"Seller Confidence Returns to Greet Seasonal Demand."

Naples, Fla. (February 24, 2023) – Evidence of growing confidence in the Naples real estate market revealed itself in January as a wave of new sellers entered the market during the month. New listings in January rose 74.5 percent compared to December 2022, and 3.2 percent to 1,338 new listings from 1,297 new listings a year ago according to the January 2023 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). But the rise in home options during January did not stymy home values as median closed prices rose 11.1 percent to $600,000 from $540,000 in January 2022.

"Naples Housing Market is Redefined."

Naples, Fla. (February 1, 2023) – In the first year after a two-year interruption in normal activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Naples real estate market is stable in terms of value, but there are not as many homes to choose from, and prices have elevated. As pandemic restrictions loosened in 2022, sellers and buyers pivoted their attention from the housing market to the travel market. As a result, and according to the December 2022 and 2022 Annual Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), overall closed sales in 2022 decreased 34.8 percent to 10,156 properties from 15,570 properties in 2021.

Naples, Fla. (December 22, 2022) – According to the November 2022 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island), there were 552 overall closed sales in November, which is a 41.4 percent decrease from 942 closed sales recorded in November 2021.

"Hurricane Ian Failed to Upset Naples Housing Market’s Resilience."

Naples, Fla. (October 21, 2022) – The impact of Hurricane Ian, as witnessed on the last two days of September, is not reflected in the September 2022 Market Report by the Naples Area Board of REALTORS® (NABOR®), which tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Given this, September’s data showed a predictable pattern of slow closed and pending sales with a slight increase in inventory, which is traditionally the case in historically stable Septembers. (The September 2022 infographic and chart are located at the end of this email.) While the report captured activity prior to Hurricane Ian’s arrival, broker analysts who reviewed the report on October…
