New Pool Furniture in LAmbiance

August 15, 2013

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay Naples FL – The pool at LAmbiance is sporting a new look! Last week our new pool chairs, tables and umbrellas arrived. Here’s a peek at the new furniture. What do you think?

L’Ambiance has also been busy trimming trees recently. While the trimmed trees might look a bit sparse, they DO grow back quickly!

This summer has been one of the busiest summers that I have seen in the 17 years I have lived in Naples!  As of today there are only 35 low-rise listings on the market in Pelican Bay. Remember the days we had 101 low-rise listings on the market? L’Ambiance currently has only 2 listings on the market.

Summer found sales happening in L’Ambiance. To view a list of L’Ambiance’s sales click here–> LAmbiance Sales.

I believe that we are in the process of seeing the market bounce back. For the last few years, you have seen me repeat that if you put your unit on the market it has must be at or below market price to sell.  I now think that we can be more aggressive with pricing due to the scarcity of product.  Do you recall my saying a “normal” real estate market is one where there is inventory enough to last six months?  The Naples Beach area currently has an inventory that could last 7.38 months.  Low Rises in Pelican Bay currently has an inventory that could last 3.86 months!  In the first half of 2012, Low Rises in Pelican Bay had an averages sales price of $413,372.00.  The first half of 2103 showed an increase to $467,355.00.

LAmbiance is a subdivision that is in demand.  A week doesn’t pass that I don’t have a Realtor asking me if I will be listing a unit in LAmbiance soon. I also have Buyers looking for specific floor plans in LAmbiance.  If you have thought about selling your unit, please give me a call.

On another note, rentals in Pelican Bay for the 2014 season have been extremely hard to find.  I am constantly getting calls for rentals.  If you want to rent your unit for 2014 season and are not listed with a broker, you can send me the information on your unit and I will post it on our LAmbiance rental page. I can’t list other broker’s listings unless I have written permission front the other broker to do so.

Labor Day is practically around the corner and our Northern residents will soon be returning to LAmbiance.   I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. I will look forward to seeing our returning residents soon.

Real Estate Statistics for LAmbiance in Pelican Bay

June 12, 2013

LAmbiance in Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – This past season just seemed to fly by for me.  Am I dreaming or are we already in June?  YIKES!

This season was a very busy on for LAmbiance!  Since the beginning of the year, we’ve had EIGHT CLOSED SALES! As of today, there are only five active listings and one pending sale.  To view the report, click here —> LAmbiance Real Estate Report.

It is interesting to note that out of the eight sales, only two of the sales were in the garden homes. Four of the sales were in first floor coach homes. The remaining two sales were in second floor coach homes.

I am guessing that we  have not seen as many garden homes come on the market as the during the “boom” years more garden residences sold than coach homes. These owners might be waiting for the market to come around more before trying to sell their residences.

Here are breakdowns of the recent sales:

Are you an owner, contemplating selling  your LAmbiance unit? I would urge you to call me to discuss listing your residence. Prices will be going up; however as an owner you will need to determine the cost of holding your unit vs the amount of potential appreciation you may gain.  Call me, I can help you decide whether you should sell now.

LAmbiance is a great place to live. I know other people think so too because barely a week goes by that a real estate agent doesn’t call me to ask me if I know about any units coming on the market! Don and I have enjoyed 17 years here in LAmbiance and we do not intend to move.

Our summer rains have returned bring us much-needed rain. Here’s a photo I snapped last night at the Sandpiper as the storm moved into the beach area.

Our summer storms are very powerful.  The rains that follow drench our area.  I mention this because as an owner, if you are not in residence,  it is a good idea to hire a home watch person to check your unit for water intrusion.  Mold grows very quickly here.  You really do not want to have ANY mold problems!

LAmbiance will be getting new pool loungers, chairs and tables soon.  I saw the new ones but unfortunately it was the one time I did not have my phone with me to snap a photo.  I think residents will be happy with the new look.

Our Board is discussing replacing our roofs in 2014.  The good news is that they are not anticipating a special assessment as there are roof reserve funds to cover the cost.
