Real Estate Headed In The Right Direction Again

Posted on Tuesday, November 13, 2012

From Jamie Dimon’s comments on CNBC last week to additional national reports it seems real estate is headed in the right direction again. In our local Naples, Florida market inventory is down, prices are more stable and if we see some volume increase in the coming tourist season we could see a nice upswing in prices. Nothing like the glory days of a few years back but certainly better.

Florida Realtors reported this morning reported on the national scene saying  (
) “The housing market recovery should continue through the coming years, assuming there are no further limitations on the availability of mortgage credit or a “fiscal cliff,” according to forecast presentations at a residential forum at the 2012 Realtors® Conference and Expo. Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), said the housing market clearly turned around in 2012. ‘Existing-home sales, new-home sales and housing starts are all recording notable gains this year in contrast with suppressed activity in the previous four years.’”
For further evidence of improving we trends we researched the local Naples, Florida market.  According to the Sunshine MLS this morning for the All Naples area, pending sales are up and broke through their twelve month running average volume – a sign the market is starting to wake up here early season. Sold listings are also up and prices remain stable. All real estate is local so be sure to check with your Realtor for local market trends – but the national and Naples, Florida market is looking better.

Will all of this last? Hard to say. We need a reasonable landing in the fiscal cliff discussions – but almost any reasonable answer will eliminate a lot of uncertainty and may give us a foundation for a lasting run. We will see.
