First Quarter 2017 LAmbiance Sales Statistics

May 18, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Everyone keeps asking me “How’s the market doing?”  Let’s take a look at the first quarter of 2016’s statistics and compare them with the first quarter of 2017’s statistics.

GARDEN HOMES

2016 2017
Number of Sales 5 1
Average Sales Price $624,600.00 $523,000.00
Median Sales Price $639,000.00 $523,000.00

You can see that the first quarter of 2017 had a lot less activity than the first quarter of 2016.  In fact as of today, there are only 2 garden home sales since the beginning of January.

COACH HOMES

2016 2017
Number of Sales 2 4
Average Sales Price $807,500.00 $835,000.00
Median Sales Price $807,500.00 $810,000.00

Coach Homes had a modest increase in their average and median sales prices.

Low Rises in Pelican Bay had an increase in price in the first quarter of Pelican Bay with just a tad more closed sales than the first quarter of 2016.  View 2017 Low-Rise Pelican Bay statistics HERE.   To view the first quarter statistics for the Naples market click HERE.Coach homes saw 4 sales in the first quarter of 2017 with a price increase in both the median and average sale prices.

There is only one unit for sale currently in L’Ambiance.  Pelican Bay has just 53 low rises on the market as of today.  53 low rise units for sale gives us a “normal” market of 6 months of inventory.

Until things become more steady in the world, I don’t think we are going to see the market have sizable increases.  Is it a good time to sell?  Yes, if you are aware of market pricing and don’t try to ask way too much for your residence. While Sellers would like our prices to increase 15% each year, it just is not going to happen at present.

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.

How Long Will Your House Last?

March 2, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – While our lovely community of LAmbiance consists of condominiums, owners could still benefit from taking a glance at the following.

how-long-will-house-last

How old are the items in your LAmbiance unit?

While the condominium association takes care of our common elements, LAmbiance is 22 years old.  If you are an owner who still has the original GE kitchen appliances the builder put in our units, you are living on borrowed time according to above information.  Ask yourself, “How old is my hot water tank?” “How old is my A/C unit?” If the answer is “The original.” You may want to start looking into replacing them.

If you are contemplating selling your unit, original appliances and components date your unit. You might hope to get top dollar for a unit that has original EVERYTHING in the unit but I am here to tell you that it won’t happen.

What should you do if you are thinking of selling your L’Ambiance unit?  Give me a call.  I can help you strategize a plan to get your home sold without spending a great deal on remodeling.

This is just a reminder that LAmbiance will have its dryer vents being cleaned March 7th – March 10th. This cleaning will take place from the roof.  If you would like to have the company also clean your dryer connections from the inside of your unit, it will cost you an additional $25.00.  You’ll need to call Lintaway at 239-573-4300 to schedule this service.

Don’t forget our LAmbiance BBQ Bash on Sunday, March 12th from 5:30 – 7:30 PM at the LAmbiance clubhouse.  The cost of the BBQ Bash is $18.00 per person.  You’ll need to bring your money to Carolyn at 2400 Lambiance CIR #102 by Monday, March 6th . Don and I will be there and we hope to see you there too!

Were you aware that Naples, FL was named #1 cleanest city in the U.S.?

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.

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.

Which listing price is better – $200K or $199K?

August 12, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay- Naples, FL –  I saw this article this morning and just had to click on it……..

Source: Which listing price is better – $200K or $199K?

When I list a property I always use the 9’s approach. Why? My price strategy is to attract as many qualified potential buyers to my listing.  When a Buyer or a Realtor® searches for a property on-line they will normally put in a price range. Let’s imagine you are a Buyer searching for properties for sale in Pelican Bay between $400,000.00 – $600,000.00. Some computer programs will give you results between $400,000.00 – $599,999.99.  You’d have to do a separate search for $600,000.00 and higher to find properties listed at $600,000.00. If a Seller is listed with the 9’s approach, his listing would come up in the first search.  Wouldn’t you want your home found on the first search?

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.

LAmbiance removal of Ficus

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

pitch apple

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.

LAmbiance Real Estate Activity

October 30, 2015

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  Have you been wondering what is happening in the real estate market in LAmbiance?  It’s been a busy year, not only for LAmbiance but also for Pelican Bay.

Every once in a while I receive a postcard in the mail from a Realtor® listing real estate activity in LAmbiance.  This card can give you a quick glance at prices; however you are not able to see photos of the units or all the information on the units.

In my LAmbiance blog,  I provide a link to the real estate activity in LAmbiance like this: Click here for: LAmbiance real estate activity. Clicking on this link will give you more information than you will ever obtain from a postcard.  Once you click on the above link, this is what you will see:

LAmbiance Real Estate Activity

I thought you might like to have an explanation of how you get to see the photos and full listing information, including the list price and the sales price of all the listings.

If you want to see full size photos of the listing, click on the icon that looks like a photo. You’ll be taken to a screen that looks like this:

Full photo shot

You can’t see it very well in this photo but there is a carrot symbol > in the middle right and left hand sides of the photo that allow you to scroll through all the photos.

When you are at the original list, you can click on the ML# to be taken to a full information sheet on the listing which will show the sales information.  It will look like this:

Full Information sheet

Note: The sales price list is on the right hand side under the MLS number.  The gray vertical bar on the right hand side of the page allows you to scroll up and down for more information.  If there is a virtual tour for the listing, you will see a link you’ll be able to click on to view the tour.

The letters A, P, PC and S to the right of the MLS# indicate if the listing is Active, Pending, Pending with Contingencies or Sold.

As of today, we have 7 Active listings in LAmbiance showing an average of 123 days on the market.  14 Sales have been reported in LAmbiance showing an average of 55 days on the market. 

The average days on the market for LAmbiance’s active listings does concern me a bit.  As of today in Pelican Bay, there has been 101 Low-Rise listing sold with an average market time of 57 days and an average price of $545,117.00. 

What does this mean? In the past when I have seen market times rise, it usually means that properties are plateauing or overpriced.  I am closely watching market times in relationship to the scarcity of inventory. As of today, there are only 26 low rise listings on the market in Pelican Bay. Scarcity of inventory is certainly helping prices rise.

I hope you find all this information helpful. I try to provide as much useful real estate information to our neighborhood as I can.  If you could care to comment, just click on the comment link at the bottom of this blog entry.

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

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.

Storm Clouds Over Pelican Bay 6 22 15

One night I managed to capture this unique sunset.

Unique Pelican Bay Susnet

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!

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.
