Naples 3rd Quarter 2014 Real Estate Market Report

Naples 3rd Quarter 2014 Real Estate Market Report

Here is the 3rd Quarter 2014 report issued by NABOR, the Naples Area Board of Realtors3rd Quarter Inventory Remains Tight     Naples, Fla. (October 17, 2014) - Limited inventory continues to be the story of the Naples area real estate market, according to the third quarter report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®). Inventory of existing homes decreased 9 percent from 4,080 homes available in the 3rd quarter of 2013 to 3,702 homes in the 3rd quarter of 2014. This tight inventory affected sales activity as demonstrated by a 10 percent decrease in pending sales from 2,548 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 2,304 pending sales in 3rd quarter 2014; and an 11 percent decrease in closed sales from 2,339 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 2,093 closed sales in 3rd quarter 2014.   Contrary to the reduction of pending and closed sales in the 3rd quarter of 2014, real estate agents across Collier County reported being very busy keeping up with the growing demand. This anomaly, as confirmed by a panel of brokers analyzing the NABOR® 3rd Quarter 2014 Naples area market statistics, is likely a result of the market experiencing an influx of new home construction that, while not reported in the Southwest Florida MLS, has replenished the void resulting from a decreased inventory in the resale market.      The NABOR® 3rd Quarter 2014 Report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges, and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. The NABOR® 3rd Quarter 2014 sales statistics are presented in chart format, including these overall (single-family and condominium) findings:  

  • Pending sales of single family homes over $2 million increased 26 percent from 43 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 54 3rd quarter 2014.
  • Pending sales of condominiums between $1 million and $2 million increased 29 percent from 38 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 49 in 3rd quarter 2014.
  • Overall closed sales in the $300,000 to $500,000 category increased 13 percent from 398 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 451 in 3rd quarter 2014.
  • Overall closed sales in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 14 percent from 91 in 3rd quarter 2013 to 104 in 3rd quarter 2014.
  • Overall median closed price increased 13 percent from $234,000 in 3rd quarter 2013 to $265,000 in 3rd quarter 2014.
  • Overall median home price of homes over $300,000 decreased 7 percent from $530,000 in 3rd quarter 2013 to $493,000 in 3rd quarter 2014.
