LAmbiance Dresses for the Holidays

December 2, 2009
LAmbiance is getting into the holiday spirit and dressing for the occasion!  Thanks go out to Jerry and Molly Moffat for contributing their time to decorate the markers and gates of LAmbaince.  Tree lighting crews started decorating our palms with lights in mid October!  The demand for palm lights is HUGE in Naples and these crews need to start early in order for each subdivision to be able to turn on their holiday lights in December.

LAmbiance is dressing up for the Holidays!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I snapped the below photo of our main gates just at twilight.  The sky looks as if it were colored midnight blue, doesn’t it?

Lambiance Clubhouse Remodeling Update

June 16, 2009

While summer time usually brings a quite time to Naples, L’Ambiance is busy working away on our Clubhouse remodeling project!  Since you may not be in residence, I thought you might like a quick update on the progress of the project.

I ran out today and took some quick shots so you can see what is happening in L’Ambiance.  One of the first things I want to mention is that a new security key entry panel has been installed at our front gate.  If you are coming for a visit and do not have your residents clicker, please be aware that all residents’ gate codes have been changed.  Eagle Property Management has sent out a notice about this, however, I just wanted to remind you.  Nothing could be worse than arriving late at night and not being able to get through the gate.

Here are some photos of our work in progress.

You might be wondering what is happening with L’Ambiance real estate sales.  Unfortunately not much.  L’Ambiance is mirroring the Naples market in the $500,000.00 – $1,000,000.00 price ranges.  May 2009,  saw only 46 Pending Sale in the whole Naples condo market.  The 12-month period ending May/2008 to May/2009 saw a decrease in both the number of Pending and Closed Sales in the $500,000.00 – $1,000,000.00 price range.  The under $300,000.00 price range, however, is booming!

As of this date, L’Ambiance has  17 Active Listings, 2 Pending Sales and only 4 Closed Sales.  When you click on the Closed Sales link, you’ll only see 3 closed sales because one coach home unit sold by owner.  This unit’s sale information is not on the County web site as of yet.

The Gulf water temperature was 89 degrees yesterday!  The sunsets have been incredibly beautiful the last week.  Here is one for you to enjoy!

LAmbiance Election Time is Here!

March 5, 2009

Lambiance wants YOUR vote!

L’Ambiance’s annual meeting is coming up on March 18, 2009 at 7:00 PM at the Hammock Oak Center , 8960 Hammock Oak Drive.  If you are in town and plan to attend, please bring your ballots and your proxy with you.

By now you should have received the ballots to vote for your L’Ambiance Board of  Directors and a proxy to vote for the rolling over of year end 2009 surplus funds, if any, to 2010.  Each unit owner in L’Ambiance is allowed a vote and it is important that all our residents send in their ballots and their proxies.

In order for your vote for Directors to count, you must carefully follow the directions in the packet that was sent to you from Eagle Property Management.  If you do not fill out the Ballot Return Envelope correctly, your vote will not count.  These votes must be mailed back and received by Eagle before our meeting on March 18th.

If you do not think that your ballot can be mailed back in enough time for the vote on March 18th, please call Eagle Property Management  at 239-596-5567 to find out how to cast your vote for your Directors.  Please do not put off voting.  It is important that all unit owners’ votes are counted.

An article appeared in the Naples Daily News by Rob Samouce last week entitled Appreciate your board of directors, say thank you.    This article discussed the jobs that condo Board of Directors are faced with accomplishing for their condo complexes.  Every person who has served as a L’Ambiance Board of Director has done so as a volunteer.  All our past and present Directors do deserve a HUGE thank you from all of us for all the time and effort they have put into making L’Ambiance the lovely community that it is today.  While all of us might not agree with all the Board’s decisions, we have to agree that our Directors have volunteered their time and energy to problem solve for our community.  I would personally like to thank everyone in L’Ambiance who has served on the Board of Directors and those who have served on our L’Ambiance committees.  Without these people, L’Ambiance would have issues that we do not have!  My thanks to all of you!

MARKET PREDICTIONS FOR PELICAN BAY

If you are a buyer waiting for prices to come down, you may have missed the boat if you wanted to own a Single Family Home, a Detached Villa or a High Rise in Pelican Bay this year.  The number of sales for the amount of inventory in these categories has lowered the expected projected time these categories will be on the market.  While I am sure there still are some good buys today, I do not except buyers will find “steals.”

Low Rises, Mid Rises and Attached Villas in Pelican Bay still show a higher absorption rate and a higher percentage of unsold units.  This leads me to believe that the prices on these categories might still need to adjust a tiny bit.  I think the problem is that there are a number of sellers who don’t “have to” sell but would “like to” sell.  The “like to” sellers push up the number of active listings which extends the absorption rate.  Currently it would take 29 months to absorb all the low rise listings on the market in Pelican Bay.

Let’s just look at Low Rises for a moment.  With 71% of all low rise listings failing to sell, that tells me that there are a lot of unmotivated sellers on the market.  A buyer will have to find the 29% that “want to” sell.  There were 20 Low Rise 3 bedroom units that sold in Pelican Bay last year with an average selling price of $589,840.00.  If a buyer was to see a 3 bedroom unit priced at $549,900.00, they should recognize that it could be priced below market depending on size, view, condition etc.  Should they want to see if the market will come down…………..NO!

There are too many nervous buyers sitting on the fence trying to make up their minds to purchase today.  My advice to these buyers is to find an experienced Realtor who can give them some pertinent statistics with an opinion of those statistics.

My advice to all sellers whether they are Pelican Bay or all of Naples is this: either price your home properly or do not put it on the market.  An experience Realtor will be able to view your home, give you statistics, and tell you what price you should market your home.
