Naples is enjoying a spectacular winter season with very favorable weather and many tourists in our fair town. My conversations around town with local merchants show a better year over last year and smiles on many faces.
All of this is carrying through into real estate as we are in the middle of our peak real estate month of February. January set us up pretty well with some strong showings. According to the Sunshine MLS for the All Naples Area January saw median prices continue to climb slowly from $210,000 to $215,000. As a harbinger of things to come pending sales rose from 750 units to 1100 units in January so watch for a jump in closed sales by the end of this month.
Backing up the Sunshine MLS data the Naples News reported this morning on data from the Naples Area Board of Realtors (NABOR) ( see http://www.naplesnews.com/news/2013/feb/15/nabor-local-housing-market-momentum-continues/ for the full article.) They stated “the overall median price of homes sold in the Naples area increased 16 percent, and the overall closed sales increased 10 percent for the 12 months ending in January.” They went on to say “The overall median price on closed sales increased from $179,000 at the end of January 2012 to $207,000 for the 12-month period ending January 2013.”
So far so good this season. Let’s hope the trends hold all through the tourist season.
Today we are showing folks around Naples on their first trip here. How great to share our little paradise with them this morning.
