April Naples Market Report

April Naples Market Report

According to the April Naples Market Report, real estate activity set new records. There were 1,882 properties sold for $1,617,562,522 up from $1.5 billion last month! The highest priced home sold for $18,000,000 in Pelican Bay. Overall, there were 380 properties sold at or above $1 Million.

The increase in both pending sales and closed sales continues to contribute to our reduction in inventory. On a positive note, inventory has increased 14 percent since January. However, it is not enough to keep up with demand.

Home buyers shows no sign of slowing as people migrate to the Naples area to take advantage of the Naples lifestyle. In fact, Naples was recently ranked the Number 1 Beach Town in America! Key factors measured were affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health as well as the overall quality of life.

April 2021 versus April 2020 Highlights

  • Closed sales increased 121 percent compared to April of the previous year.
  • Overall pending sales increased to 2,037 or a 232 percent jump over last April.
  • Inventory dropped 77 percent down from 6,224 homes to 1,432 homes for sale.
  • Average days on market fell 37 percent down to 55 days.

Similar to last month, condos led the way with a 145.3 percent increase in closed sales. Single family home sales also showed a significant increase, up 95.7 percent compared to the same time last year. The increase in sales combined with low inventory has led to higher prices, with the overall median sales price increasing 31 percent.

Pending sales continue to set records, up by 232 percent compared to the same time last year. It’s important to note, it’s difficult to compare last April to this April since the real estate industry experienced reduced productivity levels due to mandatory COVID-19 restrictions similar to all other businesses throughout the country.

Also, the percent of list price for closed sales remain near all time highs at 98.8 percent. We continue to see properties sold at or above list price. Due to bidding wars, there has been an increase in the use of escalation clauses being implemented in negotiations. If you are considering purchasing a home, put yourself in the best position to win the deal by working with a professional real estate agent.

Finally, we remain in a seller’s market with just a 1.1 month’s supply of properties available down from 1.6 month’s supply during the previous month. For those of you considering selling, now is an excellent time to list your home for sale. Homeowners are maximizing their profits and you may be surprised to learn how much your home is worth.

So, if you’re ready to take advantage of today’s seller’s market, let’s connect to discuss your homes value.

New Construction in Naples Golf Communities

Should I use a realtor if I'm buying new constructionBuilders are also recording record sales. Similar to resales, there are often more buyers than new homes available. An agent can help you put your best foot forward to increase your chances of submitting a winning bid.

Before you go it alone on a new construction property, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours.  There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you.

There are only a few golf communities still offering new construction homes. To learn more about those communities, contact NaplesGolfGuy at 239-370-0892.
