Summit Fiber Optic Project Completion

December 3, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  It’s been a busy time here in L’Ambiance lately with the installation of the Summit Broadband ONT boxes in our coach homes.  This project finished last week. Now all of L’Ambiance has fiber optic cable into their units.  This gives all Residents 100 by 100 MPBS service that can go up to a gigabyte service at an Owner’s option. It also replaces the coax cable and telephone wire that was deteriorating under the units because they ran through conduit that was often filled with water. This caused distorted signals and signal loss.  The change to Summit fiber optics in our units should result in a decrease in service calls. A big thanks goes out to all Residents for helping us complete this project.

Our pool project finished the beginning of the fall.  Our pool and hot tub were resurfaced. Brown tile now replaces the green tile border we previously had on our pool and hot tub.

L’Ambiance is looking good, isn’t it?  More Residents are returning to their L’Ambiance units as evidenced by the activity in our neighborhood.  I hope everyone is enjoying their time in L’Ambiance.

The real estate market was slow over the summer.  I expected the market to perk up after the Presidental election but I haven’t seen that happen as of yet.  Each day I take a look at the MLS hot sheet for Pelican Bay and I see more and more price reductions coming through. I also have been seeing more expired listings pop up.  Our low rise inventory has risen also. We currently have an absorption rate of just over 8 months. I am beginning to think that we will see a slight downward shift to the market.

Are you thinking of selling your LAmbiance home?  Please give me a call.  I have a list of buyers who are looking for specific units in LAmbiance.  I’d be happy to discuss not only the pricing in LAmbiance but the pricing for low-rises in Pelican Bay and low-rises in Naples to see how your unit fits into the equation.

Rainbow Over LAmbiance

September 5, 2016

A gorgeous rainbow appeared over LAmbiance tonight. I raced out to snap a photo to share with you. Moments later a double rainbow started to faintly appear. What a wonderful way to end our Labor Day holiday.

LAmbiance Pool Work

August 19, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Work has started on resurfacing our LAmbiance pool and spa.  It seems strange to see our pool without water, doesn’t it?

Lambiance Pool Work 8-18-16

LAmbiance pool getting resurfaced.

The work should be completed by August 26th if our rainy season weather permits it.  In the meantime should you wish to use a pool, our neighbors at the Crescent are allowing us to walk over and use their pool.  You can walk over to the Crescent pedestrian gate across from Avalon to access the Crescent pool.

Lambiance has had 13 sales since the beginning of the year.  My listing at 300 Lambiance CIR #105 is currently pending and will be closing on August 23rd. We currently have 4 active listings.  The second floor coach home I have listed at 1800 Lambiance CIR 201. has been getting showings.   To view all prices, photos and information on all LAmbiance listings, click here on LAmbiance real estate information.

Since the beginning of the year, Pelican Bay has had 67 low-rise sales with an average price of $624,171.00.  It is interesting to note that 7 of these 67 low-rise sales had a sales price of over 900K.  The absorption rate for low-rises in Pelican Bay is currently at 5.96 months.  A 6-month absorption rate is considered an “average” market.

Based on the number of phone calls I receive from potential Tenants, (I don’t do rentals.) Buyers and other Realtors® LAmbiance is a subdivision people want to own or rent in Pelican Bay.

My husband Don and I try to get down to the beach as much as possible after work for a swim in the warm Gulf waters.  Here’s a photo I snapped the other night. If you look closely, you can see the moon rising in the upper left-hand corner.

LAmbiance Ficus Removal

April 5, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Are you in residence in LAmbiance?  You would have heard the buzzing of the electric saws as the removal of LAmbiance’s perimeter of ficus trees began today.  Upon hearing the saws, I was reminded of Mr. T’s infamous tree removals.  Unfortunately our ficus trees, as so many others, have been infected with white fly.  Right now our perimeter doesn’t look too good.

The ficus trees along our perimeter will be replaced by pitch apple shrubs.

Soon our community will look as great again!

More work began today as the Summit Broadband fiber optic installation project continues with the 100 building and sequentially through the rest of the garden homes.  The 700 & 800 buildings were completed in January. Summit is projecting that this project will be completed before May 1st. 

I am thankful it has been a busy season for me.  Pelican Bay has a lot more low rise inventory than last year.  As of today, there are 55 low rise units for sale in Pelican Bay. Last year we had roughly around 25 units for sale.  The demand for properties is not as strong as it was last year.  In my opinion we are now in a more “normal” market with 6 months of inventory available for low rises. I’ve also seen more price reductions come through this year than last year.  I don’t think Sellers can be as aggressive with their pricing this year.

