Inventories Bounce On Tight Summer Market

Posted on Thursday, November 07, 2013

Finally, inventories are up a bit in Naples Florida real estate. So What? Well the so what is supply and demand drives markets, even real estate markets, and with our low inventories all summer prices are driven up and many buyers shake their heads looking for something to buy.

This morning according to the SWFLAMLS (our new MLS this year) Naples single family home inventories stand at 7.3 months and the condo market at 8.1 months.
What is a good level of inventory? My old real estate teacher Real Estate Bob used to say about 12 months inventory is when markets are at equilibrium. Frankly I like a lower number especially after the downturn as markets are still skitterish and slightly lower inventories will be more supportive of prices.
Readers of our blog will also know all real estate is local – that is each neighborhood and sometimes street and high rise has its own market of supply driven factors. Take a look at specific data in your favorite areas whether you are buying or selling. Your realtor should be able to help you out with this.
