November 17, 2017

LAmbiance – Naples, FL – Our Welcome Back, Toys for Tots party held on November 12th was a HUGE success!  If you weren’t there you missed a nice evening.  Many thanks to L’Ambiance’s Social Committee for all their hard work in getting the party organized!

I went to the party intending to take lots of photos to post on our LAmbiance in Pelican Bay FaceBook page and on our blog but I got so busy talking I only managed to snap the following shots.

LAmbiance Painting Project

August 21, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Our painting project is underway. Here’s a shot of work being done on the 300 building.  It has been an incredibly hot summer.  The heat index the other day was 117 degrees.  Keep in mind our painters are working in this heat.

Eagle Property Management sent out an e-mail the other day with information about the painting project.  Click here to view these instructions —>2017 Paint instructions

It is important Residents get their units ready for their building to be painted.  Mats, plants, pots and furniture need to be moved so the painters can do their jobs. The letter mentions “items should never be left on the balcony, entry or lanai when unit owners are not in residence during the summer season. These items can become damaging projectiles during a tropical cyclone.”

Today the eclipse will happen.  Where will you be viewing it?  My husband, Don,  and I plan to be viewing it at the beach.  Hopefully I’ll be able to snap a photo to share with you.

I recently started a FaceBook page for LAmbiance.  When you sign into your FaceBook account, search LAmbiance in Pelican Bay and click on the JOIN tab.  I would like to see this site turn into a source of information for LAmbiance Residents from LAmbiance Residents.  Have a great workmen you’d like to recommend?  Visited a restaurant you enjoyed?  Have a doctor/dentist you’d like to recommend?  Want to share an event happening in the area?  You can post all this on our LAmbiance in Pelican Bay Facebook page.

What’s been happening in the real estate market in L’Ambiance lately?  We currently have only one listing on the market and one pending with contingency sale.  There have been 7 sales since the beginning of the year.  Since April, we have had only one closed sale.  There have been 88 closed low-rise sales in Pelican Bay since the beginning of the year with a median sales price of $547,500.00.

If you are thinking about selling your L’Ambiance unit, please call me before you decide to do any major remodeling.  I’d be happy to discuss current market conditions and give you selling tips. 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.

2016 LAmbiance Real Estate Statictics

February 11, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  Are you curious as to what happened to real estate prices in LAmbiance in 2016?  Let’s take a look at how 2016 compared to 2015.

First Floor Garden Homes

 Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2015  $506,000.00  5  158
 2016  $507,378.00  7  179

First floor garden homes stayed about even in terms of pricing.  Note that the cumulative days on the market did increase.  There were six, 2 bedroom units that sold in 2016 and only one 3 bedroom sale. 

 2016  Average Sales Price  # of Units   CDOM
 2 Bedroom  $478,608.00  6  179
 3 Bedroom  $680,000.00  1  94

SECOND FLOOR GARDEN HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2015  $577,257.00  7  131
 2016  $606,200.00  5  143

In 2016, there were two, 3 Bedroom second floor garden units sold with an average price of $659,500.00.  There were also three, 3 Bedroom + Den units sold with an average price of $570,666.00.

FIRST FLOOR COACH HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units   CDOM
 2015  $735,000.00  3  60
 2016  $805,000.00  3  82

 SECOND FLOOR COACH HOMES

 Average Sales Price  # of Units  CDOM
 2015  $847,500.00  2  111
 2016  N/A  N/A  N/A

I have to say that units that have been updated have sold for better prices than the units that have been left in their original state.  Units with water views are also selling for better prices than units without water views.

What I see taking place in the low-rise market in Pelican Bay is an increase in market time, more price reductions coming through and more listings that are failing to sell.  As of today, there are 69 low-rise units on the market in Pelican Bay.  Since January 1st, there have only been 14 Pending sales and 9 Closed Sales reported. We currently have enough low-rise inventory to last 9 months.  A “normal” market is 6 months worth of inventory. I’ll be updating the www.PelicanBayExpert.com site with statistics for low rises in Pelican Bay over the next week or so.

I also see the seasonal rental market in Pelican Bay as extremely competitive.  More owners are deciding to use their units thereby taking their units out of the rental market. Seasonal rental prices have increased.

I had hoped that after the U.S. election that our market would pick up to the speed it was at last season.  Sadly, I have not seen this happen.  The high end of the market seems to be exploding.  Take a look at the CONDO statistics for the Naples area market over 2 million.

There was an article published recently by the Florida Association of Realtors that discussed the nervousness of foreign buyers. Everyone living in Florida know how much foreign buyers contribute to the real estate market.

Hopefully world events will settle down and people will have more confidence in purchasing retirement or second homes. In the mean time, unless you absolutely, positively HAVE TO SELL, I would suggest that you wait to put your property on the market until we see more movement in the market. I would also suggest that before you decide to put your property on the market you consider making some updates to your unit.  If you are undecided on what to do, give me a call, I would be happy to discuss this with you.

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. ESPECIALLY FIRST FLOOR THREE BEDROOMS UNITS.   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.

How To Open LAmbiance Pool Umbrellas

September 3, 2013

 LAmbiance – Pelican Bay, Naples, FL – Are you curious on how the new umbrellas at the pool in LAmbiance open?  Here is an instructional video that might help you figure it out.  The video stars my darling husband, Don Wilber!

As we will be welcoming our Northern residents back soon, I thought it might be a good idea to show everyone how the new umbrellas operate. How did I do?

Not a week goes by that another Realtor or Buyer calls me and asks me if I know of any LAmbiance units coming on the market.  If you have thought about selling, please give me a call.

I have statistics that sent to me weekly that show the pages on our LAmbiance site that get clicked on most often. Want to take a guess at the top two search phrases? The answer is ……..new Listings in LAmbiance and LAmbiance Rentals.

Did you have a nice Labor Day weekend?  Don and I visited Costco this weekend and I was astounded that Costco had their Christmas displays up!  All I could think was, “Isn’t this Labor Day?” Does anyone else feel this way? It drives me crazy to hear Christmas music in stores before Halloween!

Should you be thinking of selling your home in L’Ambiance and want a candid assessment of what it would take to sell your home in today’s market, I would be happy to give you a free market evaluation. Feel free to call me at  239-594-2780 or e-mail me at Lynn@NaplesBuys.com
