My interview about Nelsons Walk in Port Royal
April 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Beaches, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Homes Sales, luxury living, Naples, Naples Real Estate, Naples Wealth, Port Royal, Premier Sothebys | No Comments

Port Royal AERIAL 2

Zillow.com has named Nelsons Walk in Port Royal the 12th richest street in the United States.

Nelsons Walk is a quiet byway in Naples, but the 26 homeowners there are actually living on Easy Street.

That’s because Nelsons, with a median home value of $10.5 million, is No. 12 on Zillow.com’s list of the country’s wealthiest streets.

No. 1 on the list is Indian Creek Island Road on Indian Creek Island in Biscayne Bay. The median home value there is $21.5 million and residents include Denzel Washington and Eddie Murphy.

Nelsons Walk has its share of celebrities too: Residents include best-selling mystery author Janet Evanovich and pest control king Truly Nolen, chairman and president of Truly Nolen Inc.

The street gets a boost right off the bat by being part of Port Royal, the most expensive community in Naples.

Cheryl Turner, a real estate agent with Premier Properties Sotheby’s International Realty in Naples, said Nelsons is “a wonderful street, fabulous,” but that its Port Royal location likely was responsible for pushing it on the national list.

“You’ve got wider water views, no bridges, the Gulf, the most exclusive neighborhood in town,” she said. “The prices are just continuing to go up.”

People are often shocked at how expensive a house in Port Royal can be, Turner said. “I had a client call on a house and the asking price was $23 million — he had thought maybe $11 million.”

What’s trending in Naples Real Estate

As we head into the second quarter of the year, the pulse of the Naples’ area real estate market has a healthy beat according to the latest report from the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR).

What’s trending in Naples Real Estate

Sales are up and so are prices.

A recent article in the Business Observer, a newspaper that covers the Florida Gulf Coast from Tampa to Naples, reported that both sales and prices of existing single-family homes and condominiums are seeing gains as high as 15% statewide. President of Florida Realtors®, Andrew Barbar, commented that the positive fundamentals of Florida’s housing sector were sustained in the fourth quarter of 2014. “Our population continues to increase at a rate of approximately 800 people per day moving into the state. Florida’s growing economy is creating new jobs and putting residents back to work.”

The greater Tampa metro area was a hot market to purchase condominiums with sales jumping nearly 18%; Collier county saw a 14% increase in the number of condominium sales and a 10% rise in median prices.

Florida Realtors® reported that those who are currently renting a condominium in Southwest Florida may soon have a more difficult time, as owners are putting their properties back on the market now that prices are increasing. With financing more readily available, down payments as little as 3.5 percent, and some restrictions on condo loans easing, qualifying for a mortgage and owning a home is becoming more appealing.
