Over 44 percent of homes purchased in October used conventional financing methods (e.g., mortgages), according to a report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®) that detailed activity in the greater Naples housing market during October 2016. The October 2016 Market Report, which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), showed a gradual – but continuous – decline in cash sales with growth in conventional sales during the last 12 months.

n October 2015, cash sales accounted for nearly 65 percent of all homes sales in Naples, whereas in October 2016, cash sales accounted for only 56 percent of all homes sales in Naples.

In October 2015, conventional financing increased to 35 percent of overall sales.”...
