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.

LAmbiance BBQ Bash

March 15, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – The LAmbiance BBQ Bash which was held March 12 at the Clubhouse was a HUGE success!  Were you there?  If you were not, you missed a fun evening. I hear that 72 people attended. Neighbor Bob Duck gave a nice “Thank You” toast to the LAmbiance social committee who put together this event.  I’d also like to thank the social committee and their helpers for all the work they put into planning the event, ordering the yummy food, setting up, serving us and cleaning up.

Here are some photos I snapped at the event.  If you couldn’t be there you can at least enjoy the photos of your happy LAmbiance neighbors having a good time. We had an absolutely beautiful evening and some of us enjoyed sitting outside by the pool.

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.

Summit Fiber Optic Project Completion

December 3, 2016

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL –  It’s been a busy time here in L’Ambiance lately with the installation of the Summit Broadband ONT boxes in our coach homes.  This project finished last week. Now all of L’Ambiance has fiber optic cable into their units.  This gives all Residents 100 by 100 MPBS service that can go up to a gigabyte service at an Owner’s option. It also replaces the coax cable and telephone wire that was deteriorating under the units because they ran through conduit that was often filled with water. This caused distorted signals and signal loss.  The change to Summit fiber optics in our units should result in a decrease in service calls. A big thanks goes out to all Residents for helping us complete this project.

Our pool project finished the beginning of the fall.  Our pool and hot tub were resurfaced. Brown tile now replaces the green tile border we previously had on our pool and hot tub.

L’Ambiance is looking good, isn’t it?  More Residents are returning to their L’Ambiance units as evidenced by the activity in our neighborhood.  I hope everyone is enjoying their time in L’Ambiance.

The real estate market was slow over the summer.  I expected the market to perk up after the Presidental election but I haven’t seen that happen as of yet.  Each day I take a look at the MLS hot sheet for Pelican Bay and I see more and more price reductions coming through. I also have been seeing more expired listings pop up.  Our low rise inventory has risen also. We currently have an absorption rate of just over 8 months. I am beginning to think that we will see a slight downward shift to the market.

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.
