Naples, Fla. (December 19, 2014) – Sellers in the luxury market can expect a very good buyer turnout in the coming months according to a consensus among Naples’ top brokers after they analyzed the November 2014 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Their prediction was based on several factors including overall pending sales activity, which rose 11 percent for homes priced over $1 million; overall closed sales activity, which increased 17 percent for homes priced over $1 million; and that the majority of homes sold in the $2 million and above category were cash sales.
“Pending and closed sales activity in all price categories above $300,000 was up over the past 12-month period ending in November,” said Tom Bringardner, Jr., President/CEO of Premier Commercial.
“Activity in the high-end market is remarkable coming into season,” said Steve Barker, Advising Broker for Equity Realty. “The report indicated that a greater number of homes in the $2 million and above price category were sold  as compared to what sold in the same month last year . This is a good sign for sellers in our market because people who have the resources to pay cash for million dollar homes are smart and careful investors. They are not going to make a poor investment decision, which speaks volumes for the value of our market.”
The November 2014 report showed heightened activity in several areas of the luxury market including a 40 percent increase in overall closed sales for single family homes priced $2 million and above from 202 in the 12-months ending November 2013 to 282 in the 12-months ending November 2014; an 11 percent increase in closed sales for condominiums priced $1 million – $2 million from 234 in the 12-months ending November 2013 to 260 in the 12-months ending November 2014; and a 35 percent increase in single family median home prices in the Naples Beach area from $739,000 in the 12-months ending November 2013 to $1,000,000 in the 12-months ending November 2014.
We hope this NABOR report is another sign of a great 2015 real estate market to come. A strong real estate market is good for everyone – the Realtors of course, but also the trades who build and renovate, and the resulting financial support for our local merchants.
