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

Categories: Price Reductions in LAmbiance in Pelican Bay

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

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.

Tax reform may hit middle-class, second homebuyers hardest

Posted January 16, 2018 by pelicanbayexpert
Categories: 2017 Pelican Bay Real Estate Statistics

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

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  Every day I read information from my trade magazines.  This morning I ran across this article which gave me reason to pause.

Source: Tax reform may hit middle-class, second homebuyers hardest

According to this article by Reuters, the new tax changes may hurt resale values in the second home market. This article predicts that prices could decline by about 10% in some markets with the coastal areas being the most vulnerable according to Zillow.

While I still have a crystal ball on my desk, it is always cloudy.

Crystal Ball

2018 will be an interesting year for real estate in Pelican Bay.  As of today, we have 46 low-rise listings on the market.  Anyone remember the days we had 130 low-rise listings on the market?  In the last 12.5 months, we had 110 low-rise listing sell. The largest majority of those sales fell between 400K-599,999K.   We currently have enough low-rise inventory to last 5.2 months, which is below the “normal” market of 6 months.

Because of the low inventory, you would think that we’d be seeing sales prices increase.  When I checked the average sale price of low-rises in Pelican Bay in 2016 it came in at $589,451.00.  The average sale price of low-rises in Pelican Bay in 2017 came in at $573,286.00; a decrease in price from 2016!

It will be interesting to see how the season of 2018 plays out. As always, pricing will be the key to getting your home sold.  I have a feeling the days of being aggressive on pricing are waning. These new tax changes may play a negative part in the second home market.  I’ll be monitoring the prices and keeping you posted on what I see happening in the market.

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.

900 Lambiance CIR #201 recently came under contract!  It was listed at $699,000.00 and barely seemed to be on the market a couple of weeks before it went under contract.  I won’t know the sales price until the unit closes.
