Let's Talk Hot Off The Press...
Buyers are Back... 
Homes Under Contract Soar 24% in October


Naples, Fla. (November 22, 2019) - As predicted by a group of Naples real estate brokers, buyer activity began to rise in October with a remarkable 23.7 percent increase in overall pending sales (homes under contract) to 987 pending sales during October 2019 compared to 798 pending sales in October 2018. Sellers also felt a surge in showings (up 40 percent compared to October 2018), and the number of price reductions slowed to just 15 percent of the properties available in October's overall inventory compared to September, which saw 26 percent of its inventory's prices reduced. Price reduction activity is an important behavior for buyers to watch as it is an indication of how eager sellers are to sell.
Closed sales during October increased 9.7 percent to 758 closed sales compared to 689 closed sales in October 2018, according to the October 2019 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). 
 Closed sales during October increased 9.7 percent to 758 closed sales compared to 689 closed sales in October 2018, according to the October 2019 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). 




"These pre-season pending sales numbers are setting us up to have a good winter sales season," said Dominic Pallini, Broker at Vanderbilt Realty. "Inventory is also going up yet prices have been holding steady."

Even though October's overall inventory decreased 17.7 percent to 5,351 homes for sale from 6,500 homes for sale in October 2018, there were actually 362 more homes that came onto the market in October compared to September. According to Pallini, a fair amount of the new inventory is in the new construction market where builders are pricing homes aggressively and offering sweeteners to agents and buyers via incentives.

"A large majority of the new construction over the last year appears to be in the market's "sweet spot", which is the category of homes priced below $500,000," said Jeff Jones, Broker at Keller Williams Naples. "This influx of new construction is probably why the median closed price in that price range hasn't shifted much."

According to Tom Bringardner, Jr., President/CEO of Premier Commercial, "median closed prices in the upper end of the market [homes priced at $2 million and above] rose 8 percent" in October 2019 to $3,200,000 from $2,962,500 in October 2018. However, when 57 percent of the market's available inventory are homes priced under $500,000, and the majority of new listings every month are also in this range, it's easy to understand how the overall median closed price reported for the entire market appears to be decreasing. 

The overall median closed price decreased 3 percent in October to $329,950 from $340,000 in October 2018. But it's important to remember that there are also three times as many properties for sale under $300,000 than properties for sale over $2 million in Naples.

"Inventory has kept prices attractive which drives demand," said Budge Huskey, President, Premier Sotheby's International Realty. "The under $500,000 market is driving our overall market today. This is naturally bringing the median closed price down."

The NABOR® October 2019 Market Reports provide comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. NABOR® sales statistics are presented in chart format, including these overall (single-family and condominium) findings:

Let's Talk Donna's Tidbits...



dinner at LaBagette, and lots of fun and music! This is the first of its kind in Collier County, so you won’t want to miss it and the opportunity to support the Friends of Collier Museums.

Our next tour is coming up shortly at the REVS Institute (you might remember reading about them in the newspaper here and there). They feature marvelous historic automobiles, many are one of a kind! It’s a fantastic tour which will be held on December 6th from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. The men especially won’t want to miss this tour. We’ve offered it a few times but were always “sold out” quickly and we promised to plan another tour again, so here it is. Most of these automobiles were owned, raced or purchased by the Collier family – great racing enthusiasts themselves and also part of our local history. I won’t be writing about this tour in the newspaper, so please send an email to Mike at Michael.Brownlee@CollierCountyFL.gov if you wish to join us (limit two per person).

The opportunity will be gobbled up quickly. We will meet at the museum. If you have problems walking or standing, it might be a little difficult unless you have a walker or cane. There is plenty of walking, lots of reading, lots of marvelous information from the docents, and some stairs but also an elevator.
