Luxury Sales Up 17% & Low-end Slumps as Housing Market Improves


Closed Sales
In April 2012, closed sales year-to-date posted a decrease from the same period in 2011. This is probably due to the slow start of the 2012 season. Closed sales for the past 12 months are approximately the same as prior year and sales above $1,000,000 remained robust. Of the 261 closings in this category, eight were at or above $5,000,000.

Pended sales
The number of pended sales below $250,000 is down 15% from the first four months of 2011. This segment now represents 58% of sales pended year-to-date, which is down from 63% in 2012. The largest increase in the number of pended sales is in the $750,000 - $1,000,000 segment, which is up 17% over the January - April period 2011.

New Listings
The number of new listings taken in April 2012 is the lowest for the month since 2004. Available inventory in the Naples, Bonita Springs, and Estero markets on May 1, 2012 stands at 7,116 units (3,863 condominiums and 3,253 single family homes). This represents a 20% decrease from May 1, 2011.
