Naples, FL (June 24, 2022) – During a meeting to review the May 2022 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), long-time Naples broker Bill Coffey, Broker Manager of Amerivest Realty Naples, remarked that, “May had the highest number of new listings than any May in the last three years.” Fellow brokers who also analyzed the May report are pleased with this trend as it will lead to more options for summer buyers. New listings during May pushed the inventory of homes for sale up 58.6 percent to 2,046 properties compared to 1,290 properties in May 2021.
“Inventory has been rising since December,” said Jeff Jones, Broker at Keller Williams Naples. “By the end of May, our inventory in Naples has nearly doubled since the same time a year ago. And if you include the 889 homes that had a price reduction in May to this inventory mix, the ...

Naples, FL (February 25, 2022) – A 34.5 percent increase in new listings sparked 19,277 more showings during January compared to new listings and showings reported in December 2021. While an increase in new listings demonstrates a solid start for the real estate market this year, low inventory continues to harness the market’s potential. As a result of tight inventory, January sales activity could not meet the level of sales activity reported in January 2021. Historically, month to month sales activity during season ascends through April. But according to broker analysts reviewing the January 2022 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), a 74.9 percent decrease in inventory for January to 1,122 homes from 4,474 homes in January 2021 will not provide the same level of sales transactions that occurred ...

Naples, FL (January 27, 2022) – Demand for the Naples lifestyle eclipsed all expectations and helped to break several home-sales records in 2021. The year ended with a 25.8 percent increase in overall closed sales and a 20.3 percent increase in median closed price (year over year). Broker analysts reviewing the December and Year End 2021 Market Reports released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), agree that the Naples housing market is going through a transformation and the last 18 months of record sales activity will not be sustainable in 2022. They strongly urge that sellers and buyers work with a local REALTOR® to help them navigate transactions smoothly with the least obstacles.
Sellers of homes located in Naples capitalized on a long wave of pent-up buyer demand in 2021, a year that exceeded many NABOR® records, including over $17 billion in home ...

Naples, FL (July 23, 2021) – With less than a one month supply of inventory available, the Naples area housing market experienced a 14.5 percent decrease in overall pending sales in June to 1,256 pending sales from 1,469 pending sales in June 2020. Low inventory levels in June also contributed to a 7 percent decrease in showings for the month. This simmering of activity has broker analysts who reviewed the June 2021 Market Report released by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), certain that the wild housing market frenzy that began about a year ago – peaking in March – is now decelerating and being replaced with a new level of activity that reflects improved market equity for sellers and sustained buyer interest from people seeking permanent residency.