LAmbiance currently has 6 active listings, 2 pending sales and 7 closed sales.  It’s interesting to note that of the 7 closed sales, only one has square footage of less than 1,900. Click here to view LAmbiance real estate info.

Busy Times in LAmbiance

November 28, 2015

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples FL – The last couple of weeks we’ve had a flurry of landscaping activity as LAmbiance prepares for the arrival of our seasonal Residents. 

If you were in town, you saw piles of mulch around the community that was being laid around our bushes.

Mulch awaits to be placed in LAmbiance

We also have new flowers that were being planted.

Every time I show a residence in LAmbiance,  Buyers always comment on how great our landscaping looks.  Kudos to our landscaping committee.Our decorating committee also deserves a round of applause for dressing LAmbiance for the holidays!

November 20th found LAmbiance ushering in the holidays at our annual Toys for Tots party.  Don and I couldn’t stay at the party too long this year as we had a dinner engagement with past clients.  I will say that the party was well attended and I met a few of our new neighbors.

Speaking of new neighbors, LAmbiance had 16 closed sales this year!  We currently have 5 active listings on the market and 3 pending sales.  To view LAmbiance real estate activity click HERE.  All of the new neighbors I spoke with all commented on our great location to shopping and the Community Center.

Thanksgiving found Don and I down at the South Beach for dinner. It was an absolutely beautiful evening enhanced by a fire works display in Ft. Myers.  We ran into a couple of LAmbiance neighbors who teased me that I should snap photos for our blog.  Unfortunately, the camera on my phone is good but not that good!  Here’s a couple of photos I snapped on my walks to the beach in November.

Reflections

October 3, 2015

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – This was not a night for Don and I to swim in the Gulf as the waves were just too much for me.  Don might have chanced it but decided to take a pass also.  As we were walking from the beach this evening there were trams full of people headed down to the beach for sunset.  We didn’t stay for sunset but I did snap this photo as I walked back.

When we were down at the beach we ran into some LAmbiance neighbors who had just returned to Naples.  They were happy to be back in LAmbiance. I am sure we will be seeing more neighbors return to LAmbiance over the next few weeks.

My listing at 300 LAmbiance CIR #205 came under contract on October 1st!  I look forward to a successful closing for my Seller.

The listing I have at 300 LAmbiance CIR #201 has recently been staged and has new carpeting.  This second floor end unit with 1,928 under air has 3 bedrooms plus a den and is priced at $549,900.00.  Should you know of someone looking for a large unit, please let me know as I’d be happy to show this unit to them.

The first floor coach home I have listed at 1600 LAmbiance CIR #102 is available at $674,900.00.  This unit has 2,025 under air with 3 bedrooms plus a den/family room and a two car garage.  If someone you know wants a larger first floor unit with a two car garage, this could be the home for them.

I look forward to seeing our neighbors return to LAmbiance.

If you are planning on selling your LAmbiance unit, please give me a call at 239-594-2780 or e-mail me at Lynn@NaplesBuys.com You might be surprised to see how much your unit has increased in value.

Summertime in LAmbiance

July 8, 2015

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples FL – Don and I turned to each other a few days ago and said, “How did it get to be the 4th of July so fast?” Do you feel the same way?

Summer has been flying by in LAmbiance. I recently complied the YTD figures for Pelican Bay by building type for 2013, 2014 and the first half of 2015.  You can view these statistics by clicking Pelican Bay Statistics.

LAmbiance currently has 5 active listings on the market.  As of today there are currently only 22 low rise listings in Pelican Bay.  To see LAmbiance’s active, pending and closed sales click on LAmbiance real estate activity.

July 1st found our new maintenance supervisor Tony Musollari starting at LAmbiance.  I have not had the pleasure of meeting Tony as of yet but I am sure our paths will cross soon.

I’ve had a very busy year so far.  The inventory in Pelican Bay remains very low.  It is difficult to find anything to show a Buyer.  I have a list of Buyers waiting for certain floor plans to come on the market in LAmbiance.  Would it surprise you to know that a number of the Buyers on my list are LAmbiance residents looking for a larger unit in LAmbiance?

Summer finds my husband Don and I trying to go to the beach after work for a swim.  Lately that’s been difficult as our summer storms seem to come in just around the time we are finally free to head to the beach!  I snapped this photo a couple of weeks ago.  We had just left the water because the skies looked threatening and the winds had changed.

Pelican Bay is a beautiful place to live. LAmbiance is a great spot to be in Pelican Bay.  It is no wonder that current owners want to stay within the community!
