Hurricane Irma

September 5, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples FL – My husband, Don and I have been following Hurricane Irma’s projected path. We are heeding the warnings and have already begun to put up our hurricane shutters.  We wanted to get a head start on this because there could be rain tomorrow.  Today’s been a busy day getting all our important papers together and packing in case we decide to evacuate.

If you haven’t done so already, you want to make sure EVERYTHING is off your lanais. You don’t want to have projectiles smashing through your lanai sliding doors or your neighbors’ lanai doors.  This same philosophy applies to any flower pots you have around your unit.  If you are not in residence, you’ll want to make sure your home watch person gets your furniture in from the lanai.

Don’s been busy putting up our hurricane shutters.  He’ll need a dip in the pool when he is done.

The State of Florida has a good site for Hurricane Preparedness at: http://www.stateofflorida.com/articles/hurricane-preparedness-guide.aspx  

The National Hurricane Center NOOA is also a good site to follow for the projected path of the storm: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/  They also have a good site for Hurricane Preparedness.  http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/prepare/ready.php

It’s a good idea to get ready NOW!  It looks as if Irma could be coming our way on Sunday.  I hope you all stay safe.

Lake LAmbiance

August 28, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – While Hurricane Harvey spared Naples, we still received a fair amount of rain from the storm.  Several areas in Naples had flooded streets. While I was out and about on Friday, I snapped these photos of our LAmbiance lake.  Some LAmbiance residents are never in town during rainy season.  These residents only see our lake in dry season when the water level is low.  Here’s what our lake looked like on Friday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently created a neighborhood group page on Facebook for LAmbiance.  If you are a Facebook member, you can join the group by going to: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LambianceinPelicanBay  The purpose of this group is to help promote neighborhood interaction by answering questions and giving personal recommendations for goods, services, establishments to visit and things to do around LAmbiance and Naples. Group members will also be able to post photos and videos they feel might be of interest to everyone. I have made the group page a closed group so only members of the page will be able to see what other people post.  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.Take a moment to join and share a comment.

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.

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.

Here are some of our friendly LAmbaince neighbors.  Enjoy!  Hope to see you at the next event.

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.
