Experts Report 2Q 2016 Real Estate Market Remains Balanced
As Collier County’s resale housing inventory levels continue to 
outpace last year’s levels, median closed sale prices for homes over 
$300,000 remain fairly unchanged. Several brokers who recently 
analyzed the Second Quarter and June 2016 Market Reports 
released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®) 
elieve the 2Q real estate market’s behavior is reminiscent of how 
the local housing market behaved in 2003.

“During the recession we experienced a dramatic increase in inventory, 
particularly in properties below $300,000,” …

“Sellers who anticipated a continued increase in the value of their homes a
re getting a dose of new reality,” said Cindy Carroll, SRA, with the real estate a
ppraisal and consultancy firm Carroll & Carroll, Inc. “The report showed 
virtually no increase in closed sale prices in the second quarter versus the first 
quarter so sellers need to reset their thinking because we have entered a new 
ycle that looks a lot more like where we were in 2003 and 2004.”

Carroll added that she doesn’t anticipate overall median closed sale prices will 

go down anytime this year, but she admitted that she does foresee list prices 
decreasing. “It’s a matter of staying competitive, and right now the competition i
s more inventory and new construction. So if a seller is really motivated to sell, t
hen their asking price has to be realistic as it will determine how quickly the 
sale will happen.”…

Dining by Boat in the Naples Area
IWhether it’s a shrimp basket at Coconut Jack’s, gator bites at Stan’s Idle Hour or cutting-edge Continental cuisine at M Waterfront Grille, somehow i
t all tastes better if you’ve traveled there by boat.
The region offers a bounty of boat-accessible options, ranging from ultra-casual t
o special-occasion chic. Following is a sampling of the spots available.
The primary thing to remember is that many of these establishments have only a few 
slips and popular spots fill up quickly — especially on weekends — so call ahead to 
ensure there’s room and to get precise nautical directions before making the trip.
