2014 Real Estate Prediction #3: New Construction Booms

Posted on Saturday, December 28, 2013

As the readers of our blog know we are laying out some predictions for 2014 so here goes prediction #3: New construction spurred by increasing demand will provide some great new property options.

The Isles at Collier Reserve will begin their 1,600 home build in 2014 as well as other new big projects in the area. It is a great sign that these large projects are continuing to resume, and really is a testament to the strength of the local market.

Just to show you how needed new construction seems to be the folks at Treviso Bay, Lely and Fiddlers will tell you  – the new stuff is selling like hot cakes.  Yesterday we just helped our buyers find a new place at Fiddlers and they love the new construction and the new features.

However, the real question is, will all of this great new construction be enough to keep up with our predicted growing demand? We think partially, but not completely. Currently, according to our new Matrix based MLS, 1,368 single family homes were sold in the last 120 days against a current inventory of only 2,016. This pace gives us just a 5.9 month inventory of single family homes. While this is one of the best seller’s markets we have had in years, the inventory is well short of the historical 12 month supply for a stable real estate market. We expect inventories to rise in 2014, but only slightly to the 7-8 month range.

So if you want new in 2014 we have it in Naples.  It may not be on the beach or in Olde Naples unless you follow along with our spec building ideas – but nonetheless new is coming.

While it is great to look forward to 2014, we generally don’t worry about things that are out of our control. One thing that we can promise is Naples Best Addresses will continue to work hard for our clients, to give them the best experience possible. Even if you are just in the very beginning stages of making a real estate decision, give us a call to lean on our expertise. We are also deeply grateful for all of the referrals that you trust us with.
