity in this Pelican Bay community with 2010-2011 following sleepily along the same as past history.  You will only find a few sales during any given year with 2006 being the record-breaker at 4 sales.  … (0 comments)

naples florida: Naples Real Estate Update 7/9/11 - 07/09/11 05:14 AM
Many believe there isn't much that goes on in Naples real estate during the steamy summer months and while some years that's true depending on the economy or the weather sometimes that simply isn't the story.

As some of you know, we had a better than expected selling season in Naples, Florida. In fact, I had the best year of my career by May.  YAEE!  Naples real estate has had a reputation for changing quickly (in both directions I might add).  My two favorite factors to watch are supply and demand and buyer/seller behavior.  While I keep my eye on … (1 comments)

naples florida: 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)

naples florida: Happy Memorial Day In Naples! - 05/27/11 01:37 AM
Hello Naples Friends!

Memorial Day weekend is quickly coming upon us.  I hope everybody enjoys their time and here are a few points to consider if you plan to be involved in Naples real estate in some capacity. 

My Naples Florida web statistics tell me visits are up 24% compared to this time last year and page views are up 26%.  More of you are searching, visiting and actually purchasing this year compared to 2010.  The key to successful negotiations is to pitch points the other side will find compelling. I like to reach outside the typical talking … (2 comments)

naples florida: Naples Florida End Of Season Discounts Now! - 04/03/11 03:51 AM
There have been a whopping 866 price changes in Naples Florida since March 21, 2011, til today.  While some of those oddly enough are price increases, many are the end of season discounts.  Now is a great time to see what's still available and a better time to negotiate than any other time during our high selling season.  Why?  Because now is the time many Naples sellers think they may have lost most of their selling opportunities.  These discounts are an attempt to capture an offer before many Naples buyers make their departure from Southwest Florida which begins occurring around April … (5 comments)

naples florida: Naples Florida Real Estate Update 3-12-2011 - 03/12/11 02:39 PM
Good Day, Naples, Florida Fans!
While us Naples Realtors have come to grips with the concept this season is FAR different than the past several, I've actually compiled all the sales, pending sales, new listings, etc. to see what exactly the recent Naples area statistics are showing.  One might think this data would be readily accessible to any smart Naples Realtor but alas, our MLS is not set up comprehensively. Here is what my quest for Naples real estate knowledge has found.
Here's' the Southwest Florida facts:
Comparing January 2011 to January 2010:
New Listings = Down 5%
Pending Sales = Up 2%
Sold Properties = Up 6%
Terminated Listings = … (3 comments)

naples florida: Quick Naples Update - 03/04/11 01:06 PM
Hi Naples Florida Fans!
I cannot believe the number of Naples buyers I'm working with this year compared to the last several.  While I'd hoped this season would be better than last, I had forgotten how quickly the market could change.  If you have been waiting to purchase, now might be the time to do so.  Several others have already felt the same and many properties my current customers have had an interest in are already gone while others are currently feeling the pressure to make a move. 
I do believe the window has closed in many areas regarding ridiculous discounting off market … (0 comments)
