A Rare Mid Month Market Alert from Naples Best Addresses

A Rare Mid Month Market Alert from Naples Best Addresses

We felt we had to issue a rare mid month newsletter to touch on this unprecedented RED HOT market we are seeing right now.

In short, working with a highly skilled and experienced realtor is more important than ever:

  • If you are thinking about selling, right now is a terrific time and we would like to talk about our new multiple offer listing strategy that has been extremely successful for our sellers.
  • If you are thinking about buying, let’s talk today about how to get all of your ducks in a row to beat out the fierce competition going after the same limited inventory.

See the infographic to get a quick sense of the market. It compares year over year in key areas. Keep in mind a year ago we were in the heart of the COVID pandemic and the market wasn’t great. From there inventory has dropped 77%!

On top of the very low inventory, Florida is a hot market right now. Many are making the leap to a warm climate with favorable tax rates. Strong demand and low inventory means quickly rising prices.

To give an example, let’s look at a neighborhood in Naples called Windstar where we are one of the top teams. At the moment there is nothing on the market. When something does come on it sells in hours, not days. Sellers need a pro-realtor to not grab the first offer, but generate multiple offers and sort through to the best one. Buyers need to be plugged in and ready to pull the trigger as soon as possible after a FaceTime or in-person showing. Windstar is just a microcosm of the Southwest Florida real estate market and many of the same strategies apply to the market as a whole.

Some other forces on our market worth discussing:

  • New construction backlogs of over a year
  • Insurance regulation changes leading to difficulty and higher prices
  • High inflation and low interest rates
  • Difficulty in procuring building materials, appliances, and furniture
  • Cash buyers winning almost every time against financed buyers
  • Challenges for first time and low income buyers
  • Naples continuing to grow, especially to the east
  • Short and long term rentals nearly impossible to find and rents going through the roof

Let’s talk today to discuss all of your real estate needs and position you for success in this unusual market.
