Naples Area Real Estate Inventory Outpaced Sales in 2016
(January 20, 2017) -
Broker analysts who analyzed the Annual, 4th Quarter and December 2016 Market Reports released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island) concluded that the local real estate market performed well in 2016 despite several unpredictable market influencers that impacted the housing market such as the February stock market slump, a low Canadian exchange rate, Brexit and Zika fears, and the presidential election. Brokers agree that factors appear to be in place for a good market in 2017.
Overall inventory increased 34 percent to 5,946 homes in year ending 2016 from 4,426 homes in year ending 2015. The Naples Beach area experienced the highest number of new listings with 437 homes added to its inventory during 2016. However, and per the Report, the Naples Beach area also saw the largest decrease in overall closed sales during 2016 of all other geographic areas reported. Overall closed sales in this highly-desired location decreased 21 percent to 1,525 homes in year ending 2016 from 1,922 homes in year ending 2015.
Closed sales of condominiums in the East Naples area and single family homes in the $500,000 to $1 million price category increased in 2016, despite overall closed sales decreasing 13 percent to 8,510 homes in year ending 2016 from 9,751 homes in year ending 2015.
Competition from new home developments in 2016 played a role resulting in fewer sales of existing homes in 2016 compared to 2015, which was a very strong year
Of note, the annual Market Report showed that the overall median closed prices for homes above $300,000 did not change during 2016. In fact, homes in the $500,000 to $1 million price category experienced only a 3 percent decrease in their overall median closed price to $650,000 in year ending 2016 from $667,000 in year ending 2015. Brokers attribute this reduction in median closed price, and the 2 percent decrease in overall median closed price for the $1 million to $2 million price category in 2016, to better informed and motivated sellers.
The NABOR® Annual 2016 Market 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® Annual 2016 sales statistics are presented in chart format, including these overall (single-family and condominium) findings:
Brokers who analyzed NABOR®'s Market Reports in 2016 predicted that inventory would rise and they believe our inventory of existing homes will continue to increase in 2017. These knowledgeable brokers advise homeowners who plan to sell in 2017 to seek guidance from a Naples REALTOR® who knows the local market and can help you price your property correctly. A REALTOR® can also identify properties best suited for buyers and negotiate a purchase price that fits any budget.

"When we first met her. Her professionalism and genuine concern on finding us what we needed was her priority. My husband and I, after meeting Fay, looked each other and thought it was a dream......someone down right HONEST and gives you both sides of the coin. The good and bad! She welcomes you with open arms. We would be very comfortable having Fay represent us all over again, along with family members and close friends. Her expertise in JUST being a Floridian, out ranks those that come into the area and sell. The history ... the state issues....the wildlife.....the preservation acres...the market....the shopping....the medical facilities....the hot spots to eat....., in general how things are just run, is something in itself. This woman is not only funny, open minded, love of others, and genuine she is someone that you want as a friend!
