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.

As seen in Gulfshore Life January 2015 issue.


Aqualane Shores isn’t far behind.

Cheryl Turner, a broker associate at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty, represented the buyer of 2168 Southwinds Drive, a 5,556 square­ foot home for boaters overlooking Jamaica Cove-just north of Port Royal. With five bedrooms and a den, the home is perfect for an expanding family or for entertaining. The den and a guest suite occupy part of the first floor, along with the huge gourmet kitchen, a formal dining room and the living area. “There are beautiful finishes and moldings, but it is not ornate,” Turner says.

A half-flight of stairs separates the second guest suite on the second level and the master bedroom on the top floor. The master suite has a fireplace and a balcony, as well as his-and-hers offices and his-and-hers baths. Naples-based Falcon Design Inc. designed the home, which was built in 2010, in a West Indies-inspired style with marble and wooden floors.

Outside, a new dock and seawall have been built for the new owners, a retired businessman and his wife from the Northeast. The area behind the home also includes an infinity-edge pool and a spa,-as well as an outdoor fireplace. And while Aqualane Shores doesn’t provide access to the exclusive Port Royal Club, the buyers “are getting a little more value dollar­ wise” with their new home, Turner says. “Port Royal lots and lands are going to be more expensive,” she explains . At a price similar to what the couple paid, she adds, “You would get something that is older” in Port Royal.
