Luxury Home Prices Surge Year-to-Date

Luxury Home PricesLuxury home prices continue to surge for the first half of the year according to realtor.com’s latest report. Most notably, Naples has been named one of the top 20 fastest growing luxury real estate markets in the country. In all, realtor.com analyzed 91 luxury markets throughout the United States. Naples in particular, saw a 15.9 percent increase year-over-year in luxury home prices.

Nationwide Luxury Home Prices: 

  • Luxury home prices continue to see strong growth this year according to the latest data from the realtor.com Luxury Home Index.
  • The entry-level price point for luxury homes increased on average 4.6% year-over-year (Based on the top five percent of all sales).

  • Million-dollar sales in the markets analyzed are up 25% over last year.
  • Days on Market for Luxury properties decreased 7 percent year-over-year on average.

Nationally, luxury home prices show strong price increases

Growth in high paying jobs and the volatility of the stock market has led luxury home buyers back into the real estate market. Despite the increase in home ownership costs, demand for high-end homes continues to rise.  The entry level price point for luxury homes increased 4.6 percent year-over-year on average. And, of the 91 luxury real estate markets analyzed, 17 of them showed prices grow a minimum of 10 percent compared to last year.

Additionally, just over half of the luxury markets analyzed now have an entry point of at least $1 million. Also, the average days on market for the luxury market were 105 days.  This represents a 7 percent decrease.  And, approximately 66 percent of the luxury markets  are seeing inventory move faster.  Overall, homes sold above $1 million increased 25 percent.

Naples continues to attract luxury buyers from northern states

Luxury home prices in multiple of Florida markets continue to grow. Florida does not have a state income tax and northern buyers continue to chose to move to the state for tax savings.  This month, the state had two of the fastest growing luxury counties, reinforcing the demand for luxury properties is strong. In particular, Collier County and Sarasota County are growing quickly. Entry level home prices are 15-20 percent higher year-over-year. The median days on market of luxury properties in these two counties have decreased 22 percent over last year.

Sizzling Hot SW Florida Property Sales

SW Florida Property Sales Remain Sizzling Hot

SW FL Property SalesAlthough we are in the summer months, SW Florida Property Sales remain on fire for the week of June 9th in Ft. Myers, Bonita Springs and Estero.  There were 455 properties sold versus 293 properties sold during the week of June 2nd.  This significant increase in real estate actives shows the market continues to be strong despite the fact we are out of season. The question is are we still a seasonal area when it comes to real estate?  Season continues to last longer each year as more people move to the area for 6 months of the year. Since residents who live in the state for at least six months each year do not have to pay state income tax they are flocking to the area to buy a second homes or retiring in the state of Florida.

Similar to last week, Fort Myers had the most real estate sales with 186 properties sold, up from 114 the previous week. Bonita Springs was second with 154 real estate transactions versus 103 properties sold the prior week. And, Estero finished the week with 108 transactions which is up from the week before when there were 74 sales.

So, of the 186 properties sold in Ft. Myers, 15 percent were condos, 30 percent were single family homes and 53 percent were vacant lots.  The remaining properties sold were mobile homes and commercial units.

Additionally, of the 154 closings in Bonita, 5 percent were mobile homes, 31 percent were single family homes, 19 percent were vacant lots and 38 percent were condos. Therefore, the other properties sold in Bonita Springs were commercial units, multi-family units and coops.

Finally, Estero also showed an increase in real estate transactions for the week. Of the 108 properties sold, 7 percent were mobile homes, 27 percent were vacant lots, 37 percent were condos and 26 percent were single family homes. Thus, the remaining real estate transactions in Estero were commercial units.

In summary, the significant number of SW Florida Property Sales in Lee County was broken down as follows: 134 single family homes, 130 condos, 159 vacant lots, 16 mobile homes, 9 commercial units, 5 multi-family units and 2 coops sold during the week.

Equity Golf CommunitiesSo, if you’re ready to begin your Estero or Bonita Springs Luxury Real Estate search for your dream home or condo, I encourage you to explore my website to find information about communities in Southwest Florida.  If golf is your game, I specialize in golf community real estate and would be happy to help you navigate the more than 100 different golf communities in our area.  If you prefer a more direct approach, I will provide a list of properties that meet your criteria and/or communities that meet your needs.

Bottom Line:

If you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it’s more complex than a typical home purchase.  As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf communities.  There are many different fee structures, membership options, pet restrictions, demographics and many other details that apply to the Southwest Florida golf communities.

Also, if you are considering new construction, 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. In fact, I may be able to help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.

If you’re looking for information about a specific community in Southwest Florida, please contact me and I will prepare a custom market report for you.  I will provide the market information and insights to help make sure you select your dream home!

SWFL Single Family Home Sales Smoking Hot

SWFL Single Family Home Sales Hotter than the Local Temperature

Single Family Home SaleAccording to the Bonita Springs-Estero REALTORS® latest market reports, SWFL Single Family Home Sales show significant increases for the month of May. Single family closed sales, pending sales and average prices were up double digits for the month.  Additionally, inventory also saw a significant increase at 13.8 percent above the same month last year.

Most notably, a significant number of single family home purchases were paid for in cash.  More than 70 percent of the single family homes sold in Bonita and Estero were cash sales.  Activity remains very strong despite the fact that it is off-season. So, when I say the market is hotter than the temperature,  I’m not kidding!

May 2018 Single Family Home Sales

Bonita Springs Estero Single Family Home Sales May 2018

Single Family Homebuyer Activity Highlights:

  • Closed sales increased 17.5 percent, up from 114 in May 2017 versus 134 in May 2018
  • Pending sales increased from 107 units up to 125 units or 16.8 percent
  • Average Sales Price went from $454,522 up to $559,248 which is a 23 percent increase
  • Inventory increased 13.8 percent from 529 single family homes in May ’17 up to 602 in May ’18
  • Days on Market fell from 142 days to 104 days which is a 26.8 decrease for the month

Even though inventory is increasing, the days on market continue to fall dramatically.  The result is homes priced appropriately are being bought quickly and at higher prices.  If you were waiting until summer for a good deal, you may not see the discounts you had anticipated.  If you are considering buying a home, consider purchasing now.  Prices are just going to continue to increase.  And, if you are thinking about selling, start prepping your house now.

May 2018 Condo Sales

Bonita SPrings Estero Condo Sales May 2018

Condo Homebuyer Activity Highlights:

  • Closed sales decreased slightly, 1.7  percent, from 115 in May 2017 down to 113 in May 2018
  • Pending sales increased from 90 units up to 103 units or 14.4 percent
  • Median Sales Price went up from $250,000 up to $255,000 which is a 2 percent increase
  • Inventory decreased 2.5 percent from 525 condos in May ’17 down to 512 in May ’18
  • Days on Market fell from 125 days to 113 days which is a 9.6 percent decrease for the month

Unlike single family home sales for the month, condo closed sales in May were lower than last May.  With the condo market cooling off a bit compared to single family homes in Bonita Springs and Estero, now would be an excellent time to purchase a property.

Bottom Line:

Currently, properties priced at fair market value continue to move quickly. Those properties overpriced remain on the market until they are re-priced. Sellers who are uncertain about listing now should reconsider as there is less competition during the summer months, but pricing is a key factor.
