Want To Invest in a CNN Money Top Ten Real Estate Turn Around City? Consider Naples, Florida

Posted on Monday, April 30, 2012

Followers of the blog will know of Naples’ top ten ranking in a recent CNN money study regarding real estate turnarounds. Let’s take a look this morning at the real estate market here in Naples and why we are seeing the turnaround – and why it may attract more investors.
1) Inventory, Inventory, Inventory. The old demand-supply forces are hard at work here in Naples with property inventories now below nine months – a big drop from two years ago and headed lower. This should help support prices.
2) Price. Up 20%+ in the first three months of 2012 according to the Sunshine MLS for the all Naples area. Wow – that is an eye catcher and worthy of a look.
3) Spec Building. Anecdotal evidence only here but a drive by in Olde Naples again yesterday after church shows project after project popping up again.
4) The Big Boys. Commercial developers making recent announcements regarding new properties like Sable Bay with 2,000+ units.
5) Their Back. Rumors on the street of buyers with multiple investment properties from foreclosure-flippers, buy-rent or just plain buy and hold out there.

All of this is not without risk as we all should know by now. Will the Naples real estate turnaround hold? We will see. We are entering the off season for tourism and rumors abound nationwide of banks starting to step up foreclosures (think increased supply) again.
Give us a call or email and we will be pleased to talk about on-the-ground views of the market here and what we are seeing – and most of all, have a great week.
