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.

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.

L’Ambiance Real Estate Activity

August 3, 2017

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay Naples, FL – WOW!  It has been a rainy summer here in Naples.  Over the last few days we received so much rain we have reach the levels of rain for the whole month of August 2016!  Needless to say the rain is hampering our painting project.  Hopefully sunny skies will prevail long enough to get our painting project finished in a timely manner.

It has been a quiet summer for real estate in L’Ambiance.  April 21st saw 200 #103 come under contract.  The next closed sale we had, 300 #106 closed on August 2nd.  At present we only have one active listing on the market, one pending sale and 7 closed sales.  3 of the closed sales are garden residences; the other 4 closed sales are coach homes. It is interesting to note that all three of the garden homes that closed had updated kitchens. To view these listings, CLICK HERE.

As of this morning, Pelican Bay’s active listings were as follows:

  • 32 Low-Rise Listings
  • 14 Mid-Rise Listings
  • 58 High-Rise Listings

Even though Pelican Bay’s listing inventory is low, Buyers are still being cautious about making buying decisions.

Don and I were down at the beach the other night and I snapped this lovely photo. Enjoy!

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.
