LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Today I focused on cleaning up our LAmbiance blog.  It has been a long time since I have checked the links on our site to get rid of ones that didn’t work anymore and make sure the ones that remained worked.  I also determined I had to get our SEARCH FOR A HOME page up and going.  You’ll note that on the right hand side of our blog there is now a link that reads SEARCH FOR A HOME right above a thumbnail photo of a sunset.  When you click on SEARCH FOR A HOME you go to a page with a link to help you in your search.

I would appreciate it if you could take a moment and try the search feature and give me some feedback.  Did you find it easy to use?  Were you able to find the information you wanted?  Would you suggest any changes to my instruction page?  Your comments are very welcome and I look forward to hearing from you.  Please feel free to call me at 239-594-2780 or e-mail me you suggestions to Lynn@NaplesBuys.com

You’ll note that I tried to visually clear up the right hand side bar to make it easier to find information. If there is something else you’d like to see on that side bar, please let me know. Eventually I want to get up some good links for hurricane information. Once again, your suggestions are welcome.

Thank you all for any comments and suggestions you want to share!

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – I ran across this article this morning and thought it was worth sharing with you.

Source: Tax reform may be boosting demand for Fla. real estate

After reading this article, I can see these tax changes will benefit the upper end market. The over a million dollar market in Naples has been very active. The number of closed sales for condos in Naples in the 12-month period ending March 2018 showed a 3% increase in the $500,000. – 1 million dollar price range while the market between 1 -2 million had a 55% increase in number of sales.  Here is the 1st quarter of 2018 report . You’ll need to page down to the condo report.

The LAmbiance beach get together was delightful. A big THANK YOU goes out to our Social Committee for organizing this event. It was great to relax and chat with everyone. I posted photos of this event on our LAmbiance Facebook page for our neighbors who couldn’t be there.

If you are one of our Residents headed back to your Northern residence, please have a safe trip. We shall look forward to seeing you again next season!

Here is a sunset memory to take home with you.

Price Reduction – 2000 LAmbiance CIR #102 – Naples, FL

Posted February 20, 2018 by pelicanbayexpert

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – There has been a second price reduction on 2000 L’Ambiance CIR #102 from $874,900.00 to $849,900.00.  The original listing price was $939,900.00.  As a listing agent, my job is to attempt to get the highest price I can for the Seller.  At the time I listed this first floor coach home, I knew there were no other coach homes listed AND there was very little inventory on the market.  We are now in line with recent sales.

This unit is one of the most well taken care of listings that I have ever had in my career.  I only wish all my listings had the same amount of meticulous care this one has.  Please take a moment to view this lovely listing and think about anyone you know who might enjoy living in L’Ambiance.

If you would like to view this unit please call me at 239-594-2780 to set up a showing appointment.

2017 YTD LAmbiance Real Estate Statistics

Posted February 11, 2018 by pelicanbayexpert
Categories: LAmbiance real estate statistics

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples FL – We are well into our way into season. Today I saw another car carrier dropping off cars in the Pelican Bay area.  This is one of the busiest seasons I have seen.  My phone has rung more than usual and the number of e-mails I normally receive is up.  This would indicate an active market.

Let’s compare what sold in L’Ambiance in 2017 to what sold in 2016.

FIRST FLOOR GARDEN HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2017  $549,800.00  3  190
 2016  $507,378.00  7  179
       

Interesting that we had less than half the sales in first floor garden homes in 2017 than we did in 2016.  Market time has also increased.

SECOND FLOOR GARDEN HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2017  $565,750.00  4  78
 2016  $606,200.00  5  143

We saw the prices go down on second floor gardens in 2017. I want to note that of the four sales in 2017; only ONE of the four was totally updated.  This updated unit wasn’t even on the market a week when it came under contract.

FIRST FLOOR COACH HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units   CDOM
 2017  $803,333.00  3  
 2016  $805,000.00  3  82

One of the first floor coach home sales in 2017 was a private sale.  I’m unable to calculate the cumulative days on the market because I am NOT able to obtain this information from tax records.

SECOND FLOOR COACH HOMES

   Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2017  $860,000.00  2  163
 2016  N/A  N/A  N/A

When I look at the 2017 YTD figures for condos in the Naples Beach area, I see the median sales price for 2016 was $675,000.00. 2017 saw a 4% decrease to $645,000.00.  Inventory decrease by 5%.  At the end of 2017, the Naples Beach area had an inventory of 8.9 months.  Days of the market had also decreased.

Low-Rise condos in Pelican Bay now have an inventory that could last 6.82 months. That’s just a tad over the normal mark of 6 months for an average market. Low-Rise condos in 2017 in Pelican Bay had an average sales price of $573,280.00 and a median sales price of $540,000.00.  These numbers are down from the 2016 numbers of an average sales price of $589,451.00 and a median sales price of $560,000.00.

Since January 1, 2018 – February 7, 2018 there have been TWO low-rise closed sales in Pelican Bay.  In the same time period Pelican Bay has had 10 low-rises pending sales.

In 2017 there were 126 low-rise listing put on the market. 41 of those listings failed to sell either because the listing expired, terminated or withdrawn.  Roughly 32% of all listings taken did not sell.

What will 2018 hold in store for real estate prices?  Just based on the above numbers, I’d say Pelican Bay low rises are in a normal market. I don’t think we will see huge increases in prices this year and I also don’t think we’ll see huge price drops.

EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT HANDLE RENTALS, I can tell from the “chatter” I hear that there is very little rental inventory.  Owners who bought their units to rent until they could retire are now retiring and occupying units that used. Potential tenants are finding it more difficult to find places that will rent for 30 days. Prices on rental units in Pelican Bay seem to be increasing. If you are looking for a rental, I’d suggest you check out the rental page on our L’Ambiance site at:  https://lambiance.wordpress.com/about-lambiance/lambiance-in-pelican-bay-rentals/   The company I work at, Downing Frye Realty, Inc. has a website where you can search for rentals at: http://downingfrye.com/RealEstate/index/PropertyType/Residential-Rental/  on the right hand side of the screen put in the 1) Neighborhood you want 2) The TYPE you would want is Residential Rental.  This site will give you a good idea of rental prices.
