2011 YTD LAmbiance Real Estate Statistics and More…..

February 7, 2012

As you can see in the photo below, it is a beautiful day in L’Ambiance’s neighborhood.

Hopefully you are here in L’Ambiance enjoying the wonderful weather in Naples.  If not, I hope your plans include a trip to L’Ambiance soon.

2012 has started off with a bang!  The last few weeks found me busier with sales than last January.  FYI – I have been inundated with phone calls and e-mails from people looking to rent this year.  If you rent your L’Ambiance unit and have been unable to find a tenant, something is wrong.  Take a moment to look at the comment on the LAmbiance Rentals page.  I do not handle rentals as I devote all my time to sales.  The telephone number for Downing Frye’s Rental Department is 239-261-2244.

What is causing this abundance of seasonal tenants?  I believe these people have chosen to rent instead of buying in the hopes that the market will continue to decline.

Speaking of the real estate market, let’s take a look at what happened in 2011 in the L’Ambiance market.

SECOND FLOOR COACH HOMES – No Sales in 2010 or 2011.

Just by looking at these charts, you can see that in 2011, first floor garden and coach homes showed a slight increase from prices in 2010.

What happened to low rises in Pelican Bay in 2011?

  2010 2011
Number of Solds 80 94
Average Sales Price $443,215.00 $434,934.00
Days on Market 163 205
List to Sale Differential 8.31% 7.38%
% of Unsold Units 57% 48%
Average Price Unsolds $504,100.00 $448,160.00

While these figures show a decrease in prices and a higher market time, the good news is that the percentage of unsolds has declined.

Pelican Bay currently has a low-rise condominium inventory that could last 13 months. The Naples Beach area has an inventory of condos that could last 15 months.  All of Naples has an inventory of condos that could last 12 months.  A “Normal” market is considered to have an inventory of 6 months.  It is important to note that 76% of ALL CONDO SALES IN NAPLES IN 2011 WERE UNDER $300,000.00.
