And please remember to thank a Veteran this Fourth of July as we celebrate our independence.

How’s the Market?
At the beginning of July we find the Naples real estate market in a continuing boom. Sales volumes increased 9% over last month and the arrival rate of new properties cannot keep up with the sales pace – so supplies are down further. The All Naples Market (Matrix) now shows a 3.69 months inventory. Remember when supplies are less than 12 months prices tend to rise. A 3.60 month inventory is very supportive of further price increases.
Here is a look neighborhood by neighborhood:
Old Naples 3.67 months – volume down slightly, and supply up – but prices up Pelican Bay 2.30 months – volume up, supply down, prices up Windstar on Naples Bay 2.6 months – volume down, supply down, prices up Crayton Road 3.54 months – volume up, supply down, prices up Royal Harbor 7.69 months – volume down, supply down, prices up Golden Shores (single family) 2.0 months – volume up, same supply, prices up Oyster Bay (single family) – only one home left for sale! Port Royal and Aqualane Shores 8.75 months – volume down, supply down, prices up
We Are Tearing Down Another One!
Just this week we closed on another beautiful, on water property at1480 Curlew on the Royal Harbor peninsula. We plan to tear down the existing structure and build a new 3,000 square foot+ British West Indies home.
Our hope is to have 1480 Curlew available for showing in January and we are already receiving some purchase interest (what a market!). The new home will be built on the Oyster Bay canal just 100 yards from Naples Bay and two steps closer to the bay then its sister home at 1520 Curlew – so no bridges or obstructions to the Bay as you head out to the Gulf. Head out on the water to restaurants, or the beach or longer runs to Key West and the Bahamas – all from your own backyard.
We are designing the home in the British West Indies tradition with an inviting entrance revealing a wide open floor plan and straight through views to the dock and canal. Pleasing colors, a relaxed feel and a warm feeling of home. Four good size bathrooms and four full baths so owners and guests will have plenty of room and comfort. A big master bedroom with a walk out to the spa and views down the canal. The master suite runs nearly the length of the east side of the home with two big walk in closets. A wonderful outdoor space surrounded by the master and guest bedrooms offering an outdoor fireplace, outdoor grill and eating area. A pool with a southern exposure to keep you warm even on January evenings. Well you get the idea. A touch of the British West Indies on Naples waters.
For some entertainment you may want to watch us tear down the sister house at 1520 Curlew on youtube. Great video if you like to watch a machine eat a house! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU1iL09YNVw)
Summer means great bargains in Naples and a nice lifestyle
Last night one of our seasonal clients stopped by to share a bottle of wine and we were again reminded of the wonderful summer lifestyle here. He remarked Naples has the best year round climate and he we was very much enjoying the slower summer pace.
We might also mention there are some great off season “deals” to be found. Where else could you get a world class dinner for two and a bottle of wine all for under $30? We also note the many retail shop bargains, promotions and general welcome to any summer shopper. And yes, the Silverspot movie theater is expanding its offerings with more great movies and the convenience of online seat reservations. Anyway, you get the idea, lots of fun at a good price right now. Come on down and enjoy!
