pelican bay: 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!

pelican bay: 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)

New condo construction in Naples, Florida is really heating up! If there was ever a real estate market in Naples, Florida developing behind demand, it's this one! Currently, there are 3 projects on the ground after a seven-year hiatus and response has been somewhat awesome!
What's spurring the success of these new developments? Value and lack of inventory!

pelican bay: Cap d'Antibes - Pelican Bay Naples Update - 08/25/14 11:04 PM
Hello Naples Friends!
I know so many of you have been waiting, waiting, waiting for the launch of Cap d'Antibes, the last high-rise to be constructed in Pelican Bay Naples Florida. Well, it's not happening today either. The launch of this much-anticipated building is still being kept under wraps. While rumors suggest the launch won't happen for several years out, the "guy in charge" says they may start taking reservations next season (although he said that in a tone of voice that suggests he's said that before and doesn't really think it's going to happen then either). So I pulled out my … (1 comments)

pelican bay: 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)

pelican bay: Naples Real Estate Update 3/26/13 - 03/26/13 12:57 PM
If I had to use just one word to describe the 2013 Naples Florida real estate season, I might use the word, "heartbreak" or "challenging".  2013 marks the season where sellers recognized they were once again in the driver's seat and buyers had a difficult if not impossible time finding Naples properties suitable for their objective. Here's a compilation of some of my experiences this season and some points you'll want to know about if you are still considering selling or making a Naples real estate purchase.
Lack Of Inventory ~ This is something I've been talking about for quite some … (2 comments)

pelican bay: Pelican Bay Market Update 11.28.12 - 12/28/12 11:52 AM
I performed an extensive analysis of Pelican Bay today to help a buyer better explain his price position on his offer. If you've been following my Naples real estate blog or had your ear to the ground here in Naples, you've heard two things repeatedly.
There's no inventory. We're expecting a very busy buying season. With sales steadily increasing, buyers are losing power in negotiations.  It's been an interesting pre-season. For example, there were 1,604 sales in Naples, Florida, from October to December 28th last year.  This year there were 1,923 (up 18%). That has put a new tone in the … (0 comments)

pelican bay: 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)

pelican bay: Naples Real Estate Update 11.8.2012 - 11/08/12 04:30 AM
Good Day My Naples Friends!  The election is over! The President is still the President and you can now get high legally in WA and CO...what a bizarre coincidence! The Naples real estate market shows signs of a fierce premature heat up but buyers might have a new edge in negotiations...
Between October 1st and November 6th:

There were 627 sales in the Naples area last year with 48 of those sales listed at $1,000,000+.  The highest-priced property sold was listed at $6,950,000. 

This year a total of 735 sales in the Naples area with 45 sales priced … (3 comments)

pelican bay: 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)

pelican bay: Foreclosures in Pelican Bay - 07/15/12 04:07 AM
Hello Naples Friends,

I just received an email from a gentleman who asked, "Are there any foreclosures in Pelican Bay".

The long and short answer to that question is:

There's 1.

As it stands right now there are only 251 active listings in Pelican Bay which equates to 10 months of inventory putting Pelican Bay in an under-supplied inventory status. There are currently 46 pending sales in Pelican Bay today which means despite the time of year, Pelican Bay is experiencing fabulous sales traffic.

Another portion of his question included,  "is anything under $250,000 in Pelican … (5 comments)
