Homes for Sale Fort Myers FL + Homes for Sale Naples FL & Sold Report for July 2018

By | Market Report | No Comments

Market Slows Down Slightly in June

(Fort Myers, FL – July 23, 2018) – The Lee County housing market slowed down slightly in June, according to the latest data released by Florida Realtors®. However, that dip is typical for the beginning of the summer months in Southwest Florida.

Overall there were 1,244 Closed Sales of Single Family Homes in June 2018, compared to 1,276, while May 2018 had 1,400 closed sales, which is a difference of 156 total closings. However, compared to June 2017, the total number of closed sales only dropped 2.5% year-over-year.

Other changes were minimal both for Single Family Homes and Townhouses and Condos last month. Median Sale Price for Condos was up 7.3%, while the inventory dropped 6.5%. The number of active Single Family listings was up 5.1% and the inventory was up 6.3%.

The biggest year-over-year changes come from city breakdowns as well as price points. The largest drop was in Estero, where there were 25 fewer closed sales on Single Family Homes last month – a drop of 33.3%. Fort Myers Beach had the biggest jump at 18.2%.

Single Family properties listed in the $50,000-$99,999 and then $100,000-$149,999 ranges both saw major drops in closed sales, at -34.6% and -35.5% respectively. The biggest increase came in the $250,000-$299,999 range with a 15.9% jump. Condos in that same range skyrocketed with a 44% increase in Closed Sales last month. The biggest drop for Condos came in the Less than $50,000 category, with only 3 closed sales (or a drop of 50%).

Luxury Home Sales Lead to a Strong Second Quarter Finish

Naples, Fla. (July 13, 2018) – Activity in the Naples area housing market during the Second Quarter of 2018 remained steady in comparison to activity during the Second Quarter of 2017. According to the 2Q 2018 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), overall closed sales increased 2 percent to 2,926 properties in the 2Q of 2018 from 2,880 in the 2Q of 2017. But in the $2 million and above single-family home market, closed sales rose 25 percent in the 2Q of 2018, which—along with other market indicators—leads many broker analysts to believe that interest in luxury homes will remain in high demand.

Available inventory at the end of the 2Q of 2018 was 5,165 properties, just 24 units behind the inventory level at the end of the 2Q of 2017 (5,189 properties). “This tells me that homes are coming onto the market at the same rate we are selling them,” said Mike Hughes, Vice President and General Manager for Downing-Frye Realty, Inc.

Inventory rose 15 percent in the $2 million and above condominium market during the 2Q of 2018, which may be a factor in the uptick of pending sales in the luxury condominium market as it rose 32 percent during the 2Q of 2018.

“Inventory in other parts of the state and nation are stretched thin, hovering between 3 and 4 months of inventory, but Naples enjoys almost 7 months of inventory,” said Budge Huskey, President, Premier Sotheby’s International Realty. “What’s even more impressive is that we have such a great selection of homes for buyers despite the recent increase in sales and still having some undergoing repairs from Hurricane Irma.”

“We are seeing a very different sales environment locally from that of 10 years ago when home sales in northern states stalled,” said Coco Amar, a managing broker at John R. Wood Properties. “But now that homes are moving fast up north, sales of high-end single-family homes in Naples are stronger than ever.”

“It’s hard to ignore the increase in interest for ultra-luxury properties,” said Huskey. “A $48.8 million sale for a home in Naples is impressive, but when you learn there was a second potential buyer who was considering the property you know what type of buyers are in the market.”

According to Adam Vellano, West Coast Sales Manager, BEX Realty – Florida, there were four property sales over $10 million during the 2Q. “It’s possible the new tax laws are impacting people’s minds about residency and we’re benefiting from it.”

Brokers analyzing the market report agreed that multiple offers on luxury properties have risen. But whatever factor(s) is driving the increased interest, closed sales of luxury homes over $2 million are positioned to rise again as the stage has been set in the 2Q where pending sales in this price category increased 22 percent for single-family homes and 32 percent for condominiums.

The real estate market’s stability during the 2Q also extended to its median closed prices which increased only 1 percent to $345,000 in the 2Q of 2018 from $340,000 in the 2Q of 2017. However, despite increased sales in nearly every price category for properties priced above $300,000 during the 2Q of 2018, the median closed prices for properties above $300,000 decreased 5 percent!

As pointed out by Vellano, sales of single-family homes near Naples Beach and in the expanding North Naples area saw the greatest increase during the 2Q, and condominium sales in Central Naples outpaced all other home type sales during the 2Q. “According to the report, we averaged 30 transactions a day during the 2Q,” said Vellano. “That’s good news for REALTORS® as we move into the summer months.”

Brad is Absolutely Incredible

By | -Testimonials, Market Report | No Comments

Brad is absolutely incredible. My fiance and I were first time home buyers and very nervous about the process. Brad was extremely transparent and patient from start to finish.

He was able to connect us with an inspector and financing options as well — we never felt that we had to choose from his preferred list but trusted him so much that we did not want to look elsewhere.

While Brad is the only person I’ve ever bought a home with, I can tell you that he was less pushy and easier to be around than any of the other agents/brokers we contemplated working with. 10/10 would recommend Brad to anyone else and will certainly use him/his team for our next big purchase!”

Brad and His Team Surpassed Our Expectations!

By | -Testimonials, Market Report | No Comments

“We contacted Brad with some questions on purchasing property in South West Florida as a referral and Brad and his team did not disappoint!

He is very knowledgeable and he worked with us and our budget to find the perfect property.

Being from Ontario Canada we were very uncertain on the process and documents required, but Brad and his team walked us through every step and surpassed our expectations.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and always answering our questions promptly. Looking forward to the next venture!!”
